Are You Getting Enough Silica?
For too many
people the answer is no, and the reason is the over-refining and
processing of our grains and cereals. With the removal of their
outer casing, valuable silica is lost. Without silica the skin loses
elasticity and hair and nails become brittle.
Can this be
prevented? Yes, the best way is to change the diet, but it takes
time to honour that commitment. Can something be done right away to
get a good start? Yes! Supplement that healthier way of eating with
Vegetal Silica, the only organic vegetal silica from the spring
horsetail plant that is chelated with bioflavonoids.
BioFlavonoids: the Key to Silica
and why from spring horsetail? Because chelated silica is the only
kind of silica the body can absorb and the spring horsetail has a
higher percentage of this silica than any other plant.
silica in Vegetal Silica is bonded or "chelated" to a group of
water-soluble bioflavonoids. These organic compounds take silica by
the hand, so to speak, and help it "swim" its way through the
intestinal wall into the bloodstream. Only silica chelated with
bioflavonoids will have the highest bioavailability and assimilation
by the body- approaching 100%.
Dr. Kervran's patented aqueous extract
of spring horsetail
Isn't every silica product like that? No. It
requires a very special extraction process to keep that bond with
the bioflavonoids intact. There is only one process that does this;
the one patented by Professor Dr. Louis Kervran, former research
scientist at the University of Paris. He devised the atomized
aqueous extraction process, whereby the organic vegetal silica is
extracted from spring horsetail using water instead of chemicals.
Only vegetal silica produced in this manner has been researched and
proven effective and completely safe. Only Flora's Vegetal Silica is
produced according to Dr. Kervran's patented method and meets all
