What is it?
Our bones are one of the body’s most dynamic systems, with growth, modelling, remodelling and repair phenomena. Like in all living tissues, numerous metabolic changes occur from birth, alternating between phases of formation and destruction, essential for forming new bone, modelling it and for the repair of damage and fractures.
When there is an imbalance in these phases, or in periods of rapid growth, it could result in weakness or a loss of bone mass, with an increased risk of deformation and fracture, also affecting osteoarticular health in general. This necessitates a supplement of the components of the bone matrix, to help optimise the delivery of nutrients that contribute to the correct formation of bone tissue.
Silicon as orthosilicic acid is the most assimilable form of organic silicon, it promotes calcium and phosphorus fixation in the areas of calcification, bone remineralisation and fracture consolidation. Silicon is involved in the synthesis of collagen, a tissue present in the bones, articular cartilage, ligaments and tendons.
Boron is involved in the metabolism of vitamin D, and therefore in calcium absorption , and is essential to preserve the reserves of calcium, magnesium and phosphorus in the body.
Calcium, in the form of tricalcium phosphate, the precursor of hydroxyapatite, the main crystalline salt of the bone matrix, increases bone gain during growth, maximises the peak bone mass and prevents bone loss, delaying the onset of osteoporosis and the incidence of fractures.
Magnesium is part of mineral bone mass and is involved in the metabolism of collagen and mineral organic matrix.
Manganese contributes to the normal formation of connective tissue.
Zinc also contributes to the maintenance of normal hair, nails and skin.
Vitamin D contributes to the normal absorption and use of calcium and phosphorus. It is crucial for maintaining calcium levels in the blood by increasing its absorption, helping to reduce bone loss and the incidence of fractures. Vitamin D also contributes to the normal absorption and use of Calcium and Phosphorus.
Zinc and Manganese prevent the loss of bone mass and are necessary for bone formation and collagen synthesis.
Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Phosphorus and Vitamin D are required to maintain normal bones.
Silical® Plus is a food supplement containing highly assimilable organic Silicon, Boron and Calcium, Magnesium, Manganese, Zinc, Phosphorus and Vitamin D, it provides the nutrients that contribute to normal bone maintenance.
