Silicon Enriched Mineral Water May Slow the Advancement of Alzheimer's Disease

Researchers have long suspected that there is a link between high levels of aluminum (a known neurotoxin) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). For the first time, a study has been conducted testing the link, known as the aluminum hypothesis of Alzheimer's disease.

In this study, the researchers found that drinking mineral water enriched with silicon may dramatically reduce aluminum levels in the body and provide noticeable cognitive benefits in people with AD.

The study included 15 participants with AD who were given one quart of water containing 35 mg/Q of silicon daily for 12 weeks. At the conclusion of the study, the total amount of aluminum present in the bodies of the participants had significantly decreased.

Eight out of the fifteen participants showed no further deterioration in cognitive function, and three individuals actually showed improvements.

The study was conducted at Keele University in the UK and was published online ahead of print on September 13, 2012, in the Journal of Alzheimer's Disease.

Previous research has suggested that consuming more vitamin D, beta-carotene, vitamin E, flavanols, coffee, and antioxidants may reduce the risk of AD.
