Physical activity in childhood improve the performance of the brain

American Scientists have brought yet another argument in favor of physical education, especially at an early age. Physical exercise increases the activity of beneficial intestinal bacteria, which subsequently affects the brain.

According to the researchers of the University of Colorado, in the human digestive tract resides 100,000,000,000,000 bacteria that are known to be an important part of the functioning of the organism. Training early in life can positively change this microbial community, contributing to the health of the brain and metabolic activity during the whole life.

According to the researchers, to take up the best physical activity as early as possible because of intestinal microbes is particularly "malleable" in his younger years and the changes it easier to stimulate during this period.

Intestinal microbes play an important role in the development of immune and nervous system function, adding about 5 million to the total genes of human genetic profile and thus having great force effects on different aspects of the human physiology.

Scientists have conducted experiments on laboratory rats and found that young rodents are trained every day, have a beneficial microbial structure (for example, there was an increase of probiotic bacterial species) compared to their sedentary counterparts, and older individuals, including those that are also practiced.
