Silicon is the third most abundant trace element in the human body, making it an important component affecting health and connective tissues, among other functions. Since silicon normalizes water’s electrochemical composition, the element is a crucial part of the human bone structure, brain and nervous system. University of California clinical trials demonstrate the beneficial effect of silicon on bone health. Moreover, this essential silicon nutrient acts as a magnet to absorb and neutralize bacteria, harmful organisms and pathogens making it central to the immune system. As per a study conducted by Keele University, silicon-rich mineral water can also prevent cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s patients by effectively removing aluminium from their bodies as aluminium buildup which is linked to Parkinson’s and Multiple Sclerosis. Among these benefits, silicon is also noted to treat digestive disorders, cardiovascular health and for a myriad of beauty uses including hair, nail quality and skin healing.The acquisition and development of this silicium water source and its commercialization in environmentally friendly packaging adds notable value to DWR’s strategic portfolio of assets with this freshwater reserve representing an estimated 0.7% of Quebec’s total volume under permit. DWR’s fresh spring water portfolio includes a variety of strategic assets. This silicium source being one of two specialized springs, positions DWR as an up and coming player in the water market.About Dominion Water Reserves Corp.DWR’s operations are based in Quebec, with its primary business being a consolidator of the water industry by acquiring fresh spring water permits and developing operations across Quebec with plans to expand across North America.
