JarroSil 60 capsules - biologically active silicon | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas JarroSil 60 capsules is a silicon supplement in the form of stabilized silicic acid. Silicon is an essential partner of calcium for bones, glucosamine for joints, and antioxidants for healthier arteries and cardiovascular function.
who can benefit from JarroSil?
Anyone who is concerned about healthy bones and skin needs to ensure adequate silicon intake. Our ability to utilize the silicon in our diets diminishes as we age, so easy-to-assimilate JarroSil also benefits older consumers.
• plays an essential rol in the formation of collagen, bones and cartilage in joints
• this form of silicon is most effective in strengthening your hair and nails
• silicon plays an essential role in the elasticity of your arteries and skin
What is JarroSil?
JarroSil ® is a patent pending Activated Silicon ™ formula, containing stabilized molecular clusters of silicic acid. This stabilized silicic acid formula is concentrated at 8,000 parts per million. That’s 160 times more concentrated than is theoretically possible in a water solution, which is up to 50 ppm.
Stabilized silicic acid molecular clusters are the key to JarroSil. They quickly and easily form ortho- ( i.e. mono-) and disilicic acid in the stomach, the form of silicon the body uses. JarroSil also contains boron, another important mineral for bone and collagen health, to enhance the metabolism of silicon. JarroSil supports bone health, joint function and collagen production; it also helps strengthen and beautify hair, skin and nails.
The Essential Nature of Silicon
Silicon is virtually everywhere in nature. Next to oxygen, it is the second most abundant element in the biosphere, comprising 26% of the earth’s crust. Our bodies contain about 1 gram of silicon.
Studies at UCLA and other research institutions have found that silicon is an essential element required for the normal growth, development, and integrity of bones, joints and connective tissue. It is also critical for healthy hair, skin, nails, arteries and cartilage. Literally every part of the body that requires strength and elasticity requires silicon.
Specifically, silicon is associated with collagen formation, the fibrous protein matrix which provides support for body structures such as cartilage and bones. This is why, in addition to calcium, magnesium and other trace minerals, silicon plays an important role in optimal bone health. Inadequate silicon intake has also been associated with weak, brittle nails.
Our bodies process silicon inefficiently and this ability diminishes further as we age. This is clearly why JarroSil supplementation is necessary to ensure healthy bones, joints, hair and nails.
JarroSil Contains Activated Silicon
The bioavailable form of silicon is monomeric (single unit) silicic acid [Si(OH)4], sometimes referred to as orthosilicic acid or monosilicic acid. Silica [SiO2] is silicon dioxide and is not bioavailable. Silica is also the most common component of sand. Silicon is found in food (and horsetail) as silicates, which are likewise not bioavailable. All dietary silicon must be converted in the stomach into monomeric silicic acid for it to be absorbed and used by the body. JarroSil is an efficient source of bioavailable silicon.
JarroSil and Bones
Silicon plays a very important role in bone calcification, especially during the growth of new bone. The cells that make bone (osteoblasts) start by constructing a connective tissue matrix. When this is done, the osteoblasts switch their function and begin to fill in this matrix with minerals. This process requires silicon.
In a recent study using a rat model of osteoporosis, supplementation with water-soluble silicon significantly increased femoral and tibial bone density. This study also found that water soluble silicon supplementation led to reduced urinary excretion of calcium and phosphorous, which indicates a decreased amount of bone being broken down. Although this study focused on short-term, high dose silicon, the findings suggest that prolonged, low-dose, water soluble silicon may have the same effect.
JarroSil and Skin
The skin is the largest organ of the human body, contributing up to 15-20% of our body weight. Skin is composed of a large amount of connective tissues. Bioavailable silicon was shown to increase collagen concentration up to 12.5% in the dermis of the skin of calves. Silicon is crucial for activating the hydroxylation enzymes involved in cross-linking collagen, which improves the strength and elasticity of this fibrous protein. Better collagen means better skin, more elasticity and fewer wrinkles.
JarroSil for Hair and Nails
The outer shaft of hair is intended to be very strong, essentially as strong as any fiber. This outer shaft of hair, that also provides elasticity and strength, is rich in silicon. Adequate silicon can help hair grow thicker and stronger.
The predominant minerals in nails are calcium, silicon and sulfur. A sign that silicon may be systemically deficient is nails that are brittle or soft.
