Ingredients and its benefits
Produced via cutting-edge technology, Bioactive Silica is a vegetarian, keto-friendly formula made of proprietary organic Silica-Rx99 derived from rice, and fortified with Vitamin K2 (menoquinone-7, MK-7) [from natto], Vitamin D3 [from lichen], MCT oil [from coconut].
Silica is a vital nutrient that stimulates new bone formation and reduces bone breakdown. It is also an important initiator of bone mineralization, helping to increase bone mineral density and decrease calcium excretion in the urine. Also known as collagen booster, silica plays a crucial role in collagen production and stabilisation. This aids in bone elasticity, strength, integrity as well as build strength and elasticity of other body tissues.
Extracted from organically-grown Japanese rice via a patented chemical-free extraction process, Silica Rx-99 is the world’s first rice-derived silica that is 100% natural and plant-based. Using only plant source, Silica-Rx99 is a collagen booster that supports body’s natural collagen production and improves strength & elasticity of connective tissues, bones and cartilage. Unlike other silica products in the market, Silica-Rx99 is the only silica that has been research proven to increase bone density, even in post-menopausal women which is unprecedented. Silica-Rx99 was shown to increase bone density of all study participants by an average of 13% in just 6 months (100% efficacy)*. Silica-Rx99 is especially beneficial to those with high risk of osteoporosis. Besides bones, Silica-Rx99 also supports healthy cardiovascular system, digestive system, detoxification, brain and periodontal health. It also helps strengthen skin, hair and nails. *Individual results may vary
In this chart, the x-axis shows the amount of silicon ingested, while the y-axis shows the amount of silicon excreted in urine (an indicator of intestinal absorption). As the silicon present in the blood will eventually be filtered by the kidneys, silicon content in the blood is directly correlated to the content present in the urine. As shown above, the absorption of silicon in rice is significantly higher than in other plants. Hence, intake of rice-derived Silica-Rx99 would result in exceptionally high silicon absorption by the body. Besides silica, Vitamin K2 (MK-7) and Vitamin D3 also play a crucial role in calcium deposition in the bones.
Extracted from lichen (Cladonia rangiferina), vegan fat-soluble vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) in functional dosage (1000 IU) provides the following health benefits:
- Promote calcium absorption into the bloodstream
- Support bone health and healthy immune function
- Reduce gum inflammation & promote oral health
Studies suggest that high-normal range of Vitamin D in blood are optimal for building bones. Taking 800 to 1,000 IU of Vitamin D per day is required to reach the levels
Vitamin K2 (MK-7)
Extracted from natto (fermented soybean) without chemical solvents, natural Vitamin K2 (MK-7) facilitates the transportation of calcium from the blood to the bones. Low levels of Vitamin K2 (MK-7) was associated with a lack of calcium in the bone (increased risk of bone fracture) and an increased risk of calcium build-up on the walls of the arteries (which could lead to narrowing of blood vessels) and kidneys (which could lead to kidney stones). Vitamin K2 (MK-7) also helps:
- Activate calcium-binding actions of two proteins –matrix GLA protein and osteocalcin. These 2 proteins help build and maintain bones (calcium alone does not form bones!)
- Regulate calcium deposition
- Promote bone mineralization
- Prevent calcification of blood vessels and kidneys
- Slow down rate of age-related bone mineral density reduction
- Reduce risk of osteoporosis and fractures, including spinal fractures and hip fractures
- Reduce risk of cardiovascular diseases (CVDs)
- Support healthy dental health
Coconut origin MCT oil
Coconut oil naturally contains MCTs (medium-chain triglycerides). MCTs consist of stable fatty acids that help boost absorption of fat-soluble nutrients like Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3. MCTs are rapidly broken down and are less likely to be stored as fat. MCTs helps:
- Increase absorption and bioavailability of both Vitamin K2 and Vitamin D3
