It has other important qualities too. All tendons and cartilage, blood vessels, skin and bones contain silicon. Without it, teeth become weak as the enamel becomes spongy and open to decay and bones become soft. The skin will sag and varicose veins will spring up. Silicon is essential for the formation of healthy strong collagen, the ‘elastic’ that holds us taught!
It also helps negate the effects of mercury in the body brought about through mercury fillings, pesticides, fish and even chimney smoke, and helps to safely excrete it. It is also essential for anyone burning the candle at both ends or working themselves to the bone.
