How and why the body ages has been the subject of many books and postulations. No conclusive data exist, but one thing is certain: poor nutrition plays a definite role in aging. For some reason yet unknown, aging is associated with a decrease in the silica content of the body.
This observation has been interpreted as an indication of why we need to consider silica supplements as we advance in years. This has led many to believe that silica may play a preventive role in aging and premature aging.
Considering the role that silica plays in maintaining the youthful appearance of hair, skin, and nails and its many valuable functions in disease prevention, it appears that silica should be more seriously seen as an essential element in the maintenance of youth and vitality of the body.
Silica is one of those elements whose list of benefits keeps growing as time passes. Silica is the second most prevalent element on earth, behind oxygen. In its crystalline form, silicon (or quartz), is the most abundant element in the earth's crust. When found in plant life, it's called silica. Silica is essential in bones, tendons, skin, cartilage and blood vessels. Silica is even found in the blood itself, and in such critical organs as the liver, heart and lungs. Silica in GHT's Silica Plus™ is quickly and efficiently delivered to the areas of the body where silica absorption is most needed.
Silica was recognized by the health and science community as an essential trace element in 1972. Research on this remarkable element continues, but a study in 1990 found it an absolute necessity for the proper function of skin, ligaments, tendons, and bones. Silica supplements are taken regularly by millions of people to strengthen and improve their bones, connective tissue, hair, and skin. Silica Plus is an excellent way to supplement this most important substance.
Silica adds strength and flexibility. It's obvious why strength and flexibility are essential to skin and bones. It's also important to know that silica supports blood vessel health, making it extremely important in supporting heart health. Recent studies have suggested that silica may have a key role in the prevention of osteoporosis and Alzheimer's disease.
Taken orally, liquid silica is easily absorbed via the intestinal wall. It is also rapidly and easily excreted; so regular, daily supplementation is important. Because it is water soluble, it does not "build up" in the body. No studies have found any negative effects of "too much" silica. Unfortunately, natural levels of silica tend to drop with age. Regular supplementation could make a significant difference in the quality of your life during later years.
Silica Plus contains two ounces of ultra pure, lead-free silica and ascorbic acid, plus the components of Oxygen Elements Plus as a delivery system. By offering silica to the body in a fast delivery base, assimilation is vastly improved and silica helps fix calcium into the bone matrix.
Because Silica Plus's benefits are so numerous, we think you'll agree that it's a wonderful value. Everyone of every age benefits from using this product.
