LUMA TC Safety Information

The safety of Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate found in LUMA TC is comparable to low dose forms of other nutrients such as zinc. In fact, Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate has a much wider therapeutic and biologically compatible (non-toxic) window than zinc. The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has estimated that the daily lithium intake of an average adult ranges from about 0.65mg to 3mg naturally with the intake of food and water. 

Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate has been officially added to the World Health Organization’s list of nutritionally essential trace elements alongside zinc, iodine, and others. The provisional RDA for Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium is 1 mg per day. Doses up to 40 mgs a day are very safe with a low incidence of side effects. 

After 30 years of Nutritional Micro-Dose use of Lithium Orotate internationally, it has been shown to be completely free of negative side effects and without toxicity to the brain, heart, kidneys, and liver. Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate at 5 mgs will not cause weight gain, sedation, or sleepiness. Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate does not require blood tests to establish a therapeutic level as prescription forms do, nor is it toxic to the kidneys like lithium Rx pharmaceuticals. 

It is important to understand that most side effects and reactions are dose-dependent and none should be expected with Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate 5 mg doses, such as in LUMA TC. A typical dosage of the drug form lithium carbonate for Rx bipolar depression is 337 mgs of elemental lithium that contrasts with the 5 mgs in LUMA TC. Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate is a highly bioavailable orotate chelate and functions as a targeted delivery system to the brain. Therefore, the Nutritional Micro-Dose Lithium Orotate can be used with proven effectiveness in the LUMA TC indicated IEM claims in low doses of 5 mg.
