Strawberrys, in a simplified way lithium is used to stabilize neurons. As far as I know the mechanism of how it works exactly hasn’t been cleared up 100%. If the serum levels are monitored closely it has very few side effects. If you’re interested in a list of potential side effects, let me know as a new question and I’ll do so. Good luck.
