What is Silica? | Optimize Your Workout

When we think about nourishing our bodies with performance supplements, we often focus on products that boost our energy levels, optimize our caloric intake, and increase our protein intake. However, one important aspect that often goes overlooked is our joint, ligament, and bone health. For the extra boost your joints and muscles need, we recommend a silica supplement. But what is silica, and how can it help you during a workout?What is silica?

When we’re young and our bodies are naturally more limber, it’s easy to forget that we need support for every aspect of our bodies, especially for people who follow a consistent exercise regimen. If you don’t take measures to provide the nutrients that your joints, ligaments, muscles, and bones need, you are more likely to injure yourself during physical activity.

Here at Vibrant Nutraceuticals, we develop supplements to provide the support you need to help maintain healthy bodily function, even through tough workouts. 


What is Silica?

Silica is a naturally-occurring trace mineral composed of silicon and oxygen that plays an essential role in collagen production. Since our bodies don’t create more silica on its own, we need to supplement silica in our diet or by taking a daily dose. 

Healthy collagen production can lead to stronger hair and nails, and more youthful-looking skin. It can be found in many types of foods like leafy greens and brown rice, but it can be hard to monitor your silica intake from diet alone. That’s why we typically recommend a daily silica supplement like Silica Plus – a tasteless, liquid form of silica that can be added into your morning coffee or tea, glass of water, protein shakes, pre-workouts, you name it!

Bone and Joint Support During Exercise

There are more than just aesthetic benefits that come from supporting collagen production. According to Livestrong, “besides improving skin elasticity, collagen is an important component of bone structure — without enough of it, your bones can lose density and strength, which is why silica is thought to be good for your skeleton.” In the same way, collagen can help improve the strength and integrity of your joints and connective tissue.
