What does silicon do?
The best documented function of silicon is that it facilitates bone calcification and bone mineralization. This means that the body cannot assimilate and make use of calcium without the presence of silicon, making it an important nutrient for people concerned about supporting healthy bone density and strength.
Silicon to fight the physical effects of aging.
Aging starts deep within your cells, which contain collagen, the binding element that literally holds your body together. As you age, collagen deteriorates and loses its natural elasticity, resulting in loose skin, thinning hair and brittle nails. Since silicon is one of the main components of collagen, a soluble silicon supplement such as Florasil can help to prevent these effects of aging.
According to an article appearing in the Swedish newspaper, Halsoblast, Joan Collins, Goldie Hawn and Barbara Streisand all credit their youthful appearance to vegetal silica, which provides the silicon in Florasil
The Florasil Guarantee
Florasil carries a Drug Identification Number (DIN) which means that the label must reflect the elemental measure (weight) of the medicinal ingredients in this case, silicon. When a product does not carry a DIN, the label will reflect the capsule net weight, which also includes the weight of ingredients that are not active. Each capsule of Florasil provides 410mg of spring horsetail extract, which supplies 10mg of the compound mineral silica, providing 4.7mg of the medicinal ingredient-elemental silicon.
Always read the label and use as directed. If symptoms persist, contact your health professional.
