Another good reason to exercise:
New information on the brain mechanism that may contribute to panic attacks, suggesting there may be a hypersensitivity to levels of acidity in the brain.
Studies have shown that people with panic disorder accumulate excess lactate in their brains during ordinary mental activities. This study by John Wemmie at the University of Iowa, suggests that one of the triggers for “spontaneous” panic attacks in people with panic could be the build up of lactic acid.
They further point out that one of the numerous benefits of aerobic exercise is that it helps the brain remove excessive lactic acid.
