Reverse Dementia in 3 Hours a Week!
Dear Living Well Daily Reader,
Let’s face it — no one wants to spend their golden years in the confusion or isolation that comes with dementia.
And if you or someone you love has been diagnosed with dementia, you’ve probably been told that there isn’t much you can do.
But it looks like that could all be about to change…
You see, Canadian researchers have just pinpointed a dead-simple way to keep your brain in top-notch shape even if you’re already having some memory troubles.
It only takes three hours out of your busy week and doesn’t cost a thing!
I’m talking about walking.
For years, researchers have known that walking can boost your heart health and help you stay fit.
And since heart health plays a key role in brain health, scientists from the University of British Columbia were curious to see if walking could also improve your brain.
For the study, researchers split a group of older folks who were already suffering from vascular cognitive impairment (VCI), a condition that causes memory and thinking problems due to blood vessel damage, into two groups.
One group took three one-hour walking classes every week for six months and the other didn’t.
Before and after the trial, all participants underwent cognitive tests and MRI brain scans to establish their brain function and cognitive ability.
After reviewing the data, the researchers found something incredible…
Folks who walked just three hours a week saw significant improvements in their cognitive functions.
Even better, they experienced changes in their brain activity, which resembled those of a healthier brain.
This means by walking just three short hours a week, you could improve your thinking ability and even improve the way your brain works!
Experts believe walking helps fight cognitive problems because it improves heart health and reduces your risk of developing brain-threatening conditions like high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.
If walking three hours a week seems like a challenge, start with a smaller goal and work your way up. Any walking is better than none at all.
