all the minerals important for good health, silica
far the most underrated and misunderstood mineral of all. It is
the seventh most prevalent element in human tissue after calcium.
Research done in the 1970's by Dr. Edith Carlisle at the UCLA School
of Public Health affirmed without any doubt the extreme importance
Her research, performed at the UCLA School of Public Health, showed
silica to be essential in collagen formation and connective tissue
strength. Collagen is the tough fibrous material which holds us
together and is the major component of everything from our bones
to our skin. Supplementation with this essential element may improve
or alleviates or improves many of the following diverse symptoms:
1. Calcium deposits on bone, in joints, and in soft tissues (calcium
Teeth and gum disease, and structural failure.
Gastrointestinal problems such as acid indigestion, acid reflux,
and Crohn's disease.
Arthritis symptoms primarily associated with osteoarthritis.
Osteoporosis - silica helps the body deposit calcium into bone rather
than into areas it shouldn't be. ....More
importantly, silica helps maintain proper bone collagen levels;
giving bones greater flexibility.
Arteriosclerosis - studies have shown that hardened arteries are
high in calcium and low in silica. ....Healthy,
flexible arteries are high in silica and low in calcium.
Skin, hair and nail disorders.
This is a diverse list, yet there is a common thread running through
them all — proper collagen production. Eidon manufactures and
distributes the finest liquid silica available anywhere.
is Eidon Silica Mineral Supplement
by Fred Elsner, Chief Chemist, Eidon, Inc.
Silica Mineral Supplement is a solution of silicic acid, Si(OH)4
in water - the concentration of which is approximately 2.5% by weight
(measured as silica, SiO2). Silicic acid is absorbed in the human
gastrointestinal (GI) tract and transported throughout the body
where it is used in the production and maintenance of collagen and
connective tissue. Animal studies have demonstrated that silica
is an essential trace element and that a deficiency of silica in
the diet can produce dramatic bone and cartilage abnormalities.
acid is stable in solution at very low concentrations, but will
combine to form oligomers at higher concentrations (above - 100ppm)
as shown in the following chemical equation:
that there is an equilibrium condition between silicic acid and
oligomers which means that as silicic acid is removed (i.e. absorbed
by the GI tract), the remaining oligomers break down to form additional
silicic acid. In this way, Eidon Silica Mineral Supplement will
provide as much silicic acid as the body demands. The particle size
of the oligomers is less than 10 nanometers which allows them to
be readily dispersed in solution. Eidon's Silica has a faint bluish
haze, owing to the tendency of these small particles to form larger
agglomerates, which can nonetheless be easily broken down to silicic
acid. The bluish haze is created because of the tendency of silica
oligomers to reflect the blue portion of the visible light spectrum,
similar to air or water molecules. During the production of Eidon's
Silica the pH is adjusted to be very close to neutral and typically
lies in the range of pH=7-8 (the typical pH of tap water, eggs or
crackers). Silicic acid is completely non-toxic.
of the most common symptoms of deficiency
are brittle nails, loss of hair, poor skin quality, Osteoporosis,
Arthritis and stomach ailments.
