Silica Complex 500 mg Vegetarian - 90 Tabs
Silica (or silicon as it’s technically known) is a completely natural, non-metallic element found in specific polysaccharide structures – especially our skin, hair and nails. Derived from 100% horsetail extract and thoroughly screened for purity and potency, NOW Silica Complex is a unique, synergistic blend of nutrients that may improve the quality of these protein rich components, essential to natural beauty.

Silica gives your skin and nails a youthful, healthy appearance. It can also boost your immune system and help keep your artery walls flexible, potentially preventing heart disease. Because most foods we consume do not contain silicon, it needs to be supplemented.  Benefits include:

1. Improve Skin

People who want to make improvements on their appearance should consider silica supplements as this mineral helps support the collagen found in skin. By working with the collagen, silica can provide a more youthful and supple appearance while helping prevent the development of wrinkles.

2. Improve Joint Function

Taking silica supplements can also help improve joint function because it helps with strengthening the connective tissues that are found in the joints which in turn can also improve overall flexibility. Silica can even reduce swelling of your joints that are due to injury which in turn will allow them to heal more quickly.

3. Aid Digestive Function

Silica supplements are also able to aid with digestive function because this mineral helps maintain the tissues that are found along the body’s digestive tract. Using a silica supplement can decrease intestinal and stomach inflammation as well as help eliminate issues such as constipation, diarrhea and ulcers.

4. Improve Cardiovascular Health

Additionally, taking silica supplements can increase a person’s cardiovascular health. That is because silica is an essential mineral for helping keep blood vessel walls supple and strong. It may even help clear up plaques as well as prevent heart disease.

5. Inhibit Aluminum Absorption

A silica supplement can also help inhibit your body’s absorption of aluminum, meaning that it is able to help decrease the amount of aluminum buildup that is found in the brain’s tissues. This is important as many doctors consider aluminum buildup a risk factor that can lead to the development of Alzheimer’s meaning that adding silica to your diet may reduce your risk of developing this disease.

6. Improve Hair Condition

Silica does wonders at helping develop a lustrous and beautiful head of hair because it repairs the majority of the collagen and connective tissues found in the body and this will in turn improve your hair’s strength. If you add silica supplements to your well-balanced diet, you can see improvements in your hair in just a few months.
