Organic silicon is an interesting contribution for the restructuring of connective tissue and the epidermis
Several publications have shown that a reduction in silicon leads to metabolic disruption. Indeed, organic silicon is your ally to fight ageing. Although acceleration of ageing is genetically programmed, its evolution can be influenced by different stimuli that can be fought or attenuated. These stimuli are either
- nutritional or
- external, leading to metabolic deviations.
Furthermore, a de-structuring of the connective tissue induces premature ageing.
The balance between vitality, health, beauty and their degradation is fragile. It depends on various elements, which act:
- as catalysts in enzymatic reactions
- at the cellular level, or
- as structural elements of the tissues.
For instance, their action is necessary for biological equilibrium.
Indeed, to be bio-available, organic silicon must remain in the form of a simple molecule, perfectly stable and assimilable. In fact, it can ideally be compared to the natural silicon present in the body and supplied by food.
Firstly, this organic silicon available in our body, is naturally present in human blood and extravascular fluids…
As, it is physiologically present and reactive.
Numerous research studies revealed that the silicon content in the skin decreases with aging. This happens mainly because its gastrointestinal absorption decreases. It is therefore recommended to supplement the diet with silicon, using a stable and assimilable silicic derivative (a silicon in organic form for example).
A nutritional intake of organic silicon can complement the daily dietary intake of silicon. As a result, it contributes to the restructuring of the connective tissue, having a preventive action against ageing. For a weight of 60kg, the appropriate dose, easily assimilated, is 1 mg of silicon per day, also equivalent to 3 mg of silicic acid.
Secondly, silicon in the form of assimilable ortho-silicic acid, is capable of influencing the ageing process by 2 ways:
- fighting against connective tissue disturbance and restructuring damaged connective tissue
- providing collagen or elastin structure.
In this way, a low content of silicon in the body induces a destructuring of the connective tissue, so a denaturation of the collagen and elastin fibers. Indeed, organic silicon is a structural element of the connective tissue, where it is present in large quantities, such as skin. It is necessary for the formation of collagen and elastin and prevents their breakdown. It therefore has a repairing and regenerative activity, in the processes of skin and arterial ageing.
