  • The chemical affinity of silicic acid for aluminium (AI) has been shown to reduce the bioavailability of AI in studies of human gastrointestinal (GI) absorption. Investigations were carried out to ascertain whether or not similar interactions may also enhance the renal excretion of AI by assessing the urinary output of both elements. Healthy individuals given monosilicic acid as naturally found in beer, excreted the majority of the silicic acid content (mean 56 percent) within 8 hours… CONTINUE READING
