But with the costs of everything going up (including those life-changing supplements!)...

Have you considered getting a second job or wanting a “side hustle” to ADD to your cash flow?

In my opinion, there is no absolutely NO better option, than learning how to TRADE FOR A LIVING

I am a full-time trader, but I only trade for 1-3 hours per day (all while catching up on the all the latest shows, Youtube rabbit holes and so on :-))

Lithium is commonly known for its use in batteries and technology devices, but a recent study has found that it can also have anti-aging and health benefits.

The study, which was published on January 11, 2023, found that lithium treatment can extend human lifespan. The study also found that among a group of half a million individuals, lithium use was associated with life extension and better anti-aging effects. Historically, lithium has been used to treat mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, mania, and schizophrenia, and it has been shown to have cognitive effects that can protect against dementia. In this study, it was found that lithium was the strongest factor in regards to increased survival effects in the group of people studied, corresponding to 3.6 times lower chances of dying at a given age for lithium users compared to users of other antipsychotic drugs. However, it is important to note that the study only looked at individuals who already had mental disorders, and it is not clear if lithium would have similar effects on healthy individuals.


When it comes to lithium, people usually associate it with batteries and technological devices.

Pretty much all electric vehicles have some lithium in their batteries, but not many people know that lithium as a compound can also have many anti-aging and health benefits.

In this video, I’m going to talk about a new study that showed how lithium can extend human lifespan. The study is very new, published January 11, 2023. It found that lithium treatment extends human lifespan. They also found that among a group of half a million individuals, lithium use was associated with life extension and better anti-aging effects.

We here find therapeutic supplementation of lithium linked to decreased mortality of individuals diagnosed with affective disorders. Historically, lithium has been used to treat mental disorders such as bipolar disorder, mania, and schizophrenia, and it has been shown to have cognitive effects that can protect against dementia. In this study, they found that analysis reveals lithium to be the strongest factor in regards to increased survival effects in this cohort of people. Corresponding to 3.6 times lower chances of dying at a given age for lithium users compared to users of other antipsychotic drugs.

It’s hard to control because if the individuals are taking antipsychotic drugs then they already have these effective disorders, and it looks like other mental disorders. They’re not healthy in the best optimal sense. Just adding the lithium obviously compared to regular people who don’t have any mental disorders, then you know it doesn’t mean that lithium could be even better for individuals who don’t have any mental disorders. It apparently is better than these antipsychotic drugs and not taking any drugs if you have a mental disorder.

So, you can see from this chart, the individuals who did take lithium, they do have increased survival and reduced mortality and across pretty much all ages. But significantly more after the age of 65, that’s where the difference between taking lithium and not taking lithium apparently widens significantly more.

Lithium was actually associated with more survival than even BMI and alcohol intake or exercise or smoking. So, yeah, this is definitely one of the most significant factors that determined the survival between these individuals in this group. But lithium has also other studies showing that it has longevity effects in pretty much all animals, all species in humans.

We find here an inverse correlation between drinking water lithium concentrations and all-cause mortality in 18 neighboring Japanese municipalities with a total of 1.2 million individuals. A next study in 2018 found that lithium in Texas tap water is negatively associated with all-cause mortality and premature death. This study built on the Japanese study, using a larger data set with several Texas counties. Our study shows that lithium concentrations in tap water are negatively associated with all-cause mortality. Thus, our present findings extend and reinforce lithium’s purported life-prolonging effects in humans, not only just all-cause mortality, but even suicide.

So, lithium levels in the public drinking water supply and risk of suicide. Higher lithium levels in drinking water might have a protective effect on the risk of suicide in men. Here’s the graph of the study and you can see that the higher concentrations of lithium, around 25 micrograms per liter, are associated with significantly reduced rates of suicide compared to having zero or five micrograms per liter. It’s almost like a linear, dose-specific response in reducing the race of mortality in this study. And this finding is also supported by other studies on lithium in the prevention of suicidal behavior and all-cause mortality in patients with mood disorders.

It kind of like you know stabilizes the mind. A lot of it has to do apparently through Nrf2. Lithium causes a small hormetic effect similar to other supplements or activities and increases Nrf2 which is a stimulator or activator of Glutathione, also which increases antioxidant defense status. So, this is the reason why lithium has effects on reducing inflammation, reducing oxidative stress and protecting against many aspects of aging through oxidative stress. And this is the reason why it has also effects on the brain in terms of neuroprotective effects, dementia.

Now, lithium is one of those minerals that doesn’t have an actual RDA. Like there is no dietary guideline for getting lithium from your diet or water. Usually, most people get around let’s say your tap water has some lithium, then in general you’re going to get something around, like you know, at least one milligram or 0.5 milligrams of lithium per day from dietary sources and the tap water.

However, if you’re living in a rural region that doesn’t have any lithium in your water, or you have actual you know, you’re drinking just purified water, distilled water, it doesn’t have any minerals then, yeah, chances are you may be like someone on the lower end around like you know 0.5 milligrams. I think that generally these studies also support that you want to have at least like one milligram of lithium per day from any source like your water or your dietary resources.

However, personally, I also use like a micro dosing of lithium or a tate. I take like one milligram not every day, but you know definitely like you know twice a week, three times a week or something like that. And I use it mostly as like the brain protective effects. I use it as a nootropic, but uh yeah and apparently in microdoses, it also has life lifespan extending effects and reduces risk of mortality. Lithium is also deemed to be relatively safe. It doesn’t have any like actual toxic side effects unless you’re taking like you know some ungodly amounts of it. If you take like one milligram or yeah you drink some tap water that has lithium, then yeah chances are nothing is going to happen. And they found even in people with cardiac disease, lithium is generally safe.

However, pregnant women should definitely avoid getting too much lithium or taking a lithium supplement because they can increase the risk of cardiac malformations in the baby. So, yeah, like if you’re pregnant then definitely don’t do this. In conclusion, lithium in tap water is associated with reduced rates of suicide, homicide, and reduced risk of all-cause mortality as well. Using lithium as a supplement has anti-aging and protective effects in individuals who have like mental disorders and mental effective orders. So, uh yeah, I think that like a micro dosing lithium as a nootropic, even is definitely something that I’m doing and I think could be well worth it.

If you take like one milligram of lithium you know a few times a week definitely don’t do it like every day, I think it’s not necessary, but you know every once in a while it’s probably kind of a good good strategy to do.



Anti-Aging Effects of Lithium

By inhibiting the enzyme GSK-3, lithium can promote longevity, slow brain aging, and improve health parameters.

For decades, research has suggested that lithium has unique health benefits.

It may help prevent cognitive decline and may slow the aging process.

Much of lithium’s impact is due to its inhibition of an enzyme in the body known as glycogen synthase kinase-3 (GSK-3).

GSK-3 overactivity has been tied to rapid aging and risk for chronic diseases.

Studies suggest that GSK-3 inhibition is largely responsible for lithium’s ability to protect brain function and extend lifespan.


Low-dose lithium could slow kidney aging, new research finds

Best known therapeutically as a treatment for bipolar disorder, researchers are uncovering low-dose lithium’s potential age-defying properties.

Lithium is a soft, silvery-white metal that is used in the manufacture of aircraft and in certain batteries. From a health point of view, it is best known for its use in treating mood disorders, but low-dose lithium has also been shown in lab experiments to extend the lifespan of fruit flies and roundworms [1], while observational studies have suggested tap water naturally laced with trace amounts of lithium might improve human longevity [2].

Now researchers at The University of Toledo have recently found that low-dose lithium acts as a powerful anti-aging agent in the kidneys [3].
