Crucial & Underestimated


While minerals such as magnesium, potassium, and iron are widely acknowledged for their roles in health, silica remains relatively less recognized and understood.

Accumulating evidence over the past 30 years strongly suggests that dietary silicon has been overlooked as a key trace mineral.


as we age

Diets in Europe and North America are typically low in silicon, which correlates with a high consumption of processed foods. This deficiency is mainly attributed to the refining of grains and the filtration of drinking water. Ravin Jugdaohsingh, a former scientist at both the USDA and Cambridge University, dedicated much of his work to demonstrating the health benefits of increased dietary silicon intake, including its mechanisms of action in connective tissues.

The challenge intensifies with age: we retain less silicon, and our intake tends to decrease. Gastrointestinal absorption of Si decreases with aging, as we have a reduced ability to metabolize dietary silica.

Consequently, the body attempts to offset this mineral deficiency by drawing from the healthy reserves in our bones and tissues, making us vulnerable to issues that exacerbate with age.



Incorporating highly bioavailable silica supplements into our diet can offer effective and sustained support, helping to replenish a good amount of the silica that our bodies can no longer efficiently absorb from natural sources. This proactive step not only aids in countering the natural decline but also empowers us to support the aging process.
