Connective tissue: Silica acts as an important connective tissue cross-linking agent, contributing to the architecture and resilience of connective tissue by building bridges between elastin, collagen and mucopolysaccharides (such as chondroitin sulfate and other glycosaminoglycans), which aids in tissue stability and rigidity.
Bone, cartilage and teeth: In the early stages of bone development, silica is intimately involved in the incorporation of calcium and phosphate into bone apatite, helping to increase the rate of mineralisation of new bone. It acts as a nucleating agent or seed crystal around which bone mineralisation progresses, and thus is necessary for the initiation of bone growth (for example during foetal development and bone repair). Silica is also involved in the growth of cartilage and teeth.
