Silica is an essential element found in the skin, hair, nails, the aorta, connective tissue and the skeletal structure. There are various sources of organic silica found in nature, including but not limited to, root vegetables, unrefined grains, and plants such as bamboo and the horsetail plant.
Eurohealth’s organic silica comes from the horsetail plant (Equisetum Arvense), a perennial plant that grows 8 to 10 inches tall. This plant is a valuable medicinal compound largely because of its high silica content. It contains up to 70% silica, as well as other valuable minerals. The horsetail plant is harvested in the Spring due to its high content of organic silica. Organic silica containing 70% silica is approximately ten times more potent and far more effective at achieving healthy hair and skin, as well as strong bones, teeth and nails.
Dr. Louis Kervran, world-renowned inventor, lecturer and Nobel Prize nominee, developed Organic SILICA in the late 1960’s from horsetail plants harvested in the Spring and organically grown in France. His patented extraction method uses pure water and converts silicon dioxide (silica) into a bioavailable form of silicon that is easily assimilated (absorbed) by the human body. His method uses only pure water, no solvents.
NOTE: Some silica formulations on the marketplace including both extracts and powdered whole plants, are of the non-organic type, with little or no content of organic water soluble silica.
