Tai Chi Improves Brain Metabolism and Muscle Energetics in Older Adults

http://www.americantaichi.net/TaiChiKungLivingArticle.asp?cID=3&sID=3&article=chi_201804_2&subject=Seniors Tai Chi is a mind-body exercise that has been shown to improve both mental and physical health. However, the underlying physiological changes have not been characterized. A new pilot study carried out by researchers from Harvard Medical School and several Chinese institutes assessed the changes in brain metabolites and muscle energetics after Tai Chi training in an aging population using a combined brain-muscle magnetic resonance spectroscopy (MRS) examination. Six healthy older adults were prospectively recruited and enrolled into a 12-week Tai Chi program. A brain MRS and a muscle MRS

Antioxidant Effect of Tai Chi in Older Adults with Metabolic Syndrome

http://www.americantaichi.net/TaiChiQigongForHealthArticle.asp?cID=2&sID=60&article=chi_201804_4&subject=Other%20Health%20Topics The antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of Tai Chi (TC) exercise training in healthy older adults has been demonstrated. However, there are no studies on this effect in older adults with metabolic syndrome (MetS), which is a cluster of conditions - increased blood pressure, high blood sugar, excess body fat around the waist, and abnormal cholesterol or triglyceride levels - that occur together and increase the risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. A new Mexican study published by Clinical interventions in aging in April of 2018 aimed to determine the ef

The Effect of Tai Chi on Bone Mineral Density and Prevention of Osteoporosis

http://www.americantaichi.net/TaiChiQigongForHealthArticle.asp?cID=2&sID=60&article=chi_201804_3&subject=Other%20Health%20Topics Tai Chi is suggested to have beneficial effects on the musculoskeletal system. The Chinese University of Hong Kong performed a systematic review is to evaluate the evidence of the effect of TCC on bone mineral density (BMD) and its potential for prevention of osteoporosis. A literature search was conducted using PubMed, Embase, and Cochrane databases from inception to January 2017. Randomized controlled studies, case-control trials, prospective cohort studies, and cross-sectional studies which evaluated the effect of Tai Chi on BMD were selected without any subject
