What are the best brain health exercises?

Exercise has always been seen as one of the key pillars to keep the body fresh and mind sharp and healthy as we age. But what type of exercise is best? Are they all the same?

Researchers examined the results of brain health on rats after running them through varied exercise programs. According to the researchers at the University of Jyvaska in Finland, below are the best brain health exercises to do.

  1. Running
  2. Weight Lifting
  3. High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

These three brain health exercises were identified and tracked across three groups of rats for a seven week period. The researchers injected the rats’ brains with a fluid that allowed them to track activity in the hippocampus of the rats. This activity identified the development of new brain cells anywhere in the brain but focused on the hippocampus because this is the area of the brain associated and used for learning and memory. The researchers hypothesized that whichever exercise stimulated new brain cell creation for use in learning or memory would help measure that exercise’s ability to stimulate brain growth, development and regeneration.

Brain Health Exercises Experiment Activities

Running: rats jogged on wheels in their cages

Weight Lifting: rats climbed walls with weights attached to their tails

HIIT: rats were placed on treadmills and forced to sprint/keep up at varying speeds and intervals

Running was the winner!! The rats jogging on a where showed more neurogenesis than the other groups of rats. The HIIT rats experienced some improvement, however, the weight trained rats showed no improvement. The Finnish scientist concluded that “in order to promote [adult hippocampal neurogenesis] maximally, exercise should be aerobic and sustained.”

Testosterone helps regulate cortisone, which is a stress hormone, and aff­ects the efficiency of our brain’s neurotransmitters. When men suff­er from decreased testosterone levels they lose some ability to e­ffectively regulate cortisol levels, which can cause neurotransmitters malfunction and lapses in memory. This is one of the reasons why cognitive issues are highly correlated with decreasing testosterone levels and you see higher incidence of cognitive impairment in men than you do in women.
