Uses For Lithium liquid
Cognitive Function: Lithium liquid provides the nutritionally essential trace element lithium at the low doses found in plant-derived foods and drinking water of lithium-rich regions. Lithium is an essential micronutrient with some chemical properties similar to calcium and magnesium. It is present in all organs and tissues in the body. Lithium has a long history of clinical use for supporting healthy mood and behavior. Mechanisms for this involve promoting dopamine and serotonin neurotransmitter activity. Lithium also plays a role in gene expression of natural detoxification enzymes in the brain, including glutathione-s-transferase (GST). This offers important neuron antioxidant protection, which may also contribute to healthy spatial memory.
A 12-month, randomized, double-blind trial involving 45 individuals suggests that low-dose lithium supplementation promotes cognitive performance, in part by supporting healthy cerebrospinal fluid protein concentrations. Lithium may also support healthy brain receptor function, protein processing and brain signaling cascades to maintain healthy mental function.
What Is The Source of Lithium?
Lithium is derived from elemental ore. Citrate is derived from corn dextrose fermentation.
