Product Details

What is Silica?

Silica is a premium-quality supplement featuring standardized horsetail extract, naturally rich in silica and antioxidants. Silica is a common ingredient used in many supplement formulas for hair, skin and nails.

Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a primitive, perennial plant closely related to the fern. It has hollow stems, tooth-like leaves and shoots sometimes compared to asparagus. When the plant dries, the branches feather outward and silica crystals form inside the stems. Today, scientists believe the health-promoting properties of horsetail are due to its silica content.*

Silica, also known as silicon dioxide, is a trace mineral. In addition to being formed in dried horsetail stems, it’s also found in cereals, rice and grasses. It’s also present in small amounts in bones, teeth and other body tissues.
