New research suggests it doesn’t take much exercise to make a dramatic improvement in mental sharpness. A group of 160 older, sedentary adults with cognitive decline (testing about 20-30 years older cognitively than their actual ages) were randomly assigned to one of 4 groups. One group did 45 minutes of moderately intense walking 3 times a week. The second was instructed in the DASH diet. The third group did both exercise and the DASH diet. The fourth only received general
health counseling. After 6 months, the participants in the exercise/diet group took 9 years off their cognitive age compared to those who did nothing.
