    The Simple Reason Exercise Enhances Your Brain

    Evidence keeps mounting that exercise is good for the brain. It can lower a person's risk for Alzheimer's disease and may even slow brain aging by about 10 years. Now, new research helps illuminate how, exactly, working out improves brain health.

    In one research review published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine, researchers examined 39 studies that looked at the link between exercise and cognitive abilities among people over age 50. They found that aerobic exercise appears to improve a person’s cognitive function and resistance training can enhance a person’s executive function and memory. Other exercises like tai chi were also linked to improvements in cognition, though there wasn’t as much available evidence. Ultimately, the researchers concluded that 45 minutes to an hour of moderate-to-vigorous exercise was good for the brain.

    “There is now a wide body of research showing that the benefits to the body with exercise also exist for the brain,” says study author Joe Northey, a PhD candidate at the University of Canberra Research Institute for Sport and Exercise in Australia. “When older adults undertake aerobic or resistance exercise, we see changes to the structure and function of areas of the brain responsible for complex mental tasks and memory function.”

    But how does exercise have these effects? Another new study presented at the American Physiological Society’s annual meeting in Chicago explored one possible way. In the study, researchers from New Mexico Highlands University found that when people walk, the pressure of making impact with the ground sends waves through the arteries, which increase blood flow to the brain (also called cerebral blood flow). Getting enough blood to the brain is important for healthy brain function, since blood flow brings the brain oxygen and nutrients.

    In the small study—which has not yet been published—researchers used ultrasounds to assess arteries and changes in cerebral blood flow in 12 healthy young adults while they were standing, walking and running. The increases in blood flow were greater when the men and women ran, but walking was enough to spur the effect. “[Increased cerebral blood flow] gives the brain more to work with,” says study author Ernest R. Greene, a professor of engineering and biology at New Mexico Highlands University. “It’s another positive aspect of exercise.”

    Scientists are still exploring multiple ways by which fitness improves the brain. But blood flow is a promising path, since it can also help create new brain cells. The protein BDNF (brain-derived neurotrophic factor) also seems to play a role because it helps repair and protect brain cells from degeneration. Exercise can also boost mood by triggering the release of feel-good hormones and chemicals, like endorphins, which can improve brain health. A 2015 study found that exercise may be able to prevent the onset of depressive symptoms. 

    “Each type of exercise seems to have different effects on the growth factors responsible for the growth of new neurons and blood vessels in the brain,” says Northey. “That may indicate why doing both aerobic and resistance training is of benefit to cognitive function.”

    A Customer's experience with Aniracetam

    What I notice about aniracetam is that it is subtlety profound in effectiveness.  I feel like it works with the body in turning anxious energy into productive energy.  It is beneficial because for me it has stimulatory along with anti-anxiety effects.  I notice it helps with creativity and focus. 

    My communication with others is better and I am able to verbally articulate what I am trying to convey as well as understand and retain what others are telling me more comprehensively.  If I have a busy day with a stressful schedule, I find that aniracetam takes that stress and turns it into productive concentration with a positive mood and a good outlook.  

    12 Ways to Age-Proof Your Brain


    Evidence is accumulating that a whole host of activities can help keep our brains young even as we advance in chronological age. There is no one magic activity that you need to take on, but trying a handful of the following will help.

    A Customer's experience with Noopept

    I decided to try Noopept because we were painting several rooms in our house and I have a difficult time focusing on task that don't interest me.  I feel like I should be doing something more important than what I am doing at the moment, or while I am doing a task I begin to think about what I need to do next instead of what I actually am doing.  

    I took noopept, put on music, and started to work.  The first thing I noticed was enhanced mood and as I worked I found myself enjoying the music.  I felt a calm clarity of mind, but there was also a very noticeable aspect of good clean energy.  Although I had heard the music I was listening to many times, I heard intricacies I never noticed before.  

    In a way I feel like noopept levels the playing field.  Those wasted moments thinking about the next thing to do, or worrying about something in the future.  I now feel like I will be able to be in the moment and focused. 


    A Customer's experience with Phenylpiracetam

    Phenylpiractetam provides a significant uplift in mood for me. I was not expecting that because initially I took it for focus and concentration, which it does also.  Personally I have found 100 mg in the morning works best for energy, focus, and mood.  

    When I am in large areas with a lot going on and a bunch of movement such as a place like Walmart, I feel myself taking in everything that is going on more comprehensively, and my attention to details becomes much sharper.

    I really don't know what to compare it to because it is unlike anything I have tried in the past.   I guess perhaps the best way to explain it is that I can focus on a task, but it does not induce tunnel vision. I notice myself still thinking outside the box in a creative way.
