Exercise Can Help Protect You From Depression


Most people already know that physical activity does the body and the mind good.

A recent study at the Karolinska Institutet in Sweden has confirmed that exercise can help the brain deal with and avoid depression that stems from stress.

In an experiment performed on mice, it was confirmed that exercise creates changes in the skeletal muscles that get right of the substances in the blood that accumulate because of stress. These substances are harmful to the brain and can be minimized with regular workouts. According to the researchers, depression is still a very shady concept that cannot be properly defined and explained by medicine.

However, this research has given them another piece of the puzzle towards understand depression better, especially when it comes to the biochemical changes that can be initiated in the body to protect the brain from harmful substances that result from stress and increase the chances of depression.
