10. Silicea

Silicea had a 22.6 percent sales increase in 2003, though it only accounted for .022 percent of total supplement sales that year. Derived from flint, Silicea is a homeopathic remedy used for the treatment of abscesses, acne, acute arthritis, breast inflammation, ear infection, chronic headaches, knee conditions, mental fatigue, milk intolerance and low self-esteem, among others, according to Homeopathic Remedies, (Avery Publishing Group Inc., 2000). Dana Ullman, author of eight homeopathic books, recommends Silicea to fortify hair and nails. “Silicea is a homeopathic dose of silica, which helps the body strengthen hair and nails, especially for people who have some susceptibility to weakness in those areas. It is safe and effective when taken in 6c or 12c doses two to four times a day for one or two weeks,” Ullman says.
