There is new research and speculation that Alzheimer’s and dementia are really just Type 3 Diabetes. In other words, it’s caused by eating too much sugar.
Exercising is a great way to keep your body healthy and reduce those sugars. Research has long shown that people who exercise daily are healthier, eat healthier foods, and retain their health and mental well-being far longer than those who don’t.
Many assisted living and nursing homes have daily exercise classes for the residents. For these businesses, the benefits of exercise far outweigh the costs.
Exercise does not directly work on the brain. It works on the hormones, blood oxygen levels, and nutrient flows around the body. With better control of the whole body, the brain has higher levels of nutrients, oxygen, and blood. And it has reduced sugars, which is beneficial for everyone.
