The ketogenic diet was designed in 1924 by Dr. Russell Wilder at the Mayo Clinic. It originally was created to treat epilepsy patients. It has recently become very popular for weight loss, due to the results it gives. It has been proven by researchers it can help cancer, alzheimer’s and type II diabetes patients.
The brain is one of the most important part of the body. Since it’s so important, keeping it healthy should be a priority. The following is an outline of the ways one can keep the brain healthy.
Aerobic training has been found to increase connectivity in the temporal lobe in a year, in a group of college-aged young adults by simply walking. Meanwhile, a more vigorous intensity aerobic exercise, like running for 30 minutes, led to faster reaction times and vocabulary learning. Women who were aged 65 and over were less likely to develop cognitive decline if they were physically active.
The mental benefits of exercise are not just for adults, but for kids, too. Exercise is crucial for kids’ developing brains. Those who get more exercise tend to get better grades, have better concentration, and even get a better night’s sleep.
Exercise also spurs the development of new nerve cells and increases the connections between brain cells (synapses). This results in brains that are more efficient, plastic, and adaptive, which translates into better performance in aging animals. Exercise also lowers blood pressure, improves cholesterol levels, fights diabetes, and reduces mental stress, all of which can help your brain as well as your heart.
