It's a good treatment for mood disorders, hyperactivity, anxiety, panic attacks, behavioral health issues such as bipolar disorder and treatment-resistant depression with suicidal thinking.

"Using data for 27 Texas counties from 1978-1987, it is shown that the incidence rates of suicide, homicide, and rape are significantly higher in counties whose drinking water supplies contain little or no lithium than in counties with water lithium levels ranging from 70-170 micrograms/L."
Lithium orotate treatment should be around 5 mg to 20 mg per day. Some recommend starting with 5 mg and then step up to 20 mg. But perhaps 5 mg is enough? Treatment with Lithium orotate is likely to avoid all the negative side effects that comes with traditional Lithium treatment that ranges between 300 mg, 600 mg or 1200 mg per day.

Sulforaphane derived from Broccoli sprouts for autism, for all.
Sulforaphane administration results for autism: substantial improvements in social interaction and verbal communication, along with decreases in repetitive, ritualistic behaviors, compared to those who received a placebo.
Perhaps this also could benefit people with Asperger's syndrome.
Powders as dietary supplements do not seem to be effective. The fresh sprouts must be used.
One advice is to give "one to three cups (depending on age and size) of broccoli sprouts every day".
Not only broccoli sprouts generates sulforaphane but other cruciferus plants as well such as Califlower sprouts, Cabbage sprouts and Kale sprouts.
Glucoraphanin and myrosinase in the plants are the precursors to Sulforaphane. Eating the plants (chewing, chopping, cutting them) creates a reaction that produces sulforaphane in the body.
Powder form does not seem to work. Buy seeds and grow your own sprouts and put in sallads, on sandwiches or make smoothies. Smoothies is perhaps most popular among children.
youtube.com I ate broccoli sprouts for 7 days.
"Sulforaphane also helps to reduce depression and anxiety!"
