Silica provides structure to all living things in the plant and animal kingdoms. Despite it being a trace mineral, it is essential for the proper function of the human body. It can be found in skin, hair, nails, cartilage, lungs, intestines and blood. An aqueous compound of oxygen and silicon silica is a natural elemental substance. Silica gives strength and support to all connective tissue (tendons, ligaments, cartilage, skin, blood vessels, hair and nails) and facilitates the deposition of calcium into bone.
QSilica is a biologically active colloidal silica dietary supplement providing silica in its purest, most potent form. Derived from quartz crystals, QSilica is a dietary Colloidal preparation a solution of extremely small, no diffusible particles suspended in water rendering a gel-like liquid. Since the human body is a colloidal system, QSilica is absorbed faster and more completely than other forms of silica when taken orally or applied to the skin surface. So, more active silica is on its way to help smooth skin and maintain elasticity normally lost through aging and poor dietary habits.
The benefits of extra silica in the body
Silica adds lustre and sheen to hair, helps harden nails, heals acne, cuts, scalds, skin injuries and superficial wounds. To strengthen connective tissue an adequate supply of active silica is important.
So What is silica? Silica is a naturally occurring mineral important for the health of our connective tissue, skin, hair, nails, bones and joint cartilage. It also plays a key role in the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. Since the body uses silica every day, it is important to have a reliable supply.
How does Qsilica work? Biologically Active Qsilica is different to most other silica supplements. It is a colloidal solution of microscopic particles of mineral silica, highly dispersed in water to form a natural gel. Because the human body is a colloidal system, Biologically Active Qsilica is easily and quickly absorbed in the body to help strengthen and support the connective tissue. As a dietary supplement Biologically Active Qsilica helps maintain the elasticity of skin, diminish the appearance of wrinkles and support the incorporation of calcium into bones.
What is connective tissue? Connective tissue surrounds the organs and blood vessels of the body. It is also found in skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, joint cartilage and capsules, nerve tissue, intervertebral discs of the spinal column, and intestinal and stomach walls. Human skin consists of three layers the outer epidermis, the middle dermis (which contains the taut connective tissue) and the deeper hypodermis (fatty tissue containing connective tissue). Qsilica provides a beneficial effect on the structure of biologically aged skin and may increase the dermal thickness and fullness of the skin, can help to diminish the appearance of wrinkles.
