Collasil®

The highest bioavailable
soluble silicon

BEAUTY, BONE & JOINT HEALTH

 High bioavailability

 Proven beauty benefits

 

ORIGIN

Silicon, the 2nd most abundant element on Earth

 

 

 Different forms of silicon exist, which dictate its biological properties:

  • Mineral form (insoluble): quartz, emerald, etc. (in nature)
  • Active form (water soluble): orthosilicic acid and monomethylsilanetriol
    that can be assimilated by the body and are biologically active

BIOAVAILABILITY

An optimal and clinically proven bioavailability

 

 

A clinical trial performed on 32 volunteers aged 19-40 years showed that the orthosilicic acid (OSA) and monomethylsilanetriol (MMST) forms have the optimal bioavailability1.

The chemistry of these forms explains this result. OSA and MMST are monomeric, while the other forms show varying degrees of polymerization.
