We know that smoking and obesity are harmful to our health- but a new study published in the Neurology journal showed that these unhealthy lifestyle risk factors as well as other health conditions such as high blood pressure and diabetes may accelerate the aging process and diminish brain functioning.
The study focused on the relationship between cardiovascular health and brain health, and how factors that negatively impact one can compromise health of the other. Identifying these potential health risks early and taking action to prevent and treat them can help avoid complications such as Alzheimer’s Disease later in life.
Blood flow to the brain is less efficient when the heart is not in top condition, but heart health can be improved greatly by lifestyle modifications, especially quitting smoking, losing weight, lowering cholesterol, doing regular cardiovascular exercise and managing stress by incorporating relaxation techniques into your daily routine.
