Kordels Silica Plus provides high grade silica from horsetail to strengthen hair, skin and nails.
Silica is helpful in promoting healthy hair, preventing hair loss, promoting hair growth as well as healthy skin and nails. Silica Plus tablets contains Horsetail Herb (Equisetum arvense), an organic form of silica. The second most abundant element on Earth, Silica is a component of all connective tissue and cartilage and important for its strength and elasticity. Of the available forms of silica, absorption is better from the vegetable form than the inorganic type.
Silica's mode of action appears to be bonding to minerals and vitamins and taking them to the peripherals of the body, the hair, skin and nails. In a published study on the influence of silica in 50 women with skin ageing, fragile hair and brittle nails, there was a marked reduction in wrinkles as well as increased thickeness and strength of facial skin, and a general improvement in the state of hair and nail tissue.
Silica concentrates in the calcifications sites within bone tissue, facilitates the construction of the protein matrix upon which calcium is bound and allows for the formation of the main bones of the body. A study in France showed that one year of silica supplementation yielded a significant increase in thigh bone mass.
Dosage: One capsule daily.
