Silica, derived from Horsetail (Equisetum arvens) - The durable horsetail plant is a superb source of silica and calcium, necessary for bone and connective tissue repair and maintenance. Horsetail has traditionally been used to speed recovery from fractures and torn ligaments. Although abundant in nature, silica is poorly absorbed by the body. Silica is essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. Silica works on a cellular level and is part of the cartilage-forming cells and the fiber building cells that form collagen.
Silica is a naturally occurring non-metallic element, also known as silicon. It is a component of certain bodily polysaccharide structures such as hair, skin, and nails. Our Silica is derived from Horsetail Extract and is thoroughly screened for potency and purity. We have complexes the silica in this supplement with other synergistic ingredients for a truly effective dietary supplement.
Since the ancient physician, Galen, first recommended it several cultures have employed Horsetail as a folk remedy for kidney and bladder troubles, arthritis, bleeding ulcers and tuberculosis. Horsetail has been used for centuries in both Chinese and European herbology to treat external wounds. Because of its high tannin content, Horsetail helps halt bleeding, making it a popular treatment for nosebleeds and hemorrhoids. Horsetail is also said to alleviate painful urination, reduce inflammation of the prostate gland, and it helps to eliminate some cases of adolescent bed-wetting. Primary chemical constituents of Horsetail include flavonoids, bitter principle, alkaloids (equisetin, nicotine, palustrine, palustrinine), silica, calcium, manganese, magnesium, sulphur, potassium, phytosterols and tannin. Horsetail is very rich in silica acid and silicates, which provide approximately two-to-three percent elemental silicon. The presence of bioflavonoids are believed to cause a diuretic action, while the silica content is said to exert a connective tissue-strengthening and anti-arthritic action. Some experts have suggested that the element, silica, is a vital component for bone and cartilage formations. This would indicate that Horsetail might be beneficial in preventing osteoporosis.
