Dr. Susan’s Health Tip: Silica for Beauty

flower2_171254804Do you want to have healthy hair, strong bones and nails and beautiful skin? Then silica should be part of your daily nutritional program!

Research studies have shown that silica is a critical ingredient in healthy bones and is essential for the production of collagen, the main connective tissue of your body. It is also used by the body to make protein complexes that are needed for strong and healthy skin, hair and nails.

Silica helps to thicken fine hair and reverse greying. It is very important to have an adequate intake of silica if your hair is thin and brittle. Silica is also necessary for healthy wound healing after injury or surgery.

Be sure to eat beets, leafy green vegetables, whole grains and soybeans, which are naturally rich sources of silica. Silica is also found abundantly in the herb horsetail. If you would like to take silica as a supplement, I recommend 10 – 30 mg of silica each day. Love, Dr. Susan
