Nails and Hair
Silica is naturally found in nails, making them strong. When our dietary silica goes down, our nails grow slower and become more brittle. The same goes for hair. Silica also plays a role in keeping skin elastic and collagen healthy.
Since collagen is vital to healthy joints, ligaments, and cartilage, silica is important too. It lends strength and elasticity to collagen so joints are more flexible, heal quicker, and can snap back from the daily wear and tear our bodies undergo with all our bending, twisting, and stretching. Many people use silica to help ease joint pain and arthritis symptoms.
There are many studies that show that the presence of silica helps the body use calcium. As we get older our silica levels decline and our bones weaken. There is plenty of evidence that silica is vital to bone health and preventing fractures as we get older. Teeth and gums get a boost from silica too.
If your bones are feeling a little slouchy, you may not be giving your body the nutrients it needs.
Silica is more prevalent in healthy hearts than diseased hearts. Since silica strengthens muscle tissue, this shouldn’t be too surprising. It also aids the body in calcification of bones and thus prevents the calcification of other tissues. There is some evidence that silica may help offset the calcification of arterial plaque. It may also play a role in the electrochemical transmissions of the nervous system.
Silica is important in strong stomach and digestive tract muscles and tissues. Silica assists in rebuilding and fortifying these tissues after they have been damaged by poor diet, parasites, or other injury.
Since silica is a vital part of healthy skin and digestive tissue, it is also important in preventing illness and infection. The skin and our digestive system are the first lines of defense we have against pathogens.
As a part of collagen, silica can speed healing of burns, wounds, and scar tissue.
Silica is very good at removing waste material, toxins, and heavy metals from the body. This makes silica a good addition to any detox program to deeply cleanse your cells.
