Science

Enhanced absorption

Silicon is essential for collagen synthesis and hair formation. Without enough collagen, hair can become weak and prone to breakage. So it makes sense to up your silicon intake to achieve stronger, healthier hair. However, it is not as easy as popping a few pills.

The result
Why is silicon supplementation tricky?

While silicon is abundant in many plant-based foods, its bioavailability (i.e. our body’s ability to use it) from these sources is questionable due to the poor solubility of the chemical forms present in food. [2]

Silicic acids, including ortho-silicic acid (OSA), are considered the best sources of silicon due to their high bioavailability (approx. 40%) and natural occurrence in food [5].

The challenge of OSA in supplements and our solution to it?

Ortho-silicic acid (OSA) is a highly bioavailable source of silicon. However, in highly concentrated solutions (i.e. supplements), it has to be stabilised to avoid its polymerisation leading to a decreased bioavailability. [1]

This issue can be resolved by using a stabilised form of OSA called choline-stabilized ortho-silicic acid (Ch-OSA) [1].

Choline is a highly demanded molecule that’s instantly removed in the stomach, making ortho-silicic acid freely available as a monomer (rather than a polymer) with high bioavailability.

Ch-OSA: 250% better absorption than traditional Silica Complex*

A study by the British Journal of Nutrition [6] tested the dissolution of Ch-OSA against other silicon-containing products. They found that Ch-OSA had a significantly higher dissolution than the other products.

In particular, Ch-OSA was 2.5 to 3x more dissolved than traditional Silica Complex.

These results strongly suggest that ch-OSA has superior absorption compared to regular silicon supplements in pill form, as higher dissolution typically correlates with better absorption.
