Nutra-Life Silicaplex 5000 Plus is a high-potency organic silica formula designed to promote healthy hair and skin and strengthen soft, brittle or splitting nails.

Beneficial For:

  • Maintenance of shiny, healthy hair, vibrant glowing skin and strong healthy nails.
  • Revitalising dry, brittle, falling hair and flaky itchy scalp.
  • Strengthening dry, cracked and spotted nails, and restoring irritated nail beds.
  • Dry, irritated, wrinkled and cracked skin.
  • Balancing oily skin and hair conditions.
  • Healing wounds and torn ligaments and tendons.
  • Calcium absorption for healthy bones and teeth.
  • Fluid retention.

Key & Unique Features:

  • Horsetail herb is a rich natural source of organic Silica, an important trace mineral component of collagen, the major skin tissue. Silica is optimally absorbed in an organic form, such as that found in Horsetail herb.
  • Silica exerts a potent connective tissue strengthening action which maintains the elasticity, firmness and strength of the skin, bones, tendons, ligaments and nerves.
  • Horsetail is also rich in Potassium, Manganese and fifteen different types of flavonoids, which nourish the tissues underlying the skin and enable skin repair and growth.
  • Silica concentrates in the hair, nails and teeth, and contributes to their growth, strength, resilience and repair.
  • Silica aids the healing process for acne, boils and eczema, and helps reduce excess skin and hair oiliness.
  • Contains the co-factors – vitamin B6, Zinc and Manganese for effective absorption and utilisation of silica in the body.
  • Zinc is essential for new cell development, vision, repair and growth, especially in the skin and nails. Low levels are indicated by white spots on the nails, poor skin quality and slow healing.
  • Vitamin B6 is essential for healthy growth and maintenance of healthy skin. Low levels may be associated with dermatitis and premature aging.
  • Manganese is required for normal growth and development of bone and connective tissue.

This product is an excellent replacement for the now discontinued Kordel's Agewise Hair Skin Nails - Organic Silica 5000 (KAHSN)

Use for SPD Review by
  • star

Good product for pregnant Mum's who are experiencing SPD - helps relieve some of the pain and gives greater mobility.

Wasted my expectation Review by
  • star

I have been taken this supplement for over 2 years with much expectation as I read all other people's reviews of experiences. But unfortunately I was devastated with the result and realized that how much of my life with expectation have been wasted. I cannot relay on other people's reviews as their experiences are different from mine. So sad.....

Very Satisfied :-) Review by
  • star

My main purpose in using this product was help my skin heal from pimples that often turn into long lasting sores. Using only one tablet a day (I'm cheap! They recommend 1 tablet up to 3 times a day) I have certainly found that healing time has improved. If I have an event coming up that I really want my skin to look its best, then I increase my dosage to 2 or 3 tablets a day. It consistently appears to help.
Also I have noticed my nails, which were on the strong side before, can grow ridiculously long now.
I cannot pinpoint any changes with regards to my hair, but again, that was healthy to start with.
I don't know if it makes a difference, but I take my first tablet with breakfast.
I have been happy to recommend Silicaplex 5000 to my own friends and family, as I have been pleased with the quality and results I have experienced personally.

Great for my hair and nails Review by
  • star

I started taking this for the neck "tightness" I was getting. It really did help ease joint pain AND I saw an improvement in my hair and nail condition. Bonus!!

I wonder about the quality Review by
  • star

I have been using these tablets to try and make my fingernails harder and this product may have helped. My concern is that I found a couple of capsules had come apart and one had a bit missing of one end. Some of the capsules are very dark and feel solid and others are a lighter brown which has made me a bit dubious about whats in them.

I'm not sure Review by
  • star

I've been taking for 3 months I've noticed nothing better with my hair skin and nails hair is still thin isn't growing 100000 split ends and I do get it cut every 6 weeks no one had noticed any difference I take 2 every night before I go to bed I don't know what to think of them.

I have extremely fine hair and very thin nails, this product definitely helps my nails stronger, and my hair seems to grow faster. Have been using on and off for years and will happily continue doing so

I haven't noticed my nails so much as I have acrylics but my hair seems to be shinier and not getting the occasional pimple as I used to. Haven't been taking them too long but look forward to seeing how they help my hair growth!
