Hair and nails:
Silica is generally taken as supplement to achieve stronger hair and nails, and enhance elasticity of skin. Silicon is necessary for our bodies to create collagen that improves elasticity of skin. People experiencing hair loss normally have low silicon in their hairs, thus supplementation can result in thicker, fuller and glossier hair. People with thinning hair and brittle nails can benefit from supplementing with bamboo silica
Bones and joints:
Silica supports production of collagen in the body which is also very necessary for bone health, increasing connective tissue, providing flexibility to joints.
