is called cardiovascular exercise for good reason: It strengthens the heart and lungs, improving your ability to exercise longer (functional capacity), along with your stamina and fitness.

increases hippocampal volume it can help maintain brain age.
As the researchers examined the studies, they discovered that older adults who did aerobic exercise
by itself experienced a three times greater level of improvement in cognitive function than those who participated in combined aerobic training and strength training exercises.
USA], Jan 27 ( ANI ): Aerobic exercise
may be more effective than other types of exercise in mildly delaying and slightly improving Alzheimer's symptoms, according to a study.
In the study, published recently in the American Heart Association's journal Circulation, the aerobic exercise
group took part in high- and moderate-intensity aerobic exercise
at least four days a week.
Intervention in the experimental group were supervised structured aerobic exercise
training programme, routine medication and dietary, while the control group was treated by routine medication and dietary plan for 25 weeks at 3 days per week for both groups.

Whilst the most common and accepted first line treatment of MDD involves psychotropic medications, including anti-depressant medications such as selective-serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), aerobic exercise
and focused-attention (FA) meditation alone are also recognised to reduce symptoms of depression.
Two-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) was performed with the ApoE knockout and aerobic exercise
as factors for the examinations of interactions and main effects.
I hope that we are moving toward being able to demonstrate that regular, moderate aerobic exercise
can attenuate the effects of both aging and Alzheimer's.
