Bamboo Silica is considered today’s fountain of youth ! Bamboo Silica is found in the nodes of a bamboo tree. Bamboo is an edible grass that has been part of the diet of human and animals alike for thousands of years. Bamboo Silica has been used traditionally as a rich source of naturally occurring, organic silica.
Silica is an essential element found in the earth’s crust. This trace mineral is rare in our diets because our food is processed and our soil is depleted by chemical treatments. Silica is known to slow the aging process. Bamboo has a high silica content. Its silica content can be as high as 85% or more than 10 times the level found in the widely used Horsetail plant that contains about 5 to 7%.
Collagen is mainly made up of Silica and if retained in the body can help your youthful appearance. The presence of silica in our bodies can maintain the luster in our hair, strength in our nails and the tone of our skin.
Besides silica, Alora Naturals Bamboo Silica contains calcium citrate, magnesium citrate and Vitamin D3 to aid in the absorption of Bamboo Silica. Studies suggest that Vitamin D3 is needed to absorb calcium and without Vitamin D, there will be insufficient calcium absorption and hence our body will look to use our calcium stores in the skeleton. Therefore it is vital to have both Vitamin D3 and calcium in our bamboo silica formula.
Like calcium, magnesium citrate plays an important role in bone health. This synergistic blending of mineral properties makes bamboo silica an excellent and effective re-mineralizing agent for skin, hair and nails. Because the skin is the largest organ in the body, it requires a balance of nutrients in order to stay healthy. The silica from bamboo extract improves skin health by helping the body absorb essential minerals such as calcium, potassium and magnesium.
Silica is one of the major collagen components, it enhances collagen synthesis in bones and joints. Organic silica found in bamboo grants more flexibility and mobility to joints, (wrists, hips, knees, and cervical spine). It alleviates articular pain by stimulating cellular rebuilding. It also beautifies hair with luster, regenerates the skin, strengthens finger nails and helps in the prevention of premature aging
