Lithium: The Power Mineral for Your Brain
I came across lithium's amazing properties after I was asked to write an article on bipolar disorder. It was then that I discovered it could benefit nearly everyone. Especially those over 50. Research is showing that lithium actually protects and increases your brain cells. It has shown amazing results in preventing and treating alzheimers and dementia. Parkinson's disease has also improved in people who supplement lithium. Studies have shown that it increased grey matter in 8 out of 10 patients in just one month! Incredible!
Some researchers and doctors are recommending that anyone who is on any sort of medication that effects the brain, (anti-anxiety, anti-depression, etc) supplement lithium daily to protect their brain cells. Dosage for lithium needs to be small and in the Lithium Orotate form. Lithium Orotate is more bioavailable and much safer than prescription lithium. 10 mg a day is recommended for anti-aging benefits of the brain. We now carry Lithium Orotate here at Wayne and Mary's Nutrition and it is pretty inexpensive. On prescription meds for depression, have a family history of alzheimers, or starting to forget things yourself? Give your brain a boost with Lithium!
