Silicon has a functional role, primarily in the female. Its metabolism is at least partially controlled by steroid and thyroid hormones. Reduced hormonal activity in old age may explain the changes observed in aged animals. Organic silicon is capable of improving the Ca-Mg imbalances caused by hormonal imbalances which are themselves caused by natural (age) and experimental (ovariectomy) factors; this provides evidence for a Si-gonadal interaction.