JarroSil Activated Silicon is an essential partner for bones, joints and cardiovascular health as it also strengthens and beautifies hair, skin and nails.
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

What causes grey hair? Can it be prevented or treated?
One of the results of a lockdown during the current COVID-19 pandemic was that all hair parlours were closed down and those of us, why rely on their hair being dyed by professional hair stylists, were confronted with their grey hair again.
Which made me want to uncover the various reasons why people get grey hair (in my case it was mostly B12-deficiency and stress) and whether grey hair can be prevented and/or treated.
Hair gets its colour from a type of pigment called melanin. The formation of melanin begins in the fetus. Hair gets two types of pigments: the dark pigments are called eumelanin, and light pigments are called pheomelanin. These two types of melanin pigments blend together to form different types of hair colour. Again, these pigments are positioned properly in the hair follicles. So, when hair starts growing, these pigments are absorbed in the hair to give it a particular colour.
Hair colouration is a systematized process. So, if there is a slight difference in the bodily system, the hair loses its colour which is then called as grey hair. Over the decades, the researchers are working hard to find a real solution for grey hair. Unfortunately, there is no specific remedy yet come out that can provide the ultimate solution against grey hair. On the other hand, people must have a clear understanding on why they get grey hair. It will help them to find out the reasons specific to grey hair. Here are some of the causes of grey hair:
How to prevent or treat varicose veins with natural remedies?Sometimes it seems like varicose veins come out of nowhere when you’re least expecting it. Most people over the age of 60 have some degree, and usually they’re not a big deal. But they could be, it depends on the general health of your veins.
Valves in your veins are supposed to work harmoniously to move blood in one direction, to the heart!
If your heart is weak, or your valves stop working, or your veins lose collagen and become weakened, then the blood stays in your legs and feet longer than it should. It pools faster if you’re standing for a long time or if you’re sitting for a long time like during a long plane flight. The pressure inside your veins makes them wider and after a while, micro amounts of blood leak out into the surrounding tissue.
Varicose veins form, that is what you see when you look at your legs and see those twisted, distended big blue veins. It causes venous insufficiency. You are not the only one suffering: a large amount of especially elderly people and those who have to stand for a long time in their jobs, have varicose veins. They mostly impact the legs and feet.
Is 5G safe enough?In the last few months, we've been bombarded with news about whether or not to cooperate with Huawei in the creation of a 5G-network, due to fear of being spied upon by the Chinese government.
However, it is rare to see concerns being spoken about the possible health effects of introducing a 5G-network, which is necessary in order to create the ability for the 'Internet of Things' (IoT).
What is 5G?5G, also known as 5th generation mobile networks or wireless systems, is considered the next phase in mobile technology. These wireless systems are the transmitters that carry signals to our cell phones and other wireless devices.
While the public isn’t operating on 5G yet, it’s anticipated that over the next decade, most wireless carriers will shift to 5G technology. This transition is expected to bring better coverage, lower battery consumption, faster Internet connection speeds, and the ability to support a growing market of products other than phones and tablets that feature wireless integration.
Botox: what is it and is it dangerous?Nowadays, you often hear how people have used botox in order to get rid of unwanted wrinkles. Apparently, 3 out of 4 users are satisfied enough to recommend it to others. As a matter of fact, botox has become so popular, there are even so-called 'botox parties' in which the guests all receive injections while having a drink and bite.
Although botox was approved for medical use almost 30 years ago in 1989, it was only approved for cosmetic treatment 15 years later in 2002.
Botox became rapidly popular as a solution to sagging skin. So much so, that perhaps you too are considering to do it as well.
However it is a smart idea to get familiar with how botox works and what to expect in order to make a smart decision.
Why does skin wrinkle when we age?Normal healthy skin has a nice epidermis with a smooth outer layer that acts as a barrier to water and environmental injury. Skin colour and tone is even and unblemished. Components such as collagen that make the skin look firm and plump.
Elastin is what makes the skin elastic while glycosaminoglycans keep the skin hydrated. These three are all abundant when we are young.
So, what causes the skin to look wrinkled? That is a result of a combination of both intrinsic aging and extrinsic aging.
Silicon supplement rejuvenates skin, hair and nailsIt's not only gelatine and biotin that make your nails stronger. Studies show that silicon compounds do so too. Belgian researchers demonstrated the effect of orthosilicic acid in an experiment in which they gave women with an aging skin a mere 10 mg silicon daily.
