Is the lithium in Energizer Batteries the same as the lithium in dietary supplements? Actually, yes. Lithium is a trace element (better known as a metal) that's contained in grains and vegetables. To that end, the lithium aspartate used in dietary supplements is much more bioavailable than other forms.

Why would anyone want to take lithium? Nutritionists say that lithium aspartate may indeed help support overall health. Lithium aspartate may support healthy brain, thyroid and cognitive function, as well as promote a healthy mood.

Lithium supplements are commonly found in capsule or tablet form. Please consult with your doctor before adding any supplement, such as lithium aspartate, to your daily routine.
