Trace Lithium and Alzheimer's Disease: The trace element lithium is commonly used as a drug to treat conditions like bipolar disease and other mood disorders. New research on natural levels of lithium in drinking water indicates that higher trace amounts of lithium (much lower than usual drug doses) are associated with longer life in those with Alzheimer's disease. Other research in animals indicates that lithium has neuroprotective effects. Much more research is needed before lithium can be considered an essential nutrient for humans.
