Of all the minerals important for good health, Silica is by far the most underrated and misunderstood mineral of all. It is the seventh most prevalent element in human tissue after calcium. Research done in the 1970's by Dr. Edith Carlisle at the UCLA School of Public Health affirmed without any doubt the extreme importance of Silica. Her research showed Silica to be essential in collagen formation and connective tissue strength. Collagen is the tough fibrous material which holds our cells together and is the major component of everything from our bones to our skin.
The two primary functions of Silica based on research and experience are:
- Building and maintaining adequate and healthy collagen levels throughout the body
- Managing calcium usage and storage within the body
Silica deficiencies can occur when eating a diet of refined grains. Historically, the primary source of dietary Silica was the outside husks of grains. With the advent of the industrial revolution and the invention of the combine (a machine used to harvest grain), man for the first time could automatically remove grain husks. So, rather than being the staff of life, bread had the first of many essential mineral nutrients removed. As we all know, subsequent refinement of grain has, when eaten as white flour, become one of the scourges of modern society. All white bread contains virtually zero natural mineral nutrients, and when eaten, immediately converts into glucose (sugar). This is why you see on flour or bread packages a list of mineral additives. The flour refineries are trying to replace some of the minerals they have removed. These minerals pale in comparison to what was removed.
Supplementing with Silica can help to support:
- Healthy cartilage
- Joint function
- Strong bones
- Teeth and gums
- Gastrointestinal tissues
- Hair, skin and nails
- Collagen production
Food High in Silica:
Rice hulls, husks of whole grain, oats, millet, barley, rye, corn, potatoes, Jerusalem artichoke, red beets, asparagus, horsetail plant.
Eidon Liquid Minerals are All Natural, Highly Bioavailable and contain NO sugars, starch, artificial flavors, colors, preservatives or animal by-products. Vegan and Gluten-Free. Eidon uses the finest ingredients known to us in the formulation of our unique preparations. Out of respect for all life, we do not test - nor have we ever tested - our products on animals.
Obtaining the needed minerals via the food we eat is a chronic problem today. This is primarily due to our deficient soils and over processing and over cooking of our foods. Drinking ultra-purified water can also strip our body of these essential minerals. It is important to be aware of the fact that reverse osmosis and distilled water will actually act in reverse of what nature intended our water to do. Instead of being a mineral delivery system, the minerals are taken out of the water and this puts additional stress on the body tissue to compensate for the lack of minerals in the water. The minerals must then be taken from our healthy reserves in bone and muscle, thus leaving our system deficient and vulnerable. Replacement is essential!

I really like this product. I was a bit apprehensive at first, but I have since become a big fan. I don't know if it would help everyone, but it defiantly helps me! I like the benefits of this product and would recommend.

Save me from a neck lift!

HUGE skin improvements after only 10 days, seriously saved me from a neck lift, even others noticed! Wish it came in an even bigger bottle!
Liquid is better
Posted by LittlemissSunshine on 2nd Aug 2017
Bought it to see if nails hardened and hair grew any faster, but haven't noticed anything yet. But it has only been a few weeks into it. And liquid is always better assimilated than tablets.
Posted by iamhealed on 2nd Aug 2017
I like that this is a liquid and feel that it is a good product. I am taking it for my joints and cartilage, as well as my skin. It's hard to tell at this point if there is an actual improvement, but I will continue to take because of what I have read.
Simply the best Silica product

Simply the best product of it's type and it delivers everything it proclaims. Priced fairly.
Good results, No taste
Posted by Tilley on 2nd Aug 2017
I am taking this for my hair loss - nothing else has helped and this was recommended. I do not want to start using harsh chemicals. I have not used it long enough to say yay or nay, but I can tell you I was pleased to find it did not have a taste, and the price was the best I could find. I am keeping my fingers crossed!
I like the 18oz liquid instead of the 2oz drops - measuring a TBS is a lot easier than counting out 30 drops for me. The product has brought me good results and the price is very reasonable.
This really works.

My hair and nails are growing really fast and it's been helping with some of the pain in my connective tissues as well!
Posted by Andria Vargas on 21st Mar 2017
I confirmed how well this product works when I went on a 3 day trip without it. Immediately my neck was strained from who knows what. When I returned home, I got on the ball right away and within three days the pain was gone. I recommended this to my boyfriend and my mother and will keep using it.

So far, so good! Have been adding to our daily water!
A Convenient Product
Posted by Meredith Childress on 23rd Jun 2015
I've been using this product for a couple of weeks and so I can't say whether it's doing me good, but I can say that I love the ease of using it. I'll continue using it to see what changes I experience. I highly recommend it.
fantastic tarter control
Posted by Unknown on 6th Jun 2014
My dental hygienst always complained about the tarter buildup on my teeth. I started using Liquid Silica without telling her. She responded on my next visit, "There's little tarter buildup. What did you do?" I continue to have great check-ups.

My fingernails have been peeling and breaking and very thin for as long as I can remember. I found a great nail strengthener polish but the chemicals in it made my body and joints hurt bad. Sadly I had to let that polish go. A friend told me about liquid silica so I started taking a capfull once a day. It has been about a month and my nails, without polish, are long, strong and beautiful! Thank you Eidon for such a high quality product!

Silica, Magnesium, Multi and Bone Support
Posted by Jules Fox on 18th Feb 2013
I've never been prone to take supplements. I've always been a skeptic. Recently, however, I was convinced by a friend to try Eidon Ionic Minerals. Though in great health overall, I was having some toe cramps and had occasional issues that I pretty much ignored, including menopausal symptoms. Additionally I've always had weak short nails despite all attempts to strengthen them. To my surprise, the bounty of liquid minerals that I have been taking over the last couple of months has already shown results. The Eidon Magnesium has stopped my toe cramps, the liquid silica has done wonders for my nails and I can only believe that Bone Support and Multiple Minerals are shoring up any deficiencies that I may have had but didn't even realize. I am now a believer in liquid minerals and EIDON products, in particular. Thank you!
