Lithium Orotate by Ortho Molecular Products – Item #1282
Lithium Orotate consists of lithium, an alkali metal, and orotic acid, a compound produced naturally in the body. This mineral is similar to sodium and iodine. Though its exact mechanism of action in the brain is still unidentified, research has shown that lithium can boost neurotransmitter activity, including that of dopamine and serotonin, and can reduce the activity of the excitatory brain chemical glutamate. It also plays a role in the gene expression of natural detoxification enzymes in the brain, including glutathiones-transferase (GST), offering important brain antioxidant protection, and contributing to better cognitive health and memory. Other research has shown it may increase DHA in the brain, and even promote cognitive longevity.*
