Silicon is a metalloid present in the structure of water-soluble, biologically active mineral and organic compounds. It activates the intra-adipocyte action of cAMP, thus stimulating lipolysis and hydrolysis of triglycerides, without affecting cell metabolism. It is a structural element of the connective tissue, that is also part of macromolecules such as elastin,
collagen, proteoglycans and structural glycproteins. It acts as regulator and normaliser of cell metabolism and cell division.
