Lamberts Silica is derived from bamboo gum as it contains over 90% organic silica.
Whilst silica is only found in trace amounts in the human body, it is present in almost every tissue. It is especially concentrated in the hair, nails and connective tissues such as the skin. Whilst there is no RDA (recommended daily allowance) for silica, most nutritionists agree that a daily intake from our diet is important. Good dietary sources of silica include grains such as oats, barley and rice, although refining processes can strip much of this mineral away.
