The invaluable role of silicon in the human body has been studied in the last 40 – 50 years. It turns out that a sufficient level of silicon in the body improves assimilation of other elements: calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, sulphur, potassium, alluminium, sodium, etc. It has been established that deficiency in silicon leads to poor or zero assimilation by the body of 75 out of 100 elements. So, when the organism lacks silicon compounds taking much biological additives makes no sense.
This element is needed for maintain robust and elastic connecting tissue. This embraces joints, bones, ligaments, gristle, crystalline lens, skin, vessels, hair, nails, mucous membranes.
Elastic properties of skin, vascular walls, tendons are mostly contingent on silicon compounds they contain. Vascular walls deficient in silicon lose their elasticity. Along with that they are less capable to narrow and expand. Besides, the vascular walls start accumulating calcium salts that further deteriorate their elasticity.
The need for silicon grows with physical overwork, recuperation after injuries and bone fractures. Silicon deficiency is one of the reasons of premature aging. It covers many more essential functions. We have prepared additional brief about the role of silicon in the organism, what causes its deficiency and ways to recover it.
