SANCHEZ-MUNIZ, Francisco José et al. When silicon transmutes in gold. JONNPR [online]. 2020, vol.5, n.2, pp.202-211.  Epub Sep 14, 2020. ISSN 2529-850X.

This article describes the virtues of a research focused on silicon, one of the most important but least known ingredients in beer, and its protective action at the neurodegenerative level. Among the various factors contributing to the Alzheimer's disease induction and development, aluminum, by concentrating in brain induces, among other mechanisms, pro-oxidant and inflammatory disorders. Silicon, by blocking these negative effects, becomes a star ingredient, which in alchemist terms suggests that has the property to transmute into gold.

Keywords : Alzheimer’s disease; Inflammation; Neurodegeneration; Oxidation; Silicon.
