Therapeutic Effects of Ortho-Silicic Acid - Medscape, 5/23/13 -
"In conclusion, we believe that ortho-silicic acid
(H4SiO4) might be a prominent therapeutic agent in humans. Some potential
therapeutic and biological effects on bone formation and bone density,
Alzheimer disease, immunodeficiency, skin, hair, and nails condition, as
well as on tumour growth, have already been documented and are critically
discussed in the presented paper" - See

my coffee everyday.
is a rich source of silicon and may help prevent osteoporosis - Science
Daily, 2/8/10 - "Silicon is present in beer in the
soluble form of orthosilicic acid (OSA), which yields 50% bioavailability,
making beer a major contributor to silicon intake in the Western diet.
According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), dietary silicon (Si),
as soluble OSA, may be important for the growth and development of bone and
connective tissue, and beer appears to be a major contributor to Si intake.
Based on these findings, some studies suggest moderate beer consumption may
a disease of the skeletal system characterized by low bone mass and
deterioration of bone tissue" - See

(it says "Reduces Fine Lines and Wrinkles by 19%"). I put ten drops of it
in my coffee every morning.
Moderate beer intake may cut Alzheimer's risk: study - Nutra USA,
12/17/07 - "After three months the researchers
report that animals receiving the supplementary silicon, whether from beer
or the silicic acid, had significantly lower
blood aluminium levels, and higher faecal excretion of aluminium ... The
lower blood levels resulted in slower accumulation of aluminium in the
tissue, including the brain, which could have benefits for the prevention of
Silicon may boost calcium/vitamin D bone benefits - Nutra USA, 11/23/05

pronounced in the PINP, the most sensitive bone formation marker. In the
groups receiving six and 12mg of silicon, the improvements were
Silicon May Play Important Role in Bone Health - Doctor's Guide, 9/27/05
- "Silicon, taken as choline-stabilized orthosilicic
acid (ch-OSA) supplementation, might help improve bone health and type I
collagen synthesis ... the benefits were especially apparent when evaluating
changes in PINP, the most sensitive bone formation marker, and resulted in
significant improvements after 12 months amongst the subjects in the six and
12 mg silicon groups"

of supplemental silicon that has been shown conclusively to be bioavailable
for humans" - BioSil is the only product that I know of that has this
