Exercise can help dementia patients improve thinking abilities
London: A new study has found that exercising can actually help people suffering from dementia boost their cognitive skills.
For research purposes, Cochrane Collaboration conducted a methodical review of 8 exercise trials involving over 300 dementia patients, the BBC reported.
The findings showed that although physical activity failed to lift patients' moods, it did help them carry out daily activities like rising from a chair.
Dr. Laura Phipps of Alzheimer 's Research UK said that though she can't assure that exercise will prevent dementia, evidence does suggest that it can help reduce the risk of the condition as part of a healthy lifestyle.
