SILICA (AS SILICON ) IMPROVES HEART FUNCTION
PRESS RELEASE: JANUARY 2020
A new research has just been published in the peer-reviewed journal, Nutrients 2019, 11, 2574:
“Dietary Supplementation with Silicon-Enriched Spirulina Improves Arterial Remodeling and Function in Hypertensive Rats” (View Paper Here). The authors are from University of Montpellier and INSERM , France.
The study showed that the benefits to the heart was attributed to the Silicon supplementation which contributes to :
.An improvement in arterial muscle functions resulting in an increase in aortic contraction and relaxation.
.A decrease in arterial wall hypertrophy related to the prevention of extracellular matrix degradation.
.An increase in elastin and collagen levels.
These changes have an impact on blood pressure which was significantly reduced after Silicon supplementation. The scientists concluded that Silicon supplementation may be important in preventing vascular (heart) degenerative processes and also potential aging.
A publication from the School of Environmental & Natural Resource Science , University Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) , “ Source apportionment and health risk assessment among specific age groups during haze and non-haze episodes in Kuala Lumpur , Malaysia “ published in Science of the Total Environment 601-602 (2017) 556-570 (Read Text Here). They found aluminum to be one of the highest toxic element found in PM2.5.
In an earlier publication , the efficiency of Silicon in synergy with spirulina to prevent metabolic, oxidative, inflammatory disorders and vascular (heart) dysfunction was established.
Even in the 1800’s, one of the greatest scientist of all time , Louis Pasteur had predicted the importance of Silicic Acid (soluble Silicon ) to our health.
Earlier research that touted Silicon supports blood vessel health , making it extremely important in supporting heart health can be seen from these publications :
Professor Klaus Schwarz of UCLA reviewed a survey of heart deaths in Finland , conducted between 1959 and 1974 and he found an inverse relationship between silicon in drinking water and heart death.
Even since 1957, studies by French scientists , Loeper M and Loeper J revealed the importance of Silicon to the heart.
In a subsequent publication, Loeper J et al ,(1979) it was shown that Silicon supplementation inhibited atheromatous plaques and lipid deposits . It was proposed that the preservation of elastic fiber architecture, as well as of ground substance and the lack of free fatty acid accumulation in the aortic intima decreased plaque formation.
Other evidences of Silicon protection of the heart can be derived from these publications:
The above finding suggest that consumption of Silicon Rich Mineral Water may have longevity benefits.
Now you may ask , how can I consume more Silicon ? Well one of the smart way to ensure you obtain enough Silicon (or Orthosilicic Acid (OSA) is to drink Silicon (OSA) Rich Natural Mineral Water. Apart from satisfying your hydration needs , you also get the functional benefits of Silicon as a bonus.
SPRITZER NATURAL MINERAL WATER is recognised by the University of London and Keele University from United Kingdom (UK) to be naturally rich in Silicon (OSA).
So ensure you get your 8 glasses of water daily (~2 litres ) by drinking SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water for a healthier life.
