Double Action: Silicea Gel

Thursday, May 20th 2004

Hair, skin and nails are the most visible parts of our body. We want them to be beautiful because they play such an important role in how we view our healthy image. Their appearance affects how we feel, how we look at ourselves and how we relate to others in a social context.

If you were asked to point out the largest organ of the body, would you say the liver? You would be quite wrong. The correct answer would be the skin - the body's largest organ. Skin, hair and nails are the living cover that often shows on the outside how well we are inside!

The presence of silica in our body can maintain the lustre in our hair, the strength of our nails and our skin tone.

Silica Gel can care for the skin in a unique way like no other skin care. It is a general tonic that increases the strength and elasticity of the skin against outside influences. Silica gel can be used internally and externally as it has a double action on damaged skin by restoring skin vitality both ways.

Externally, silica may be effective for itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, calluses, warts, eczema, corns, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores. Skin injuries and burns appear to heal more quickly and without complications. Ulcers including varicose ulcers can be positively influenced by silica.

In 1901, researcher Hugo Schulz stated that there could be no connective tissue without silica.

Colloidal Silica Gel has the ability to bind bacteria and wound secretions. The colloidal silica is absorbed very well by injured skin and stimulates the growth of new tissue. This dual activity of silica gel speeds up wound healing.

Colloidal silica gel answers all the demands of a silica product - easy to take and absorb and convenient to store in the refrigerator. It can be ingested undiluted or diluted in a glass of water and is very easy for people who have problems taking tablets or capsules and the gel has a neutral taste.
