Researchers Find Link between Exercise and Lowered Alzheimer’s Risk Factor

 

A new study out of John Hopkins University School for Medicine has found that getting regular exercise may prevent against the developed of degenerative neurological diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Researchers found that mice that regularly exercised had increased production of a protein enzyme called SIRT3 that can protect brain cells against the stress-generated hormones that have the effect of creating brain plaque. In recent years, researchers have found that untreated stress can lead to an increase in brain plaque, a fatty substance that stops the brain from transmitting information from one cell to another.

While additional research will have to be done to verify the study’s findings, John Hopkins doctors are very optimistic about their findings. Even with all the advances in medicine that have been made in treating cognitive dysfunction, Alzheimer’s disease has remained difficult to treat adequately. However, a number of recent studies have found links between Alzheimer’s and stress. That being the case, it’s more important than ever to combat the effects of stress by eating right, exercising regularly and taking time out to relax. There are a variety of different ways to do that, but some of the simplest and most effective ways to fight stress include doing things as simple as listening to your favorite album or getting a quick massage session on your lunch hour.
