 Exercise Boosts Brain Function
Researchers evaluated the findings from 111 studies on exercise and brain function and came to the conclusion that both aerobics and strength training are of great value to brain health at every age. This is especially the case for helping to maintain cognitive function in older age.

It is clear that one of the key reasons for this is that exercise increases the production of BDNF, a nervous system rejuvenation compound of the highest order.

We have previously reported that many nutrients also assist BDNF production (DHA, pantethine, acetyl-l-carnitine, zinc, blueberries, curcumin, niacin, and DHEA).

A combination of exercise and good nutrition is best for optimal brain rejuvenation and optimal cognitive performance at every age.
