Scientists from Scotland proved that regular exercise slows the aging process of the human brain. Data were installed in the study, with participation of older people aged 65-70 years.
Volunteers were divided into three groups. The first group led a normal life, a second group of scientists were subjected to periodic physical exercise, the third group went in for sports regularly.
In the third group, noted scientists, changes in the brains of people were least pronounced. Pensioners, ignoring the sport, had a more "old" brain, which progressed degenerative changes.
Scientists suggest that sport activates metabolic processes not only in muscle but also in all organs and systems. At moderate loads sport useful at any age, it helps to keep in good physical shape and health for many years.
