There is a lot of hocus pocus surrounding lithium orotate.

The active ingredient in lithium orotate is the lithium ion, just like in lithium carbonate and lithium citrate, the salt forms traditionally used in medicine. It is possible that lithium orotate is metabolized differently than the other salts, but the active compound is the lithium ion. The science is limited, but evidence suggests that the difference is mainly in Naturopath marketing.

The main difference between lithium carbonate and lithium orotate is that lithium carbonate is sold by evil Big Pharma whose profit-driven motives are destroying our society, and lithium orotate is sold by naturopaths, who are working for the good of society and apparently are not profit-driven despite making a profit.
