Stick to running when you are young
Exercise habits at a young age will become a healthy capital for middle-aged and elderly people.
According to Taiwan media reports, the latest US research indicates that young people in their 20s can protect their brain power if they stick to running and exercise their cardiopulmonary functions.
When you reach middle age, your thinking ability, memory will be better, and it will help prevent cognitive impairment.
The University of Minnesota research team started in 1985 with 2747 people aged 18?
A 30-year-old healthy adult was used as the study object.
In the test of the subjects’ cardiopulmonary function, the researchers asked them to run on the treadmill at full speed until they could not run or pant, and they could run for an average of 10 minutes.
Twenty years later, the researchers asked the same running test at an angle, and the average was 2 fewer runs.
After another five years, researchers are asked to take a visual memory test to test their cognitive abilities, including language memory, the speed of brain dominating actions, and their ability to perform.
In the language memory test, the researchers asked them to look at 15 words at a glance and think about them after 10 minutes. In the speed test of brain dominance, the researchers required to remember the numbers indicated by some meaningless symbols;In the ability test, let the brains make a sharp turn, such as writing the word “yellow” with a green pen, and then ask what color the pen is.
The study found that in the first running test 25 years ago, every 1 minute of reset was more accurate than the language memory test.
12 words, meaningless symbols instead of numbers are more accurate than 0.
In the two tests before and after, the smaller the difference in running time, the better the performance in the performance test.
If people remember one more word in a memory test, the risk of suffering from cognitive impairment will decrease by 18% after 10 years.
The head of the study, Dr. Jacob, pointed out that from the test results, aerobic exercises such as trimming, running, swimming, cycling can be beneficial to brain health and reduce the risk of cognitive impairment.
Coincidentally, a new study from the University of Tsukuba and Chuo University also shows that jogging for only 10 minutes a day can improve cognitive function.
This study confirmed for the first time that light physical activity can also bring good health effects to the brain, which is indeed good news for older people.
