Silical osteoporosis bone health supplements

Silical System* provides an organic form of silicon plus 8 other nutrients that are specifically selected because they have been proven to be important for bone health.

Our bodies need silicon and we can’t form bone without it, yet most Americans don’t get enough in their daily diets.

In most health supplements, silicon is an inorganic compound – very difficult to absorb.

Silical® uses an organic form of silicon that's both easily tolerated and uses a method associated with increased absorption. When combined with Vitamin K2, Boron, Vitamin C, and Inositol, this formula, called Silical® System*, enhances the effects of Calcium and Vitamin D. This both supports bone collagen and helps to hold calcium firmly in place. As an added benefit, Silical® also supports collagen in hair, skin, and nails.

Silical® System Benefits

  • • Bone Hardness and Quality
  • • Collagen Support for Hair, Skin & Nails
  • • May Reduce the Risk of Osteoporosis*
