Whilst silica is only found in trace amounts in the human body, it is present in almost every tissue and is essential for cell growth. It is especially concentrated in the hair, nails and connective tissues such as the skin. Whilst there is no RDA for silica, most nutritionists agree that a daily intake from our diet is important.
Silica contributes to the structure and resilience of connective tissue and appears to have an important role in the synthesis of bone and cartilage collagen.
