    The Health Benefits of Orthosilicic Acid

        The Health Benefits of Orthosilicic Acid

        Orthosilicic acid is a natural substance found in seafood, seawater, vegetables, whole grains, and certain beverages,

    including beer. Sometimes referred to as soluble silica, an ortho silicic

    is a dietary form of silicon, a mineral involved in the formation of collagen and bone.

        Orthosilicic acid is available in supplement form and is used to treat certain medical conditions and to boost hair and

    skin health. Some, but not all, of these uses have been supported by scientific evidence.

        Note: Silicon should not be confused with silicone—a substance used to make medical devices, including breast implants.

        Health Benefits

        Some alternative medicine proponents claim that orthosilicic acid supplements can treat or prevent a wide range of health

    conditions, including:

        Alzheimer's disease



        Heart disease

        High cholesterol


        In addition, orthosilicic acid is said to improve nails, protect skin from the negative effects of aging, preserve dental

    health, and stimulate digestion.

        To date, very few studies have tested the health effects of orthosilicic acid, so it's too soon to recommend it as a

    treatment for any condition. However, preliminary research shows that orthosilicic acid may offer certain health benefits in

    some key areas.

        Bone Health

        In early studies on human cells, scientists discovered that orthosilicic acid may help promote bone formation by

    stimulating the production of collagen (a protein found in connective tissue, including bone) and promoting the development

    of bone-forming cells.1

        A 2008 study from BMC Musculoskeletal Disorders suggested that orthosilicic acid may help protect against loss of bone

    density. For the study, 136 women with osteopenia took calcium, vitamin D, and either orthosilicic acid or a placebo every

    day for a year.

        By the study's end, participants given the vitamins with orthosilicic acid showed greater improvements in bone

    formation. According to the study's authors, this finding indicates that orthosilicic acid shows promise as a treatment

    for osteoporosis.

        However, studies have been inconsistent in determining if taking an orthosilicic acid supplement is as effective as

    consuming silicon through diet. So far, research indicates that getting silicon from food may be more effective.


        Although not a major plant nutrient, silica is still considered to be important in any grow room. One of the most

    abundant components in the earth’s crust, silicon is a major contributor to the plant kingdom. It comprises of about 55-70%

    of soil mass and just happens that some plants have the ability to gather high levels of silica in their tissue. These plants

    have high levels of silica compared to minerals such as magnesium, calcium, and phosphorus.

        In the past, agronomists ignored the use of silicon fertilizer

    but lately, due to its benefits to the growth of a plant and its ability to improve plants resistance to disease it is

    becoming more popular with many plant growers who apply silica to their gardens for a wide range of plants.

        The use of silica is common among hydroponic farmers who add it directly to the reservoir away from other nutrients since

    the mineral becomes sticky when added together with other concentrated salts.

        Liquid seaweed fertilizer is simply what its name suggests: a

    fertilizer that has been derived from natural seaweed sources. Seaweed is collected, some of the saltwater rinsed away and

    then allowed to decompose or ferment in water until the plant material is broken down into a liquid or slurry.

        Seaweeds - especially kelp, a large brown seaweed - and liquid seaweed extract have been used for many years as

    fertilizers in commercial crop production because of their positive effect on plant growth and yield. As the trend towards

    using sustainable products increases, these products are gaining more popularity both commercially and in home gardens to

    meet plant demands. Known as biofertilizers, or biostimulants, they offer many benefits over conventional fertilizers.

        As a new type of fertilizer, water soluble fertilizer has

    obvious advantages compared with traditional fertilizers and granulated compound fertilizers. It is a quick-acting fertilizer

    with good water solubility, no residue, can be completely dissolved in water, and can be directly absorbed and utilized by

    the roots and leaves of crops.

        The integration of water and fertilizer has attracted much attention because of its convenience, high efficiency, water

    and fertilizer saving, and less environmental pollution. Many countries also regards the integration of water and fertilizer

    as an important strategic goal of agricultural development.

        Water-soluble fertilizers can be divided into two types: solid water-soluble fertilizer and liquid water-soluble

    fertilizer. From the nutrient content, there are macro-nutrient water-soluble fertilizers, medium element water-soluble

    fertilizers, trace element water-soluble fertilizers, amino acid-containing water-soluble fertilizers, humic acid-containing

    water-soluble fertilizers, and organic water-soluble fertilizers.

        Applied at the beginning of the cropping cycle, controlled

    release fertilizer
    s (CRFs) are coated fertilizers that deliver nutrients to plants over a defined and extended period

    of time. Generally, CRF nutrient release is driven by average soil temperature. Higher soil temperatures cause the fertilizer

    to release nutrients more quickly. Greenhouse growers have much greater control over the indoor production environment

    compared to outside container nurseries, where CRF use is more prevalent.

        Humic acid is a mixture of natural organic macromolecular compounds, which exists in all soils, plants and animals,and

    have been widely used in agricultural production in recent years due to their unique physiological functions.

        The one source of humic acids are the sedimentation layers referred to as Leonardite.

        Leonardite is organic matter, which has not reached the state of coal and differs from soft brown coal by its high

    oxidation degree, a result of the process of coal formation (bog > peat > coal), and high humic acid content as well as

    higher carboxyl groups.

        Now Humic fertilizer has been widely used in agricultural

    production in recent years due to its unique physiological functions.

        Chitosan Fertilizer functions as it can start, regulate and

    directly affect the opening and closing of certain gens and regulate the process of plant growth. Oligosaccharin can reduce

    and eliminate the encroachment of pathogenic agents especially against fungal infections, which are difficult to control. The

    product has no poison, no residue is left over and is fit for organic farming and nonpolluting. Chitosan oligosaccharides can

    activate plants and induce plants to produce antiviral substances.
