It is my purpose to teach and empower all who want to master their lives and have total freedom. Starting with the brain working through freedom of movement to financial freedom.
I am thrilled to tell you I found a ton of research on all of the above freedoms I listed, working in synergy with each other.
The one that really jumped out is the one with research in “neurogenesis”, the ability for certain areas of the brain to grow new brain cells, I will share with you today on how endurance exercise makes the brain grow! Research discovered that we can foster new brain cell growth through exercise.
It reads as follows:
The hippocampus, a brain area closely linked to learning and memory, is especially receptive to new neuron growth in response to endurance exercise. Exactly how and why this happens wasn’t well understood until recently. Research has discovered that exercise stimulates the production of a protein called FNDC5 that is released into the bloodstream while we’re breaking a sweat. Over time, FNDC5 stimulates the production of another protein in the brain called Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), which in turns stimulates the growth of new nerves and synapses – the connection points between nerves – and also preserves the survival of existing brain cells.
What this boils down to in practice is that regular endurance exercise, like jogging, strengthens and grows your brain. In particular, your memory and ability to learn get a boost from hitting the pavement. Along with the other well-established benefits of endurance exercise, such as improved heart health, this is a pretty good reason to get moving. If jogging isn’t your thing, there’s a multitude of other ways to trigger the endurance effect – even brisk walking on a regular basis yields brain benefits.
