Product Description
A Trace Mineral important for Skin, Hair, Ligaments and Bone.Silica is needed for the formation of collagen in the bone and cartilage. There is some evidence to show that Silica is necessary to aid the formation of apatite crystal which is one of the main ingredients in our bones. Silica is found naturally mainly in fresh vegetables, especially cabbage, lettuce, parsnips, asparagus, olives and radishes. Unfortunately, modern food processing strips away the Silica content of many foods.The Giant Panda of China exists almost exclusively on bamboo, and its skeletal system is incredibly strong, yet very flexible. These unique properties are thought to be related in some part to the high silica content of bamboo.Silica plays an essential role in mineral absorption and may help in recalcifying decalcified bones and decalcify soft tissue deposits of calcium. Silicon enhances the function of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and boron, and is essential for normal bone development which may help prevent osteoporosis. Silicon helps to maintain the correct calcium-magnesium balance. Silicon may be useful in strengthening the musculoskeletal system, preventing injuries and helping bones to heal in athletes and others.
