“Stride Solution” Slashes Dementia Risk Over 50%
I love it when studies confirm the health benefits of something we all do anyway.
Because it doesn’t take a lot of extra effort to get REAL results.
A recent study highlighted how an activity just about every one of us engages in daily… even multiple times a day… could protect your brain as you age.
PLUS, it honed in on EXACTLY how much you have to do it every day to reduce your dementia risk.
(It’s less than you’d think!)
Researchers analyzed data on more than 72,000 people from age 40-79.
They broke them into groups based on how MANY steps they took per day and how quickly (or purposefully) they took them.
Seven years later, here’s what they found:
Those who took 9,826 steps per day were 50 percent less likely to have dementia.
However, those who walked more “purposefully” (more than 40 steps per minute, on average) sent their risk dropping even FURTHER (57 percent) with fewer steps (6,315).
But even those who walked less than half that amount—at just 3,800 steps per day—saw an impressive 25 percent drop in risk.
If you spend most of your days in your easy chair, I can see how 10,000 steps would be daunting. But 4,000 steps? That’s something just about anyone can do.
It works out to about 1.5-2 miles, depending on your stride. And that’s over the entire day, not necessarily from a morning power walk.
If you have no idea how many steps you take in a day, consider shelling out $10 for a basic pedometer.
See how many steps you tend to take daily without even trying, then set small goals to increase your efforts from there.
This study shows that the more you walk, the better. But that you don’t have to walk a marathon to see a measurable decrease in your dementia risk.
Time to get moving!
