Studies in recent decades have shown that exercising is good for the brain and cognitive performance. This generated institutions linked to health to recommend the physical activity everyday to help memory, perception, and thinking skills.
However, a general review of said investigations was carried out and it was determined that there is not enough evidence to prove the relationship between regular gymnastics and better cognition in people.
There is no solid evidence that exercise benefits the mind and memory.
Experts from the University of Granada analyzed 109 studies involving 11,000 healthy participants. The investigation showed that while exercise is good for the brain, strong evidence to support benefits around the mind and memory is lacking.
The researchers determined that the cognitive benefit after exercise disappeared due to certain moderators. The same were the different types of exercises, the age range, among others. The results show that the cognitive improvement is small, especially in the presence of moderators. The documents seek a reflection on this perspective of health.
