Lithium is a trace mineral (alkali metal)  and  is like  sodium and potassium.  You may know that it mostly used for treating mental disorders such as:bipolar and manic- depressive disorder.

But there are more things  it can do for the body :

  1. Protects brains cells from toxicity
  2. promotes brain cells regeneration
  3. increases gray matter of the brain
  4. regulates brain neurotransmitters
  5. supports healthy mood balances
  6. improves blood sugar metabolism

It may help with these conditions :

  1. Autism
  2. Aggression
  3. Anxiety
  4. ADHD/ADD
  5.  Bipolar Disorder
  6. Brain Injury due to vaccines;Methymercury (thimerosal), toxins
  7. Cerebral Palsy
  8. Depression and Mood Disorder
  9. Childhood Epilepsy
  10. Alcoholism and Drug Recovery
  11. Liver disease;Hepatitis,Cirrhosis
  12. Herpes simplex viruses(HSV 1&2)
  13. Measles Virus
  14. Adenovirus (common cold)
  15. Epstein – Barr virus (mononucleosis)
  16. Neutropenia

It has  been found that low lithium causes  terrible things like neurosis,schizophrenia,burglary ,suicide and runaways ,etc.

Dosage:

  1. The typical dosage is 30 mg-800 mg of lithium orotate ;yet, the best way to start taking it is taking on tablet of 120(-5 mg of elemental) 1-3 times daily.
  2. Higher dosage is usually broken up into 3 dosages per day  and mostly for with bi-polar or manic disorders.
  3. However, with  bi-polar or manic-disorder  an increase to 2 tablets 3 times a day may prove to be more effective.
  4. Side note: in some cases up to 8 tablets broken  into 3 doses per day may be used until stable.
  5. For maintenance, typically 1 tablet twice a day ( i do this).

Which one to take for most benefits minus risks:

  1. Lithium orotate is the best  one to take , because it isn’t toxic  and is safe to take.
  2. Lithium carbonate is  dangerous due to the fact that it toxic and causes millions of problems in the body plus you would have to get your blood levels check often; be wary of the dosage.
