PRODUCT SELECTOR

It is believed that levels of silica are highest during infancy. As we age, levels of silica in the body tend to decline. Supporting a healthy diet with our supplements helps ensure you receive adequate amounts of mineral silica, particularly when sources of this mineral may be lacking in your diet.

Mineral silica (importantly the element silicon contained within it) is the second most abundant element in the earth’s crust and is found in plants, animals and most living organisms1. Silicon is very hard and is found in rock crystals such as quartz and flint2.

Naturally occurring

Silicon is a naturally occurring trace element in the human body, obtained mainly from the diet. Evidence suggests that dietary silicon is important for bone formation and plays a role in maintaining bone and connective tissue health. It's suggested that silicon is involved with collagen synthesis as well as bone mineralisation1.
