Silica is found in compounds called glycosaminoglycans, which are components of structural tissues such as arteries, tendons, skin, bones and cartilage.
Most silica supplements use silica extracted from horsetail but at Nature’s Best we prefer to use bamboo gum as a source of natural silica. Bamboo gum contains over 90% organic silica, which is more than 10 times the level found in the widely used horsetail plant, where the level is as low as 5-7%.
Good dietary sources of silica include grains such as oats, barley and rice, although refining processes can strip much of this mineral away.
Silica has become a popular supplement for healthy skin and joint health.
New regulations on food labelling (EU FIC) which were introduced in 2014 now mean that fourteen of the most common allergens must be emphasised on the label of a product, in bold. These allergens are; egg, peanuts, fish, sesame seeds, milk, cereals containing gluten, crustaceans, celery and celeriac, mustard, molluscs, lupin, tree nuts, soya and sulphur dioxide/sulphites. We have updated our labels to comply with this new requirement and if these allergens are not shown on the label then they will not be included in the supplement.
I can confirm that this product is free from gluten containing ingredients.
