What is Silica?
Silicon is nearly always combined with oxygen to form silica (silicon dioxide). It rarely exists in its pure form in nature. A source of silicon, silica is a multifunctional component in the body required for the body’s overall structural construct. That includes the skeleton, connective tissues, blood vessel walls.
Silicon is NOT same as silicone, which is used to make breast implants.
Silicon is the third most abundant trace element in the human body after iron and zinc; while silicone is a material resembling plastic that contains silicon, oxygen and other chemicals.
Helping to rebuild bone and rejuvenate collagen production, silica is imperative for bone health, beauty and overall wellness. It acts and provides a total body anti-aging protection from head to toes.
Silica is essential for bone mineralization, allowing bones to remain strong, dense and flexible. Increasing collagen production in the body, silica also helps restore and strengthen cartilage, tendons, ligaments, joints, muscle, teeth, blood vessel, intestines while promoting healthy skin, hair and nails.
1. Bone Health
Silica plays an integral role for healthy bone mineral density, flexibility and strength.
Silica is touted by many as an all-purpose beauty booster. It not only helps improve the complexion, but also strengthens both hair and nails. What’s more, it helps boost integrity, strength, elasticity, firmness and health of connective tissues throughout the body.
3. Overall Wellness
Silica is essential for optimal collagen production. It is the most abundant protein found throughout the body, including bones, muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, lungs, intestinal walls and walls of blood vessels. But with the natural aging process, our body produces less collagen. Boosting collagen synthesis at the root is key to preserve overall wellness.
