Memory Loss and Exercise

Sweat Yourself Smart New evidence says exercise can reduce dementia risk Here at Juvenon, we are fascinated by scientific research that delves into mitochondrial function (AKA your energy metabolism). To that end, we revisit and update our content as we discover exciting new evidence that links exercise with improved mitochondrial function. The proven benefits are many, from better energy and longevity to reduction of dementia risk. The Mighty Mitochondria Essentially metabolism is a collection of mitochondria. These are the spark plugs of the cells that are responsible for metabolism. The greater the activity of the cell, the more mitochondria it has. Regardless of their location, when these little dynamos aren’t operating cleanly and efficiently, it impedes your metabolism, resulting in energy slow down throughout your body.
