Thread: silicea

  1. #1


    Is silicea the same as silica?

    Is it safe to take during pregnancy and while trying to conceive?

    Is it natural or a chemical? and if natural can it be found naturally in certain foods?

    Silica or silicea is a trace mineral which is a constituent of connective tissue in the body. Silicea taken in a diluted form such as in tissue salts, is safe to use during pregnancy. It can also be found in foods such as leeks, green beans, chickpeas, strawberries, cucumber, mango, celery, asparagus and rhubarb.
