While silica is present in trace amounts in the human body, it is crucial for cell growth and found in nearly every tissue, with a concentration in areas like hair, nails, and connective tissues, especially the skin. Despite no specific Dietary Reference Values (DRV) for silica, nutritionists stress the importance of a daily intake through our diet.
Silica contributes to the structure and resilience of connective tissue and appears to play a vital role in the synthesis of bone and cartilage collagen.
Lamberts® Silica, derived from bamboo extract, contains over 90% organic silica—more than 10 times the level found in the widely used horsetail plant, where the level is as low as 5-7%.
