10 Benefits Of Exercise On The Brain And Body – Why You Need Exercise

Why Physical Exercise is Vital for a Healthy Brain and Body.
Physical fitness through exercise is one of the most common pieces of advice offered by medics across the planet. There are many benefits of exercising when done correctly. Some of the most common include improved blood flow, general body fitness, weight loss, and stress relief. This video seeks to focus on some of the direct benefits of physical exercise to the brain and the body.

1 Boost The Memory
Studies conducted on the hippocampus among children, adults and the elderly showed that the brain structure grew after aerobic exercise. The hippocampus is the part of the brain that holds the memory, and therefore crucial for learning abilities.

2 Improve Concentration
Exercise improves the ability to focus on one task, ignore distractions, and also hold and manipulate information. Aerobic exercises improve retention among students, and therefore crucial for children, adults and even the elderly. As well

3 Improve Mental Health
Physical exercise is a great mood enhancer. The feeling of elation experienced after exercise is real and should be used as an alternative stress reliever. A 2010 study conducted for eight weeks showed a significant decrease in the amygdala after yoga and meditation. The amygdala is the part of the brain that is implicated in processing stress, fear and anxiety.

4 Slowing Cognitive Decline
Physical exercise delays the onset of mental wear and tear, and dementia, especially among the elderly. It pays to exercise early in life to avoid mental illnesses that come with old age. A study published on Neurology suggested that women who were physically fit in their middle ages were 88% less likely to develop dementia than their peers who were only moderately fit.

5 Physical Fitness and Weight Loss
A study published in the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism showed that an active exercise training program was ideal for reducing weight and improving physical fitness among obese children. The effects were possible even without a change in dietary composition.

6 Protection of the Body against Age-related Decline
According to a study published in the Journal of Aging Research suggests that physical activity maintained throughout life is accompanied with a lower risk of developing chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular and coronary heart diseases associated with chronological ageing.

7 Improved Heart and Lung Health
When done on a regular basis, physical activity, both moderate and intense, lowers the risk of developing coronary heart disease. Regular exercise strengthens the heart muscles and their ability to pump blood to the lungs and the rest of the body. The lungs automatically pick up the pace to keep up with the exercise and, therefore, become stronger.

8 Increases Lean Mass and Strength
High-frequency training and low-frequency training both contribute to improvements in lean mass and strength in men and women. Strength training also helps alterations in metabolism, increase in bone density, reduces the risk of injury, and even rebuilds lost muscle. The buildup of muscle is necessary for preventing a resting metabolic rate that causes obesity.

9 Improved Cholesterol Levels
Regular physical activity and exercise are effective in lowering cholesterol levels in the blood and thus prevent the onset of coronary heart disease, heart attacks and strokes. Clinicians can recommend aerobic training, or resistance training to ensure that healthy cholesterol levels are achieved.

10 Prevention and Management of Diabetes
Regular exercise can help delay or prevent the development of type 2 diabetes by 60%. Daily physical activity, aerobic exercise, or resistance training prevents sugar-build up in the blood. Insulin sensitivity increases and the body can take up glucose during and after activity. Any form of physical activity that helps the body burn calories, e.g. walking, cleaning, mowing the lawn is beneficial and should be included in daily routines.

    This is great insight thank you

  7. Comment Drops

    This type of information is very necessary and informative, because the importance of exercise in people's lives is very clear. Exercising is fundamental for any structure of the human body, and these studies/researches increasingly support the science of movement.

  8. Comment Drops

    I think talking about exercise is very important because people are very sedentary. This video explains 10 benefits, for example: exercise stimulates the release of growth factors in the brain, improves brain activity, improves our mood and sleep, and reduces stress and anxiety problems.

  9. Comment Drops

    I liked this video because it's very instructive. In the past, I didn't like exercise. In those days, I thought exercise was very boring. I think I had no idea about its benefits, such as a healthy brain, healthy coronaries, and heart. Nowadays I am 37 years old and I see how it's difficult to keep a healthy mind and body. Another sad thing in the video is about dementia. In this context, my grandmother had Alzheimer and my mother had signaled a disease linked to memory. And in the end, exercises are very important to prevent these diseases. In this context, my grandfather (my father’s father) and my father had a heart attack. Exercises are very important and only bring benefits.

  10. Comment Drops

    It's amazing how regular exercise is good for our health, not just for our body but mainly for our brain. It’s important to include exercise in our daily routine to leave sedentarism behind and have a more healthy life.

  11. Comment Drops

    Physical exercise should be practiced by everybody because it is very important for our life. Through exercise we can improve our brain and body. So, some benefits are mentioned in this video like, for example, boost the memory; improve concentration and mental health; slowing cognitive decline; physical fitness and weight loss; protection of the body against age-related decline; improved heart and lung health; increases lean mass and strength; improved cholesterol levels and prevention and management of diabetes. I think the population should change their lifestyle and start to do physical exercise or other types of sports like yoga (meditation). Besides, it is important to include natural foods in our daily life. Therefore, physical exercise associated with good alimentation will enable a better quality of life.

  12. Comment Drops

    The benefits of regular physical activity go beyond body fitness. It's no secret the brain controls our body, so, obviously, it is related to some types of hormones. Hormones are substances that work signalizing our cells, for example, endorphin and dopamine. These are related to wellness and happiness, respectively.

    Found your channel and it's so informative. I feel you are telling my story. I have struggled with hypothyroidism and my antibodies are high. They suspect an autoimmune like hashimoto thyroiditis. I need to lose 45 pounds. I Am taking my thyroid meds. I have eliminated gluten and sugar and eating more whole foods. Walking 1 mile (@ 3.7 speed). Lifting weights. About 6 weeks. I haven't seen any weight loss. But sticking with it because I feel so much stronger!! Not so much about the numbers but how I feel and how my clothes fit. Wondering about the recipe for the hanger bombs? Where. I am not on instagram.
