The key to health is eliminating toxicities and deficiencies! - Dr. William R. Kellas

Essential Silica Formula

Silica is One of the Most Overlooked Super-Star Nutrients That You Can Give Your Body!

staying youngIn our youth, our tissues absorb and maintain high levels of silica — enabling our bodies to remain flexible, resilient (able to heal quickly), and energetic — but as we age and because our food contains less and less silica, our silica levels steadily decline.

When it comes to staying young, silica is superb for hydrating tissues and ensuring they're tight, healthy and firm. Our Essential Silica Formula gives you all the benefits of silica combined with the unique delivery power of Cellfood.

Here is a list of what you need to know about Silica:

silica decreases over time
  • Silicon (the third most abundant mineral in the body after iron and zinc), along with Vitamin C, sulfur, boron and the key amino acids, enables collagen formation for keeping youthful skin, bones, joints, muscles, and connective tissue. Virtually nothing is more important for maintaining health and vitality than collagen formation.
  • Silica is silicon dioxide and is GRAS (Generally recognized as safe), meaning it's safe to eat.
  • Silicon levels decrease with aging (see graph) because our digestive powers decrease with age. Silicon levels drop drastically before one is 30 years old (about the time that enzyme digestive power drops) and never recover, but continues to be poorly absorbed.
  • Studies show that silica counteracts the effects of aluminum on the body and therefore may be important in supporting neurological health.
  • Silica, along with other trace minerals, is needed to strengthen bones and increase collagen production. Without Silica integrity of these tissues is not possible.
  • Cellfood Essential Silica Formula contains easy-to-absorb silica plus many other trace minerals required for healthy bones, joints, skin, hair, muscles and connective tissue. It can be added to any beverage.
  • Silica is an essential beauty mineral that helps support teeth, hair, and nails. It is also well known for its anti-aging, anti-wrinkle properties due to its ability to help form collagen and repair damaged or loose skin.
  • Supplementation with Silica can help form strong teeth and gums.
  • Finally, our Liquid Silica contains a good amount of antioxidizing and nourishing CellFood™.

Frequently Asked Questions About Essential Silica Formula

What Is Unique About Our Essential Silica Formula?

The chief difference is that our silica formulation is in an easily absorbed liquid that contains CellFood enzymes and trace minerals for increased absorption.

At What Age Should You Start Taking Essential Silica Formula Complex Supplement?

You should start when you turn 30 years old. Some people should have started in their late 20s.

What are Signs of Silica Deficiency?

As we age, our silica levels steadily decline, and we begin to exhibit the traditional signs of aging - including bone, joint and cartilage deterioration; dry, distressed skin; brittle nails, thinning hair, and tooth and gum loss. Especially, hair and nails become brittle and loses their shine. Longitudinal ridges on the nails are a tell-tale sign.

Tissues That May Most Benefit From Silica

Please note Silica may be contrindicated for some people, so check with your physician. These discussioins of benefits are not claims, but are observations found in limited studies and anecdotal accounts. It will take another millenia of time before we know enough about the human body to make definitive health benefit claims, and even then, uniqueness makes everyone's health needs different. We, like you, are looking for possible ways to extend youth. So, we explore and share interesting observations. Click on the tissue types below:

  • Silicon has shown to be essential for the formation of articular cartilage.
  • Silicon is a cross-linking agent in the glycosaminoglycan network which attracts and holds water in the joint.
  • Silicon acts as a regulating factor in bone mineralization.
  • Silicon stimulates DNA synthesis in osteoblast-like bone forming cells.
  • Silicon inhibits osteoclast mediated bone reabsorption in vitro.
  • The synthesis of collagen, the fibrous protein which is essential for the flexibility of the bone, is decreased by Silicon deficiency.
  • The synthesis of collagen, a major compound in tendons and ligaments, is decreased by Silicon deficiency.
  • The activity of prolylhydroxylase, a specific enzyme for collagen synthesis, was shown to be Silicon dependent in vitro.
  • Silicon makes the inner lining of arterial tissue (tunica intima) less permeable. In the case of a high cholesterol diet, Silicon supplementation reduces the occurrence of artherosclerotic lesions in blood vessels.
  • The aorta and the carotid artery of healthy persons contain approximatively 10 times more Silicon compared to arteries with artherosclerotic lesions
  • Silicon is important for optimal collagen synthesis
  • Silicon is crucial for activating the hydroxylation enzymes for crosslinking collagen, which improves the strength and elasticity of this fibrous protein. Better collagen means better skin, more elasticity and fewer wrinkles.
  • The outer shaft of hair, that provides elasticity and strength, is rich in Silicon. Hair with higher Silicon content tends to fall out less and has more shine and luster.
  • Silicon stimulates DNA synthesis in osteoblast-like bone forming cells.
  • Silicon inhibits osteoclast mediated bone reabsorption in vitro.
  • The synthesis of collagen, the fibrous protein which is essential for the flexibility of the bone, is decreased by Silicon deficiency.
  • Silicon is one of the predominant minerals in nails. A sign that Silicon may be systematically deficient is brittle and soft nails.
  • Silicon improves the nail quality which results in a better protection against nail infections.
  • Silicon restores mucosa in the respiratory tract in case of dehydration.

Why is Silica No Longer in Our Diets?

Whole grain foods could be a good, natural source of silicon, except for two problems.

  • First, the silicon from grains is insoluble and cannot be directly absorbed in the gastro-intestinal tract without good digestve enzymes and gastric juices, which many people do not have. Ordinarily, silicon in food is solubilized by stomach acid into orthosilicic acid, which absorbs directly through the stomach wall and the intestine into the blood. Unfortunately, lower stomach acidity, whether due to illness or age, diminishes people's ability to metabolize silicon from food sources. Anyone over the age of 30 will have a decreased capacity to convert dietary silicates into bioavailable orthosilicic acid.
  • Second, the refining and processing of food, which removes silicon-containing fibers, contributes to a lower dietary silicon intake. Additionally, many of the additives used in the food industry interfere with the uptake of silicon. In fact, these additives can (a) increase the gastric pH and thereby decrease the rate of hydrolysis of dietary silicates, (b) promote polymerization of orthosilicic acid and (c) chelate minerals in general which are then eliminated through the intestinal tract without absorption.
  • Third, mineral deficient soils no longer have as much silicon as they used. Mono-crop farming and the application of minimal fertilizers to soils tends to ensure that orthosilicic acid is not available to the plants. Consequently these crops will have a lower silicon concentration and contribute less to the dietary silicon intake compared to crops which have been cultivated on a natural, mineral rich soil.
  • Given all these factors, it is not surprising that silicon supplementation may be useful for staying young (a Fountain of Youth secret). Our product, Essential Silica Formula, comes in a highly assimilable format that can be added to any beverage.
