Food supplements Joints bioavailable silicon

In our joints, silicon is bound to the fibers constituent cartilage, collagen, and glycosaminoglycans (5).  Although silicon is present everywhere around us (silica SiO2), it can not be absorbed by our body. Whether in soluble form of orthosilicic acid (SiOH4) or in phytolitic mineral form (horsetail), silicon remains relatively insoluble.

Thanks to our R&D collaborations, we have succeeded in metabolizing silicon by our Spirulina: we propose a food supplement rich in bioavailable silicon. Unlike other forms, the organic form of silicon in JOINTS allows the body to absorb the trace element. This unique enrichment process has been patented.
