It has always been said how important physical exercise is for the health of the body. Now it turns out that if you want to keep your brain young, it's just as important according to experts: "We know that people who exercise physically protect their brains significantly in terms of aging, Alzheimer's and dementia problems," says the vice president. of the Spanish Society of Neurology (SEN), Doctor José Miguel Lainez.
The fact of getting old comes for everyone, what's good? Which means you are alive! And although it is true that it is a process in which all your nature is affected, including your brain. A healthy lifestyle will help preserve it better. "The brain also loses brain mass over the years, and while 100 percent avoidance is impossible, many things can be done to make this happen as late as possible with the least consequences."
It is very important to take care of vascular health and exercise is essential for this. "You have to be clear is that the brain is a very irrigated organ and is very sensitive to lack of irrigation."
Another fundamental detail: maintaining intellectual activity. "It is not clear that we can modify the number of neurons, but it is evident that we can modify the connections and the more intellectual activities we carry out, with training, with study, the sooner the better." Dr. Lainez recommends training intellectually from childhood to adolescence, without forgetting adulthood. "At all times you are able to enhance intellectual activity, but the sooner the better."
