Silic Acid and Aluminum

Silicic acid in health

Continuing research of the correlation of aluminium and Alzheimer’s disease has in the last few years included the use of silicic acid in beverages,[10][11][12] due to its abilities to both reduce aluminium uptake in the digestive system as well as cause renal excretion of aluminium.

Study has shown that physiological concentration of orthosilicic acid stimulates collagen type 1 synthesis and osteoblastic differentiation in human osteoblast-like cells in vitro.[13]

Choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid is a bioavailable nutritional supplement. It has been shown to prevent the loss of hair tensile strength,[14] have positive effect on skin surface and skin mechanical properties, and on brittleness of hair and nails,[15] abate brittle nail syndrome,[16] partially prevent femoral bone loss in the aged ovariectomized rat model,[17] increase collagen concentration in calves,[18] and have potential beneficial effect on bone collagen formation in osteopenic females.[19]
