I forgot where I read this...   ;-)

Exercising for just 10 minutes at least twice a week helps prevent Alzheimer’s disease

 

Researchers in South Korea examined the likelihood of developing Alzheimer’s disease in nearly 250,000 patients with mild cognitive impairment patients with more memory and thinking struggles than is normal for someone their age. People with mild cognitive impairment are ten times more likely to develop the disease in comparison with the general population.

 

Those who carried out moderate physical activity for at least ten minutes more than once per week had an 18 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease. Among the patients who exercised, those who exercised three to five times per week had a 15 percent lower risk of developing the brain disease than those who exercised less than that.

 

Patients who started exercising after their diagnosis of mild cognitive impairment had an 11 percent lower risk of developing Alzheimer’s.

Researchers believe quercetin and DHBA act in combination to promote neurogenesis and brain function when consumed in high amounts.

“The effects were comparable to those seen after physical exercise – a known stimulus for neurogenesis,”

 

 

 

As Ellen famously once said:

"5 years ago my grandmother's doctor told her to walk a few blocks every day.

Now we don't now where the hell she is."
