A Little Exercise, Vitamin D Can Help Fight Off Alzheimer’s

“Two new studies have revealed that a little exercise and vitamin D can help you fight off Alzheimer’s disease and dementia. The studies focused on different ways to help reduce the risk and progression of cognitive decline. The first study of the pair had researchers focus on a group of 1,200 people, all around the age of 70 or above. The study took place in Framingham, MA and revolved around the level of exercise that people in this town attained. What they found by watching exercise levels was that those who were able to take part in heavy amounts of exercise reduced their risk for Alzheimer’s and dementia by 40%. Researchers concluded in this study that those who got very little exercise were nearly 50% more likely to develop Alzheimer’s than those who were in the heavy exercise group.”
