How does Body Elements compare to other Joint products on the market?  

The main difference between Body Elements and other products on the market is that Body Elements uses Silicon as Silicic Acid (the bio available form of Silicon) and not the traditional ingredients of Glucosamine and Chondroitin etc.

Also it is the only product that works on the whole structural system (bones, joints, ligaments, tendons and cartilage) actively promoting repair. The bio availability is another key to the product. The clustering of other ingredients to the Silicic Acid makes them extremely bio available.

What makes it Unique?

Body Elements (liquid Silicon) is a unique, stable, bio available Silicic acid (Silicon) solution, containing Selenium and Zinc. It is precisely the combination and synergy of these essential elements and the manner in which they are linked that makes Body Elements so effective and unique.

What other Silicon products are there on the market?

There are a few Silicon supplements on the market but these contain Silicon in the form of Silicon Dioxide (Si02) compounds. Silicon in these forms cannot be directly absorbed, therefore making them less successful.

These Silicon compounds have to be attacked in the stomach by gastric acids and digestive enzymes to be transformed into Silicic Acid, the bio available form of Silicon. This bio available form of Silicon is inherently unstable and will quickly form higher molecular weight polymers that are not bio-available.

Until now Silicic Acid could not be stabilized in a food supplement. Core Elements has now developed a stabilised bio-available formulation of Silicic Acid complexes. Body Elements also clusters other key ingredients like Selenium, Zinc, MSM, Boron, Magnesium and others to keep everything bio available and stable.

How long does Body Elements take to work?

2 weeks – 2 months depending on the person’s existing silicon levels  and the condition it is treating.
