How Exercise Increases Intellect

The brain is similar to our muscles and organs because its performance and functionality decline rapidly if not used. However, studies show that exercise will reduce this rate of decline, and even develop new brain cells, also called neurons, which have a short shelf life if not used. These newly generated brain cells are floating around waiting to network with other brain cells, and learning is the key that allows them to network with one another. To put it simply: Exercise + Learning = Improved Intellect.  Learn More > #exercise #learning #intellect
