Natural Factors Silica Aqueous Extract 500 mg
Although the exact biological role for silicon has not been determined, it appears to be required for proper integrity of the skin, ligaments, tendons, and bone. Silicon appears to be required for the proper functioning of an enzyme (prolyl hydroxylase) which functions in the formation of collagen in bone, cartilage, and other connective tissues.
Horsetail (Equisetum arvens) is used medicinally because it contains silica, which has a part in strengthening and maintaining bone and connective tissue by promoting collagen production at the cellular level. Although silica is plentiful in the natural world, the body is often deficient because of its low absorption rate. Silica has been recommended to speed recovery from broken bones and torn ligaments, to aid blood clotting for sufferers of nosebleeds and wounds, and for healthy skin, hair, and fingernails. Horsetail is also antibacterial and astringent, can be helpful for bladder problems, and makes it harder for us to absorb aluminum.
