Sergio Cortes Alzheimer’s Research

Researchers at the Rio Claro UNESP and UFSCar of San Carlos reported that only three weekly exercise can delay and prevent Alzheimer’s, even if you have a genetic predisposition. According to Dr. Sergio Cortes, the research study reveals since Alzheimer’s disease is increasing more and more between individuals and one of the main challenges to combat. The study lasted four years and researchers belonging to the Federal University of São Carlos, UFSCar and the Universidade Estadual Paulista, UNESP, Rio Claro.

The results show that even a person with a genetic disposition to contract Alzheimer’s disease it can be combated with simple exercises, done weekly and moderately confirms Sergio Cortes. Thus, its effect will be a good stimulus to work the brain bringing body and benefit mainly mental. It is very important to practice as much as prevents delays its onset. The study by researchers took into account primarily genetic factors likely to increase the risk of neurodegenerative. Second, it quotes Sergio Cortes, were considered existing substances in amyloid plaques, which inflame and damage the neural connections. These two points have shown the surprising result of that exercise can combat the existence of the disease by interfering positively to the neural process is satisfactory and anti-inflammatory. These substances in those plates cause inflammation which consequently cause the cells to be systemic, meaning the entire body, will gradually die. According to experts, reports the doctor Sergio Cortes, what needs to be done is to prevent such inflammations that amyloid plaque deposits remain present causing a progressive loss of memory and stability of neurons.

What was confirmed in the study, how to prevent the spread the disease is the constant physical activity weekly or daily, reports Sergio Cortes. By doing so, the brain will receive natural stimulus where exercise acts as a brake on the degenerative process in mind and as an anti-inflammatory against the emergence of the substance. That’s why when practicing some exercise, the neural connection starts to work well, with positive stimuli by blocking the action of Alzheimer disease. According to the researcher Carla Nascimento and other scholars, quotes Sergio Cortes, it was found in this study that these inflammation is greatly reduced, improving the cognitive components and their functions. The most significant cognitive functions among the elderly by engaging in moderate physical activity three times a week were improving concentration, memory, sequential execution to perform everyday activities, planning and attention. The conclusion of the survey also depicts that physical exercise should start at a young age so that aging is healthy, much better and that you avoid problems in old age not only the onset of Alzheimer disease, but others too, concludes Sergio Cortes.
