Silicon (Si as OSA) a Compound giving Therapeutic Properties for Curative Mineral Waters

In a very recent paper “Silicon solubility control in curative mineral waters, the Sudetes Mts, SW Poland Role of Alumino silicate solid phases” presented at The Eighth Keele Meeting on Aluminium

21 – 23 February 2009 at Trest, Czech Republic.

The researcher, Professor Dariusz Dobrzynski from the Department of Groundwater Geochemistry, Faculty of Geology, University of Warsaw, Poland, mentioned that Silicon (Si as OSA) at level > 25 mg/L is, traditionally, since more than 100 years, regarded as a component giving therapeutic properties for curative medicinal waters.

Comment:

Now we understand the popularity and the mystic healing effects of the European Spas are the result of the combination of natural minerals from these regions. For example, in Poland, the natural mineral waters from the Sudetes Mountains are known to have curative properties.

One of those minerals, giving these health benefits is Silicon (Si which exist as Orthosilicic Acid (OSA) ).
We are fortunate that Spritzer Natural Mineral Water also contain about 35 mg/L of Si as OSA which Professor Dobrzynski claimed the therapeutic effect of Si is > 25 mg/L.

Si as OSA has been found to be beneficial for connective tissues such as bone, skin, hair, nail, blood vessels as Si helps to synthesize collagen. OSA is also known to be very effective in blocking the absorption of Aluminium from the small intestine. Aluminium is a known neurotoxin and is implicated in Alzheimer Disease )AD).

Hence drinking one litre of Spritzer Natural Mineral Water provides 35 mg of Si which could bring many health benefits.
