Taking (Grey) Matter Into Your Own Hands – With Lithium Orotate
Many people do not realize that lithium itself is not a drug, but is instead a naturally occurring mineral salt like potassium, and is something that everyone needs for proper mental and physical health.
The familiar kinds of lithium known to the general population are the pharmaceutical drug forms of lithium, like lithium carbonate and lithium citrate. These medication drugs are typically prescribed for treatment of mood disorders like bipolar disorder.
Can Lithium Help Solve Your Mental Health Mysteries?
Lithium orotate is something very different. It is a special mineral form of lithium, which will cross the blood brain barrier. This means that the huge amounts required of the pharmaceutical drug forms of lithium citrate and lithium carbonate in order to effectively treat a condition, are not necessary when using lithium orotate. Instead, only a tiny amount of lithium orotate supplement is needed, as 97% of it gets where it actually needs to go.
One of the main reasons people use lithium orotate, instead of the pharmaceutical forms of lithium carbonate or lithium citrate, is because of their potential for lithium toxicity and because of their numerous side effects. The large quantities of those drugs, which must be used in order to be effective, are at near toxic levels with a narrow window of safety. The hope is that they will do more good than harm.
Lithium orotate, on the other hand, is completely non-toxic, very safe in all respects, has no side effects, and is effective for an estimated 70% to 80% of individuals who try it.
A Younger, Healthier Brain With Just One Small Dose A Day
Because of the small amounts of lithium in lithium orotate, which still effectively treats many different conditions such as bipolar disorder, it is available as an over-the-counter mineral supplement.
In addition, lithium orotate is a mineral, which can be helpful for anyone to take. It protects the brain in a number of important ways. It has also been recently discovered that the mineral lithium can actually restore and increase the gray matter in the brain (source of intelligence), which nothing else known to date can do.
In addition, taking small amounts of lithium orotate provides natural anti-aging benefits to the brain, as well as protecting the brain from numerous toxins, and more.

In a study, Nematode worms treated with lithium show a 46 percent increase in lifespan, raising the tantalizing question of whether humans taking the mood affecting drug are also taking an anti-aging medication.
A number of interesting studies on lithium have turned up in recent years, such as its possible association with longevity in humans.
Here researchers are testing it against Parkinson’s disease: “A two-year study of the effects of lithium treatment on Parkinson’s disease in mice has given researchers at the Buck Institute for Research on Aging hope that the drug may halt brain damage in humans with the degenerative disorder.
The research found that lithium, the Food and Drug Administration-approved drug most commonly used to treat bipolar disorder, “profoundly prevents the aggregation of toxic proteins and cell loss associated with Parkinson’s disease” in mice.
In the last couple of years, there’s been kind of a growing body of data that suggests that lithium orotate could have some neuroprotective effects.
