Daily Dose of Silicon

[Daily Dose of Silicon]

I've been trying to remember to take my vitamins. I took them a few minutes ago, and it occurred to me that I really don't know everything that's in them. So I checked. Other than not having a fucking clue what Molybdenum is, I feel rather comfortable with the list.

Then, there are the nutrients that don't have RDAs:
  • Asian Ginseng Root (Korean white) Extract 55 mg (Panax ginseng)
  • Ginkgo Biloba Extract (Ginkgo biloba) (leaf) 60 mg - Standardized to 24% (14.4 mg)
  • Silicon 4 mg
  • Boron 310 mcg
  • Lycopene 300 mcg
  • Lutein 250 mcg
  • Tin 10 mcg
  • Vanadium 10 mcg
  • Nickel 6.5 mcg
Here's where I get really confused. Why do I need Tin and Silicon? Somebody help me out here . . . .
