BioSil : The Natural Way to Prevent and Treat Fragile Bones

What causes the holes in Swiss cheese? I’m sure the Swiss know the answer, but I don’t. I do know what makes holes in bones, causing osteoporosis. Today millions of North Americans are taking prescription drugs to treat this devastating disease. But there’s a safer, natural remedy, BioSil tm, to prevent “holey” bones.

The figures are frightening. Studies show that one in four women and one in eight men over age 50 have osteoporosis. And with an aging population we can expect more cases in the years ahead.

Who develops this crippling disease depends on several factors. Genetics plays a role in certain families. So does being thin, small boned and of white or Asian ancestry. Smokers, those who take three or more alcoholic drinks a day and patients who require corticosteroids to treat asthma or arthritis are at increased risk.

Osteoporosis, a silent killer, results in fractures of the spine, hip and wrist. A fracture can also occur with the speed of lightning from a forceful hug, or a sneeze can suddenly break a rib. Osteoporosis can result in chronic pain or life in a wheelchair.

Professor T.D. Spector, a leading bone researcher of St Thomas Hospital in London, England, reported at the 27th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research that low dose choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid (ch-OSA), a form of silicon, plays a major role in building strong bones.

In his study 184 women with either osteopenia (early osteoporosis) or osteoporosis were divided into four groups. They were all prescribed a daily supplement of 1,000 milligrams (mg) of elemental calcium and 800 IU of vitamin D3. But three of the four groups were also given daily amounts of either 3, 6 or 12 drops of choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid.

Spector reports that after 12 months those women taking 6 and 12 drops of ch-OSA showed significant changes in bone formation, particularly the hip bone. This and other studies now show that a combination of calcium, vitamin D3 and ch-OSA is a safe way to grow strong bones.

We know ch-OSA builds and maintains strong bones by depositing calcium and phosphate into bone. Equally important however, ch-OSA triggers collagen formation, the fibrous protein which provides support for bony structures. It’s like the steel girders that keep buildings from collapsing. 

Adequate amounts of collagen generating orthosilicic acid are also required for other tissues, but as we age levels decrease. For instance, the elderly aorta, the largest artery in the body, contains only 15 percent silicon as that of a child! Losing framework of the aorta may be one reason for the aortic aneurysm that ruptures, causing death.

The predominant component of nails is keratin. Keratin production is dependent on the skin’s collagen matrix. A lack of collagen results in brittle nails. Hair growing out of the skin with a higher content of collagen tends to fall out less and has more shine and luster. And increasing the amount of collagen in the skin gives it greater strength, increased elasticity and fewer wrinkles.

BioSil tm is a dietary supplement that contains choline-stabilized orthosilicic acid, the only form of silicon that is biologically active and absorbed by the body. BioSil is so potent that one bottle of it equals the amount of orthosilicic acid in 600 liters of mineral water!

BioSil can be taken either as drops or capsules. The usual dose for bone strength is 6 drops per day in either juice or water or one capsule per day. For additional hair, skin or nail benefits, take an additional 6 drops per day or a total of 2 capsules per day. BioSil is available at most health food stores, but should not be used by pregnant or nursing mothers.

Pound for pound natural remedies are safer than prescription drugs. So I believe it’s prudent to first consider a natural remedy. But only your own doctor must make this decision for you.
