    Autopsies performed on persons who have died of Alzheimer's disease have revealed accumulation of up to 4 times the normal amount of aluminum in the nerve cells in the brain. Especially high concentrations of aluminum have been found in the region of the hippocampus, which plays a role in memory.

    British researchers concluded that the risk of contracting Alzheimer's disease was 50 percent higher in regions of Great Britain where drinking water contained elevated levels of aluminum. The threat from aluminum may be increased by chronic calcium deficiency, which may change the way in which the body uses minerals and result in greater accumulations of aluminum.

    While the British populations must contend with the threat of aluminum-tainted water, Americans can ingest aluminum through a wide variety of products. While there is still a great deal of controversy as to whether the accumulation of aluminum in the neurons is the cause or a result of neuronal dysfunction, it is believed that it is best to avoid aluminum as much as possible as a preventive measure. The following guideline will assist you in the elimination of as many potentially hazardous aluminum products as possible from your kitchen and from your medicine cabinet. It is better to be safe than sorry.

    MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Aluminum Toxicity



    Aluminum cookware contributes significantly to the amount of aluminum in the diet. Using aluminum pots to cook tomatoes doubled the aluminum content of those tomatoes, from 2 milligrams to 4 milligrams per serving.

    Aluminum cooking utensils and pots should be replaced with stainless steel or glass cooking ware.

    Aluminum foil use should be kept to a minimum or not at all.



    Several dozen antacids contain aluminum hydroxide, an aluminum salt. Included in this list are such nationally advertised products as:
    • Di-Gel liquid
    • Gaviscon tablets
    • Gelusil liquid
    • Gelusil tablets
    • Extra strength Maalox
    • Mylanta & Mylanta Double Strength liquid & tablets
    • Tempo Soft Antacid

    Concentrations of aluminum vary. If you use antacids, always read product labels carefully. Antacids that contain aluminum must state this in their list of ingredients. There are more than 20 aluminum-free antacid compounds available, including:
    • Alka-Seltzer
    • Alka-Mints
    • Di-Gel tablets
    • Maalox caplets
    • Mylanta gelcaps
    • Rolaids tablets
    • Titralac
    • Tums E-X



    More than a dozen non-prescription anti-diarrheal drugs contain aluminum salts in doses of 100 mg/ml to 600 mg per tablet, these include:
    • Kaolin
    • Aluminum magnesium silicate
    • Attaulgite

    Familiar preparations containing these substances include:
    • Donnagel
    • Kaopectate
    • Pepto-Bismol liquid
    • Rheaban

    Products containing the newer anti-diarrheal loperamide (Imodium AD and others) do not usually contain aluminum.



    With concentrations of 14.4 mg to 88 mg per dose, buffered aspirin can be a source of aluminum. One of the two compounds, aluminum hydroxide or aluminum glycinate, is found in brands such as:
    • Arthritis Pain Formula
    • Arthritis Strength Bufferin
    • Ascriptin
    • Bufferin
    • Cope
    • Vanquish

    Ordinary aspirin is aluminum-free as are many other pain killers.


    Aluminum-coated waxed containers, used especially for orange and pineapple juices, cause juices inside to absorb aluminum.

    Beer and soft drinks stored in aluminum cans absorb small quantities of the metal as well.

    Bottled beverages in glass or plastic are a better choice.


    Many deodorants and antiperspirants and some skin powders contain aluminum chlorohydrate. Aluminum in this form is readily absorbed into the brain through the nasal passages.


    Many popular douche preparations contain aluminum salts. These include such nationally known and advertised products Massengil powder. Research has not yet shown how much of these solutions the body absorbs. A homemade solution of apple cider vinegar and water can be substituted for the over-the-counter products.

    Routine douching is not necessary for personal hygiene. Douching is best reserved for therapeutic purposes, as excessive douching may actually help promote infection. If you do use douches from time to time, it is better to use a solution of 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar in a quart of water rather than commercial preparations.


    Manufacturers add aluminum to many of the food products Americans eat every day. Cake mixes, frozen dough, self-rising flour, and sliced processed cheese food all contain from 5 to 50 mg of sodium aluminum phosphate per average serving. Baking powder contains from 5 to 70 mg of sodium aluminum sulfate per teaspoonful. Varying amounts of other aluminum compounds are contained in food starch modifiers and anti-caking agents. Pickling salts can contain one of two aluminum compounds: aluminum ammonium sulfate or aluminum potassium sulfate. If you eat fast foods, you should be aware that the processed cheeses used on cheese-burgers contain aluminum, which is added to give the cheese product its melting quality.


    A number of anti-dandruff preparations, such as Selsun Blue, contain magnesium aluminum silicate. Aluminum lauryl sulfate is a common ingredient in many nationally advertised shampoos. As with other products, always read the label before you buy.

