Our bodies need silica. In our youth, our tissues absorb and maintain high levels of silica-enabling our bodies to remain flexible, resilient, and energetic-but as we age, our silica levels steadily decline. Silica supplementation can be an aid in supporting healthy bones, joints and cartilage, skin, nails, hair, teeth and gums.It's believed that silica supplementation may be a key factor in helping us maintain a healthier, more youthful, and pain-free body-and in reducing the body's natural recovery time.Silica and the bones + joints Calcium and Vitamin D alone are not sufficient for bone growth, density, strength, and flexibility. Silica, along with other trace minerals found in this formula, is needed to strengthen bones and increase collagen production. Cellfood Essential Silica Formula contains easy-to-absorb silica plus all the needed additional trace minerals.Silica and the skin, hair, nails, teeth + gums Studies show that without adequate silica, the body cannot maintain optimum skin elasticity, strong hair, nails, teeth and gums.Silica and the heart Studies confirm that with age, silica disappears from the aorta, the heart's key blood vessel-thus weakening its critical connective tissue, and resulting in a greater cardiac risk.Silica and the brain Silica levels decrease with aging and therefore may be needed in larger amounts by the elderly. Studies show that silica counteracts the effects of aluminum on the body and therefore may be important in supporting neurological health.IngredientsCellfood Essential Silica Formula contains Cellfood proprietary blend and pure silica.
