Boost memory with exercise!
A new University of Maryland study has found that just 1 exercise session boosts brain circuits responsible for memory – including the hippocampus – which is affected first in Alzheimer’s disease.
Our founder, Elroy Vojdani MD, IFMCP is a big fan of intermittent fasting, and often incorporates it into his patients treatment plans.
A study published in the journal Scientific Reports found that this style of fasting can help fight aging and age-related cognitive decline.
The study showed that intermittent fasting boosts the metabolites leucine, isoleucine and ophthalmic acid – which maintain muscle and antioxidant activity – that decline with age.
Roughly 60-80% of patients with dementia have Alzheimer’s.
A new study in JAMA Neurology found that testing levels of neurofilament light in blood can help detect Alzheimer’s disease 10 years before symptoms – like a decline in memory – appear!
