Exercise Ups Brain Neuron Production in Oldies

Sedentary lifestyle among elderly people has been constantly linked to worsening of various health complications. In contrast, adequate exercise among this particular group of patients can do wonders to combat brain shrinkage caused by aging, researchers from University of Illinois reported.
According to the study which appeared in The Journal of Gerontology: Medical Sciences, an older person whose brain neuron production is coming to a halt still has hope. The researchers found out that walking briskly for three hours everyday can stimulate biochemical changes that may eventually lead to increased release of brain neurons. This is in contrast to popular belief that the elderly can no longer produce new brain neurons.

An article based on the initial study of Lifestyle Interventions and Independence for Elders focused on the need for a specific exercise routine in light of improving the health and lifestyle of sedentary elderly prone to have impaired faculties.
