Frequently Asked Questions
How does EpiMatter work?
How much EpiMatter should I take?
We have found that 1-2 EpiMatter per day work wonderfully. Some have even found 1/2 a day helpful. It is best to be consistent when you take it for the best results. Our EpiMatter comes in a guaranteed total Lithium content of 10mg per capsule, giving about .42mg of elemental Lithium. Current research states we should have at least 1mg of Elemental Lithium per day. https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11838882/
How long does it take for EpiMatter to start working?
Can I take this pregnant or nursing?
How young can someone be to start EpiMatter?
Does EpiMatter help you sleep?
Can I take EpiMatter along with other medications?
This is always best answered by a qualified pharmacist familiar with the differences between lithium orotate and other prescriptions. These are the better providers to counsel for prescription interactions.
From our research, we found Lithium can interact with the following:
- Muscle relaxants
- Loop diuretics
- ACE inhibitors
- Calcium channel blockers
If you take any of the mentioned medications, you need to talk to your healthcare provider (qualified pharmacist) before supplementing with lithium orotate.
I have a dry mouth or a headache when I take your product. Why?
We have noted that our product will show you quickly if you are anemic. In simple terms, anemia means your cells don’t have the strength to carry nutrients where they need to. When we hear this symptom, we ask if they are anemic. These symptoms have been 100% yes and are easily fixed by adding Standard Process Ferrofood. Once the anemia is balanced, the side effects disappear.
Is EpiMatter Lithium Orotate safe, and what is the maximum dosage one can take?
To answer this question takes an explanation and math. We have elemental Lithium per day in mg and then Lithium orotate supplements. Both are represented by mg, which can lead to confusion. A 120mg capsule of Lithium Orotate equals 4.6 mg of elemental Lithium. 5mg of elemental Lithium is the recommended safe dose per day. EpiMatter is sold in 10 mg capsules, about .4mg of Elemental Lithium per capsule. So you would have to take over 12 Epimatter a day, long term, to be in an unsafe range. That said, we have found less is more with this product, and most take 1-2 daily with fantastic success.
Lithium toxicity can occur after long-term use of more than 12 capsules daily. It can lead to nausea, tremors, impaired kidney function, muscle weakness, and reduced thyroid and parathyroid gland functioning.
Here is a link to a 2-year study using Lithium Orotate for various conditions that showed doses under 5 mg of elemental Lithium Orotate per day are safe and won’t induce side effects.
