Aging and obesity related cognitive decline restored by hyperbaric oxygen therapy

The combination of aging and obesity play major factors in the accelerated aging and degeneration of the brain. Commonly seen symptoms are characterized by problems with memory, language, thinking or judgment.

In this study, a simple 2 week course of hyperbaric oxygen therapy was shown to be effective in restoring cognitive function. The protocol used was 2.0 ATA, 80 minutes daily, for 14 days. The researchers noted that “HBOT restored insulin sensitivity, hippocampal functions, cognition in aging and aging-obese models” in this study done on rats <view study>
