BioSil 5mg by Jarrow Formulas
BioSil's active silicon is an essential partner of calcium for bones, glucosamine for joints, and antioxidants for healthier arteries and cardiovascular function.*
The superiority of silicon as concentrated, choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid from BioSil™ has been proven in a peer reviewed scientific study comparing three different forms of silicon. Only BioSil™ offered a bioavailable source of silicon; the other forms of silicon tested (horsetail and colloidal gel) were no better than placebo.
Each capsule of patented BioSil™ contains 5 mg of silicon as choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid.
BioSil’s active silicon is an essential partner of calcium for bones, glucosamine for joints, and antioxidants for healthier arteries and cardiovascular function.*
The Importance of Silicon--
Silicon is a trace mineral required for the formation of healthy connective tissue, bone, skin, hair and nails. Silicon is important for collagen formation, healthy arteries and the regulation of calcium deposition in bones.*
Absorption is Key--
Dietary sources of silicon such as those found in food, horsetail and colloidal gel (silica) products are very poorly absorbed because of their insoluble, polymerized forms. For absorption to occur, dietary silicon must be first converted to Orthosilicic Acid (monomeric silicic acid), the bioavailable form provided by BioSil™.
Why is BioSil™ Different?
BioSil™ (Si[OH]4) is 20,000 times more soluble than silica (SiO2 — found in horsetail and colloidal gels) and 2.5 times more bioavailable than other forms of silicon!
The superiority of silicon as concentrated, choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid from BioSil™ has been proven in a peer-reviewed scientific study comparing three different forms of silicon. The results of the comparative, cross-over, double-blind clinical trial demonstrated that the stabilized monomeric form of silicon (stabilized orthosilicic acid – as found in BioSil™) is far superior to colloidal silica and horsetail extract. In fact, of the thre experimental groups, only BioSil™ offered a bioavailable source of silicon; the other forms of silicon (horsetail and colloidal gel) were no better than placebo.
