It has long been known that exercise benefits the brain through improved vascular health, but scientists are beginning to discover that the benefits could be much more far-reaching. Watch Richard London, MD, Silverado Oak Village Medical Director, explain how exercise may be far more beneficial than previously believed.
Recent studies show an association between higher levels of physical activity and a slowing in cognitive decline and dementia onset. In some cases, an increase in the volume of the hippocampus (where Alzheimer’s starts) was observed. Based on this research, Silverado has made physical exercise a pillar of the Nexus program, which is designed to help defend against the onset and progression of many common dementias.
Exercises that can help your brain include, but are not limited to:
