    A Naturally Occuring Part Of Healthy Skin, Hair And Nails!

    Silica is a naturally occuring non-metallic element, also known as silicon. It is a component of certain bodily polysaccharide structures such as joints, hair, skin, and nails.

    Most of the silica in our diet is lost through refining processes whereby the fibrous, high silicon part of the plant foodstuffs is removed.

    Silica & Bone/Joint Health: Silica is a mineral which can enhance the effectiveness of other joint health supplements including glucosamine and chondroitin sulphates, as well as calcium-magnesium. Research into Silica has shown that it is this mineral which:-

  • regulates how calcium is deposited
  • cross-links with glucosamine to form joint cartilage
  • connects chondroitin sulfates to make up joint & connective tissue
  • activates the enzymes that produce cartilage.

    Silica & Skin Health: Silica activates the enzymes that produce collagen, elastin for healthy skin, beautiful hair and strong nails.

    A recent research study, conducted in Finland, demonstrated that silica supplementation can significantly improve the quality and appearance of hair, skin and nails. In this 90 day study, half of the subjects with thin or brittle hair reported a complete improvement in their condition, half of those with brittle nails reported a significant improvement, and a majority of the subjects with aged skin showed an increase in dermal thickness and appearance.

    Silica may be helpful for

  • improving the appearance of ageing skin
  • strengthening thinning, weak hair and nails
  • minor skin problems and defects
