Silica is required for healthy collagen and connective tissue throughout the body.* Silica-20 features a superior form of silica from the horsetail plant, plus beneficial trace minerals from the sea.
A proprietary extraction process preserves the silica and beneficial flavonoids while filtering out harsh, unnecessary compounds.
Cutting-edge science has shown that silica is as important, if not more so, than calcium and magnesium for healthy bone density. In fact, bone formation is dependent on adequate silica.*

Frequently Asked Questions
There are food sources of silica, but very little of it is absorbed during digestion. In fact, you’d probably have to eat 50 bananas just to get about 8 mg of absorbed silica. So a supplemental source is a must. In fact, in Europe, silica is more popular than calcium for bone support. Considering that silica does even more than support bone density and strength, it is a sensible supplemental choice for joints, hair, skin, and nails, too.*
Yes. A randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study of 65 women over 12 months revealed that Silica-20 supported bone health and strength, along with a healthy balance of minerals in bones. Another Silica-20 study with 150 individuals showed support for healthy bone-building activity. Doctors reported that in 80 percent of participants, significant indicators of bone health support were evident after 15 days of use, and further gains were measurable after 6 weeks of use.*
