Silicon dioxide is a trace mineral found naturally in many plant foods and is added to many multivitamin supplements. It is necessary for healthy bones, skin, hair and nails.

4. Sunflower seeds

Also known for high nutritional value, roasted sunflower seeds also contain a healthy amount of silicon dioxide.

Drink silicic acid in the form of drinking water is one of the intake of silica way. Although water purification technology can extract silicon from the water , but it's not necessary to do this, because the silicon is good for health. Silicon content in water varies greatly. The study found in soft water silicon dioxide content is not high, but hard water rich in this mineral.

Beer can promote renal health. Beer is a rich source of silicon and silicic acid soluble. The study found beer elemental silicon can promote bone density and help prevent fractures. Furthermore, tea and coffee are also silicon-containing beverages.

Garlic is a good condiment, and also rich in silicon dioxide. Great ephedra to treat kidney stones and other urinary tract diseases, also containing silicon herbs. In addition, large ephedra also provide calcium and potassium. In fact, of all the herbs, the highest silica content is ephedra.
