Much has been said about collagen and its benefits. Collagen is the protein that makes up around 3/4 of our skin. It provides firmness as well as replaces dead skin cells. But as we age, our body stops producing collagen. Add to that are stressors like too much sun exposure. As the collagen disappears, so does our skin’s youthful appearance. Wrinkles start to appear and show more signs of aging. It is for this reason that collagen has become a staple of many beauty products and drinks.
But, did you know that collagen is dependent on silica?
Silica is a natural anti-aging and antioxidant mineral. It supports collagen in the production of connective tissue and improves hydration and skin elasticity. Simply put, it helps in generating a more youthful appearance.
Drinking water for a youthful glow
Claims have been made that drinking water gives our skin a radiant glow and makes us younger looking. And what would be the possible effect of drinking water that is naturally rich in silica? Studies reported that drinking water rich in silica has health benefits to repair and rejuvenate the body. Because Silica is taken internally, unlike topical creams, skin improvement occurs over the entire body. This is important to our immune system as healthy skin is our first line of defense to prevent bacteria, fungus, and virus from penetrating our skin.