    You can reduce your brain load of aluminum yourself by using the following supplements, also shown to significantly lower brain aluminum.

  • Magnesum Citramate Magnesium reduces brain levels of mercury and the citramate, a combination of citrate and malate, has been shown to significantly stimulate elimination of aluminum from the body.
  • Ascorbate (as magnesium or Calcium Ascorbate). A study found ascorbate to be a very effective chelator of aluminum, especially when the aluminum was bound to brain cell DNA. Taking higher doses of ascorbate with the Magnesum Citramate increased the removal of aluminum even more.
  • Malate. Malate was shown to be one of the more effective aluminum chelators for the brain.
  • Pyruvate (as Calcium Pyruvate). Pyruvate has been shown to effectively prevent aluminum absorption.
  • Flavonoids. Eat a lot of fresh vegetables. Supplements containing flavonoids, such as Quercetin and Hesperidin, also prevent aluminum absorption.
  • Chlorella helps remove mercury and lead and may remove aluminum. These supplements are in addition to the antioxidant vitamins you normally take.
  • Eat a diet that is high in Fiber and includes Apple Pectin.
  • Use only stainless steel, glass, or iron cookware. Stainless steel is best.
  • Beware of products containing aluminum. Read labels and avoid those that contain aluminum, or dihydroaluminum. See MoonDragon's Health & Wellness: Aluminum & Alzheimer's Connection for more suggestions.

  • Most individuals with Alzheimer's disease have low levels of Vitamin C, and the Beta Carotene, Vitamin B-1, Vitamin B-6, Folate and Vitamin B-12. The latter three are particularly important, since they regulate a special series of metabolic steps in brain cells necessary for forming neurotransmitter chemicals and repairing DNA. When these nutrients are deficient, a special chemical called homocysteine accumulates.

    Recent studies have found that a large number of Alzheimer's disease patients have elevated homocysteine levels. Besides being a sign of impaired metabolism, homocysteine is in a class of special brain cell toxins called excitotoxins. These toxins literally excite certain brain cells to death. They are considered a central mechanism in all of the neurodegenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer's dementia and Parkinson's disease. Excitotoxins generate large numbers of free radicals in brain cells and brain cell connections (synapses). Vitamin E and Vitamin C, and the Carotenoids and special antioxidants from plants called flavonoids all act together to protect the brain from free radicals and, hence, excitotoxicity.

    Several studies have shown that increasing these Antioxidants in the diet slows the course of Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease and may prevent the disease in some cells we see destroyed in Alzheimer's disease.

    Numerous studies have shown that chronic activation of the brainís immune system is closely connected to this terrifying disorder. Many of these studies also have shown that the greatest risk is among those with impaired immunity. We know that as we age, the immune system becomes impaired, primarily because of poor nutrition. In fact, several studies have shown that aged-related immune problems can be corrected with nutrients such as Selenium, Vitamin E and Vitamin C, and the Carotenoids. Of even greater importance is the finding that Vitamin D-3 plays a major role in preventing overreaction of the immune system, as seen in these diseases. While part of the immune system is impaired, another part is overactive. This imbalance causes the problem. Nutrition can re-establish the proper immune balance.


  • Watch Your Diet: Most important is your diet. You should eat low-fat foods, at least five servings of fruits and vegetables (primarily vegetables) and no more than a slice of whole grain bread a day, along with a minimum of high-glycemic carbohydrates, and drink filtered fluoride-free water. Carbohydrates are classified as to how fast they are absorbed and converted to simple sugars. Those easily converted and absorbed are considered high-glycemic; others are called low-glycemic carbohydrates. The best diet is the Mediterranean diet, which is higher in protein (mainly fish), high in vegetables and extra virgin Olive Oil, and low in carbohydrates.

  • Seafoods can be high in mercury (methylmercury), so caution must be exercised. It is best to get your Omega-3 Oils from supplements. Omega-3 oils are composed of two components, EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid). DHA is the most important for protecting and nurturing the brain. In one study, those who consumed omega-3 fatty acidĖcontaining foods once a week or more had a 60 percent reduction in Alzheimerís disease. Interestingly, DHA has been shown to powerfully protect the brain from excitotoxins. The EPA component had little effect. Pure DHA can be obtained from most health supplement suppliers. Another source of omega-3 fatty acids is from special eggs that contain high amounts of this beneficial fat. The highest contents are found in Christopher Eggs. The chickens producing these eggs are fed a special diet high in omega-3 fatty acids, which then enters the egg yolks. A single egg supplies 600 mg of omega-3 fatty acids.

