It’s exciting to know that some of the same actions that can keep our brain functioning as we age can also reduce the debilitating impact of Alzheimer’s.

We now know that to maintain good physical health, it’s important to exert physical effort to expand the flow of oxygen-rich blood to the muscle’s cells in our body. Healthy brain cells also need a good supply of blood, which carries essential nutrients and oxygen, to help them remain healthy and functioning. Ad...
