Aids in the assimilation of calcium and promotes healthy teeth, bones, nails, nerves and muscles.
Silicea is a substance most often associated with strong hair and nails and can be taken in the form of tablets or gels. It is found in Assist Calcium Absorption, a combination of stinging nettle herb, silicea, calcium and sodium salts.
Alfred Vogel used to create Urticalcin by hand, mixing the ingredients to the correct consistency before hand-pressing the tablets. The demand was such that he soon had to develop a machine to carry out this laborious task for him while maintaining the quality of this most useful mixture.
