Lithium Synergy™ combines lithium orotate, known for its ability to help stabilize mood swings related to depression and other mood disorders, with vitamin B12 (methylcobalamin) and trimethylglycine to support healthy methylation pathways.
How does lithium orotate work?
Why add vitamin B12 and TMG (trimethylglycine)?
Observational studies have found as many as 30% of patients hospitalized for depression are deficient in vitamin B12. The reasons for the relationship between vitamin B12 deficiency and depression may involve s-adenosylmethionine (SAMe). Vitamin B12 is required for the synthesis of SAMe, a methyl group donor essential for methylation reactions and subsequently the metabolism of neurotransmitters. SAMe deficiency has been related to depression. This hypothesis is supported by several studies that have shown supplementation with SAMe improves depressive symptoms.
