What is silica?
The English scientific name of Silicon Dioxide is Silicon Dioxide; the number is 7631-86-9 in CAS (International Chemical Abstract Magazine). Its common molecular formula is SiO2, the molecular weight is 60.08; the common density is d (amorphous) 2.2kg /m3; this compound is composed of O 53.26% and Si 46.75%. The relative molecular weight of Silica is 60.084. Silicon dioxide is a kind of inorganic substance; the chemical formula is SiO2; silicon atoms and oxygen atoms are long-range ordered to form crystalline silicon dioxide, short-range ordered or long-range disordered to form amorphous silicon dioxide. In a silicon dioxide crystal, the silicon atom is located at the centre of the tetrahedron, and the four oxygen atoms are located at the four top angles of the tetrahedron. Many such tetrahedrons are connected by the oxygen atoms at the top angles. Two tetrahedrons share each oxygen atom; each oxygen atom is combined with two silicon atoms.
Does silica do any good?
Are there any known benefits of silica/silicon obtained from food? It appears to be mostly neutral when consumed as a food additive, with little benefit other than giving food a better texture and shelf life. One reason is that Silica in food additives (SiO 2) limits intestinal absorption. That said, related products (such as diatomaceous earth) that offer more concentrated Silica do seem to have benefits. Some studies have shown that silicon is an essential mineral that helps strengthen bones, hair, nails and teeth. It may have anti-ageing effects and help prevent symptoms associated with silicon deficiency. Silicon has been shown to support bone building and have bone protective properties. According to a study published in the International Journal of Endocrinology, it may play a role in collagen formation. Some studies have shown that silicon helps improve bone density and flexibility and protects teeth.
Silica is more or less safe according to existing research
Eating healthy plant foods and herbs is the best way to get natural silicon. These include whole grains such as oats and rice, green leafy vegetables, mung beans, melons, cucumbers, artichokes, asparagus, dandelion, beer, herbs such as nettle leaves, horsetail, oat straw and rose hips (which can also be eaten in supplement and tea form). Evidence shows that a diet of about 40 mg of silicon daily may be associated with stronger bones. The FDA states that no more than 2 per cent of the total weight of the food can be added to the Silica. The Vitamin and Mineral Expert Group set the safe daily silicon intake at 12 mg/day per kg of body weight (for 60 kg adults). Consuming more Silica than usual is not necessarily dangerous, but studies cannot prove how much is safe.
Price of silica
Silica particle size and purity will affect the product's Price, and the purchase volume can also affect the cost of Silica. A large amount of large amount will be lower. The Price of Silica is on our company's official website.
