  1. Studies in mice have shown that running increases the body's levels of the protein “cathepsin B”, which promotes the growth of brain cells and improves memory.

    Protein is produced by the muscles during exercise and transported to the brain.

    While running, blood supply increases, oxygen flow improves, which helps optimize activity in the hippocampus-the structure of the brain where new neurons and new neural connections are formed.

    It has also been experimentally proven that in addition to neurogenesis, running has a beneficial effect on angiogenesis – the process of the appearance of new blood vessels that feed brain cells.

  2. Running is the norm for humans.�

    That is, in fact, a person is born to run. This is proved by a number of physiological adaptations in the body. There are many versions of why this is so: either he had to move long distances, or run a lot or catch up-most likely, all at once. If you look at the biomechanics of the leg itself, it becomes clear that it is adapted specifically to measured and long-distance running.

    Running is a normal pace of life for a person, and the pace is a rhythm, speed. All our processes in the brain are rhythmic, they flow like music under the influence of a certain measured rhythm: three-step, four-step, and so on. And it doesn't matter if they are background processes or active ones.�

    we think most and best when we're running, but at a slow paceTherefore. Apparently, when running evolutionarily, we need to think about where to run and how to escape. �

    In this plane, memory and running are inextricably linked, and one contributes to the other. There are studies that prove that during and after running, growth factors are produced that cause the formation of new neural connections and the formation of synapses. So, if we are going to study something, we should first move and run. Thanks to this, insights can occur, new information is better absorbed, the amount of RAM increases, and the hippocampus develops.

    We are not aware of how to move our feet, but simply run. Therefore, those parts of the brain that are responsible for creative thinking, for logic, they are to some extent not distracted. Roughly speaking, they have time to think. You probably noticed that on the move, both poems are composed and interesting thoughts appear.

    Running is addictive.Dopamine, one of the happiness hormones, is released during exercise. This is happiness from physical activity and happiness from knowledge. This is where the contradiction between intellectuals and athletes begins. If a person starts running regularly and a lot, and even more so, to swing, it reduces the interest and motivation to engage in intellectual activities, and vice versa. We need to find a balance. It consists of regular physical activity of no more than 80% of the maximum permissible norm, strictly before engaging in intellectual activities, because then one multiplies the other. This results in a delayed action of running during mental activity. In other words, we ran around a bit and then did some intellectual work.

  3. Truth. During running, blood circulates more actively through the blood vessels. And due to this, not only are cells better supplied with oxygen, but also slags and toxins are washed out more intensively. And running (especially long, slow running) is a cyclical sport that develops psychological endurance. This is a kind of meditation. There are several articles about running on my website.
