Swanson Lithium Orotate is a supplement that enriches the diet with lithium. Lithium orotate contained in the composition is a safe, non-toxic and highly bioavailable form of lithium that can be used without the risk of side effects.

The product regulates the functions of the nervous system, promotes emotional balance and reduces the intensity of anxiety-depressive disorders. It also positively affects cognitive health, improves coordination between both cerebral hemispheres, and strengthens memory and mental performance. It has been successfully used as a support for the treatment of more serious disorders such as bipolar disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Lithium is a widespread alkali metal that can be found naturally in water, soil and vegetables, fruits and plants growing on fertile and rich soils. It belongs to trace elements, which in small quantities are necessary for the proper functioning of the body. They’re used by i.e. enzymes, hormones, it’s also necessary for the proper transport of vitamin B12 to cells.

Many myths have arisen around lithium, which result mainly from the ignorance of its forms and their pharmacokinetics. The composition of the presented preparation contains lithium orotate, which was formed by combining the lithium molecule with orotic acid. It affects the body in a slightly different way than lithium chloride or carbonate, it’s safe and does not carry any risk of toxicity.

Improving mental well-being
Lithium has a significant impact on the work of the nervous system. It promotes emotional balance, reduces mood swings, has a calming effect, and suppresses anxiety and aggression. It has a significant anti-depressant potential. In one of the studies conducted in Japan, it was proved that a small addition of lithium to water in municipal waterworks contributed to the reduction of suicide and robberies in the district where the experiment was conducted. Similar studies were repeated in Texas and in Greece.

Scientists explain this phenomenon in several ways. The studies proved that lithium supports the activity of important neurotransmitters - it helps lower noradrenaline levels and stimulates the production responsible for the good mood of serotonin. In addition, it enhances the sensitivity in postsynaptic receptors (mainly serotonin 5-HT1A). It can also contribute to the increase in the level of BDNF (neurotrophic factor of brain origin), which controls dopaminergic neurons, which is also important for psychological well-being.

Improving mental performance
Lithium has a beneficial effect on cognitive performance. Supplementing its deficit favours the strengthening of memory, increases the rate of knowledge acquisition and promotes high intellectual efficiency. It can also reduce the risk of developing neurodegenerative diseases.

Researchers have observed that under the influence of lithium, neurogenesis, or the formation of new nerve cells in the two most important areas of the brain - the hippocampus and the sub-ventricular zone of the lateral ventricles - is intensifying. In addition, there is an increase in the concentration of N-acetyl aspartate, which largely determines creativity and mental performance. It seems that a higher level of NAA promotes the synchronization of both hemispheres, which translates into a greater divisibility of attention and the ability to perform multiple tasks at one time.

Lithium has a neuroprotective effect, which makes it a valuable element in the prevention of neurodegenerative diseases. The studies have shown that it reduces the excitotoxicity of glutamate which also reduces the risk of neuronal death. It also stimulates the production of the Bcl-2 protein group, that which is active in the frontal cortex and protects cells against apoptosis.

Support for the therapy of mental disorders
Lithium is widely used in the treatment of mental illness. In standard therapies under the supervision of a physician, lithium carbonate is usually used. However, research shows that sensible doses of lithium orotate may also contribute to the reduction of adverse symptoms of various disorders of the nervous system.

It has been observed that lithium is particularly helpful in cases of obsessive-compulsive disorder. The exact mechanism of its action is not known, but probably is related to the effect on the level of dopamine in the brain. In one study it was proved that pathological gamblers, resistant to standard treatment, responded well to lithium therapy and reported lower intensity of OCD symptoms.

Lithium relieves the symptoms of bipolar disorder. It helps stabilize the mood, reduces the frequency of manic episodes and depression. Scientists do not agree on how it works. It seems that the most important is the regulation of the circadian rhythm, which is significantly shorter in the case of patients and the optimization of inositol-controlled transmission.

Lithium can provide relief to patients with Tourette syndrome. It’s a serious neurological disorder characterized by involuntary muscle contractions and uncontrolled voice tics. In one study, lithium supplementation was more effective than the standard haloperidol.

Lithium and vitamin B12
Researchers believe there is a relationship between lithium administration and vitamin B12 metabolism. It’s believed that this element is necessary for the proper transport of cobalamin to cells, including brain cells. Studies conducted in people with mutation of the MTHFR gene showed that administration of lithium in all patients decreased the level of folic acid and vitamin B12. This effect was explained by the improvement in the metabolism of vitamin B12 and the increase in its uptake by the cells.

To sum up, Swanson Lithium Orotate is a supplement that allows you to safely compensate for the deficit of lithium in the body. It’s especially recommended for people who struggle with anxiety-depressive disorders, complain about mood swings, distraction and weakening of cognitive functions.
