Exercise May Help Alzheimer's by Nick Mitchell

General Health

We are always recommending to our personal training clients the importance of getting the whole family, both young and old, to exercise. A recent US study has shown that exercise could play a part in staving off Alzheimer’s as it improves blood flow to the brain.

By studying the brains of humans and mice, researchers in the USA have discovered that a slow, chronic reduction of blood sugar can trigger some forms of Alzheimer’s. They surmised that depriving the brain of energy leads to the build-up of sticky clumps of protein which they believe is a cause of the disease.
