Want A Healthy Brain?

More research shows the importance of adding this activity to your lifestyle if you want to live longer and ward off cognitive decline.

Physical exercise is important when it comes to maintaining a healthy brain. Scientists found that Growth Hormone (stimulated by exercise) increases the amount of stem cells that actively generate new nerve cells in the brain. Growth Hormone also slows and can even reverse the decline in new nerve cell formation normally seen as our bodies age.
