Silicon, sometimes called silica, is a trace mineral. It is necessary for the formation of collagen for bones and connective tissue, for healthy nails, skin, and hair, and for calcium absorption in the early stages of bone formation. It is needed to maintain flexible arteries and plays a major role in cardiovascular health. A recommended daily intake for silicon has not been established. The average diet is estimated to provide 5–20 mg of silicon per day—an amount that appears adequate. When used as a supplement, common amounts range from 1 to 10 mg per day.
