Researchers at Peoples’ Friendship University of Russia (RUDN) have discovered that the levels of aluminium found in the hair and urine of obese people is higher than average.
One hypothesis is that aluminium can affect metabolism and provoke obesity. The article was published in Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology.
There are more than two billion obese people on the planet. The main reason for this is overeating and a sedentary lifestyle, although other factors, such as genetic predisposition and environmental conditions, can also push a person towards being overweight.
Studies show that microelements that enter the body can play a role. Mercury, cadmium, lead, as well as tin compounds are the leading metals that can affect the weight of an individual. Aluminium is also considered a toxic metal, that can cause inflammation and oxidative stress in cells. That is why doctors from the group of Anatoly Skalny, head of the Department of Medical Elementology at RUDN University, decided to study if there is a connection between this metal and excess weight.
The research involved 205 people with increased body mass index (BMI) and 206 people with normal weight in a control group. Generally, if the BMI of a person exceeds 30, then a person is believed to be overweight. In the control group, BMI averaged 22.5, and 33.3 in the experimental group.
Each participant of this study was asked if they suffer from hypertension, diabetes, atherosclerosis, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, or have bad habits, whether they live close to a source of metal emissions, and if they have metal implants. Then, urine and hair samples were taken from all participants and analysed using inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS), a method that allows detecting even miniscule amounts of chemical elements in samples.
The average levels of aluminium in the hair and urine of overweight people were higher than in the control group members: by 31% and 46%, respectively. Alternatively, no correlation between the metal content and hypertension, atherosclerosis, and other diseases has been observed. The association between increased aluminium and excess weight was observed only if it was found in urine, meanwhile the relation between the increased BMI and aluminium in the hair was not statistically significant, that is, it could have been a product of random deviations.
RUDN University scientists have concluded that the aluminium content in the body indeed increases in individuals with obesity. It remains unclear, however, what comes first: it is both possible that people with obesity simply consume a lot of aluminium with food and that aluminium changes the metabolism and that leads to obesity. Anatoly Skalny and his colleagues are planning further research to find answers to these questions.

The latest health check of Malaysians was just recently released and the prognosis is bad .
50% of Malaysians are obese and WHO named Malaysia as the fattest country in Asia .
Obesity is also shown to be a risk factor for COVID-19 and also predisposes to risk of higher mortality in young COVID-19 patients .
Could it be that Malaysians may be consuming and exposing to too much aluminium . Since we are living in the Aluminum Age ,where aluminum is ubiquitous ( presence everywhere)
Even the air particulate that we breathe in , are mostly made up of alumin and it gets into our brain directly without going through the blood-brain barrier .
Watch a very brief video of Professor Exley explaining aluminum in air particulate .
So what can we do to minimize the risk of the scourge of aluminum toxicity that we face daily ?
I would suggest , reduce exposure and consumption of products that are known to contain high aluminum additives . Exercise good disciplines of eating nutritional food and healthy lifestyles. Another very effective way of removing aluminum from your body is to take the advice of Mr. Aluminum , Professor Exley , a 35 years expert in studying aluminum toxicity . The professor has discovered that the trace element , Silicon as Silicic Acid is the natural antagonist for aluminum.
Two clinical trials performed on SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water and results published in independent peer-reviewed journals , showing the very effective removal of aluminum when drank 1 to 1.5 liter daily for just 12 weeks .
Here is a quote from the good professor in his latest talk at the Medical Society of London on 27 February 2020.
“ I am drinking a silicon rich mineral water now and I spent as someone in the audience can tell you , 50-60 pounds a month on buying this , is because science tells me that when I drink this, I pee aluminum ———-. In other words , it helps me get aluminum out of the body. And this is the only ,only only thing that has gone through independent science and peer reviewed that has shown to be the case.”
