Work Out in 20s May Help You in 40s

Work Out

Exercising is the best way to improve your brain function. It was found that people exercising in middle age are not likely to be afflicted with dementia when they come to 60s and 70s.

Recent study shows that young adult who work out can have improved mental capacity. This 25 year study consulting 3,381 people is progressing Coronary Artery Risk Development in Young Adults Study and the results were posted at the American Heart Association Journal Circulation.

During the study, blood pressure, sugar and the cholesterol levels of the participants were noted every 2-5 years. At the end, tests were held to measure their memory, thinking speed and even the mental flexibility of those participants.

It was found that, people who had slightly high sugar and cholesterol level in 18s and 30s scored significantly low in thinking tests in 40-50s.

It is not clear which biological mechanism can explain this relation, but there is one theory says that those three indicators are responsible for plague buildup in the arteries by narrowing them. Therefore, less healthy people may have a higher probability of having plague buildup in their arteries which connects the brain and heart.

Researcher David Jacobs said that,

"Things which are good for your heart are probably good for your brain too."
The authors of this study say that health and exercise help us to lessen the peril of mental decline related to old age.
