Silicon - in the form of silica (silicon dioxide) - is a common ingredient in beauty products and supplements for skin, hair and nails. Silicon contributes to:
Silicon is also an important component of collagen and elastin, two proteins in the body. Collagen holds together the tissues of the body and elastin contributes to a more firm skin!
Silicon is also found in the protein keratin, which is the protein that is the main building block of the hair. Silicon is transported through the blood to the hair follicles where the hair is formed, increasing the nutrient supply and contributing to a hair that is more shiny and with more volume.
Collagen contains silicon, and silicon is therefore important for optimal collagen formation. Silicon found in, for example, skin, hair, nails, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, blood vessels and connective tissue, provides both strength and stability to these tissues.
Silicon dioxide (SiO2) is a natural compound made of: silicon (Si) and oxygen (O2). It is for example found naturally in water, plants and animals.
Chemically, silica is the oxide form of silicon. This means silica is silicon with an oxygen molecule attached to it via covalent bonding. Therefore, silica is often called silicon dioxide and then shortened to silicon. In comparison, silicon is not a molecule, rather an atom.
Silicon dioxide is a trace element / trace element and is the second most abundant element on earth after oxygen, and in the human body the third most abundant trace element (1). Silicon dioxide is a semi-metallic element with the atomic number 14 and the chemical sign Si.
Silicon dioxide is a mineral that is often overlooked, but silicon dioxide is actually the basis of life.
Silicon is needed to keep many of the body's tissues and organs in good condition!
