Where Can I Find Definitions for Health Terms on Your Site?

Question: Do you have a place on your website to look up definitions of ingredients, for instance, silicon dioxide and others?

The glossary on our website provides definitions for many of the ingredients used in our supplements, and you can access it by clicking the “Health Library” tab, then select “glossary.”

The term silicon dioxide does not appear in the glossary, although the word silica does, which is simply another word for silicon dioxide (SiO2). It is a hard mineral that is often used in supplements for the hair, skin and nails due to its ability to strengthen.
