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.
