LEG STRENGTH and BRAIN HEALTH.

Southern Spinal Care

A recent animal study which examined mice that moved freely and those who had their legs restricted showed brain deterioration in the latter. This means that the organs of the body are also affected and overall health deteriorates.

As we age we move less and hence our health deteriorates.

How much movement is necessary? The more you do the better. The more muscles of the body that are stimulated then so will brain health be stimulated. It was thought that exercising gives you a euphoric feeling from the exercise chemicals made, however, what we know now its the brain function that improves and gives you that feeling.

You may eat healthy, however, that’s not enough. You must move a lot daily and vigorously. The more you do then the more your brain remains healthy and overall health improves.

Start today, your brain and body will thank you for it.
