Silica is one of many natural mineral components such as calcium, magnesium, zinc, iron, etc. It is said to be "mineral of beauty". It is contained in rich soil, plants, water, etc. It can not be produced in the body. Also, as the amount of silica accumulated in the body decreases with age, it is necessary to always incorporate and maintain fresh silica. Such silica, it is collected only in the Kyushu region even in Japan, it can be said that the rarity is high. 72 mg / L, the highest level of silica content.
As "beauty minerals" now it is widely used in cosmetics, shampoos, supplements, concentrates, etc. It should be noted here that there are two major types of silicon, water soluble and crystalline. It is only water soluble silicon that has been confirmed to be safe. Crystals derived from minerals contained in health foods such as some supplements are considered genotoxic and increase the risk of carcinogenesis. For water-soluble silicon, safety has been confirmed by the Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare under the Food Sanitation Law.
Silicon has a wide range of effects in the beauty and medical industries. Beginning with collagen reinforcement, detoxification, allergy improvement, oral cleansing, blood flow improvement, detoxification of active oxygen, improvement of depression, preparation of ion balance • • • There are many advantages, but let me introduce some of the following.
Silica exists in the skin structure and in the hair much and plays a role of bundling collagen with each other. It not only gives elasticity to the skin but also fills the gaps in the skin structure and enhances water retention. In addition, it promotes not only the collagen itself but also the production of keratin as the main ingredient of the hair, so it gives elasticity and elasticity to the hair, improves thinning and gray hair. It is often included in cosmetics, supplements, shampoo and so on.
Silica removes and detoxifies reactive oxygen, it has antioxidant action, which leads to prevention of aging. It further promotes blood vessel circulation by promoting blood vessel formation and strengthening. It also has the function of decomposing lipid fat and detoxifying it with toxins and has the role of preparing the intestinal environment. Since the amount of silica accumulated in the body decreases year by year, ingestion every day leads to rejuvenation.
The Mueller muscle in the eyelid is said to be a delicate and tiring muscle. Silica has a function to suppress muscle fatigue, it has a function to soften the blood flow by smoothing the blood vessel, so it has the effect of reducing the edema of the eyelids. Silica ingredients are also contained in eye drops of famous pharmaceutical companies.
It is said that bone mineral density will increase when ingesting silica which is also one of bone components. I think that there are more people who consciously take calcium and vitamin D for prevention of osteoporosis. Silicon carries calcium in the blood and has the function of absorbing it in the bone. There is also a research presentation that silicon is more important than calcium in preventing osteoporosis since it does not absorb calcium in any amount if it is deficient.
