I have found a couple of different of vitamin formulas that are designed to improve hair skin and nails. They both contain silica. It is good to know I am helping my body and not just encouraging my vanity.
mineral silica (Si) is getting more notice for its important functions.
Sometimes called the "beauty mineral" because it improves skin elasticity and
hair and nail growth, a few other more important aspects have been explored
Silica helps ensure collagen elasticity of all connecting tissues
in the body, including tendons and cartilage. This reduces aches and pains and
maintains your body's flexibility. It has also been determined lately that high
levels of blood serum silica keep arterial plaque from building and clogging
The main culprit for that plaque has recently shifted from
cholesterol buildup to calcification from calcium in the blood that is not
absorbed as bone matter. It has been known that silica is an important part of
building bone matter. Without it, calcium goes elsewhere to potentially calcify
in the soft tissue of inner artery walls and the heart.
Silica is vital
for keeping strong bones and a healthy cardiovascular system.This
qualifies silica as an essential anti-aging mineral that is much more than skin
Silica for detoxing heavy metals - especially aluminum
acknowledges silicic acid as an antidote for aluminum poisoning and silica as a
detox agent for heavy metals. Both brain tissue calcification and aluminum
toxicity are linked to Alzheimer's disease.
Now it's been discovered that
silica can be supplemented to help prevent yet another aspect of aging -
dementia. Obviously it can also be used as an adjunct with any other Alzheimer's
treatment, such as pure cold pressed coconut oil .
(Al) is passed out through the urine when one supplements silica. It seems
there's little danger of taking too much, as long as adequate water is consumed
and vitamin B1 and potassium levels are maintained.
There is no shortage
of aluminum toxicity in our environment. It's in cookware, beverage containers,
foil, second hand cigarette smoke, cosmetics, sunscreen, chemtrails, and more.
For sure, it is in all vaccines.
Injecting aluminum bypasses the normal
route of eliminating it.
Aluminum accumulates in tissue that doesn't have
a rapid cellular turnover. The slow turnover tissues are contained in bone
matter, the heart and the brain. The brain and its associated nervous system is
where diseases such as Parkinson's, MS, chronic fatigue and other neurological
or auto-immune diseases manifest.
Dr. Chris Exley, PhD, has dedicated
almost two decades of his scientific life to researching aluminum toxicity. He
calls the period of time from the early 20th Century to now the "Age of
Aluminum." Before then, aluminum remained in the ground and hadn't yet been
mined. Exley claims mining aluminum and using it in so many ways corresponds to
the marked increase of neurological diseases.
He recommended a couple of
pricey mineral waters high in silica that better health food stores carry (Video
source below, Exley lecture). He claimed positive results occurred with vaccine
injured children drinking these waters, but there are other good less pricey
silica sources as well.
Horsetail is an excellent and inexpensive herbal source
of silica. Horsetail has been around for centuries, and mostly forgotten until
recent research attention uncovered more attributes. Until then, horsetail was
used mostly as a diuretic or treatment for kidney stones.
which silica is useful will benefit from horsetail. And there are supplements
that are formulated for silica intake that you may want to look into. Foods that
help keep your silica levels high are: Unrefined whole grains such as rye,
barley, oats, and wheat. Alfalfa sprouts nuts, and other seeds will boost your
silica levels.Sources for this article include
