You already know that drinking water is essential to feeling your absolute best (Need a refresher? Click here for six compelling reasons to drink up). But sipping on mineral water has an added brain-boosting benefit. According to a recent study published in theJournal of Alzheimer's Disease, drinking silicon-rich mineral water can help facilitate the removal of aluminum, a known neurotixin, from the body. What's more, for individuals with Alzheimer's, drinking one liter of mineral water daily for 12 weeks not only reduced the body burden of aluminum, it also improved cognitive performance.
Your action plan: Try swapping one liter of regular H20 for one liter of silicon-rich (30mg per liter is ideal) mineral water a few days a week (or every day if you can!). Check the label of your favorite brand to make sure it delivers a healthy dose of silicon (Volvic and Fiji water are both solid choices).
