A new study out of the University of Illinois looked at the effect of exercise on the brain health of 100 adults between 60 and 80.
Subjects wore accelerometers for a week. These devices detected and recorded their daily activity levels.1 Then researchers looked at changes in blood oxygen levels in the participants’ brains. This helps determine how well someone’s brain is functioning.2 And what they found surprised them…
Anyone who got moderate-to-vigorous levels of activity had a better brain. Researchers found these people were “more flexible, both cognitively and in terms of brain function, than their less-active peers.”
In other words, people who exercised the most could do things like process information and solve problems faster.
Even people who kept their activity light showed improvements in brain function. This could include something as simple as gardening or taking a quick walk around the block. A little physical activity is always better than none at all.
