Increasing your muscle mass starting at an early age will reduce your risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease by 61%.
A report looked at the relationship between muscle mass and risk of developing Alzheimer’s.
The study consisted of 970 older adults followed over 3.6 years.
According to this study, those adults who ranked at the 90th percentile of muscle strength had a 61% reduced risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease compared to those in the 10th percentile. People who are stronger experience a slower rate of memory loss, cognitive decline and reduced risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
