Can Distilled Water Decrease the Chances of Developing Alzheimer’s?
Can you imagine how disorientating it would be to no longer recognise the street you live on? Or your family and friends? Or how frightening it would be to struggle to remember who you are or where you’re from? Struggling with your memory, your ability to think, and the traits and characteristics that make up your personality feels like a tragedy. Losing those aspects that make you ‘you’ is arguably a person’s greatest fear. Sadly, all over the UK, people are suffering with the symptoms.
Alzheimer’s disease affects an estimated 850,000 people in the UK. A type of dementia, Alzheimer’s affects multiple brain functions including memory, thought process and behaviour. Over time, the symptoms gradually worsen, making daily tasks and living a normal life incredibly difficult.
There are many different reasons an adult might develop Alzheimer’s and there is no known cure for this degenerative disease. However, scientists are regularly finding evidence to suggest that a water detox with distilled water can help to ease the symptoms and stave off the development of Alzheimer’s.
Copper in tap water: Can tap water increase the risk of Alzheimer’s disease?
Amongst many other chemicals and inorganic minerals, tap water contains trace levels of copper. In recent research, scientists have discovered that when copper is combined with cholesterol, it may prevent the brain from removing protein, which in turn produces a brain-clogging plaque associated with Alzheimer’s.
In an experiment using rabbits who were fed a high-cholesterol diet, two US scientists began to notice that the rabbits who also drank tap water with high traces of copper developed significantly more plaques than those that drank purified, distilled water. These rabbits were also less capable of completing difficult conditioning tasks than those drinking distilled water. The research concluded that ingesting traces of copper in tap water inhibits the removal of cholesterol on the brain, which may be a contributing factor in the development of Alzheimer’s.
Water detox and distilled water
In the experiment with the rabbits, scientists monitored not only the dangers of drinking copper containing tap water, but also the benefits of drinking distilled water. The rabbits who drank only distilled water performed better on all tasks and developed less plaque on the brain. The conclusion was clear: distilled water could provide a non-toxic method for decreasing the incidence of Alzheimer’s disease.
By drinking pure distilled water, you can help to boost your neuron activity and improve the cellular chemistry in your brain. If you consider that the brain is made up of over 80% water, it becomes clear that staying hydrated with pure water, free from harmful toxins and minerals, is key to maintaining brain functionality. For example, did you know that when you are dehydrated, your brain actually shrinks? From general health improvement to fighting serious conditions like Alzheimer’s, distilled water is an incredible, yet often overlooked benefit.
