More about this report

Very low doses of lithium are being used to treat mood and other psychological conditions, and even to prevent dementia -- including Alzheimer's disease. Many low-dose lithium supplements have come on the market to meet this need. But how good is the quality of these supplements? Do they really contain what they claim? Which are best? And how solid is the research behind the use of these products? 

To answer these questions, recently purchased popular brands of lithium supplements providing 0.05 to 20 mg of lithium (from lithium orotate, lithium aspartate, and lithium chloride). It then tested these supplements for their amounts of lithium and potential contamination with toxic heavy metals (lead, cadmium, and arsenic), and also checked if tablets would properly release their ingredients. ConsumerLab's experts also reviewed the scientific literature behind the use of low-dose lithium.
