Physically active adults have younger looking brains
If you have been following our newsletters for a while, you may remember reading about effects of physical activity on brain health (link to previous newsletters below). Since then, studies have continued to provide evidence that physical activity is beneficial to the brain, both in terms of brain structure and brain function. However, quantifying the benefits of physical activity to the brain is challenging. One way to look at this is through brain age. A current Lifebrain study supports the view that physical fitness may maintain a younger brain later in life.
