Feel good’ hormone could explain why exercise helps boost your brain
Dopamine, known as the “feel good” hormone, plays a crucial role in improving cognitive performance in response to exercise, as revealed by a study. This discovery suggests a potential therapeutic pathway for cognitive health and its relevance in conditions like Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, ADHD, addiction, and depression.
- A recent study conducted by the University of Portsmouth explores the mechanisms behind the improvement in cognitive performance due to exercise and identifies dopamine’s key role.
- Dopamine, a neurotransmitter and hormone associated with pleasure, satisfaction, and motivation, increases during exercise, and the study found that it is linked to faster reaction times.
- The research has significant implications for cognitive health, as dopamine is involved in various conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, schizophrenia, ADHD, addiction, and depression.
- The study used positron emission tomography (PET) to measure dopamine release in the brain during exercise, showing a correlation with improved reaction time.
- The findings support the growing evidence that exercise can be prescribed as a therapy for various health conditions across different age groups.
- The study involved three experiments with 52 male participants. Voluntary exercise was found to improve cognitive performance, while forced electrical muscle stimulation did not yield the same results.
- The research suggests that the exercise’s effectiveness in improving cognitive performance is linked to central signals in the brain, rather than just muscle movement.
- The study also examined the relationship between oxygen levels, cognitive performance, and exercise, finding that changes in brain-regulating hormones, including dopamine, play a significant role.
- The authors acknowledge the need for further research with larger sample sizes and diverse populations to fully understand the connection between dopamine release and cognitive performance following exercise.
- The study was a collaborative effort involving multiple institutions, including the University of Portsmouth, University of Chichester, University of Electro-Communications (Japan), and others.
- The findings were published in The Journal of Physiology, emphasizing the importance of continued research in this area for a better understanding of cognitive health and exercise.
FROM OUR GILAD SHOP
Introducing The 2023 Bodies in Motion Desktop Calendar, the perfect addition to your office or home. Immerse yourself in the beauty of stunning images from Bodies in Motion workouts while finding inspiration in our collection of motivational quotes. Stay motivated, stay active, and let the energy of Bodies in Motion guide you through each day of 2023.
L-Glutamine is produced in the body and is the most abundant protein in the blood and other bodily fluids. However, highly active individuals usually have higher Glutamine needs than their bodies can produce. Therefore, supplementing with it is essential for those wanting to perform better.
L-Glutamine supports lean muscle mass, cell growth, and growth hormone release in the body, which is essential for improved performance. It also boosts the immune system activity in the gut, helping to prevent infection.
Joint Support Gummies are a delicious way to get in the necessary level of glucosamine that your body needs to replenish cartilage and tendon tissues around the joints while also increasing the fluid around joints to prevent their breakdown.
As the body ages, joints start to ache because of the breakdown of cartilage around the joint. For some, this creates severe discomfort. Cartilage breakdown is more apparent in athletes who push their bodies to the limit.
Ginkgo Biloba is a plant originating in Asia that was used in ancient Chinese medicine. Usually, the herb’s leaves are used, but the seeds are shown to have the highest efficacy. Ginkgo contains numerous flavonoids and terpenoids, which promote blood flow in the body and brain.
Together with Gingko, Ginseng plays a vital role in boosting the body’s immune system – helping combat cold and flu symptoms. Ginseng also provides energy to the body through compounds known as ginsenosides.
Collagen Gummies are for those looking for healthy sweet snacks. These are the perfect replacement for traditional sugar gummies on the market since they provide your body with vital protein and collagen while also boosting your immune system with Vitamin C.
This is a powerful combination because Vitamin C aids collagen absorption into the bones. This greatly improves bone and joint strength and stability.
