Aerobic Exercise and Blood Flow to Brain

Aerobic Exercise and Blood Flow to Brain

New studies show that Aerobic Exercise increases Blood Flow to Brain in older adults.

Scientists at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center have conducted studies on this. The results show that the Aerobic Exercise training reduced Central Arterial Stiffness and increased Cerebral Blood Flow. They conducted tests in patients with mild cognitive impairment – those are in the early stage of Alzheimer’s Disease. The report is published by Sci-News on 30th March 2021.

People at the age of 65 and above could have slight changes to their brain that affect memory, decision-making and/or reasoning skills. Previous studies had revealed that blood flow to the brain, lower than the normal levels and stiffer blood vessels leading to the brain are found on such patients.

According to the results of the new studies, regular aerobic exercise may help improving the mild cognitive impairment and memory in healthy older adults.
