Research shows that exercise changes the brain by triggering growth factors that are kind of like fertiliser for brain cells to enhance connections between them – one of them one called Brain Derived Neurotrophic Factor (BDNF), another is glial derived neurotrophic factor which supports the infrastructure of the brain cells and that enhances health.

Exercise also reduces our risk of Parkinson’s and dementia, among other diseases and affects cognitive health. Exercise (defined as vigorous exercise, or walking at least 3 kilometres a day, or biking 16 kilometres a day)… was the most powerful contributor to decreased risk of disease.
