Health Topic Section
Silicon is an essential trace element in the human body derived predominantly from the diet. Silica is an oxide form of the element silicon. Silicon is important for the proper growth and development of bone and connective tissues and is found in highest concentrations in cartilage, blood vessels, tendons, dental enamel, bone, hair and skin. Silicon is also important for stimulating the formation of collagen. In animal studies, silicon-deficient diets resulted in retarded growth, poor bone development, and more atherosclerotic arterial plaques. Low dietary silica levels are also tied to increase aluminum levels in body tissues.
The horsetail plant (Equisetum arvense) contains the highest concentration of silicon found in the plant world. Horsetail has been used in traditional medicine for thousands of years as a wound and bone healer, coagulant, diuretic, astringent, and for kidney and bladder ailments.
