Can cycling prevent Alzheimer’s disease?

Cycling is a systemic activity.

When people get old, they will face the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, which will have a certain impact on people’s memory and cognitive ability.

How to prevent Alzheimer’s disease is an academic problem that is being discussed in clinical practice.

So, can regular cycling prevent Alzheimer’s disease? Research shows that middle-aged people who exercise twice a week have a 60% lower risk of Alzheimer’s disease than those who don’t like exercise, which proves that middle-aged people who keep exercising can help prevent Alzheimer’s disease.

In order to further understand the effect of physical exercise on the brain, the researchers examined the changes in brain metabolism and memory of 60 volunteers after routine exercise.

These participants were aged 65-85.

The results show that routine sports can not only enhance physical fitness, but also effectively promote the metabolic activities of the brain.

Among these sports, researchers found that walking and cycling had significant effects.
