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 Urticalcin, a combination of stinging nettle herb, silicea, calcium and sodium salts.
Urticalcin has a number of uses as a herbal food supplement. Silicea, in combination with extracts of freshly harvested stinging nettle (Urtica dioica), helps to strengthen and improve the appearance and function of nails. Urticalcin may also be used to support healthy hair growth.
Urticalcin silicea and nettle extract is part of the wide range of A.Vogel herbal remedies. It is made to the highest quality standards in Switzerland and comes in the form of small, easy to take tablets.
Alfred Vogel was a Swiss pioneer of natural health. Throughout his life, he championed the use of natural remedies in healthcare. Love of nature and the belief in its healing powers were at the heart of his work, and his legacy lives on in the range of herbal remedies which bear his name.
A Vogel is based on one of the core principles of Alfred Vogel - that health requires a holistic approach. A balanced lifestyle, a healthy diet and natural healing products play key roles in maintaining and restoring health.
Alfred Vogel made his preparations from freshly picked plants. The extra effort put into using fresh produce is what still distinguishes A Vogel from its competitors today. A Vogel products are manufactured using methods that are as close to nature as possible, using a sustainable approach to natural resources.