“ I will drink one of these for the rest of my life because I live in the Aluminum Age, I cannot avoid it . And in some cases I won’t avoid it because I like a ——– and things got aluminum in it . So I drink a silicon rich mineral water to help remove it from my body and maybe it also helps with disease. “

SPRITZER – SILICON-RICH NATURAL MINERAL WATER
Professor Gordon Lauc from University of Zagreb, Faculty of Pharmacy& Biochemistry and
Genos Glycoscience Research Laboratory , Zagreb, Crotia , explains in his paper,
“Fighting COVID-19 with Water” published in Journal of Global Health June 2020 Vol 10(1):1-3 (read paper here) how humidity protects our airways mucosal barrier that keeps viruses out. Our mucosal is a membrane that lines inside of our mouth, nose, all airways, eyes, etc and is protecting our cells with a thick layer of glycans and mucins. However , for this barrier to stay functional it is necessary to stay well hydrated to both maintain its structural integrity and enable constant flow of mucins that carry viruses and other pathogens out of the airways . If exposed to dry air, these barriers dry out and cannot perform their protection functions .
Watch this simplied Youtube illustration for a better understanding .
In these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic , every precautions must be taken such as physical distancing , washing hands frequently and from this new finding , to stay well hydrated especially in places of low humidity (air-conditioned rooms ) is very crucial to fight this COVID-19 viruses .
Choose SPRITZER, the Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water for your daily hydration needs . SPRITZER is brought to you from a vast landbank of 330 acres (266 football fields) surrounded by natural tropical rainforest far away from all pollution ensuring the integrity, safety, quality of its natural mineral water. From source to bottle, SPRITZER is untouched by human hands .
SPRITZER has been shown in two clinical trials published in peer reviewed journals to be very powerful in removing the aluminium toxin from the body.
Aluminum being a known toxin can supress our body immune system .
Aluminum is ubiquitous ( presence everywhere in our daily lives )
Professor Chris Exley, the aluminium expert with over 35 years of research , warned that the air particulate we breathe in daily is made up of mostly aluminium which are very inflammatory and hence suppressing our immune system.
Watch Below a very short video of the professor explaining the danger of air particulate.
As you can see, the Silicon presence in SPRITZER can help to remove the aluminium toxicity and helps to improve the overall immune systems as shown by these findings :
In challenging times of COVID-19 pandemic , anything we can do extra to enhance our body immune system is most welcome .

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.
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.

Recent research had identified , aluminium as an abundant toxic metal in atmospheric fine particulate matter (PM2.5). For example , a publication “ The neurotoxicity induced by PM2.5 might be strongly related to changes of the hippocampal tissue structure and neurotransmitter levels” Toxicology Research (Cambridge) 2018 July 31; 7(6): 1144-1157 (read paper here).
The Chinese authors concluded that collectively, metallic elements including lead, aluminium and manganese which are at high levels in PM2.5 particles , can enter the blood circulation following lung deposition and reach different organs , such as the liver, kidney and brain . These metallic elements can cross the Blood Brain Barrier (BBB) to brain tissue and accumulate in the hippocampus, and may induce the abnormal expression of excitatory neurotransmitters and damage to the hippocampus, which affects the learning and memory function of rats.
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 paper here). They found aluminium to be one of the highest toxic element found in PM2.5.
In a very recent interview , Professor Chris Exley, the aluminium toxicity expert with more than 30 years of research commented that most of the air particulate we breathe in are made of aluminium and can be a serious health hazard. Watch less than one minute clip here.
A recent news report linking air pollution to several thousand death in the USA
Aluminium had been implicated to be a cause of Alzheimer’s Disease and many other neurological disorders .
Since Aluminium is so ubiquitous (presence everywhere ) in the environment and diet ,

affirmed the importance of the trace element, silicon as orthosilicic acid (OSA) to promote bone formation through collagen synthesis, osteocalcin synthesis and other bone markers .
Accumulating evidence over the last 40 years suggests that dietary Silicon as orthosilicic acid (OSA) is beneficial to bone formation. In these new studies, Chinese researchers were able to endorse these benefits for bone health . Previously , Silicon has been discovered to be good for connective or collagenous tissues such as bone, brain, blood vessels , skin and hair.
In a review, human and animal studies indicate that Silicon improves bone quality and strength and increase bone mineral density .
