Silicon: properties, benefits, curiosities



What is silicon

Chemical symbol: Yes.

Il silicon it's a metalloids fragile blue-gray in color and metallic luster. Being an intrinsic semiconductor, the thermal and electrical conductivity depends on the temperature and the presence of impurities contained in the crystals of the mineral. 


It is the most abundant element on the earth's crust after oxygen, it is never found in the elementary state but combined mainly in the form of silica and silicates (in particular quartz and chalcedony), and enters the composition of a large number of igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary rocks.

Organic silicon made bioavailable in nature by plants such as horsetail is famous for its regenerating and remineralizing properties. It does not concentrate in any particular organ of the human body, but is mainly found within the tissues and connective organs.


Benefits and properties

Silicon stimulates the metabolism of football, promotes the formation of collagen and strengthens bones and connective tissues. Useful in case of demineralization, decalcification and osteoporosis. Prevents cell aging e improves the elasticity of blood vessels.

Indicated in the treatment of hypertension, of cardiovascular diseases andarteriosclerosis it also counteracts cerebral atony, loss of concentration and memory.

The silicon stimulates the immune system, reduces inflammatory states and is particularly useful in case of useful in case of cold. It favors the activity of lymph nodesand spleen and lungs. It has a control role against the toxic effects of aluminum and protects against Alzheimer's disease.

La shortage of silicon causes a delay in the growth and recomposition of bone fractures, atrophy of numerous organs, disorders of the skin, nails, hair, stretch marks and loss of elasticity of the tissues.

No toxic effects are known, except when inhaled. Silicon poisoning is known as silicosi, a respiratory disease characterized by excessive collagen production in the lungs.


Daily requirement of silicon

The daily requirement of silicon it is calculated between 20 and 50 mg. This quantity is generally taken with a simple daily diet.

Effects of silicon on the psyche and spirit

Silicon promotes inner well-being and relieves fatigue, the sense of insecurity e lafear. It makes the individual more stable and decisive and opens him up to new experiences. It focuses attention and helps to understand the current situation and to harmonize with oneself and with one's environment.


Method of use

A modern diet based on white bread, refined sugar, fruit and legumes consumed without peel, is poor in silicio. The total amount of silicon gradually decreases with age. According to oligotherapy, taking it in the form of a colloidal element allows the body to restore its balance, without deficiencies or excesses. Absorption of silicon is greater in the presence of calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese e boro.

In crystal therapy it is used to put minerals with a high silicon content in direct contact with the body, such as:

  • chalcedony,
  • rock crystal, 
  • obsidian,

to get the desired results.

Curiosities and historical notes

Silicon dioxide (or silica) is known to man as a mineral and used for the preparation of glass since ancient times, but it was considered an element only towards the beginning of the 1823th century, when in XNUMX JJ Berzelius prepared for the first turn elemental silicon by reduction of silicon tetrafluoride with potassium.
