What is Bio-Silica-MSM?
Bio-Silica-MSM is tablets each providing 750 mg of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) and 1,5 mg of organically bound silica from Horsetail extract.
As we age, our connective tissue loses some of its strength and elasticity, causing our skin to sag and wrinkle and our nails to become brittle. The content of organic silica in Bio-Silica-MSM supports the maintenance of skin, hair and nails.
What is MSM?
MSM is short for methylsulfonylmethane also known as sulphur in its biologically active form. MSM is a naturally occurring organic substance found in plants and also found in our body. In the body sulfur is included in various amino acids. Normally we excrete between 4 and 11 milligrams of the substance per day with the urine.
MSM is often taken in supplemental form together with glucosamine preparations. MSM is white, odorless, and have a slightly bitter taste.
What is Silica?
Silica is a mineral commonly found in nature as quartz. It is inorganic and is hardly absorbed in the body. However, the plant Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) is a rich source of organically bound silicon, which the body can easily absorb. The mineral silica is normally found in our bones, teeth, connective tissue, blood vessels, skin, hair, and nails and in fact in all cells of the body in different concentrations.
The EU Food Safety Agency (EFSA) has evaluated the evidence behind the product's content of Horsetail (Equisetum arvense) and has acknowledged the following statement:
- Equisetum arvense contributes to the maintenance of skin, hair and nails
