Silicol Gel has two main applications - it can be used to treat a varity of digestive problems and can also be used as a beauty supplement to improve the condition and strength of the skin, hair and nails.
Silicol Gel and Digestive Disorders:
Silicol Gel is a colloidal solution of highly dispersible silicic acid, and is easily absorbed by the body. Silicol Gel has both absorbent and adsorbent properties, meaning it can coat the lining of the digestive tract as well as binding and absorbing toxins, bacteria and irritants from food, which are then safely and naturally removed. Silicol Gel also protects the intestine wall. A single tablespoonful taken three times a day has been shown in clinical trials to normalise the function of the stomach and bowel quickly and without side effects.
Silicol Gel and Skin, Hair and Nails:
The highest concentrations of silicic acid in the body are found in the connective tissue of the skin, hair and nails. Silicic acid helps to prevent weakness in the connective tissues. These body tissues consist mainly of Glucosaminoglycans and their compounds with protein constituents. These bodily substances give the connective tissue its structure. The glycosaminoglycans can store silicic acid and thereby further strengthen the tissue, giving the skin its suppleness and elasticity. Silicic acid has therefore an important function in the metabolism of the body. It supports the structural growth of the connective tissue, increases the bone mineralisation, stores calcium in the bones and supports and enhances the regeneration of skin, hair and nails. As we age, the amount of silicic acid in the skin depletes and the skin begins to slack and wrinkle. Clinical trials have shown that a tablespoon a day of Silicol Gel could help hold back the premature aging process whilst improving the overall condition of the skin, hair and nails.
