Excess weight, weight loss and brain age

A recent clinical study (link to the study) explored the influence of weight loss following a lifestyle intervention on brain ageing in people living with obesity. Researchers uncovered intriguing findings using brain imaging and other health assessment techniques.

โ€ข A reduction in body weight and waist circumference was associated with a younger-looking brain.

โ€ข A healthier liver, suggested by improved markers and reduced liver fat, was also linked to a younger brain.

โ€ข Consuming fewer processed foods, sweets, and beverages seemed to contribute to younger brain age.

Adopting a healthier lifestyle, which leads to weight loss and better liver health, might slow brain ageing. As we age, this has potential implications for our cognitive health and overall well-being.

These promising findings come from a study focused on individuals living with obesity. It raises the question: Would similar changes be observed in other population groups? Brain health is complex, and weight loss and lifestyle adjustments are part of the story. Further research will help us better understand the whole picture.
