Lithium is a trace mineral that supports healthy cognitive function, brain health, and possibly even longevity. This supplement contains 1000 mcg—or 1 milligram—of this health-promoting nutrient.
What Is Lithium?
Trace mineral lithium has traditionally been used for mood health support. Our Lithium 1000 mcg uses a much lower dose than what you would take for those traditional reasons. So why should you take a lithium supplement? Because this nutrient promotes neuronal health, already-healthy brain glucose metabolism, and cognitive function—all absolutely essential elements of a happy, healthy life.
Lithium encourages healthy clearance of proteins that can affect cognition and memory—as well as the process for clearing cellular debris.
Lithium 1000 mcg Benefits
- Promotes brain health and function at the cellular level
- Encourages natural process for clearing proteins from the brain
- Supports already-healthy brain glucose levels
- May help maintain DNA health and longevity
Lithium and Longevity
Recent studies indicate that lithium may help support longevity. This is because some evidence indicates a correlation between long-term high-dose lithium supplementation and healthy telomere length. Telomeres are the “endcaps” of our DNA strands that protect our delicate chromosomes—but they get shorter as time goes on. So the longer you keep your telomeres healthy, the better your chances of keeping your DNA healthy.
