Weekly Health Tips

Protect Your Brain

Posted: 07.8.2015

Maintaining a normal weight is good for the health of your body, and new study suggests that it is also good for your brain.  The study of 6,400 adults ages 39 to 63 revealed a link between being overweight or obese and cognitive impairment.  The greater the body mass index (BMI), the higher the risk of impaired cognitive function.  Overweight participants who also had metabolic conditions such as diabetes, high blood pressure or high cholesterol also showed a faster rate of decline over time.  A healthy diet and regular physical exercise can help in achieving a healthy weight.
