There is an old joke that the first thing you lose as you get older is your memory. That might in fact be true, but a new study says there are ways to combat that memory loss with one simple step: exercise!

The University of California-Irvine ran a series of tests on 50 adults from age 50 to 85, correlating exercise and memory, and came up with some pretty surprising results. The groups who exercised has significantly better recall than those who didn’t. They discovered that even a short session of exercise helped with cognitive recall and memory.

There is a lesson to be learned for the senio citizens, keep active and exercise regualrly to help keep your memory intact.
