We all know that physical exercise is good for our health. But did you know that physical exercise combined with cognitive exercise can help mitigate the onset of dementia? In fact, with the new app by SMART Brain Aging, which encourages physical exercise followed by cognitive exercise, you can delay the onset of dementia by 2.25 years.
It is a great idea to conduct at least 30 minutes of physical exercise at least a few times a week, but adding in cognitive exercises after your workout gives you a significant chance to fight off vascular dementia and to mitigate Alzheimer’s.
After conducting years of research and finding the benefits physical and cognitive exercise has on the brain, Dr. John DenBoer and his team at SMART Brain Aging developed the new app that offers cognitive therapy, best to be used right after exercise. You can download the app here.
The app focuses on:
- Processing speed
- Executive functioning
For a healthy brain as you age, you should maintain a healthy diet and exercise regularly. Remember to challenge the brain after exercise to see even more benefits. It is also important to continue to socialize as you age.
