Exercise can reduce depression and improve memory
Manchester: The countless benefits of exercise keep coming and going. Now, 23 research studies have found that exercise reduces depression at all ages, strengthens the brain and restores memory.
New research shows that exercise strengthens brain functions, its circuits and its structure. Even the benefits of daily walking cannot be underestimated.
In the first phase, Dr. Joseph Firth of the University of Manchester advised hundreds of psychiatric patients to exercise and walk. Some of them practiced and found that exercise in any form helps a lot in reducing depression.
On the other hand, even after the publication of 23 research papers and surveys since 2016, it has come to light that occasional walk and exercise are a kind of medicine for depression and stress.
On the one hand, antidepressants and antidepressants work very slowly and their positive effects appear weeks later. But exercise can speed up their effectiveness and make any therapy or medicine a success. Surprisingly, exercise also reduces the side effects of antidepressants.
According to another study, if you are 50 years old and want to improve memory for the rest of your life, make it a habit to exercise three times a week from now on. It improves phased or episodic memory in the 60’s and 70’s. On the other hand, after an illness or injury, depression and stress can be reduced with exercise.
Dozens of studies and clinical trials have been conducted in this regard. One study found that exercise increases brain-driven neurotrophic factor (BDNF). It grows brain cells and has an effect on the memory center, the hippocampus. It improves the brain and reduces stress.
