New [EASY!] Treatment for Sleep Apnea
Improves sleep AND brain function
You probably have already heard that sleep apnea can take a toll on your health.
In addition to raising your risk of heart disease and stroke, it can also put you on the fast track to cognitive decline.
Fortunately, there’s a simple way to kill two birds with one stone.
See, it improves BOTH sleep apnea and brain function at the same time.
What is this revolutionary new treatment?
For this study of 47 adults with moderate to severe sleep apnea, half exercised for 60 minutes three times per week, and the other half didn’t.
After six months, those who didn’t exercise had experience a decline in their brain glucose metabolism. This refers to the brain’s ability to utilize glucose, its main source of fuel.
On the other hand, those who exercised experienced the following improvements:
- Increased capacity for exercise
- Improvements in brain glucose metabolism
- Reductions in sleep apnea symptoms
- Boost in cognitive function (specifically, a 32 percent improvement in attention and executive function)
That just goes to show you that a little exercise can go a long way toward improve your overall health.
This study adds credence to a previous small study showing that exercise could improve executive function and brain glucose metabolism in adults who were at risk of Alzheimer’s.
It’s worth noting that sleep apnea typically occurs in obese individuals. They often experience a narrowing of the airway at the back of the throat, making it harder to breathe while lying down.
The most common treatment for sleep apnea is a CPAP machine, which pushes air down your airway. It works great, but it doesn’t cure the condition, and it doesn’t do anything to combat an underlying cause like obesity.
That’s where exercise comes in.
It has the potential to strike at the root of the condition by decreasing body fat, especially around your airways.
This represents a powerful tool in the fight against this condition — one that everyone with sleep apnea can (and should) start using today.