In a 2004 prospective study of 2,847 people from the Framingham Offspring Cohort , scientists from the prestigious universities of Harvard, Cambridge ,London, Tufts and Boston showed that men and premenopausal women who consume the most Silicon of about 40 mg a day , had the highest bone mineral density , a measurement of bone health.
SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water contains around 35 mg of Silicon per litre .
Hence just by drinking your daily hydration requirement of at least 1.5 litre water , will provide you with at least 50 mg of silicon per day to boost your bone health as well. What a great deal !!!!
A new book , “ Neurotoxicity of Aluminium” published in Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology , Volume 1091; 2018, edited by Professor Qiao Niu from Department of Occupational Health , School of Public Health , Shanxi Medical University , Taiyuan , Shanxi, China , ( read abstract here ) is affirming the strong linked between aluminium neurotoxicity with cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) . Topics discussed includes:
(1) Overview of the Relationship between Aluminium Exposure and Health of the Human Being by Professor Qiao Niu
(2) The Chemistry of Human Exposure to Aluminium by Professor Chris Exley
(3) Entry and Deposit of Aluminium in the Brain ( Professor Linping Wang )
(4) Aluminium as a CNS and Immune System Toxin Across the Lifespan ( Professor Christopher Shaw)
(5) Occupational Exposure to Aluminium and Cognitive Impairment ( Professor Xiaoting Lu)
(6) Exposure to Aluminium in Daily Life and Alzhemer’s Disease ( Professor Jisheng Nie)
(7) Animal Model of Aluminium Induced Alzheimer’s Disease (Professor Jing Song)

(9) Aluminium-Induced Electrophysiological Variation , Synaptic Plasticity Impairment, and Related Mechanism. (Professor Zhang H )
(10) Cross Talk Between Aluminium and Genetic Susceptibility and Epigenetic Modification in Alzheimer’s Disease.(Professor Liang R)
Evidences of the ubiquitous Aluminium metal linked to brain heath especially Alzheimer’s Disease are so overwhelming that one have to take cognizance of this very serious threat to our health.
Have you ever wonder why after billions of dollars spent on finding the cause and cure for AD , scientists today are still getting nowhere and in fact , one of the largest drug company in the world, Pfizer announced that they are giving up on researching into AD.
Could it be that these scientists are all “barking up the wrong tree?”, could it be , it may just be the aluminium metal that may be the culprit . The discovery of Alzheimer’s Disease by Dr.Alois Alzheimer was in 1906 and around the same period in 1889 , commercial production of aluminium through the Bayer Process began . Is this such a coincidence or maybe there is link ?
Whatever your thoughts , new peer-reviewed evidences are emerging to unequivocally implicating aluminium to be a neurotoxin that are linked to several ailments such as Alzheimer’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, and Autism . See below for the references :
Aluminium Should Now Be Considered a Primary Etiological Factor in Alzheimer’s Disease .
Urinary Excretion of Aluminium and Silicon in Secondary Progressive Multiple Sclerosis.
Aluminium in Brain Tissue in Mulitple Sclerosis.
Aluminium in brain tissue in autism.
We must learn to live healthy in this “ Aluminum Age “ where aluminium is ubiquitous ie presence everywhere .
We can do this by minimising all products that contain aluminium whenever it is possible and also include a silicon rich natural mineral water daily for your hydration need . Clinical trials done in UK had shown that the trace mineral silicon is a very powerful antagonist to aluminium . When you drink a silicon rich natural mineral water , the water soluble silicon as Orthosilicic Acid (OSA) penetrate the body and removed the aluminium toxin and passed it out through the urine.
Four recent publications,
affirmed the anti-aging benefits of soluble silicon or OSA.
Only soluble silicon or the monomeric form as orthosilicic acid (OSA), the only form which is bioavailable and bioabsorbable by the body. Research has shown that silicon or OSA can stimulate enzymes such as prolyl hydroxylase to produce natural collagen and keratin. Collagen and Keratin are important ingredients of skin, hair and nails and it is not therefore surprising that silicon has been touted as an anti-aging, anti-weakness compound.
