Silicium is an essential trace element for connective tissue formation. In instances of insufficient Silicium in our diet, connective tissues slacken, bones, hair and nails become increasingly brittle, and our blood vessels harden, making us appear older internally as well as externally.
Benefits of Silicium
- Silicium nourishes the bone system and helps decrease the risks of osteoporosis by promoting a better calcium intake. It is essential to use in cases of fractures, given its capacity to increase the healing process. (Randoin);
- It also fortifies hair and nails. Healthy nails consist of 19% Silicium. Brittle nails have lost between 30 to 50% of their Silicium content;
- Furthermore, it hydrates and tones the skin. Silicium is the ideal “anti-ageing, skin nourishing treatment”;
- It helps promote regeneration of the skin and is highly recommended for skin and gum afflictions as well as for injuries, following surgery, etc.
- It promotes blood vessel elasticity, hence preventing varicose veins and arteriosclerosis;
- It is as essential as calcium for pregnant women and children’s growth spurts;
- It also has anti-inflammatory properties, notable for athletes and those suffering from skeletal and muscular disorders such as sciatica, bursitis and tendonitis.
Our predominantly refined food diet does not meet our Silicium requirements, and this is why it should be taken as a supplement.
