Why is silicon so important?
The amount of organic silicon in humans diminishes during the ageing process, in an irreversible way, particularly after the age of 40. One of the first noticeable signs of a shortage of organic silicon is arterial problems. This is the case for hundreds of thousands of people across the world. The main cause is a chronic deficit of organic silicon in our food.
Organic silicon is an essential element of the living organism, which can be of animal or vegetable origin. It has been proven that organic silicon, a physiological element of blood and tissue, is essential to the absorption of calcium, phosphorus and magnesium and the production of vitamin D.
The human body is not capable of converting mineral silicon, which has been taken in, into organic silicon.
Where do we find Silicon ?
We have all been exposed to silicon in the soluble silicic acid form throughout the evolutionary process. Scientific studies have shown that this form of silicon is most readily absorbed into the human body and utilised by human cells.
Green beans and cereal products are particularly high sources of silicon and the body has found ways to digest this silicon into soluble forms allowing much of it to be absorbed.
Many changes to the modern diet probably mean that silicon is not as common in the diet as it once was. The purification of tap water, refined processing of cereals and high intensity agriculture are some examples of where silicon can be lost in the diet. Despite this, our average intake of silicon in Europe is probably around 20 – 30 mg/day.
Silicon has also long been thought of as one of those vital elements for well-being. Scientific papers have for years confirmed the beneficial results of taking it. Like other things that nature provides it has not been well publicised, even though taking silicon for dietary reasons is essential for normal growth.
Tissues in the heart, blood vessels, bone, joints, skin, hair and nails containing collagen require silicon for normal development and function. Silicon also provides benefits to maintain healthy arteries and the prevention of cholesterol plaque build up.
The consumption of organic silicon have been shown to increase hip bone density in female patients of older years who suffer with osteoporosis. But it's not just something to take when getting older. Younger adults, both women and men also respond well to taking high amounts of silicon to increase bone mineral density. It has an important role relating to brain function and ability of silicon to bind to aluminium and neutralise its toxicity. As high levels of aluminium build up in the body have been linked to Alzheimer's and Dementia, could this simple element when taken regularly be a solution to helping with these problems?
