Did you know that over 10 million people in the UK are currently living with arthritis, and 3 million people are estimated to have osteoporosis? Low levels of silicon have been found to be a contributing factor in many bone conditions as it can aid the growth of new bone cells, inhibit bone breakdown and stimulate calcium metabolism. Not only that, but adding silicon into our diets can also help to restore skin and nails, as well as improving hair growth and strength. Although there are natural sources of this essential nutrient (including cereals, fruit and vegetables) the quantities are so small theyâ€™re not sufficient enough to meet our daily requirements. (Youâ€™d need to eat 35 bananas a day to get your RDA!)
If youâ€™ve noticed your skin or hair losing strength and elasticity, or your nails becoming brittle and fragile, then you may be deficient in silicon – and in need of a daily boost. Until recently, this substance was unstable and not easily absorbed by the body, making it difficult to offer as a dietary supplement; however, a new method has been developed which stabilises the silicon and ensures its readily absorbed by the body. The result is Silidyn.
Silidyn has been developed to support the effective maintained of bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage – as well as playing an important role in the stimulation of keratin and collagen, essential for healthy looking hair, skin and nails as we age. This tasteless liquid supplement can be added to water (or even your morning cup of coffee) for easy ingestion and an effective way to boost your bodyâ€™s effectiveness.
If youâ€™re interested in the science bit, it contains:
MSM: helps to keep connective tissue between joints supple
Zinc: supports the immune system as well as the skinâ€™s regenerative strength
Boron: an important building block of bone tissue
OPC: from maritime pine extract, helps to protect cells and tissues against ageing
Manganese: helps in the maintenance of connective tissue
Selenium: plays an important role in the protection of free radicalDoes this sound like something you need in your life? Weâ€™re looking for Thirty Plus bloggers who want to put Silidyn to the test over the next few weeks to see if it can make a visible difference to them. Weâ€™d love for you to share your experiences on your blog, and even encourage your readers to get involved too (Silidyn are offering each participating blogger an 8 week supply for them and five readers!) As an added incentive, each blogger who takes part and shares their experiences will receive a Â£50.00 high street voucher* as a little â€˜thank youâ€™.
Up for it? Email us (firstname.lastname@example.org) with your blog URL and why youâ€™d be up for the trial!
We canâ€™t wait to hear from you.