  • Fruits and especially vegetables contain some of the most powerful chemical antioxidants found naturally. They also contain powerful anti-excitotoxic, anti-inflammatory, immune-modulating and antiviral components as well. Eating at least five servings of vegetables a day also plays a major role in preventing these neurodegenerative diseases. A recent study found that of 1,367 people over age 65 followed for five years, those with the highest intake of flavonoids from fruits and vegetables had a 51 percent lower incidence of Alzheimer's disease.

  • Of particular interest has been Blueberry extract. In one study, it was found not only to slow the aging of the brain but also to reverse some of the aging changes. A more recent study found that blueberry extract could completely prevent Alzheimer's disease in a hereditary animal model of the disease. This means that blueberry extract might prevent the disease even in those inheriting both of the APOE4 genes. It is important to appreciate that these experiments were done using blueberry extracts and not whole blueberries. The extracts contain much higher concentrations of the blueberry flavonoids than found in a bowl of blueberries.

  • One of the hottest areas of research has been brain protection through caloric reduction by fasting. It has been known for almost half a century that animals placed on low-calorie diets live significantly longer than those on regular or, especially, high-calorie diets. As we have seen, high-calorie intake is especially harmful to the brain. Previously, it was assumed that reducing calories reduces the number of free radicals produced by cells, which it does. Research found that it greatly increased the concentration of two brain-protecting chemicals called nerve growth factor and telomerase. These two chemicals can protect the brainís cells against the beta-amyloid of Alzheimer's disease, strengthen synapses and protect against excitotoxicity. In other words, they can protect against all the processes seen in Alzheimer's disease. The best results were found with fasting one day a week. Weekly fasting also helped correct insulin excess, something also connected with these diseases.

  • Take Antioxidants. While you should increase your intake of all of the antioxidant vitamins, including Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin K, Carotenoids and all the B Vitamins, you also should supplement with additional Antioxidants. Some of the more powerful are the Flavonoids, special components isolated from plants. These include Hesperidin, Quercetin, Green Tea extract, Artichoke extract, Grape Seed extract and Bilberry, all available from natural supplement suppliers.

  • One supplement found to provide major protection to the brain is Melatonin. Most people think of it as nothing more than a sleep aid. In fact, it is one of the brainís most important antioxidants and actually increases the antioxidant enzyme content of the brain. This is especially important because recent studies have shown that these antioxidant enzymes are low in people who develop Alzheimer's dementia and Parkinson's disease. With aging, the amount of melatonin begins to decline, one of the reasons for the high frequency of insomnia in the elderly. If you notice you no longer dream, your melatonin levels are probably low. Low levels are rarely seen below age 45.

  • All cells contain a very powerful antioxidant called Glutathione. It is especially important for protecting the brain, especially against excitotoxicity and mercury poisoning. Low levels of this antioxidant are seen in all cases of neurodegenerative disease, including Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. Ironically, it is fairly easy to increase the levels of glutathione in all your cells.

  • The supplement N-acetyl-L cysteine (NAC) has been shown to dramatically increase Glutathione levels. Magnesium, Vitamin C, Alpha-Lipoic Acid and a high intake of vegetables also increase glutathione levels. An additional benefit is that high glutathione levels also help prevent cancer. A high intake of MSG and other excitotoxins dramatically lowers brain glutathione levels.


    Unless otherwise specified, the dosages recommended here are for adults. For a child between ages 12 and 17, reduce the dose to 3/4 the recommended amount. For a child between 6 and 12, use 1/2 the recommended dose.

  • Nutrition Basics: Magnesium Supplement Information


    Magnesium is a mineral that is critical for energy production and metabolism, muscle contraction, nerve impulse transmission and bone mineralization. It is required cofactor for an estimated 300 enzymes. Among the reactions catalyzed by these enzymes are fatty acid synthesis, protein synthesis and glucose metabolism. Malate is an important Krebs Cycle intermediate, indicating that it is an important molecule in the production of cellular energy derived from carbohydrates. Malic Acid is a fruit acid and is the principal acid contained in apples and many other fruits and vegetables. Its ability to bond with alkaline minerals such as calcium and magnesium may help to improve the absorption of these important nutrients. It supports energy production by allowing your body to produce ATP more efficiently, which is essential for proper muscle function. Leading healthcare professionals familiar with Fibromyalgia recommend Malic Acid, combined with Magnesium, for the chronic muscle soreness and fatigue experienced by most patients with this condition. Healthcare providers have found that patients with Fibromyalgia who use a combination of Malic Acid and Magnesium reported improvements in the reduction of muscle pain and tiredness. Malic Magnesium is a specialized formula that provides nutritional support for energy metabolism and muscle function, featuring chelated magnesium, malic acid, and select B vitamins.
