Question: Isn’t Alzheimer’s genetic? If it’s in my genes, then there’s nothing I can do to reduce my risk, right?
Answer from SilicaWaters.com: Thank you for this important question on Alzheimer’s and genetics. Although Alzheimer’s can be hereditary, in the form of the disease called familial Alzheimer’s, this accounts for less than 5% of all Alzheimer’s cases, and usually has an early onset.
The more common form of Alzheimer’s, known as sporadic Alzheimer’s and that occurs in old age, has no known direct genetic cause. Cutting-edge research taking place at Keele University suggests Alzheimer’s may be caused by aluminium toxicity. Aluminium is a ubiquitous metal, present in many everyday products such as cookware, cosmetics and vaccines, and over time this metal can accumulate in the body, which research suggests may lead to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.
We can all help to reduce our body burden of aluminium by drinking a silica-rich mineral water every day. Silica-rich waters are unique, as, unlike other silica containing products and supplements, they can cross the gut wall into the blood stream and bind with aluminium in the blood, then safely remove it.
We are not prisoners to our genes, and there are simple, everyday steps we can take to reduce our Alzheimer’s risk, such as drinking a silica-rich water like the one we recommend. Drinking ACILIS by Spritzer silica-rich water every day not only helps to keep you healthier by removing aluminium from your body, but 10% from every bottle sold in the UK is donated to vital research taking place at Keele University. This research aims to shed further light on the connection between Alzheimer’s and aluminium, and keep us all cognitively healthier as we age.
