With aging, rises the need to do more exercises and be physically active, advice experts, who explained in their recent statements that exercising in your 70s can help people stop their brain from shrinking, which often leads to showing the signs of ageing linked to dementia.
Above are the recommendations of experts from Edinburgh University, who ran brain scans over 638 people past the age of retirement. They noticed that the ones, who were most physically active, reported the least shrinkage of their brains.
The scans were run over a period of three years. Researchers added that suggesting exercises at the older age do not involve strenuous ones rather going for a walk several times a week is beneficial too.
The facts were revealed by the experts in the journal Neurology, in which researchers also made a comparison between different workouts to bring out the best details to the people. They said that a tricky crossword or other mentally challenging activities like reading a book or socializing with friends can do a workout for the mind but it has a little impact as compared to walking or exercising.
Their suggestions were based upon their research that the brain's white matter i. e. the wiring that transmits messages round the brain is less damaged and had more grey matter in people, who are physically more active at the older age than the ones, who did little exercise.
