The connective tissue of the skin is composed mostly of collagen and elastin. Collagen makes up 70-80% of the dry weight of the skin and gives the dermis its mechanical and structural integrity. Elastin is a minor component of the dermis that provides elasticity to the skin. During aging, the synthesis of collagen gradually declines, and the skin thus becomes thinner in protected skin, especially after the seventh decade.
A loss of connective tissue can impact the overall health of our skin, hair, nails, bones, and joints. Connective tissue is composed of cells that produce collagen and elastin.
Silicon is a binding essential element of this connective tissue. Silicon is an essential element that strengthens the collagen fibers and creates a stronger connective tissue.
Silicon production slowly declines during the course of our lives. Silicon levels in the blood start to decline around the age of 30.
Include foods that are rich in silicon to your diet, such as whole grains (oats, barley, brown rice), fruits (apples, oranges, grapes), vegetables (leafy greens, broccoli, cucumbers), and nuts (almonds, walnuts). Silicon is also present in drinking water, especially if it is derived from natural sources like mineral water or well water. Consuming a varied and balanced diet as well as drinking an appropriate amount of water can contribute to your silicon intake.
Orthosilicic acid is a chemical compound with formula Si(OH)4.
Orthosilicic Acid (OSA) is a bioavailable source of Silicium but has chemical stability problems. OSA tends to polymerize in solutions creating long polimeric chains compromising the bioavailability.
Stabilized Orthosilicic acid is most bioavailable form of Orthosilicic acid for human consumption.
Curesupport’s innovation team use a most stable, bioavailable form of Orthosilicic acid in a unique technology. Our OSA made using a mixture of glycerol and choline chloride. This help OSA to form most stable and bioavailable solution compared to ordinary OSA solution.
Silicon plays a crucial role in the cross-linking of collagen, providing a stronger connective tissue. Several clinical trials had shown that Silicon concentrations are close related to prolyl hydroxylase activity a crucial enzyme for Collagen Synthesis.
Remember, maintaining a balanced and varied diet, along with a healthy lifestyle, is key to overall well-being. Food supplements are not a substitute to varied diet. If you have specific concerns or conditions, it's always best to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice.
