Its effects on the body are almost miraculous, this mineral is one of the most effective remedy known for regeneration and rejuvenation. Recent studies show that organic silica could be one of the secrets of health and youth, it is effective in treating an impressive number of diseases.
Although it is often deficient in our body because it does not have the capacity to assimilate other forms of silica. However, organic silica is increasingly hard to find in refined food. This explain why conditions such as hypertension, atherosclerosis, osteoporosis, psoriasis and autoimmune diseases are so prevalent in the contemporary world. For all these diseases, and many others, are associated with a deficiency of this trace element.
The role of silica in the human body
First, silica is one of the basic elements in building our body. All elastic tissue contained in bones, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels consist of a real matrix of silica, which are fixed. Once a bone is broken, the skin was cut or burned, or a blood vessel wall was damaged, silica is one of the key factors in their reconstruction. Then, youthful skin, nails and hair beauty, tooth enamel health are increasingly determined by the presence of the silica, which is essential for uptake and fixation of magnesium and calcium in the body, connective tissue and formation.
Last but not least, this trace element has an essential role in the immune system, forming a significant part of the army of cells with defense role, and coordination of this army is dependent on the presence of silica.
However, the most alarming discovery about the role of silica in the body is that as we age, the trace element concentration decreases. In people with an unhealthy lifestyle, the concentration of silica in the body decreases with high speed and with the loss of silica, the body decays at a proportional rate. Research shows that those who have suffered a stroke, the concentration of silica from broken blood vessel walls is 14 times lower than that of a healthy blood vessel.
Silica concentration in muscle tissue of a sedentary and premature aging person is up to 30% lower than that of a physically active person. In osteoporosis, bone calcium concentration falls by only 5-10%, while silica decreases with not less than 50%. One of the researchers that have studied for decades the role of this trace element in biological processes said that silica is in the human body, a sort of sand in the hourglass of life, and as the sand drains, the strength, youth and vitality of our body drain.
The good news is that the process is reversible. We can regain our youth and vital energy by additional intake of silica.
The difference between organic silica and other silica types
Until recently, medical textbooks talked almost exclusively about the harmful effects of silica, which inhaled in the form of powders, produce silicosis, a chronic lung disease, specific in miners. Indeed, simple silica in various mineral layers of the Earth’s crust, can be extremely harmful when inspired.
Internally, in the best case, has no health effects. Only organic silica, which is related to hydrogen and carbon in the natural processes of bacteria carried in the body or plants, can be assimilated by the body, with beneficial effects.
Scientists studied dozens of years to learn how to transform the mineral silica in organic silica. They found that only very few bacteria, some algae and some lower plants are able to absorb silica in the soil, all other organisms are dependent on their ability to metabolize this mineral. Unfortunately, contemporary food, due to agriculture and chemicalization contains very little organic silica, which deeply harms our balanced and healthy body, as we shall see.
Risks of silica deficiency
The human body is genetically programmed to be well supplied with organic silica in a sufficient amount – about 20 mg per day for adults, increasing the necessary amount as we age. Depriving the body of this trace element lead, over time, to the emergence of disorders and diseases. The first symptom, when silica is deficient in the body, is an inability to absorb calcium, phosphorus and magnesium. Then, the first who suffers is the skin which becomes dry, prematurely ages and loses its elasticity, and is affected by diseases such as psoriasis, acne and allergic eczema.
