Silica is a mineral that is derived from the natural silicon in the environment. Silica is a mineral that is crucial to health because it balances mineral absorption and use within the body, keeps the arteries and heart healthy and keeps the nail, skin, joints and bones healthy. Silica is a mineral rich in foods such as oats, potatoes, barley, millet, red beets and horsetail extract. By including these foods in your diet you are giving your body more silica reserves to use to create healthy hair, skin, nails, bones, joint cartilage and more.
Beyond the beautifying effects of silica, it’s very important for keeping the arteries healthy and balanced. When the body has excess amounts of calcium and not enough other minerals to balance the synergy of these minerals the body will store minerals such as calcium in the body in the form of calcium deposits. The body will store calcium deposits in the joints as well as calcification within the arteries. The problem this causes is artery constriction, which constricts blood flow to and from the heart.
This means that the heart has to work harder to pump blood to supply the body and other vital organs in the body with nutrients, minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, oxygen, water and more. By including silica in your diet, your body uses this mineral to remove excess calcium from the arteries, as well as other areas of the body to remove excess calcium to keep things in the body flowing properly.
Beyond these benefits, Silica also is a heavy metal detoxifier specifically known to help reduce and remove aluminum within the body. Heavy metal toxicity can cause many health problems and will usually always be endocrine disruptors causing hormonal imbalances within the body. By including silica in your diet, you help to remove the heavy metal load on the body allowing hormones to be optimized and flow freely.
