Silicon is a trace element found in most tissue types of the human body. It is not only a structural component of connective tissue, skin, hair, nails and articular cartilage, but is also required for a variety of important body processes.
Silicon is needed for the development and maintenance of healthy bones, joints, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels, nails, hair and skin. It is also vital for cell regeneration, an optimal functioning of the immune system and a good cardiovascular health. There is even evidence that silicon may play a role in lipid metabolism (1)
Since your body cannot produce silicon itself, it must be supplied through food or in the form of supplements. Even so your body may only need between 5 and 40 mg of silicon per day, a much higher daily intake is necessary because silicon is very poorly absorbed by your body. Organic silicon compounds seem to be clearly superior to inorganic silicon sources, which is why we use a natural bamboo extract that contains large amounts of organic silicon compounds.
Although the human body only needs small amounts of silicon, a silicon deficiency seems to be more widespread than one would think. There are experts who go as far as to say that about 80% of the world's population may suffer from a silicon deficiency.
This is not only due to the already mentioned poor absorption of silicon, which worsens with age, but is also a consequence of the ever decreasing amounts of silicon found in our food. On the one hand, this is due to the fact that agricultural soils are becoming increasingly poorer in minerals as a result of industrial agriculture and, on the other hand, due to the strong processing of our food. A good example for this is highly processed white flour, which contains only 2% of the silicon naturally found in cereals.
First signs of a silicon deficiency include hair loss, brittle nails, cracked skin, itching and dandruff. A prolonged silicon deficiency can lead to faster skin aging, osteoporosis, impaired immune function and premature tissue aging, as well as ailments such as arteriosclerosis, joint pain and cardiovascular diseases.
