Natural Ways to Increase Brain Health, Part 2

 

By Paul Nussbaum, Ph.D., ABPP on January 18, 2013

 

Part Two – Physical Activity

As I mentioned in my previous post on this topic, there are five “pillars” of brain health – nutrition, physical activity, mental stimulation, socialization and spirituality. Each one is important to promote the health of your brain. Our last post covered nutrition. Today, we’ll talk about physical activity.

Most people are aware that exercise improves physical health. It strengthens muscles (including the heart), burns calories, and lowers blood pressure, among other benefits. But exercise has also been shown to improve brain health. According to the Alzheimer’s Research & Prevention Foundation, physical exercise reduces your risk of developing the disease by 50 percent. It accomplishes this amazing feat in a number of important ways.

Increases blood flow to the brain
A steady, healthy flow of blood to the brain is important for two reasons. First, the blood brings oxygen and other nutrients to the brain, which is essential for the brain to function. Second, increased blood flow also helps to serve as a catalyst at the chemical and cellular level helping to reduce and perhaps even remove toxins and plaque that can disrupt information processing.

Reverses the negative effects of stress
Physical activity releases hormones that soothe the brain and provide a nourishing environment for the growth of brain cells. Researchers have also discovered that people under stress who exercise regularly had fewer signs of aging brain cells.

Improves learning
Exercise increases the level of brain chemicals, which help make new brain cells. This makes it easier to learn. More complicated activities, like playing tennis or taking a dance class, provide the biggest brain boost because the addition of coordination challenges your brain even more.

Lifts depression
Exercise appears to stimulate the growth of neurons in certain brain regions, acting as a natural mood elevator. One study found that three sessions of yoga per week boosted participants’ levels of the brain chemical GABA, resulting in a better mood and decreased anxiety.

Fends off memory loss
Studies have shown that elderly adults who engaged in even a small amount of exercise – short walks, gardening, cleaning – scored better on mental tests that those who didn’t exercise at all. Those who were the most active scored the best and showed the least amount of mental decline.
