Exercise to Combat Alzheimer’s

New study by the University of Maryland School of Public Health  finds exercise has a “powerful” effect against Alzheimer’s.

The study analyzed 17 participants with mild cognitive impairment (MCI) – early memory loss associated with Alzheimer’s disease – alongside 18 controls. Both groups were of similar age, gender, education, genetic risk and had similar medication use.

The participants were asked to carry out a 12-week exercise program, which consisted of walking on a treadmill at moderate intensity while being supervised by a personal trainer.

MRI test taken after the exercise program revealed a significant increase in the intensity of brain activation in 11 brain regions!
