Poor Fitness Linked to Weaker Brain

Improving your fitness reduces the risk of dementia and Alzheimer disease.
Exercise improves white matter in the brain which is highly correlated improved brain function. White matter is comprised of millions of bundles of nerve fibers used by neurons to communicate across the brain.
If you find yourself out of breath throughout the day during simple tasks like going up the stairs, it's time to get into shape otherwise you are setting yourself up for reduced brain function!
Make sure that during your exercise routine you are getting out of breath enough so that it would be hard to have a conversation with someone.
