Product Description

 

(±180 parts per million) Next to oxygen, Silicon is the most prevalent element on earth. The mineral Silicon makes up 28.9% of the earth's crust. Within the human body, the naturally occurring mineral is found in the form of Silica. A natural compound made up of silicon and oxygen. 

The amount of silica in the adult human body has been found to be as high as .48% on a dry weight basis. All connective tissue cells in the body, the nails, the hair and the skin contains silica. Silica plays an active role in bone formation, in giving tissues hold, firmness, and strength, and in bone re-mineralization. Silica molecules enhance the body's ability to increase water-absorption of essential proteins, acting as a binding agent. By binding existing calcium, protein and water molecules together, they help strengthen and revitalize skin, hair and nails. Foods that are usually rich in silica these days grow in mineral depleted soils, therefore our daily diets may lack sufficient quantities of silica. Due to a depletion of silica in our bodies through the aging process, we result with symptoms of dry skin, wrinkles, dull, lackluster hair, and brittle nails. Silica is found in blood, brain, kidneys, liver, lymph nodes, lungs, muscle, and testes. The highest levels are found in the connective tissues such as in the aorta, trachea, tendon, bone, skin, hair, and nails. Therefore, it gives strength and support to all the tissues of the body. Silica is especially important in children, playing a role in the formation of bones. It tends to accelerate bone development and has a positive effect on thee phosphorus to calcium ratio.
