You might have heard of lithium, but you may not know that everyone needs some in their diet. Though the precise reason isn't known at this time, it's believed that lithium is involved in the functions of a number of vitamins and enzymes, along with other chemical processes in the body.
Scientists speculate that lithium is similar to potassium and calcium, which is partly why it may have a positive impact of mental health. Lithium activates the functions that create serotonin and dopamine. Serotonin is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for things like your mood and appetite, while dopamine regulates your body's movement and emotions.
Lithium is a micronutrient, meaning your body doesn't need large amounts of it. However, research has shown that getting a small dose of lithium from a supplement like Pure Encapsulations’ Lithium Orotate 5 mg may help you lead a longer life. Research has suggested that low levels of lithium in your body can cause you to have problems with your metabolism and behavior.
Lithium may promote relaxation by decreasing brain activity, but it isn’t a substitute for any prescribed medications. In addition to the main ingredient, each vegetarian capsule also contains N-acetyl-l-cysteine, which protects the membranes of your brain cells with its powerful antioxidant properties. In addition, this supplement provides ascorbyl palmitate, which is a form of vitamin C that is easily absorbed by your body.
One 90-capsule bottle of Lithium Orotate 5 mg by Pure Encapsulations should last for about three months if taken at the standard recommended dosage of one capsule daily. Speak to your doctor before starting to use this supplement.

3.5 Stars based on 2 Review(s)

I like Pure Encapsulations because of the lack of synthetic junk in their products (magnesium stearate, etc.), but I was disappointed to find extra ingredients in the Lithium (ascorbyl palimitate(fat-soluble vita. c) and n-acetyl-l-cysteine). I'm assuming they have research based reasoning for adding these, but there is a possibility that they could be contraindicated in someone with a specific health condition. In any case, I just wanted lithium orotate. Guess I should have payed more attention to the label before I bought it... That being said, It had no effect on me after taking it for about 11/2 to 2 weeks. Very well may not have been long enough to tell.
It may be a great product, just know what you're buying.
Lack of synthetics
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Lithium is said to improve mood.

Pure Encapsulations Lithium has improved my mood and I especially like the fact it does not contain any bad chemicals such as magnesium stearates nor microcrystalline cellulose. I have problems swallowing capsules so I just dispense the lithium into water and drink it. Excellent product!! A+
Supplementing for low lithium level
I wish it was available in powder form so I wouldn't have to empty capsules into fluids to take it.
