The Mineral No One’s Talking About, But Everyone Needs

When it comes to bone health, the importance of calcium, magnesium, and Vitamin D is no secret, but there’s another nutrient that is just as crucial. It’s just that most people are unaware of it despite the fact that deficiency can induce bone deformities, poorly formed joints, and reduced contents of cartilage and collagen(1) — conditions that are all too common as we age.

Organic silica, also known as silicon, is the mineral that deserves big recognition, considering how vital it is.

Silica and OsteoporosisSince the 1970s, studies have confirmed that silicon is an essential mineral for bone formulation(2) and mineralization.(3) One study even proved that silicon supplementation induced a significant increase in bone mineral density in women with osteoporosis, more than the prescribed medication known as etidronate.(4) And osteoporosis is no joke – it’s estimated that as many as half of all women and a quarter of men older than 50 will break a bone due to osteoporosis.(5)

The only silica products that we support here at Sunfood are Orgono Living Silica Liquid and Skin Gel because they consist of a unique form of organic silica which is highly absorbable and bioavailable. This is key when it comes to gauging the effectiveness of any supplement. Orgono products have been used throughout the world by healthcare practitioners, chiropractors, and naturopaths for more than 30 years as the best silica products on the market.

The Magnitude of Silica -  Beyond Bone HealthSilicon plays a role in the resilience of connective tissue, namely in cartilage and ligaments.(6) It’s even in your tendons, heart, liver and kidney.(7) From bones to vital organs, silicon plays a role in all body tissues, even including skin, hair and nails!(2)


“Living Silica Skin Gel is amazing! I love this product. I purchased this to use on my hands to keep the skin nice for as long as possible as I am 55 now. I love the way my hands look -- youthful. The huge plus is that my nails are incredibly strong!” – O.A.

Skin, Nails and Joints

One study found that oral and topical applications of silica caused “clear improvements” in psoriasis symptoms such as scaling, reddening and hardening of the skin.(8) Improvements were also observed with the nail disease known as onychopath.(8) Even joint pain “was reduced by half” for patients suffering with joint abnormality.(8) Silica is serious stuff!

While silica is essential for health, no RDA has been established. However, deficiency can lead to the deterioration of bones, joints, cartilage and collagen.(2) It is not wise to ignore the importance of this vital mineral!

How to Ensure You’re Never Deficient in SilicaOrgono Living Silica is an organic dietary supplement specially formulated for optimal absorption and bioavailability -- the extent to which a nutrient can be used by cells in the body. No other colloidal silica, silicic acid or plant extract based silica supplements in the marketplace provide higher bioavailability than Orgono Living Silica.

If you want to focus specifically on your skin, Orgono Living Silica Skin Gel is intended for direct skin application without chemicals, unwanted cosmetics, or oils and is unscented for unisex and everyday use.



How to Use Silica

Begin with one tablespoon per day of Orgono Living Silica Liquid. It should be taken at least 20 minutes before or after a meal, one hour before or after medication, at any point during the day. It is best to hold in the mouth to 1 to 3 minutes before swallowing.

For best results with Orgono Living Silica Gel, apply a small dab and let rest undisturbed for up to 20 minutes before gently rubbing in. The longer Orgono Living Silica Gel is left on the skin undisturbed, the greater the potential for smoother skin, reduced scarring, and reversal of wrinkles. Try combining with Peppermint Liniment, Magnesium Oil and/or MSM lotions to restore youth to your skin, joints, and connective tissues.

“Together with magnesium oil this product (Orgono Living Silica Skin Gel) has really helped the appearance of my face. From many years in the sun I had dark patches on my skin. After using these products for just a short time - the spots are gone!” – Nanz
