How it works
The absorptive and binding capacity of a sponge – Silicic acid
Silicic acid behaves in much the same way if administered in high concentrations as microfine particles in liquid form. In this form it is highly active in terms of binding other substances.
No other substance is capacle of binding an amount of water equivalent to 300 times its own weight. For the human intestinal tract, the water binding capacity of silicic acid is its key advantage.
A positive water balance ensures that the cells are supplied with a sufficient amount of nutrients and helps maintain the elasticity of connective tissue and blood vessels. This reinforces the connective tissue, for silicic acid promotes a good water balance in the connective tissue and ensures a controlled supply of nutrients to the skin cells. It helps build up the connective tissue fibres collagen and elastin, thereby promoting firm skin and strong hair and nails.
This extraordinary binding capacity also applies to ichor, pathogens, and toxins. In disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, they are bound right on the spot and excreted by natural means.
Applied externally, silicic acid gel provides relief for skin irritations such as sunburn and minor injuries. A positive side effect is that the strong binding capacity prevents a further inflammation or skin irritation by natural physical means, i.e. by binding the ichor secreted from the injury.
