I read in a review of lithium orotate that it is broken down to uridine so I looked at the chemical structures and they are very similar, with the uridine just having a sugar molecule attached on the N and the COO- Li+. group removed. Interesting.
Uridine is one of the compounds hubby is taking as well as lithium orotate so it seems he is getting more uridine than I thought. Maybe this is one of the benefits of the lithium orotate, not just the Lithium.
