The anti aging effect of exercise

One well know aspect of the aging process is cognitive decline – decline in the way that our brains function often seen as memory loss.

Over the years we’ve turned to many different ‘tools’ from cross words to video games to try and reduce this decline but a recent study has shown that regular exercise from middle age can prevent 20 years of aging for a person’s memory and ward off dementia. The researchers encouraged people that it was ‘never too late to start’ but ideally the regular exercise would start before cognitive decline had set in.

So take this research finding and use it as additional motivation to set aside time for exercise and make this investment for your own health and future quality of life.
