A new scientific study, published in Journal of Neuroscience, he has found that high intensity exercise may be super also for make mental fitness and most importantly, a good solution to get rid of depression.
If you are passing through a stage of downturn seems that exercise (the hard, also) is that less fancy, but the latest research shows that it is the best way out of the dark side.
And is that sweat drop fat at the gym help increase the presence in our body of two key neurotransmitters to get feel better with yourself. They are glutamic acid and gamma-aminobutyric acid, whose main role is, in the first case be a wildcard for the exchange of power between tissues, and in the second, the reduction of neuronal excitability throughout the nervous system.
In this way, the exercise takes prominence When it comes to combat depression and other neuropsychiatric problems related to deficiency of these two neurotransmitters. The author of this study, Dr. Richard Maddock (Professor in the Department of Psychiatry and Sciences of the behavior of Davis Health System UC), says that “his study shows that exercise activates the metabolic circuit that restores these two neurotransmitters”.
Also shows which do high intensity exercise is one of the most demanding activities that faces our brain, which is much more demanding than solve an integral or play a game of chess, but no one knew what was happening with all that energy generated. According to Maddock “apparently, generate more neurotransmitters”.
To prove this assertion, the study counted with the participation of 38 volunteers that it did exercise bikes up to 85% of the maximum capacity of your heart. Researchers measured levels of glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid in different parts of their brain both before and after workouts. In addition, they also made measurements in a group of volunteers not practiced exercise. The result showed clearly that people who had had higher levels of glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid both in the visual cortex, which aims to process visual information, and in the cortex of the anterior Cingulate, which helps regulate the heart beat, but also has an important role in our cognitive and emotional functions.
So the next you feel depressed, be sad or need to cheer up a good solution (although the last thing you want to do in this world) is put on your slippers of sport and go out to sweat a little.
