Silica is known to be more present in healthy hearts than in diseased hearts, because it strengthens blood vessels and muscle tissue.*

Since silica strengthens muscle tissue, it help sstrengthen the muscles and tissues of the stomach and digestive tract. It can help regenerate these muscles if they have been damaged by poor diet, parasites, age, orother injuries.*

Like collagen, silica is vital for the health of joints, connective tissue or ligaments,tendons, and cartilage.*

Its deficiency causes our nails and hair to grow more slowly and become more brittle.the skin loses elasticity and luminosity.*

There is ample evidence that silica prevents fractures as we age. Like bones, teeth and gumsalso benefit from silica.*

It has been shown to improve immunity. Silica is important because it helps the body identify and fight potential threats such as bacteria, viruses, and parasites.* 

As part of collagen, silica can accelerate the healing of burns, wounds, and scar tissue.It is widely recommended by dermatologists.

It has been shown to be a safe and effective toxin chelator in humans. This process binds metals and minerals so they can be excreted from the body.*
