Walking for better aging: Positive effects on cognition and brain health

article written by

Walking, often seen as a basic physical activity, actually holds unexpected benefits, especially for aging. It's not just a way to keep fit, but a real elixir for our brain and cognitive health.

Walking to stimulate the brain

Regular walking positively impacts cognition. Studies show that walking for 30 minutes a day can significantly reduce the risk of cognitive decline and dementia in the elderly. According to research published in the "Journal of the American Medical Association, this activity improves memory, concentration, and creativity.
Inserm has established that, in people over 75, physical activity reduces the risk of falls and femoral neck fractures.

In addition to stimulating brain activity, walking also protects the brain against age-related diseases. Research suggests that physical exercise, particularly walking, increases blood flow to the brain, helping to prevent vascular brain diseases. Furthermore, regular walking helps reduce stress and anxiety levels, known factors that negatively affect brain health.

Walking, a pillar for healthy aging

In conclusion, walking is much more than an ordinary physical activity; it's a real ally for healthy and balanced aging. Incorporating walking into our daily routine is not only beneficial for our physical shape but also an investment in our long-term cognitive health. Walking is a step towards longevity, both for the body and the mind.

We encourage our users to integrate walking into their daily routine, not only for enjoyment but also for its beneficial effects on their brain health and overall well-being.
