It can be difficult to accept a diagnosis of dementia or Alzheimer's disease. But what if there are signs of cognitive decline that help prevent these conditions?
Recent studies have shown that bone strength is directly related to brain health and can prevent situations such as brain atrophy and dementia.
Often used interchangeably, dementia and Alzheimer's disease are two different disorders of the central nervous system.
As we now know, there is a direct link between the physical function of the calf muscles and proper brain function.
Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease are all narrow diagnoses, but studies suggest that there may be signs of brain dysfunction hidden behind the legs.
Healthy blood pressure plays an important role in brain changes and health, so it's important to do everything on your own to stay healthy and reduce your risk of dementia.
High blood pressure can put you at risk for a heart attack, stroke, vascular stenosis, or cardiovascular disease. High SBP and DBP can be dangerous, but too low blood pressure can cause health problems. In the article we discussed, participants with low blood pressure (hypotension) also showed a high degree of cognitive decline.
Loss of muscle mass in the lower legs can be detrimental because the calf muscles can regulate blood flow to the brain.
Lack of exercise can be epidemic and can lead to adverse health effects such as unhealthy obesity index, obesity, and slow metabolism (all risk factors for premature death).
We knew very little that lack of physical activity, especially in the lower legs, could affect physical functioning in the brain.
Regular exercise has as many benefits as reducing fat, reducing the symptoms of depression, improving muscle strength and increasing lean body mass, and increasing life expectancy. And now we know this: cognitive function. It is very important that this new information has the potential to allow young, middle-aged, and older people to perform regular resistance exercises and change the way their brains work.
