Lithium is the classic, natural mood stabilizer. One of the original psychoactive medications. It's no suprise that it's presence in water is linked to a calmer populace.
I am confused, as I thought Lithium has been used for a while for mental disorders, such as Bipolar disorders and other conditions as well.
They didn't actually recommend adding Lithium. Just to research areas which have natural Lithium in the water.The Japanese researchers called for further research in other countries but they stopped short of any suggestion that lithium be added to drinking water.
