Silica is often called the ‘beauty mineral’ because it helps rejuvenate the collagen in your body and reverse some of the effects of aging by maintaining the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Silica is needed for the continuous formation of collagen for the maintenance of healthy bones, tooth enamel, cartilage, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and joints.
Florasil® is an organic vegetal silica supplement that helps provide the silica you need. A unique product is plant-based, made from the spring horsetail plant, Florasil® is the only vegetal silica supplement that is bonded with bioflavonoids, which help the silica make its way through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream.
Florasil® is produced according to Dr. Louis Kervran’s patented extraction method, whereby organic vegetal silica is extracted from spring horsetail, using water instead of chemicals. Only silica prepared in this gentle manner yields a highly bioavailable silicate in the form of orthosilicic acid.
This extraction method not only preserves the bioflavonoids necessary for the effective absorption of silica, but it ensures the retention of a spectrum of naturally occurring beneficial minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, boron, iron and phosphorus.
