Vitacost Natural Silica with Bioflavonoids - Horsetail Extract -- 500 mg - 120 Tablets

Popular supplement for hair skin and nails. Features premium-quality silica from standardized horsetail extract. Naturally rich in antioxidants!   What is Vitacost Natural Silica?  . Vitacost Natural Silica is a premium-quality supplement featuring standardized horsetail extract naturally rich in silica and antioxidants. Silica is a common ingredient used in many supplement formulas for hair skin and nails.  . Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a primitive perennial plant closely related to the fern. It has hollow stems tooth-like leaves and shoots sometimes compared to asparagus. When the plant dries the branches feather outward and silica crystals form inside the stems. Today scientists believe the health-promoting properties of horsetail are due to its silica content.*.  . Silica also known as silicon dioxide is a trace mineral. In addition to being formed in dried horsetail stems it’s also found in cereals rice and grasses. It’s also present in small amounts in bones teeth and other body tissues.  . How does Vitacost Natural Silica support health? Adequate silicon intake has been linked to healthy bone density*. Horsetail is comprised of flavonoids phenolic acids alkaloids and sterols which may contribute to its antioxidant properties*. Why choose Vitacost Natural Silica?

didn't digest for me
 October 6, 2013
"I happened to look down my stool one day and noticed that these didn't digest at all. The formula is fine but I need a capsule with the same or similar formula. Then they'd be fine for me. It may be my age though I digest most other things OK."

it works for me
 October 2, 2012
"I use this product to help with my finger nails. Since I was a little girl, my nails have peeled & been extremely soft. As I entered post menopause, my nails got even worse & became very tender to the touch because they peeled almost half way down my nail bed. I use the horsetail (silica) along with biotin and my nails have greatly improved."
