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!

Taking quality supplements during my recovery from chronic Lyme has been a key component to my recovery. Eidons Ionic Minerals - Silica is one supplement that I will continue taking for life now that I understand how important it is for good health. If there is a discount for purchasing in a case quantity, please let me know.
Fast deliveryNo taste in coffee. Blends quite well. Wondering how long it takes to see a difference ;)
Great product and service
I love the fact that this can be added to drinking water making it simple to take. I add it to my son's water he packs for his day at work so he consistently consumes it.
Wanted a digestible silica for stronger bones and to help protect from environmental aluminum. This I add to my water mixed supplements.
I've been taking this brand of silica for several months and I love it. It can be added to any food or beverage and is tasteless. It is very efficient at strengthening teeth, bones, and fingernails. Other brands of silica that I have tried have contained trace amounts of mold toxins (possibly from the environment in the factory where they are made), so I was glad to find a silica that is pure and clean.
I was having leg cramps, hip pain, and acid reflux. When I called Eidon, it was recommended that I try Silica. Within 10 days, all of the symptoms had subsided. I've been using this mineral for 2 months now and all of the muscle pain and reflux issue
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!
My hair and nails are growing really fast and it's been helping with some of the pain in my connective tissues as well.
