Traditionally, Lithium is the most common element used for stabilizing mood swings, mania and depression, alcoholism, ADHD and ADD, aggression, PTSD, Alzheimer's and to improve memory. Lithium orotate (LiO) has been marketed as an alternative to lithium carbonate.
Lithium orotate (the lithium salt of orotic acid) is 20 times more bio-active than other lithium salts, allowing a reduction in dosage greatly reducing the likelihood and severity of potential side effects.
Orotate is an organic "carrier" that transports the natural Lithium exactly where it needs to be delivered so that it reaches the blood cells of our brain. This is where chemical imbalances occur. When organic Lithium is combined with Orotate, it is reported to be many times more effective than the chemical, inorganic Lithium, to be safe and have minimal side effects.1
Lithium orotate has also been demonstrated to be useful in curbing alcoholism, as well as alleviating alcohol-related symptoms of liver dysfunction, seizure disorders, headaches, hyperthyroidism, affective disorders. 2
