We all know that exercise is important in maintaining a happy and healthy lifestyle. Exercise has been found to boost your overall mood, stamina, and health and has now been found to boost your brain power. 

A new study from the University of South Carolina has found that 30 minutes for adults and 20 minutes for children results in a 5 percent to 10 percent improvement in cognition. A 30 minute treadmill session has the ability to increase brain function, causing it to function both faster and more efficiently. The findings do not measure an individuals IQ or level of intelligence, rather the increased rate of functionality in the frontal lobe. 


The study used brain monitors and treadmills to measure cognition before and after exercise. The study found that frontal lobe functionality improved after exercise.

Did you know that exercise and brain function were connected? Will you start to exercise to increase brain power?
