Fight The Physical Effects Of Aging

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 honor that commitment. Can something be done right away to get a good start? Yes! Supplement that healthier way of eating with Florasil, the only organic vegetal silica from the spring horsetail plant that is chelated with bioflavonoids.

Bioflavonoids: The Key To Silica

HorsetailWhy 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 FloraSil 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%.

Patented Aqueous Extraction

Isn't every silica product like that? No. It requires a very special extraction process to keep that bond with the bioflavonoids intact. There is only one process that does this; the one patented by Dr. Louis Kervran, former research scientist at the University of Paris. He devised the atomized aqueous extraction process whereby the organic vegetal silica is extracted from spring horsetail using water instead of chemicals. Only vegetal silica produced in this manner has been researched and proven effective and completely safe. Only FloraSil vegetal silica is produced according to Dr. Kervran's patented method and meets all these criteria.

Beauty Secret Of The Stars

Aging starts deep within your cells, which contain collagen, the binding element that literally holds your body together. As you age, collagen deteriorates and loses its natural elasticity, resulting in loose skin, thinning hair and brittle nails. One of the main components of collagen is silica.

The effect of silica on physical appearance is being touted by personalities noted for their striking, healthy appearance. According to an article appearing in the Swedish newspaper, Halsoblast, Joan Collins, Goldie Hawn and Barbra Streisand all credit their youthful appearance to Dr. Kervran's patented vegetal silica. Goldie Hawn was said to find his special water soluble extract of silica from spring horsetail extremely beneficial for growing thick, healthy-looking hair. Joan Collins and Barbra Streisand were quoted as using it for longer, stronger nails and firm, supple skin.

For the best quality in vegetal silica product, look for the name FloraSil (previously called VegeSil). It is important not to confuse Florasil with powders and liquids that are on the market. Insist on pure, organic vegetal silica, and let the FloraSil beauty secret of the stars become your secret!

More Than Just Silica

The horsetail in FloraSil is freshly harvested in the spring when it contains more soluble silica, due to the concentration of bioflavonoids in the plant at that time. The gentle water extraction process not only preserves the bioflavonoids, but ensures a high level of many essential minerals and trace elements, making FloraSil an important source of other health restoring nutrients. FloraSil is also encapsulated in easy-to-digest Vegicaps. All these factors put FloraSil head and shoulders above other silica supplements!

Dr. Louis Kervran

Dr. Louis Kervran, professor emeritus of the University of Paris, France, began studying trace elements including silicon in 1949. A method of deriving a silicon extract from horsetail rushes using only water, with no chemicals or solvents, was developed and patented. As a result of this revolutionary technique, a water-soluble silicon extract was made available for continued research and new applications. Clinical tests are constantly being carried out in different countries to provide further insight into this preparation's positive effects.
