Silicon

Silicon

Food sources include lettuce, apples, oranges, unrefined grains and cereals, almonds, raw cabbage, peanuts, carrots, pumpkin, parsnips, asparagus, rice bran, horseradish, onion, spinach, cucumbers and beer.

Silicon is an essential element in biology, although only a very small amount of it appears to be required by humans. Although known largely for its role in the manufacture of electronics, it is the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust.

Studies have shown that silicon plays an essential role in the formation and repair of bones and joints. It is also thought to be important in both preventing the onset and in slowing the progression of bone related illness such as osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Sometimes called the ‘beauty mineral’, Silicon is also important in strengthening connective tissues and improving the strength and thickness of nails, hair and skin. It also functions to increase the effectiveness of Vitamin D, glucosamine and calcium.
