And not because of calories burned, or exercise intensity. It’s because of your FEET!
According to New Mexico Highlands University, each impact of the foot creates pressure waves in the arteries, boosting the blood supply, and optimizing brain function. Walking significantly boosts blood flow to the brain… and running does even more. But exercises like biking don’t have the same effect on the brain’s blood supply. So while all types of exercise are good for overall health, ones where your feet strike the ground may be best for your brain.
