We engage in actions and activities that require sitting while we are using our brains in many areas of life, such as working at a desk at work, taking an exam, focusing on a puzzle, etc. A recent article has revealed that sitting for long periods may have an impact on the brain and have negative effects on brain health.
The brain uses high amounts of glucose. It often demands approximately 20% of our energy needs, which are often in the form of glucose in order for us to rest. If that energy supply is disrupted, brain cells may decline, and can even be damaged. Therefore, the presence of glucose in brain cells is essential for a healthy brain.
