Another great reason to get off the couch and take a brisk walk daily, it may be the best way to prevent Alzheimer's disease. Researchers found aerobic exercise at a moderate intensity could delay symptoms and improve brain function. This new study published in the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society reveals for the first time that aerobic exercise offers more protection than other types of activity in slowing or stopping the disease due to the increased blood flow to the brain. In other words, a brisk walk around the block is a better way to delay Alzheimer's symptoms than push-ups or squats and the benefits. The researchers suggest 75 minutes of vigorous aerobic training, and muscle-strengthening exercises at least two or more days a week.
