Los Angeles, CA, March 1, 2004 — Los Angeles-based Jarrow Formulas announces a line extension for BioSil, the Biologically Active Silicon. In addition to its 30 ml liquid BioSil, Jarrow introduces to its product line BioSil Caps with 5 mg of silicon as a stabilized, concentrated orthosilicic acid per Vegi-cap. BioSil Caps is the encapsulated version of the patented, clinically tested liquid concentrate of stabilized orthosilicic acid. Orthosilicic acid is Biologically Active Silicon because it is the only form of silicon absorbed directly into the bloodstream, through the stomach wall and from the gastrointestinal tract.
The introduction of BioSil in a Vegi-Cap represents a significant addition to the existing BioSil liquid concentrate formula because it allows consumers a convenient choice in Jarrow Formula’s cutting edge silicon supplements. Consumers may now take BioSil in a capsule form and maintain all the benefits associated with Biologically Active Silicon. BioSil Caps is available in 30 and 60 count boxes.
Silicon is an essential element required for the normal growth, development and maintenance of the integrity of healthy bones, joints, hair, nails and connective tissue. In order to be absorbed, the body must solubilize dietary silicates into orthosilicic acid. BioSil contains Biologically Active Silicon stabilized with choline and concentrated 20,000 times.
