Boost Your Memory 30% in Just 4 Minutes?! (WOW)
Brain health is something that should be on everyone’s radar – especially with Alzheimer’s disease projected to reach epidemic proportions in the next 30 years.
But keeping your memory sharp as the years go by and avoiding dementia are two very different issues.
And if your primary concern right now is remembering those items on the grocery list or never misplacing your glasses, I don’t blame you.
The good news?
A recent study reveals a quick way to give your memory a 30% boost that doesn’t involve overhauling your lifestyle.
Exercise is good for a lot of things.
It’s good for strength and balance, flexibility, heart health, mood, and so much more.
But more recent studies show some pretty impressive benefits for your brain and cognitive function.
So how much exercise do you need to do to help strengthen your mind?
Turns out, not very much!
In a study published in Applied Physiology, Nutrition, and Metabolism, researchers studied healthy adults between 60-88 years old. They participated in three exercise sessions a week.
One group engaged in high-intensity interval training, which consisted of four sets of high-intensity exercise on a treadmill for four minutes, followed by a recovery period.
One group engaged in moderate-intensity continuous training, which involved working out at a moderate level for a straight 50 minutes.
A third control group just engaged in some light stretching.
The researchers measured improvements in memory by testing the function of newborn brain cells generated by the exercise (since they’re more active than mature brain cells). These new cells are great at forming new connections and memories.
The group participating in the high-intensity interval training (just short four-minute bursts!) had a 30% increase in their high-interference memory.
This is the kind of memory that helps you tell the difference between two types of cars.
They also found that improved fitness levels had a direct effect on improved memory.
These results were especially evident in older adults.
These are really encouraging results, especially if you’re an older adult that hasn’t been engaging in physical activity on a regular basis.
It shows that it’s never too late to reap the benefits of exercise for your brain OR your body—and that it doesn’t take a lot of time to get noticeable results.
This study confirms the results of a study published earlier this year showing that just one 20-minute session on an exercise bike could immediately improve cognitive function and working memory.
Other studies have shown that a single workout can actually make your brain bigger and boost your memory—while working out on a regular basis can help maintain that mental boost.
