Can You Game Your Body’s Health with Silica Supplementation?

Of all of the minerals the human body needs to function, silica is one of more important minerals needed for every day life. Silica is essential for maintaining and developing human tissue and research suggests that silica may even be more important that minerals long thought to the be most essential. With an estimated 3/4ths of the population deficient in silica, more attention needs to be paid attention to this essential mineral.

What is Silica Mineral?

silica health supplementsTechnically speaking, there is no mineral called silica. Silica is actually silicon dioxide, an active form of the mineral silicon. As previously stated, silica is essential to the maintenance of bodily tissues and is required to repair and build bones and joints.

Silicon is a macro-mineral and it has been categorized this way since the 1970s. Researchers found that poor bone development and insufficient growth were two effects of silicon-deficiency when animals were fed a diet low in silicon. Other studies have shown that the health of arteries and skin tissues are both affected by silicon. More studies are currently in progress and researchers hope to show that silica is more important.

Unlike in the past when the human diet consumed enough silica, modern food processing has stripped silica from the average diet. Most humans do not consume nearly enough silica, which has dramatic effects on the body. This has lead to the growth in popularity of silica supplements such as diatomaceous earth, which supply the body with this essential mineral that acts as a glue and healer of many potential ailments residing within your body.

Benefits of Silica Supplements for Health

Now that you know how important silica is to the body, what exactly are the benefits of silica supplements? Here are the most common reported benefits of silica supplements:

Heavy metal detoxification

Heavy metals like aluminum, cadmium, iron, and copper are found in foods and inhaled by us each day. While it is true that these heavy metals are perfectly safe and even needed by the body in small amounts, studies have shown that a large concentration of heavy metals can be toxic.

Silica supplements help to flush the digestive tract of these heavy metals, particularly aluminum which has been linked to Alzheimer’s. These heavy metals are quickly flushed out of the system which allows the digestive tract and the entire body to operate more efficiently.

Improved bone health

Silica is an essential mineral that is needed for the production of collagen. Collagen is what actually makes up our bones – not calcium. Although calcium is needed for the process to make bone, the core part of our bones are made of collagen.

Silica helps to make this essential bone cartilage so that bone density is higher and that the bones are much stronger and healthier.

Improved blood pressure and circulation

Silica strengthens the walls of the arteries and helps eliminate plaque from the walls of the arteries. This helps regulate blood pressure and helps to improve circulation so your entire body can receive vital nutrients to operate as efficiently as possible. Some studies suggest that silica supplements might help lower the risk for heart disease.


Swissgolden Held its 2nd International Conference in Madrid This July

This July, Swissgolden held its second international conference in the lovely city of Madrid.

Even Swissgolden bloggers are taking notice. With the motto: “Swissgolden: perhaps the only worthy response to any crisis!”, the gold bar buying club celebrated with both enthusiasm and style amidst a positive atmosphere of optimism and continued success.  The location of the conference lent a festive atmosphere, as Flamenco references permeated the entire course of events.

Speakers at the Swissgolden Conference

Company Director Kseniya Kreger gave an uplifting presentation on Swissgolden’s yearly financials as well as forward direction for development of the company.

Various company leaders gave in-depth presentations on practical matters such as creation of gold shop websites for independent associates.  Some gave presentations featuring top sellers with persoal success stories to entertain the crowd, according to the chief editor at

There was also a round of awards, where Swissgolden leaders were recognized for their achievements.

Conference Attendees Get Down to Business

After the speakers and award ceremonies, it was time to get down to the real reason many conferece-goers made the trip to Madrid: a concert, show, and buffet for everyone.  The next day, it was on to more important work like sightseeing in Madrid, complete with interview and photo shoot stops.

Swissgolden: European Only?

Swissgolden holds its administrative offices in London, with a nominee informative office in St. Petersburg, Russia.  There are partner offices in Russia, Ecuador, Spain, and more locations around the world.  The training center is in St. Petersburg, where partners may attend training held by Kseniya Kreger, sales director.

The conference seems to have been held in Spanish, as there are no videos in English to be found, yet many in Spanish, one in Russian and one in Italian.

One reason for this may be that buying and selling gold bullion is still big in Europe, and has in fact always been bigger over there than in the USA. They’re like the spanish-version of MOBE, which got their start in Australia and continues to flourish in Europe markets.

“About Programm” (no that’s not a typo)

Europe does seem to be command central for Swissgolden.  That makes sense after all…Switzerland has long been the gold marketplace of choice for gold dealers from around the world.  They have the infrastructure for certifying the gold bullion, and of course for transporting and storing it.

Although such services are available in the United States, the world simply knows and trusts Switzerland and has for a long time, when it come to the gold business (and, to a lesser extent, Germany).  Swissgolden customers have their gold stored in depositories in both Switzerland and German, where there is a plethora of specialized and certified gold depositories.  The actual gold bullion they purchase through Swissgolden is Swiss and German as well.

Swissgolden shows its true non-English speaking colors on its own website, where their “About Us” page is titled “About programm”  (in case English isn’t your strong point, there’s a missing article in there, plus a misspelling).

Swissgolden, the Opportunity

After an initial laydown of cash for their gold, customers may pay for their gold purchases with marketing activity rather than cash.  They put in orders for gold, then pay for them later once they’ve brought new paying customers into the program.  This is the company’s version of a bonus marketing program.
