What is Shirika?

About Shirika

Shirika is the Japanese word for Silica. Silica is one of the most abundant elements in the universe after oxygen and it is an essential trace element needed in every part of the human’s body and skeletal structure. Silica is found most predominantly in the connective tissues - skin, blood vessels, cartilage, bone, teeth, tendons and hair. The daily dietary requirement of Silica is about 10-20mg. 

 

Where can we get Silica from?

 

Silica comes from fruits and vegetable that we consume daily like cucumbers, oats, rice,wheat,avocados, beer etc. Unfortunately, most of the foods that we eat are deficient in silica, since many of our foods have lost minerals due to being over-processed, and are grown in soil that is demineralized, due to erosion and the use of chemical fertilizers. Deficiency in Silica will be evident in brittle nails, premature aging, thinning of hair, poor bone development, osteoporosis, Alzheimer etc.
