A GRANDMOTHER from Hove has launched a new business line with a special bottled water from Malaysia available in Brighton.

The water comes from a Malaysian rain forest and is called Acilis by Spritzer.

This comes as scientists are using the water in research into Alzheimer’s disease.

The water is being retrieved from beneath the tropical forest and contains high levels of silica also known as silicon dioxide.

Mother-of-two Wendy Latham said: “Since there is no cure for Alzheimer’s, when I heard about the scientists’ discoveries, we decided to take the initiative to obtain Acilis water from Malaysia so that people in the UK could try it for themselves.”

The name of the product is actually silica spelled backwards.

The water is more natural and abundant and not synthetically produced which differs it from many other brands of bottled water. Most bottles do not contain any silica at all.

The considerable effect of silica on human health has attracted the attention of many scientists led by Professor Christopher Exley, a world authority on aluminium and its connection with silicon at Keele University in Staffordshire.

He has proven that the water has the power to remove the neurotoxicity of aluminium from humans to improve their health.

Prof. Exley is currently planning several clinical tests to research whether removing neurotoxic aluminium could be a precaution for not only Alzheimer’s but also other neural disorders including Parkinson’s and autism.

His research consists of people drinking about a litre of Acilis a day to measure the effects and possibly observe a decrease in aluminium.

Mrs Latham also set up a website to distribute the water through an online sales platform, she said: “We will be donating 10 per cent of sales of Acilis towards further Keele research.”

Acilis is now available online through SilicaWaters.com at the price of 55p per bottle and will soon be introduced in High Street stores in Brighton.
