I knew that silica was important to promote healthy bones, but until I did more research I did not realize it also helps heal wounds and build connective tissue, supports cardiovascular health and revitalizes skin, hair and nails!
Aside from being present in collagen and osteoblasts, silica is also found in the thymus, liver, blood, heart, muscle and skin.
However, the silica content of these tissues decreases with age, or, with diseases in these tissues.
I find silica fantastic for yet another issue: Sometimes I get this pain in my thumb joint. Especially after working for several hours of manual labor – like building a fence, or shoveling manure. Some people might think it was arthritis, but my gut told me it’s because I was missing a mineral – that I needed more due to my workload. That’s when I started researching and the lightbulb went off when I hit silica.
So when I take this QuikPlus Silica, the pain and soreness in my thumb joint is relieved within an hour or so. If I take it before I do heavy work, then I don’t get the soreness, weakness or pain at all. This is a game-changer because sometimes my thumb joint would be so sore it was painful to lift a glass of water! And because the absorption of atom-sized minerals is so fast (directly in to cell channels, no digestion required) I felt the difference very quickly.
Note: there is a good dose of this silica in the QuikPlus Bone Matrix blend. But if you have joint pain, or brittle nails, thin hair etc then consider supplementing with extra as well. I add it to my herbal tea, shake, Emergen-C, or my water bottle.
Can I Use QuikPlus Minerals with Absorb Plus?
Yes! Keep in mind that all the minerals and vitamins in Absorb Plus are formulated for someone to be able to take a maximum of 12 servings per day, so to get a daily therapeutic dose you would need to be consuming five shakes per day. Remember, it was formulated to be consumed as an elemental, sole food source.
So while there is some silica in Absorb Plus, you can definitely add more to meet your needs.
QuikPlus Silica atom-sized, ionic liquid mineral is in the most ideal size/form for absorption of all mineral forms because it does not require digestion. Like all the QuikPlus minerals, QP Silica can be absorbed simply by holding in your mouth; absorbing through the mucosal tissue.
Silica is an important mineral for skin, hair, joint, cartilage and bone health.
Dosage: 50 drops per day in 6-8 oz (or 1 cup) of water, juice, soup, tea, shake, or smoothie.
Gentle on the bowel: This atom-sized silica doesn’t require digestion as its nano size (less than 250 picometers) means it can be absorbed directly into your cells.
