ALTA HEALTH - Silica with Bioflavonoids - 120 Tablets

Product Description

Founder of Alta Health Products, Inc., Richard Barmakian N.D., studied with Dr. Kervran in the late 1960's early 70,s Dr. Kervran taught Dr. Barmakian the formula and gave exclusive rights to this process for distribution in the United States. Dr. Kervran's formula for soluble/colloidal silica has been a part of Alta's fine line of health products since our beginning in 1972.

Our Silica is an extract from the horsetail herb. Silica is naturally occurring in horsetail, it is bound to the natural, organic chemicals in the horsetail plant (bioflavonoids) and remains bound throughout the extraction process. By allowing our Silica supplement to naturally retain its bioflavonoids (which are part of the vitamin C complex) we are providing a more nutritious product without synthetic additives. 
Please be aware that our Silica product is quite different from, and has nothing to do with inorganic silica. Inorganic silica is basically just powdered quartz and very difficult for the body to absorb. There are many other forms of inorganic silica that do not meet the high standards of Alta Health Products.  When inorganic silica is added to organic (i.e. vegetal) silica in this way, the body still cannot absorb it because the human body cannot absorb rocks! 

Alta Health Products' silica, in contrast, contains no inorganic silica. Our product contains only 100% vegetal silica plus the associated bioflavonoids from the horsetail plant; it is highly bioavailable (absorbed and utilized easily within the body) compared to inorganic silica.


The source of Alta's Health Products Silica is from the Horsetail Herb. It is known for the process by which bone cartilage, connective tissue and skin are formed, and is a component of collagen. Once a silica supplement is started, in as little as 15 days one will see hair and nails start to grow stronger, healthier and usually faster. It also helps strengthen joints, bones and muscles because the body needs Silica.

As we age the levels of silica in the body decline. In our youth our tissues absorb and maintain a higher levels of silica as shown by soft supple skin and the resilience and flexibility of our bodies. Silica is vital to the health of the mature, the performance of an athlete and the outward beauty of a person. As we get older, collagen is lost and this begins to visually manifest. One of the main components of collagen is silica; a supplementation of silica may enhance the skin's integrity by keeping it youthful and soft. 

Using the finest quality European Horsetail Extract with bioflavonoids, Alta's Silica provides the pure organic form of soluble/colloidal silica from a vegetal source. The silica that is extracted form the horsetail herb (Equisetum Arvense) is done so through the special extraction process formulated by Dr. Louis Kervran.
