New research suggests that cognitive impairment could be slowed by exercise training.
Exercise training is “likely to improve cognitive measures” according to a new set of guidelines published in the journal Neurology by the American Academy of Neurology.
The researchers say that 6.7 percent of adults in the U-S age 60 to 64 are affected by cognitive impairment.
They say exercise could help 8.4 percent of people age 65 to 69, and 10 percent of those 70 to 74.
They say that although it’s not yet conclusive that exercise would slow Mild Cognitive Impairment, researchers say the evidence is at least promising.
