Why Silicon?

The abundant mineral silicon is famous for more than computer chips. It is critical to healthy life to exist. Among it’s numerous jobs, silicon is part of the on-going health requirement for:

  • Healthy Joints
    • Silicon has been shown as an essential ingredient in the creation of articular cartilage.
    • Silicon is cross-linking agent which supports a network responsible for holding water in human joints.
  • Bone Health
    • Silicon manages different factors related to the mineralization of bones.
    • Silicon supports the production of the cells which form bones.
    • Silicon is responsible in part for the synthesis of collagen which is needed for flexibility.
  • Ligaments and Tendons
    • Collagen synthesis is a major element of tendon and ligaments which is decreased by the deficiency of silicon.
  • Heart Health 
    • Silicon makes the inner lining of arterial tissue less susceptible to puncture or breakdown.
  • Skin Health
    • Collagen which we discussed under bone health is also critical for making the skin appear young and firm.
  • Hair Health
    • The outer part of every hair, which provides strength and elasticity, is comprised of silicone. Without silicone, hair tends to be brittle and fall out more easily.
