A Brisk Walk Five Times A Week Helps Combat Brain Aging And Memory Loss

Go ahead and take a walk—it’s good for you. University of Texas researchers found that middle aged and older Americans scored higher on cognitive tests and were less likely to report memory loss after getting in the habit of walking often.

The participants were also found to have better blood flow in their brain, which scientists believe helps to keep brain cells fed with a steady stream of oxygen and nutrients. Ultimately, the results suggest that short, but consistent and frequent aerobic exercise may help fight the effects of brain-aging, and in turn reduce dementia risks.
