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 Supplement based on research and experience are:
- Building and maintaining 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.

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 am a 57-year-old woman. One side affect of menopause was the thinning of my hair. I noticed the hair around my temples was receding and getting very fine. My eyebrows were also thinning and much to my dismay, I was actually losing my hair! I began to supplement with Eidon's Silica about 1 year ago. Since then, I have had a 100% turnaround in hair growth. After only one month of taking a tablespoon of Silica daily, the hair around my temples began to come in fine and fuzzy like a new baby's hair! My eyebrows began growing again. Now, after one year of taking a daily dose, my hair has regained all of its luster, thickness and shine. I have shared these results with my painting class and they too are beginning to enjoy the many different aspects of this amazing mineral. One lady in particular has not only seen similar results with her own hair but also the relief from eczema that seemed to begin about the same time as her thinning hair. Silica indeed will be kept at the top of my list from now on!
After taking a prescription drug that had osteoporosis as a side effect, I was below average for my age on my spinal bone density test. I had attended a seminar on bone health at Mother's Market in the past and remembered they suggested I take 5 Strontium tablets every a.m. and 2 tablespoons of Eidon Liquid Silica in the p.m. After following that regime faithfully for two years, I was ecstatic that a later test showed that my spinal bone density had improved! I continue with this routine daily and look forward to seeing the results in another year. Meanwhile, THANK YOU liquid silica. I wanted you to know!
I have just started using this product & I feel that it is very much improving how I feel.
I bought this for my mom who is 87. Most week days I check on her before I leave for work. Normally she still asleep. But now some mornings I noticed she is up and dressed when I come to check on her.
I read about what silica could do for me and have been taking it for several months, but the past few months I've been taking multiple servings in a day and have experienced things with greater impact than I thought. I've needed assistance walking for several years now and was told many times this would only get worse. I've tried many things to help heal but was seeing and feeling the most from silica. I've been able to perform small tasks by myself and it feels amazing mentally, emotionally and physically. The improvement I've felt and being able to get some of my mobilty back is nothing no one else could give me. I'm very grateful to Eidon and it's wonderful staff for helping me out and providing a quality product which the body can easily absorb. You have a customer for life and we think of you as family. My husband also feels better in his joints, which used to crack every day and each morning. He no longer sounds like snap, crack, pop. He also says he feels better throughout his work shift and isn't in as much joint pain when he is finished. I've also seen him more active and have more get up and go. We use silica along with multiple minerals and B supplement from Eidon. Thanks again for adding life to us again when our bodies said no. This will be a fun adventure to feel the progession we will have as we continue to take the silica.
I highly rate and recommend this silica product.
I go through so much of this stuff. It's truly wonderful!
Great product. I use it each and every day.
Little taste & feeling much better I take this everyday
