About the Product
Vegesil – Vegetal Silica from Spring Horsetail. The silica in Vegesil is often called the ‘beauty mineral’ because it helps rejuvenate the collagen in your body and reverse some of the effects of aging by maintaining the elasticity and suppleness of the skin. Silica is needed for the continuous formation of collagen for the maintenance of healthy bones, tooth enamel, cartilage, blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and joints.
Vegesil is an organic vegetal silica supplement that helps provide the silica you need. A unique product is plant-based, made from the spring horsetail plant, Vegesil is the only vegetal silica supplement that is bonded with bioflavonoids, which help the silica make its way through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream.
Vegesil is produced according to Dr. Louis Kervran’s patented extraction method, whereby organic vegetal silica is extracted from spring horsetail, using water instead of chemicals. Only silica prepared in this gentle manner yields a highly bioavailable silicate in the form of orthosilicic acid.
This extraction method not only preserves the bioflavonoids necessary for the effective absorption of silica, but it ensures the retention of a spectrum of naturally occurring beneficial minerals including calcium, potassium, magnesium, manganese, boron, iron and phosphorus.
Why is it difficult for the body to maintain adequate levels of silicon? Silica, from which the body produces silicon, is not especially common in foods, unless they are grown in sandy soil. Even then it tends to accumulate in plant parts, like husks, that we don’t consume. When silica is present, it isn’t always in a form that is easy for the body to absorb.
The silica in Vegesil is derived from an aqueous (water) extraction method that preserves silica’s natural composition with bioflavonoids thus ensuring the highest bioavailability and assimilation by the body. Further, this silica is extracted exclusively from the spring horsetail which contains a higher percentage of these bioflavonoids than any other plant.
Are You Getting Enough Silica? For too many people the answer is no, and the reason is the over-refining and processing of our grains and cereals. With the removal of their outer casing, valuable silica is lost. Without silica the skin loses elasticity and hair and nails become brittle.
Can this be prevented? Yes, the best way is to change the diet, but it takes time to honour that commitment. Can something be done right away to get a good start? Yes! Supplement that healthier way of eating with Vegetal Silica, the only organic vegetal silica from the spring horsetail plant that is chelated with bioflavonoids.
BioFlavonoids: Why bioflavonoids, and why from spring horsetail? Because chelated silica is the only kind of silica the body can absorb, and the spring horsetail has a higher percentage of this silica than any other plant.
The vegetal silica in Vegetal Silica is bonded or “chelated” to a group of water-soluble bioflavonoids. These organic compounds take silica by the hand, so to speak, and help it “swim” its way through the intestinal wall into the bloodstream. Only silica chelated with bioflavonoids will have the highest bioavailability and assimilation by the body- approaching 100%.
Organic silica from horsetail justly deserves an important place among both health and beauty products.