Hair with higher Silicon content tend to have lower falling rate and higher brightness.
SPRITZER -The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water was tested to contain therapeutic rich amount of soluble silicon (OSA) by two UK universities viz London and Keele.
So stay youthful by choosing silicon-rich natural mineral water for your hydration needs.
Two recent publications from Canada and USA, “Systemic Inflammation in C57BL/6J Mice Receiving Dietary Aluminum Sulfate; Up-Regulation of the Pro-Inflammatory Cytokines IL-6 and TNFa , C-Reactive Protein (CRP) and miRNA-146a in Blood Serum” published in J. Alzheimers Dis Parkinsonism 2017; 7(6): (view paper here) and “Selective Targeting and Accumulation of Aluminum in Tissues of C57BL/6J Mice Fed Aluminum Sulfate Activates a Pro-inflammatory Nf-kB-microRNA-146a Signaling Program” published in Journal of Neurology and Neuro Toxicology 2017 ; 1(1) 1-10 (view paper here).
Led by neuroscientist, Dr.Walter Lukiw, Professor of Neurology, Neuroscience and Ophthalmology from Louisiana State University, who had been studying into the possibility of aluminum toxicity leading to the onset, development and progression of Alzheimer’s Disease for 30 years. Their latest findings has for the first time showed that ALUMINUM CONSUMPTION FOUND IN HUMAN DIET may over the long term, predispose an individual to systemic inflammation of the brain which eventually leads to Alzheimer’s Disease.
Professor Lukiw gave 6 independent observations proving aluminum toxicity can lead to Alzheimer’s Disease:
Living in the “Aluminum Age” where aluminum is ubiquitous, present everywhere that we cannot avoid this neurotoxin in our daily living.
It is no wonder, many people have been tested with high level of aluminum in their brain.
But there is GOOD NEWS. Drinking a Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water daily can be very effective in removing the aluminum neurotoxin from the body. The University of London and Keele from England had tested Spritzer Natural Mineral Water to contain therapeutic amount of silicon and recent clinical trials performed in UK and published in peer-reviewed journals have confirmed this benefit.
So choose SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water for your hydration needs and enjoy the silicon benefits.
A new study just released “ Effect of Silicon-Rich Water Intake on the Systemic and Peritoneal Inflammation of Rats with Chronic Low Levels of Aluminum Ingestion “ published in Journal of Trace Elements in Medicine and Biology 46(2018) 96-102 (view paper here), showed that chronic ingestion of aluminum, which commonly present in our tap water and processed food increases bowel inflammation or toxicity. However, the presence of Silicon-Rich Water prevented the inflammation . The researchers from Russia thus concluded that Silicon-Rich Water can be an effective therapy against the immunotoxicity of aluminum.
Another group of scientists affirming the benefits of daily drinking of Silicon-Rich Natural Mineral Water. SPRITZER-The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water had been tested by two prestigious UK universities viz London and Keele to contain therapeutic amount of soluble silicon also known as orthosilicic acid.
Today we are living in what expert is calling “ The Aluminum Age” where aluminum is ubiquitous (present everywhere) , in our diet from tap water (used as purifier) , processed food (used as processing aids) to medicine and environmental smoke such as from cigarettes.
Below sources of Aluminum in our diet:
So our body are bombarded daily with this toxin and aluminum consumption has been implicated in over 30 ailments or diseases , the most damaging is Alzheimer’s Disease.
Recent testing of brain aluminum content found that nearly 80% of the people contained very high content of this neurotoxin.
So to minimize ones risk of accumulating aluminum in the body is to avoid as much as possible products associated with it , although this may be very challenging . The other very effective way is to drink everyday at least 1 litre of Silicon-Rich Mineral Water . After all we need to drink enough water for our hydration needs , why not choose SPRITZER the Silicon Rich Mineral Water , the water used in clinical research.
So take precaution for your brain with SPRITZER -The Silicon Rich Natural Mineral Water.
Added benefits from drinking silicon rich water is growing your collagen naturally . Silicon is an important ingredient needed to stimulate an enzyme that synthesise collagen in the body.
