Four Weeks for a Healthier Brain: Resistance Training Can Prevent or Delay Alzheimer’s Disease

Brain Enhancement Healing Concept

One study has found that regular endurance exercise can prevent or delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease symptoms. In experiments with transgenic mice, it was found that resistance training decreased the formation of beta-amyloid plaques and normalized levels of corticosterone, the stress hormone associated with Alzheimer’s. Researchers believe that the anti-inflammatory effect of resistance training … Read more

Resistance Training: A Valuable Ally Against Alzheimer’s Disease – Neuroscience News

It shows an older man lifting weights.

Summary: Regular physical exercise, especially resistance training, can delay the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. Using a mouse model, the team showed reductions in Alzheimer’s indicators, such as beta-amyloid plaques, and normalized stress hormone levels, after resistance training training. Resistance training not only offers physical benefits, it also appears to reduce Alzheimer’s-related behavioral problems. This study … Read more

Lecanemab Alzheimer’s Treatment Set for FDA Approval – Neuroscience News

It shows neurons.

Summary: Doctors are preparing to administer lecanemab, a promising new Alzheimer’s disease treatment nearing FDA approval. This therapy, marketed as Leqembi, slows cognitive decline by extracting the amyloid protein from the brain, thereby reducing the accumulation of tau protein. Treatment, especially for patients with mild cognitive impairment or mild dementia in Alzheimer’s disease, involves a … Read more

Alzheimer’s Breakthrough: New Blood Biomarkers Discovered

Exploding Brain Dementia Concept

The development of Alzheimer’s disease appears to be heavily influenced by star-shaped brain cells called astrocytes, according to research conducted by the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. While amyloid aggregates were previously seen as a major cause of Alzheimer’s, this new study suggests that it is the combination of amyloid load and abnormal astrocyte … Read more
