Highly effective for steadying mood / reducing anger

Posted by 4616715287013331533 on May 11, 2014

I found this micro-dose Lithium very effective for creating calmer, positive mood in myself, and for reducing and eventually stopping a long-standing extreme anger problem in a family member. It worked even when taking just 3 capsules per person per week. So I'm shattered it's discontinued. It was an invaluable offering from iHerb. NOTE: 5mg is a true micro dose of a trace element. It's of the order supplied naturally from soil and water. This tiny dose, or even much less, is effective for improving mood in otherwise healthy people lacking this background Lithium source (very common). This is VERY different from Lithium pharmaceutical drugs used for people who are sick with Bipolar Disorder or Schizophrenia! Pharmaceutical doses go up to 338mg elemental Lithium per day = 68 capsules = 1 entire bottle of Doctor's Best Lithium Aspartate every 42 hours! The drugs also contain a different form (carbonate) and require you to have your blood levels monitored for safety while taking these very high doses. So if you are seriously unwell don't imagine that you can self-treat with the ultra tiny doses in this product!! There is no comparison with the mega-doses contained in prescribed drugs.

Best lithium aspartate

Posted by TinVal on Aug 18, 2012

Many health practitioners don't realize the need of lithium. It is a kind of misunderstood mineral just like Iodine is. In one study, researchers blocked a brain artery in rats. Some were pre-treated with lithium for 16 days, the rest weren't. The researchers reported that the lithium-treated rats experienced 56 percent less cell death and significantly fewer neurologic deficits than the control rats................. The amounts of lithium researchers recommend for brain anti-aging range from 10 to 20 milligrams (from lithium aspartate or lithium orotate) daily.................. Lithium significantly protects against this type of cell death-so much so that this effect has been called "robust" (a term scientists use to mean "It really works!").

stomach ache

Posted by Reviewer1558268 on Sep 04, 2011

used for 2 months and thought I had good effect and noticed more stable mood. I´m not bipolar but maybe slightly cyclothymic w/ about 3-4 depressive episodes every year, but nothing too serious. Anyway, after two months use 5mg / day I noticed stomach pains, and this grew into real sickness. Ditched the Li and it gradually dissappeared, now I am pretty certain Li was the culprit although it could be one of the other 15 supplements I take, or an interaction effect of some kind. I understand there is some uncertanity with how strong the orotate/aspartate form of Li really is so I just wanted to throw this out there for others.
