Although we strive for better health, the majority of supplements are only available in capsules or tablets. For those who cannot take pills or dislike them, this poses a major obstacle
Organika's Silica Gel is the perfect alternative. One teaspoon once per day will provide you with 30 mg of silicon and 6 mg of vitamin C. After oxygen, silicon is the second most abundant element on the earth's curst.
Silicon is required for a number of processes in the body including the formation of collagen in connective tissue. Unfortunately, silicon levels naturally decrease as we age. Maintain good health without the fuss of pills.
Organika's Silica Gel is potent, pleasantly flavoured and comes in easy dosages to aid your connective tissue formation.
Silica forms structural components of bone and connective tissue, such as collagen. It is especially needed during the early phase of bone mineralization and is found in high concentrations in the bony growth plates. It also forms elastin, a connective tissue that is responsible for the elasticity of connective tissue found in the skin, lungs and blood vessels. Silica levels decline with age and a deficiency of silica may lead to degeneration of the vessels, bones and connective tissue that is commonly seen in the elderly.
The skin is the largest organ in the body. It has several important functions. It acts as a barrier to the external environment including harmful microbes, chemicals and radiation. It allows the exchange of water and some nutrients. It can eliminate toxins, minerals and other substances that have built up inside the body
Skin is made up of several layers. The epidermal outer layer contains keratinized skin cells. It is the fibrous, protective shield for the body. The epidermis is firmly attached to inner layers of irregular connective tissue, the dermis. The dermis contains collagen, the structural support, and elastin, the stretchy support. Only the dermis has blood supply, nutrients reach the outer skin layers only by diffusion.
Free radicals are unstable molecules that in their bid to become more stable must bump into healthy cells and cause damage. This can cause cell death, alterations in genetic material and autoimmune reactions to damaged cells. Ultraviolet radiation from the sun is the major contributor of free radicals that build up in the skin.
