Global Health Trax Silica Plus
Silica Plus Nutritional Benefits
Silica has been found to increase the flexibility of all body tissues. Flexibility is particularly important to lung expansion, allowing for deeper breathing. This mineral provides strength and flexibility to connective tissue, joint cartilage, hair, skin, nails, and blood vessels, which may support heart health. Silica has also been shown to build strong bones by facilitating the deposit of calcium and minerals into the interior of the bone. Silica is a major constituent of collagen, which helps keep our skin elastic. We need Silica on a daily basis, and since the body cannot supply its own, it must be externally supplied. For that reason Silica is called an "essential" mineral.
What is Silica?
Silicon is the second most prevalent mineral found in the earth's crust, in rocks such as quartz, obsidian, granite, diorite, and sandstone. Silica (silicon dioxide), a derivative, is found in plants, in such herbs as horsetail, and in high-fiber foods such as whole grains, rice, fruits and vegetables. It has been shown to be essential to human health, especially as we age. In the past, we were able to obtain sufficient silica from our foods to sustain good health, but modern refining methods have removed silica from our foods, making it harder to obtain. Because it occurs naturally in foods and in our bodies, silica is considered safe and nontoxic.
Silica Plus is colloidal, which means that the tiny particles of silica dioxide are evenly dispersed throughout the solution, making it absorbable and usable by the body. The combination of Silica with other ingredients (listed on the label) results in a product of high nutritive value that will meet your daily silica requirement absolutely! Further enhancements with ionic minerals and Glycono Delta Lactone provide for better absorption and for greater mental alertness.
