MMST Silica was developed in 1994 by Loïc Le Ribault, a world-renowned Doctor in Sciences who spent 50 years researching different forms of silica, in search of the most beneficial ones. Till date, MMST Silica has shown to be the best absorbed and most bioavailable form of silica.
Silica Max contains the most concentrated form of liquid MMST Silica packaged in amber glass bottles.
Store sealed bottle up to three years at 59-86 degrees F (15-30°C). Once opened, store bottle in the refrigerator up to three months.
Your body does not store silica… you must replenish it daily.
The main function of silica is to support your connective tissues, which in turn support your structure. Flexible arteries, healthy connective tissues, skin, hair & nails would be impossible without silica.
At birth, you have a limited quantity of silica that is depleted with age, in an irreversible manner.
By the time you are fully grown, you will have used up to 80% of your silica stores. Having been forgotten for a long time, mounting research has thankfully brought back this alchemical and magical mineral.
Silica is the MOST important mineral to bone and joint health, and also aids greatly in the health of skin, hair, nails and the overall youth of the body. This is because Silica is what holds together the macromolecules that make up the connective tissue of the skin, giving it its three-dimensional, spatial structure.
As we age, we lose silica and the ability to hold these bonds in its optimal structure, hence resulting in “ageing appearances” like sagging, wrinkles etc. On top of that, our bodies will simply be unable to function optimally.
Silica also builds collagen and elastin fibers hence any deficiency results in a loss of elasticity, firmness and tissue integrity. With sufficient silica, collagen and elastin fibers are produced and restructured, inter-fibrillar spaces will be well maintained, and one will not be dampened by the effects of ageing.
While most components of our connective tissues can be naturally synthesized in the body, our silica stores deplete through age and needs to be replenished through its deliberate consumption.
WHAT ARE THE EXISTING FORMS OF SILICA OUT THERE?
Here are the types of silica supplementation found today:
- Inorganic Silica – No biological use and might instead cause complications in our body.
- Ionic Silica – Will crystallize easily in our bodies and not offer any biological benefit.
- Stabilized Silica Complexes – Some do yield a bit of results, but due to high polymerization and reported negative effects, this is also not the most desirable form of silica.
- Diatomaceous Earth – Predominantly a gut-based parasite cleansing substance with only a negligible amount of silica being absorbed into the bloodstream – useful in its area of application, but definitely not a silica supplement.
- Natural Plant Silica Sources – Only silica-rich plants collected in Spring such as nettles and horsetail, to oatstraw and comfrey can offer some form of bioavailable silica when infused and consumed in teas, but these are only enough for users who consume them daily and copiously, and nowhere near enough to achieve the therapeutic, rebuilding, and orthomolecular effects we are looking for.
Silica is the most important factor in building live bone tissue through biological transmutation, which is the way nature intended repair of bone. Increased General Healing – as Silica is the #1 mineral for accelerating wound healing, accelerated recovery from fractures, and reduces scarring
Joints / Cartilage / Tendons / Ligaments
Silica supports the formation of cartilage and also strengthens tendons and ligaments through its effects on connective tissue
Silica is the undisputed #1 anti-aging mineral being responsible for strengthening hair and giving it shine; reducing wrinkles, retaining skin moisture and elasticity, helping blemishes and diseases like psoriasis; and strengthening nails
Silica fortifies and helps keep blood vessels elastic and prevents/overcomes calcification of heart arteries.
Silica augments the immune system and is also known to help battle infections in the body e.g. yeast infections
Silica is needed for healthy tooth enamel and also calms the inflammation of mucous membranes in the mouth and gums
Silica strengthens the lungs’ tissues and is good against colds and inflammation of the throat area
Silica plays an important role in cellular metabolism and can also facilitate weight loss
People with sufficient silica often find themselves with a clearer mind.
Silica has a high binding capacity of Aluminum, which is present in high levels in the environment, our foods, skincare, cookware and many more sources. It is also alkalizing.
Odor is generated by the combination of chemicals released by the body. Silica absorbs the chemicals, binds them to itself and transforms them. This process disinfects the body and allows it to release less pungent odors
