We want to stay young forever! We enjoy being vital, having a lot of energy, remembering a lot and having our body and brain working as we are 20 for many more than only the 12 months when we are actually 20.

It is well known that staying physically active is good not only for your muscles but also for your brain.

But now there is a new step in this direction and new studies suggest how exercise helps the brain.
