How does exercise help Attention deficit-Hyper Activity Disorder (ADHD) symptoms?

Everyone knows that exercise is good for our bodies; it’s also good for the brain.Exercise can help with symptoms of ADHD as it elevates levels of dopamine and norepinephrine for an extended period of time. Exercise therefore actually acts like medication that is prescribed for ADHD. It also helps to less the need for impulsivity and the cravings for immediate gratification as it works towards waking up the main function of the frontal cortex, which will then allow for delay, better choices and more time to evaluate consequences.
