The plant contains an iridoid glycoside (aucubin) and carotenes, tannins, silicic acid
and enzymes as well as potassium, magnesium and phosphorus.
Aqueous solutions of soluble silicates, such as salts of a weak silicic acid
and a strong base, for example, sodium, are alkaline.
(4) High levels of silica in drinking water in the form of silicic acid
appear to protect against the adverse effects of aluminum ingestion, plus silicic acid
ingestion increases urinary aluminum excretion.
When applied exogenously, silicon (as silicic acid
) will accumulate and polymerize on the walls of leaf cells to generate a mechanical barrier that impairs insect attack (Yoshida 1981).
The water glass can react with an appropriate amount of acid and produce the silicic acid
gel in the preset time to consolidate the stratum.
For the analysis of glycolipids and phospholipids from seed, the lipids were fractionated on silicic acid
columns into neutral lipids, glycolipids, and phospholipids by elution with chloroform, acetone, and methanol, respectively.
It's a liquid combination of silicic acid
, silicon and oxygen in a colloidal hydrated gel which lines the digestive tract (one tablespoon covers an area of three square metres).
Sodium silicate during the exchange reactions with a cation exchanger (Amberlite IR-2000) resulted in the formation of silicic acid
which upon hydrolysis gives Si(OH)4.
is a form of Si that roots uptake from roots, and then translocated.
After the extract had been separated into two phases by adding 4 mL chloroform and 4mL citrate buffer, the extracted lipids were fractionated into neutral lipids, glycolipids and polar lipids on silicic acid
columns (Bond Elut; Varian Inc., Palo Alto, CA, USA) by eluting with 1.5 mL chloroform, 6mL acetone and 1.5 mL methanol, respectively.
A comprehensive description of the biosilica reaction during the use of silicic acid
as a starting substrate was published recently (Schroder et al., 2012).
Osteo-Sil[TM] contains a bio-available form of silicon (silicic acid
) which is a clinically proven to increase bone cell and collagen production.
