The study that was led by the Hannah Gardener at the University of Miami in Florida of the Miller School of Medicine, it has been found that as we are not able to stop the aging process for protecting our cognitive functioning, past studies about it which have recommended that good and healthy lifestyle habits, like regular physical activity, would be helping.
Study Reveals ‘Healthy Heart Leads to Healthy Brain’
There are Life’s 7 Simple incorporates such as usual physical activity, weight management, a healthy diet, good controlling of the blood sugar, blood pressure as well as cholesterol and avoidance of tobacco. The team thus has found that participants of the study who had better cardiovascular health measures at baseline of the study and also they had improved speed of brain processing at that particular point of time, and this connection was strongest for adults and non-smokers with an ideal blood glucose levels and the ideal weight.
7 Rules To Follow To Avoid the Heart-Related Risks
- Physical Activity
- Weight Management
- Healthy Diet
- Good Controlling Of The Blood Sugar
- Control Over Blood Pressure
- Controlling The Cholesterol
- Avoidance Of Tobacco
Follow-Up of the Study
At follow-up study, the researchers have identified that participants who had much amount of health factors related to heart as well as blood vessel (cardiovascular) at baseline have experienced less reduction in the processing speed of the brain, memory as well as executive function that is related with time management, planning, organization and attention than those participants who have less amount of cardiovascular health factors.
Gardener commenting on these implications of the findings of the study said that getting the Life’s Simple 7 health metrics are links with the reduced risk heart attacks and of strokes even in the elderly people. And he too added that the finding that they would impact brain or cognitive function highlights the importance of monitoring, measuring and controlling of these 7 factors by physicians and the patients.
