Silicon conducts electrically charged particles. It attracts and gives off. In a healthy body it transports potassium, calcium and sodium. In the stressed body, its properties have a fantastic different effect. Silicon absorbs pollutants, environmental toxins, plastic microparticles and plasticizers. They are excreted through the intestinal metabolism. Nothing better can happen to a damaged organism. However, deficiencies that are almost unavoidable are a threat to health. Sufficient intake with food alone is seriously endangered by industrial processing. With increasing age, less is absorbed and more is needed. The salvation: ultra-fine silicon particles are particularly effective.
