The age of the connective tissue can be determined based on the content of SiO2.
SiO2 content in the human body decreases with age. This can be seen, for example, in wrinkles on the skin (lines), reduced elasticity of the connective tissue, lifeless hair and hair fall, brittle finger nails, osteoporosis.
Silicon (SiO2) shortage increases with age. This then results in loss of water-binding capacity in the connective tissue. The consequences are, thus, visible on the face. Those, who have regulary consumed silicon dioxide, which forms a major part of clinoptilolite zeolite, at the right time, can keep their connective tissues young even with growing age and can have a wrinkle-free facial skin and dense hair.
The highest silicon content has a newborn. With increasingly age reduces itself the silicon content.
