Silicon - the mineral for beauty and youth
Although silicon or silica (silicic acid) is a trace element and is only needed in small quantities, it is nevertheless extremely important for health and beauty. In fact, silicon is contained in every body tissue and a key mineral used in the formation of collagen and elastin. As a result, it is extremely important for the construction of connective tissue and thus the entire body structure.
Bamboo is currently the most abundant source of natural organic silicon. It has a silicon content of roughly 70%, which is also responsible for the bamboo plant's strength and suppleness.
In contrast to this, field horsetail (also called horseradish, scrub or simply horsetail) has a silicon content of 5-7%. As a result, bamboo silicon supplies 10 times more silicon.
Bamboo extract is obtained from the leaves or resin of the bamboo plant. Bamboo is the fastest growing tree in the world, growing a fully one-third faster than the next-fastest growing tree.
When extracting silicon from bamboo, only water and alcohol are used. No synthetic solvents are used. The alcohol evaporates during the extract's gentle drying process and is not present in the final product.
Bamboo Silica capsules are suitable for replenishing depleted silicon stores as well as maintaining a healthy silicon content in the tissue.
Our body metabolizes silicic acid constantly, which consumes about 10 to 40 mg of silicon daily. This amount is used for skin regeneration, repair processes in the body, the growth of nails and hair, or is lost through the urine and stool. That's why this is the minimum amount of silicon that should be supplied with food.
The intake of silicic acid capsules such as Bamboo Silica can quickly eliminate silicon deficiency and replenish silicon deposits of the body. They are also ideal to satisfy the daily silicon needs.
Silicon can be found in certain vegetables such as onions, beetroots and potatoes, as well as in different whole grain cereals such as oats, millet and barley. However, fertilizers can impede the absorption of silicon from the soil into the plant.
The absorption of silicon is furthermore strongly impeded by the high fiber content of vegetables and grains because silicon is bound by cellulose contained therein. The absorption of silicon also decreases due to the age-related decreased production of digestive enzymes in the intestine.
That's why the actual absorption of silicon is often much less than we assume although in theory the food that we take contains sufficient quantities of silicon.
The silicon reserves in newborns are full. However, they decrease constantly with age if sufficient quantities of silicon are not supplied with food. The first signs of an insufficient supply of silicon become visible and noticeable starting from 40 years of age.
Aging cannot be prevented. But you can delay the aging process with a sufficient supply of silicon. That's why silicon is an essential component of anti-aging programs.
Silicon should be taken daily over a period of at least 3 to 6 months. This time is necessary to compensate for a possible silicon deficiency and to demonstrate visible and tangible effects of silicon supply.
You will first notice the positive effects of the increased silicon supply when your finger- and toenails become stronger, the hair becomes thick, glossy and grows faster, the skin becomes more elastic, smoother and firmer, and the existing blemishes and acne fade away quickly.
