Note from Nathan Zassman:If your hair is thinning, your nails easily break, or your skin isn't as healthy as you feel it should be, we have a selection of silica products that will strengthen your hair, and nails. These products also help build bone, so they are synergistic with bone building supplements. The best products include Sili-Mer, Biosil, and Bamboo Sil. Regular use helps the body produce keratin and collagen, which can help erase wrinkles and help you look younger.
To build collagen, the most abundant protein in the body, important for not only hair, skin and nails, but also for bone health, the precursors in the body include Vitamin C, proline and lysine.
Silica - The Key to Healthy Skin, Hair, and Nails
Good nutrition is vital to looking and feeling healthy. Vitamins, minerals, and other essential nutrients directly influence physical health and ensure the proper functioning of all of the body's systems. One important mineral, silica, is necessary for maintaining healthy bones, connective tissue, hair, skin, and nails. Technically known as silicon, this mineral can be found in all of the body's internal organs, and in every cell and strand of hair.
Silica helps strengthen the connective tissues in the body, and is an essential mineral that is necessary for the health of bones, hair, skin, nails, mucous membranes, and arteries. Research has shown there is a direct link between the levels of silica in the body and the health of hair, skin, and nails. Recently, silica has been discovered to generate hair regrowth, and many commercial hair products currently on the market have begun including silica in their formulas.
Silica improves the overall absorption of nutrients and the healthy excretion of waste products from the body. Ideal silica levels will result in effective toxin removal and enable the skin to remain properly and fully hydrated. If you experience symptoms of silica deficiency, supplementation may be required. Most forms of dietary silica are not readily absorbed, and the need for silica increases as the body ages.
As we age, our skin becomes less elastic. This results in sagging and loss of skin tone. Adequate levels of silica may help restore elasticity and repair sun-damaged skin. Aging also reduces our ability to absorb sufficient levels of silica from our diet, resulting in a deficiency that leads to wrinkles, dull hair, and peeling fingernails. Silica supplementation will likely eliminate the need to purchase expensive hair care products, anti-aging remedies, and nail strengthening applications.
Some multi-vitamin formulas contain silica, but chances are good that the levels those formulas contain are too low if you are currently experiencing symptoms of silica deficiency. Silica needs increase with age, which means frequent adjustments to both diet and supplement levels to ensure sufficient intake of this essential mineral. Increasing your silica intake may finally give you the beautiful nails and lustrous hair that you have always wanted.
