Exercise Builds Brain Cells

Posted Sep 14 2008 4:51pm

While we are all aware of the physical benefits of exercise, more and more research is showing that it has benefits beyond buffness. The cover story for the March 26th issue of Newsweek, Stronger, Faster, Smarter" talks about how science is now finding that regular exercise releases biochemicals that promote cell growth and neural connections. This is even true for areas of the brain where cells have died -- people put on regular, rigorous exercise routines actually grew new cells.

Yet another reason to get up off the couch!
