A healthy lifestyle can beneficially impact the glial cell system


According to Sandkühler, neuroinflammatory diseases of the brain, environmental factors and even the person’s own lifestyle can lead to activation of glial cells.

Examples from the current literature are: depression, anxiety disorders and chronic stress, multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer’s and diabetes, as well as lack of exercise and poor diet. Sandkühler: “Glial cells are an important factor in ensuring the equilibrium of a person’s neuroinflammatory system.”

The study results give grounds for speculation that improvements in a person’s lifestyle could have a beneficial impact upon this system and ensure that they generally suffer less pain or “minor niggles”, says Sandkühler: “It is therefore in our own hands: thirty minutes of moderate exercise three or four times a week, a healthy diet and avoiding putting on excess weight can make a huge difference.”
