Who doesn’t want to get smarter? Who wants to stop aging? Who wants to move like 20 years ago? Every day you wake up, you can either "use it or lose it." Your brainpower, that is. Cognitive abilities such as concentration, attention, memory, hearing and motor coordination, and executive functions like planning and multitasking deteriorate over the time unless used regularly.. Did you know that the latest research is showing that walking is not enough and also that if you stay isolated watching TV or reading a book it will kill brain cells as well? The best option is to move in a specific way and be surrounded with phenomenal friends! But also many more.

Hi Florentina and thanks for posting this question! Yes Bipolar disorder is a serious condition and the way you decide to live a healthy lifestyle it is crucial. Here is a friend of mine who wrote this blog about my program and bipolar disorder http://superbipolarbrainandbody.blogspot.com/

Here is an interview with the Psychiatrist who is an expert in Bipolar disorder GREGORY LOMBARDO, MD Dr Lombardo is board certified in adult, child and adolescent psychiatry and is a diplomate of the American Society of Clinical Psychopharmacology. He is the author of "Understanding the mind of your bipolar child"According to Dr Lombardo,

The benefits of implementing physical exercise especially Michael's program Super Body, Super Brain may fall into three major groups:

3.1Motor Skills: Motor skills refers to the abilities which involve the use of hands, develop over time, starting with primitive gestures such as grabbing at objects to more precise activities that involve precise hand-eye coordination. Fine motor skills are skills that involve a refined use of the small muscles controlling the hand, fingers, and thumb. The development of these skills allows one to be able to complete tasks such as writing, drawing, and buttoning. SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN incorporates an active use of motor skills. The importance of exercising balance and coordination may help improve children's brain functioning in the following areas: attention, memory, multitasking, spatial memory and decision-making. For example raising heels and arms at the same time will improve kids’ attention and multitasking skills. This could correlate to listening to the teacher and writing in a piece of paper)

3.2 Psychiatric Benefits and Benefits in Academic FunctionImproving children’s brain functioning through specific exercise movements.Regarding brain functioning, it is important to refer to the cerebellum, the area of the brain responsible for voluntary physical movement is connected by neurons to all parts of the cortex, the area of the brain responsible for higher order thinking.  Nearly 80 studies have suggested a strong link between the movement and memory, spatial perception, language, attention, emotion, nonverbal cues, and decision-making (Jensen, 1998).A number of studies also indicate that children suffering from even subtle forms of Bipolar Disorder have difficulties integrating the cognitive function of the left with the right hemisphere. This is also thought to be true for children with dyslexia and dysgraphia, conditions that powerfully affect a child’s scholastic function and their self-esteem.An essential feature of SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN is to improve the integration of motor activity carried on between the left and right hemisphere. This cannot help but improve problems with visual integration and with fine motor coordination and sensory-motor coordination, yielding improvement is some children’s reading and writing (both in the sense of handwriting and in the sense of composition).

3.3 Cardiovascular BenefitsCardiovascular benefits seen with any regular aerobic exercise are particularly important in school age children.Among children Type II Diabetes caused by decreased physical activity and poor nutrition leading to obesity has reached epidemic proportions. When a child experiences improper weight gain (because of larger amounts of circulating growth hormone) the child increases the number of fat cells rather than their size (as is the case with adults). Consequently, hyper-cellular obesity is especially hard to reverse later on in life. SUPER BODY, SUPER BRAIN improves cardiovascular function and glucose metabolism while a child is focused on another goal, removing the burden of shame that can accompany explicit attempts at weight management  

I hope my response was helpful and stay active through daily exercise and healthy nutrition

What Causes the Brain to Age? This common event is the accumulated damage to vital cellular components by free radicals.
Numerous studies have found that those with neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease have chronic nutrient deficiencies. Most individuals with Alzheimer’s disease have low levels of vitamin C, beta-carotene, B1, B6, folate and vitamin B12. The latter three are particularly important, since they regulate a special series of metabolic steps in brain cells necessary for forming neurotransmitter chemicals and repairing DNA.
Vitamin E, C, the carotenoids and special antioxidants from plants called flavonoids all act together to protect the brain from free radicals and, hence, excitotoxicity. studies have shown that increasing these antioxidants in the diet slows the course of Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease and may prevent the disease in some.
Dr. Hugh Fudenberg, had conducted studies showing that those who receive the flu vaccine yearly for three to
five years increase their risk of Alzheimer’s disease tenfold. He attributes this to the mercury that was used in flu vaccines. Mercury poisons many of the critical brain enzymes, even in very low concentrations.
When vaccines are given close together and in significant numbers, the way many doctors give them, the brain’s immune system is overstimulated, resulting in destruction of the very brain cells we see destroyed in Alzheimer’s disease.
Numerous studies have shown that chronic activation of the brain’s immune system is closely connected to this disorder.
Several studies have shown that aged-related immune problems can be corrected with nutrients such as selenium, vitamins E and C, and the carotenoids. Of even greater importance is the finding that vitamin D3 plays a major role in preventing overreaction of the immune system, as seen in these diseases.
Ronald Reagan had a habit of eating jellybeans throughout the day. Knowing that high levels of sugar in the diet are harmful to the brain, I always wondered if this at least contributed to his developing Alzheimer’s disease.
Evidence makes an even stronger link. In one study of 980 elderly individuals followed for four
years, it was found that those with the highest intake of calories had a 50 percent increased incidence of dementia.
