All the literature I have seen suggests that just about all the
nutritional properties attributed to silicon could be accounted for
by the detoxification of aluminium by silicon. The increased
availability of phosphate in the soil associated with soluble
silicon is another example albeit in a slightly different area.
Detoxification of aluminium may well be a good reason to
include soluble silicon in the diet.
