Exercise: Good for brain health, too.

Here at NuStep, brain health is a hot topic of discussion. Evidence shows that the factors that contribute mightily to cardiovascular disease and stroke – obesity, high blood pressure and diabetes – also negatively impact cognitive health.

When it comes to brain health, many of the same healthy lifestyle steps we take to care for the rest of our body – especially how we care for our heart – also apply.

According to Dr. Cynthia R. Green, a leading brain health expert and founder of Total Brain Health®, regular aerobic exercise boosts daily intellectual performance and significantly lowers the risk of dementia. It can also help you lose and/or maintain a healthy weight, another way to reduce your risk factors. And by all means, get good sleep. Having a good night’s rest can also impact your memory performance and brain health.
