The Silicon we use is from a natural Horsetail plant extract.
Silicon is used to help the treatment of osteoporosis, cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer's disease, and of course improving hair and nail quality. It is also used for improving skin healing, treating sprains and strains, and digestive system disorders.
Silicon is a trace mineral that is found in the body as orthosilicic acid. Silicon dioxide, also known as silica, is present in foods such as vegetables, whole gains, and seafood. There is some evidence that Silicon might have a role in bone and collagen formation. Most of the silicon in the body is contained in connective tissues such as in the aorta, trachea, bone, tendons, and skin.
Silicon might also protect against atherogenesis.
Orthosilicic acid seems to stimulate osteoblasts in humans. Preclinical research suggests that silicon supplementation might inhibit bone resorption and stimulate bone formation in laboratory models of estrogen deficiency.
