New Discovery of OSA

New Discovery of OSA

Soluble Silicon (as OSA) May Show Anti-Diabetic Properties,
i.e. Prevention/Treatment of Blood Glucose Level Elevation.

Professor Fusako Maehira and his team from University of the Ryukyus, Nishihara, Okinawa, Japan reported in their latest publication,

“Anti-diabetic effects including diabetic nephropathy of anti-osteoporotic trace minerals on diabetic mice” in the prestigious journal, Nutrition 12 August 2010 that anti-osteoporotic trace minerals, Silicon (Si) or OSA, and Strontium (Sr), and Coral Sand as a natural Si-containing material, showed novel anti-diabetic effects of lowering blood glucose level, improving the tolerance to insulin, leptin, and adiponectin, and reducing the risk of glomorulopathy through modulation of related gene expression in the pancreas and kidney.

This latest research is indeed a breakthrough for the trace mineral (Si) or OSA in a new field – diabetes.

Diabetes has surged in the 21st century due to increasing affluence. An estimated 3.4 million Malaysians were diagnosed with diabetes in 2006 according to the National Health and Morbidity Survey by the Ministry of Health.

Worldwide there are 3.2 million deaths per year attributed to complication of diabetes with 6 deaths per minute.

Living a healthier lifestyle like having adequate exercise, sleep and reducing stress level is very important. Cutting down on carbohydrates and sugar is the way to go to avoid your glucose spiking.

Hence the wisest choice for your hydration need is a bottle of water. Spritzer Natural Mineral Water would be your best choice since it comes naturally with OSA verified by the University of London and Keele University of United Kingdom.

So drink up with Spritzer Natural Mineral Water, OSA. It may be able to help you fight against diabetes.


It is interesting to observe that Coral Sand used in the study containing the Si (as OSA) is naturally present in Okinawa and this city has been identified with the highest number of citizens living over 100 years old.
