According to a recent study in cognitive science research, exercise can stimulate a brain-boosting enzyme called GPLD1. Researcher, Dr. Ileana Berman discusses the development:

As it turns out, exercise is not only good for the body, but also for the brain!  That’s right, through exercise, we are actually able to effectively promote brain health.  The enzyme, known as GPLD1, has recently proven to slow down age-related cognitive decline.  GPLD1 is increased through physical exercise.  In effect, being well-exercised and physically active may also mean maintaining a healthier and more active brain and cognitive state!

This incredible cognitive science research breakthrough was discovered thanks to a study conducted by researchers at the University of California.  Completed in tandem with UCSF Memory and Aging Center, this study may be an incredible breakthrough for Alzheimer’s research.
