I had started taking lithium orotate 120 mg for foot neuropathy. I had read it would help, but it didn't. But after about 3 weeks, I began to notice my memory improving. I work as a gate guard and people would ask if I didn't remember them. I didn't. But after the lithium I started recognizing them. I have been taking lithium for about a year and have had significant memory improvement overall. I am 66 years old and have signifcant family history of Alzheimers. I have a friend I was telling about this. He is 77 years old and told me he has difficulty recognizing faces and general memory loss. Now after 6 months, he has had signifcant improvement of his memory. His wife has been so impressed with his improvement that she has started taking it just in case. Search the internet and you can find studies that show a correlation between lithium and neuroplasticity. That's the brains ability to heal ie grow new brain cells. I wonder if the aluminum found in Alzheimers brains is the brain using aluminum because there is little or no lithium available. I am posting this hoping to help others and spur research into lithium research for memory disorders.
