Description

What is Silica?

Silica contains silicon and oxygen, two of the most abundant elements in the earth’s crust. Even though you can obtain silicon from dietary sources, consuming a modern diet may lead to silicon deficiencies in your body because processed foods and fruits and vegetables grown in depleted soil have reduced amounts of this trace mineral. Silicon plays a vital role supporting the production of collagen in the body. Collagen is a protein responsible for connective tissues such as tendons, cartilage and ligaments. Your skin, hair and nails also depend on collagen to remain healthy.

  • Silica can impact the absorption of Vitamin B-1 (also called thiamine or thiamin) in your body. If supplementing with Vitamin B1, do take these separately and avoid long-term silica supplementation.
  • Silica acts as a diuretic. Do not combine with other diuretics (including water pills), or take if you have low potassium levels.
  • For the previous reason, please also increase your water intake to prevent dehydration and keep washing for low potassium levels.
  • Prolonged silica supplementation may lead to a buildup of extra silica within the body, and affect the kidneys. Only small quantities are required.
  • Silica supplements can enhance some medications, so it’s important to tell your doctor about any prescription or over-the-counter medications you take before taking them.
