Bamboo silica supplements with biotin have a powerful influence on the absorption of minerals required by the body for optimal health. Silica enhances the function of iron, calcium, magnesium, potassium and boron, and is essential for normal bone development. Silica helps to maintain the correct calcium-magnesium balance which is essential for bone health.
Bamboo Extract Plus also contains biotin. Biotin is one of several vitamins that play a role in the growth of healthy, thicker hair. Biotin also helps to strengthen weak brittle nails.
*Biotin contributes to improvement of nails resistance, the maintenance of normal skin, and is necessary for healthy teeth, bones, hair and nails.
