A study has shown that regular physical activity regulates the metabolism and absorption of iron in the body and brain. This study will also help find ways to understand the benefits of exercise in people suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.

The latest study, published in the International Journal of Molecular Journal, was conducted by scientists at the University of Eastern Finland. It was observed during the study that if the absorption of iron in brain is disrupted it causes rapid aging and can lead disease like Alzheimer.

Not only does exercise reduce internal irritation and inflammation. However, it needs further study to under the link between iron and Alzheimer. A study was conducted on healthy rats and rats suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. Sick rats were made to exercise and iron absorption was observed in them. The other group of rats were given a six-month running wheel. The research lasted for six months, after which iron levels in the brain, bones and body muscles were measured.

Scientists found the amount of iron and iron-related proteins in mice. At the same time, an attempt was made to find out the effects of brain and nerve connections and self-exercise.

The study found that physical activity and exercise regularly supplied iron to the blood, brain and body. If the brain is deficient in iron, it has negative effects. This important discovery will help us understand a painful disease like Alzheimer’s and pave the way for new treatments.
