Silica is a common prescription in natural medicine. Holistic practitioners understand it’s importance to the structure of connective tissue, cartilage and bone. Many take silica to enhance skin, hair and nails. Did you know that most of the silica prescribed as a stand-alone nutrient or in herbs such as horsetail have very little therapeutic benefit, if any. The bioavailability of silicon from silica is extremely poor. Join Daniel Baden to discuss the chemistry, absorption and clinical relevance of the different chemical forms of silicon.
