Silica is naturally present in skin, bones, and teeth. The silica that Freeda uses is derived from a plant called the horsetail plant which is rich in silica. There are some nutritionists who suggest that the horsetail plant may have diuretic properties and may help keep the urinary tract healthy. The silica in the horsetail plant may play a role in increasing bone density as it helps the body absorb calcium. Silica also helps form collagen which is an important part of connective tissue, skin, bones, and cartilage.* Note: Large doses of silica may interfere with vitamin B1, therefore taking a B complex supplement may be recommended when taking a silica supplement. People on certain medications should not take silica. Women who are pregnant or lactating should not take silica. Serving Size: 1 Tablet Ingredients
