The secret to healthy hair, skin, and nails is collagen. There are several collagen supplements on the market that are geared toward treating signs of aging, but we have a different approach here at Vibrant Nutraceuticals by offering a silica supplement instead –. Silica Plus.
Silica is essential for boosting the natural collagen production in your body and works to support not only your hair, skin, and nails, but also your joints, muscles, and cartilage.
The Importance of Silica in Collagen Production
Collagen is a naturally occurring structural protein that makes up the framework or your cells and tissues, and can be found in connective tissue, skin, tendons, bones, and cartilage. But just as collagen provides the frame, silica provides the “glue.”
Silica works to strengthen and mobilize the collagen structure. As we age, collagen production slows down allowing for wrinkles in the skin, thinning hair, and weakened joints. Taking a daily silica supplement may help support these areas by working to increase collagen production in the body.
Benefits of a Daily Silica Supplement
Silica is naturally occurring and, in the right form, safe for consumption. While it’s beneficial to our bodies, we don’t create it naturally on our own – it must be ingested. Eating silica-rich foods like kale, spinach, and brown rice can help, but silica doesn’t have a very high percentage of bioavailability. This means that only a small percentage of silica enters the bloodstream upon consumption.
A daily silica supplement can increase the amount of silica absorbed into your system and, therefore, collagen production. We recommend Silica Plus – our tasteless, liquid form of silica that is easy to add to anything – from your morning latte to your pre workout.
