In the last 30 years, a few studies on silicon effects on mammals, fish, and birds were conducted (33,38,86). Data have shown that active silicon (fine amorphous silica) increased the weight and quality of animals. Chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus), pig (Sus scrofa), and sheep (Ovis aries) with silicon-rich diets were healthier and stronger than animals without silicon supplements (33,38).
