Silicon is an extremely important mineral for collagen production. Specifically, silicon regulates fibroblast activity and hydroxylation enzymes to help ensure healthy skin, hair and nails. Research has confirmed its clinical utility in these areas, with various improvements found in skin elasticity, nail brittleness and hair quality. Moreover, supplemental silicon has also shown to be able to increase the collagen content of bone and improve bone mineral density. The problem is that most forms of silicon are poorly bioavailable because they are insoluble. Naturally occurring silicon sources are large and will clump together to form polymers. Supplemental forms that are synthesized to be smaller molecules
tend to be unstable. In both cases, silicon becomes difficult for the body to absorb. The solution to this problem is Monomethylsilanetriol (MMST). MMST is fully stable without polymerization potential. Its small methyl group maintains the stability of molecular bonds and keeps the molecular charge neutral. This makes MMST the most bioavailable organosilicon molecule capable of significantly increasing silicon levels within the body. Head-to- head studies have shown that MMST is 3.5-times better absorbed than choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch- OSA), and 21-times better absorbed than horsetail, bamboo and colloidal silicon sources.
Each tablespoon (15ml) contains:
Silicon (from 12mg Methylsilanetriol) 4mg
Adults - Take 1 tablespoon (15ml) per day, 5-10 minutes before meals or as directed by a healthcare professional. If possible, hold in mouth for 1 minute before swallowing in order to maximize its absorption under the tongue.
Shake before use. Refrigerate after opening.
Warnings: Do not use if safety seal is broken. Consult a healthcare professional prior to use if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
