In this video, we’re going to talk about the best exercise for the brain. 

The best exercise for the brain is going to be the one that provides the most oxygen. 

There are two types of exercise:

Aerobic exercise: With oxygen 

Anaerobic exercise: Without oxygen (you will still get oxygen, just less) 

Aerobic activities:

• Sports
• Running 
• Biking 
• Swimming 
• Walking

The above types of exercise will provide the most oxygen and blood flow to your brain. When doing high intensity interval training (HIT), it really depends on the volume that you do. With anaerobic exercise like doing high intensity interval training, you’re stimulating growth hormone much more than you would with some aerobic exercise. Anaerobic exercise has its own benefits, but when talking about getting oxygen and blood flow to the brain, aerobic exercise may be best. 

Research indicates that aerobic exercise may help:

• Improve memory 
• Grow new brain cells
• Get rid of waste in the brain
• Increase mood
• Decrease stress
• Enhance sleep 
• Improve spatial memory 
• Burn off excess sugar 

By adding exercise to the healthy keto plan with intermittent fasting, you can really take things to the next level. 

There are other things you can do to take it one step even further:

• Adding MCT oil about 1 hour before you work out 
• Adding exogenous ketones
