Physical exercise improves memory in both children and adults

(NaturalNews) It's not just good for your physical health: regular exercise and physical fitness can dramatically improve your cognitive health as well.

For example, a 2010 study published in the journal Brain Research found that physically fit 9- and 10-year-olds had significantly larger hippocampi (a region of the brain associated with memory and learning).

In keeping with this finding, the same children also scored higher on memory tests than their less-fit peers.

Likewise, in a 2008 research review published in the the Cochrane Library, researchers found that seniors who engaged in aerobic exercise between two and seven days per week scored significantly higher on tests of cognitive processing, visual and auditory attention, and even motor function than seniors who did not exercise comparably.

It is increasingly becoming clear that the human body is designed for physical activity. When we neglect to use our bodies, it's not just our hearts and lungs that suffer; our brain suffers too, and our cognitive abilities along with it.
