A good slogan for lithium is "Lithium: The Salt n’ Battery Element." This slogan enumerates two of the most widely known uses of this element, as a material in rechargeable batteries and as a treatment for bipolar disorder and other diagnoses in the form of lithium salts.
Lithium is the third element in the periodic table. This silvery metal is soft and considered the lightest among other metals, making it useful for several industrial applications. Lithium is highly reactive. It only occurs in nature as part of compounds, usually formed through ionic bonds. The principle behind the use of lithium salts to stabilize moods is the ions' neurological effects.
