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, performed at the UCLA School of Public Health, showed silica to be essential in collagen formation and connective tissue strength. Collagen is the tough fibrous material which holds us together and is the major component of everything from our bones to our skin. Supplementation with this essential element may improve or alleviate many of the following diverse symptoms:
Calcium deposits on bone, in joints, and in soft tissues (calcium mismanagement).
Teeth and gum disease, and structural failure.
Gastrointestinal problems such as acid indigestion, acid reflux, and Crohn's disease.
Arthritis symptoms primarily associated with osteoarthritis.
Osteoporosis - silica helps the body deposit calcium into bone rather than into areas it shouldn't be. More importantly, silica helps maintain proper bone collagen levels; giving bones greater flexibility.
Arteriosclerosis - studies have shown that hardened arteries are high in calcium and low in silica. Healthy, flexible arteries are high in silica and low in calcium.
Skin, hair and nail disorders.
This is a diverse list, yet there is a common thread running through them all: proper collagen production. Eidon manufactures and distributes the finest liquid silica available anywhere.

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 strengthern 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!

After six weeks,the dryness in my skin and eyes is 200% better. I was becoming desperate with the dryness in my eyes! My nails are stronger and my hair shinier probably b. my scalp is producing some oil that gets brushed down and/or it prevent dehydration. Other people noticed. A must for health. I take supplements and herbs and there are very few I would say are a must.

I have been using Liquid Silica for 3+ years and it is a great product for hair growth, skin tone, and bone strength. I can immediately tell the difference when I go more than a week without taking it.

My hair and Skin
Posted by Tracy on 18th Feb 2013
I have been using silica primarily for osteoporosis and to help with my skin as I have the tendency to break out. Although I have not seen a HUGE improvement with my skin...it's overall healing time is less than it has been. As for my osteoporosis, I will be getting another DEXA scan in February 2011 and look forward to the results. However, I was at my hairdresser yesterday, and without changing a think with my hair program, he told me that he has never seen my hair feel so thick and healthy. The silica is the only thing that I can contribute that to. I've also noticed that I have to get my nails shortened more often because they are growing so fast.
I just started taking the Multi-Minerals to ensure that I am getting some calcium in my diet as well. After starting the Eidon minerals supplementation and changing my diet to be eating more collard greens, almond milk, and natural calcium foods,I just wanted to make sure that my intake was sufficient. Like I said, the proof with be in the results of the DEXA scan....stay tuned.
In the meantime, I have my mother on the Eidon Silica as well.
Thank you for making this available and for getting the info out there that it's not all about calcium calcium calcium for bone health.....in fact, I have read that Americans have the highest calcium intakes and also the highest level of osteoporosis....very scary!!

Texture and thickness of hair improved immensely
Posted by Ahriel on 18th Feb 2013
I've been using the Eidon Silica Concentrate formula for only two weeks and already I've noticed profound and wonderful results.The texture and thickness of my hair has improved immensely in addition to becoming amazingly shiny. My nails are stronger and growing very quickly. The calcium deposits that I had on my teeth for years are disappearing and my skin is becoming more beautiful and youthful each day. I'm also giving the Silica to my dog and her health is improving as a result. Her coat is healthy, shiny and soft, she no longer has flaky skin and her teeth are getting healthier. I'm so glad this product exists and I'm glad Eidon decided to create Silica in this concentrated form. The high Mgs make all the difference in the world. I'll be using this product for life and now I'm looking forward to trying the other minerals that Eidon offers. Thank you for creating this high quality supplement!

Silica solved my Vet bill dilemma
Posted by Cyndi Montgomery on 18th Feb 2013
have been using Eidon silica for years and absolutely love it. Recently, I had reason to love it even more. My adult cat Henry, had a urinary blockage and I did not have the money for a vet. I began giving him a full dropper of silica every few hours, combined with Hylands homeopathic Bladder formula. Within a day I could tell he was feeling better, and within three days, he was back to his normal self. I now add silica to both my cat's food nightly, in hopes of avoiding future trouble.

12% Bone Density Improvement
Posted by J. Unsicker on 18th Feb 2013
After taking a prescription drug that had osteoporosis as a side effect (not to exclude my age and genetics perhaps being a factor), I did not get a good report on my spinal bone density test; I was under the average for my age.
Subsequently, I attended a seminar on bone health conducted by Valerie Hall, a nutritionist who works through Mothers Markets. After discussing my problems with her, she recommended I take five strontium tablets every a.m. and two tablespoons of the liquid silica in the p.m. After following that regime faithfully for two years, I was ecstatic that a later bone density test showed that my spinal bone density had improved 12 percent.That was a year ago. I continue with the routine daily and look forward to seeing the results in another year. Meanwhile, THANK YOU liquid silica and strontium.:)Just wanted you to know!

Both my mother and I have hands so wrinkled that young ones have asked, "What happened to your hands?". After less than one week, my hands are looking better than they ever have. I am astonished. Can't wait to see what they will look like in a month. Vitamin E helped but nothing like this.
