Babies : Excercise has a powerful impact on brain development and on how babies develop …. science indicates that babies whose mothers exercised regularly during the pregnancy are well regulated – have higher IQ and enhanced oral language capabilities

BDNF Excercise helps with release of BDNF – which helps with cell growth in the brain Studies indicate with regular excercise there is an increase in brain cells or brain volume .
