In an industry full of capsules, tablets and powdered products, we at Z Natural Foods choose to be a company that provides transparency in all of our products, ingredients, country of origins and essential documentations. We pride ourselves on our sources which provide great all natural products and promise you an end result that is clean, fresh and pure.

Some of our products do have a small percentage of silicon dioxide (often used to prevent the clumping of natural, raw materials). As a part of our company transparency, we would like to take the time to educate our wonderful customers a bit about Silicon Dioxide.

Silicon Dioxide is a trace mineral found naturally in many plant foods and is a necessity for healthy bones, skin, hair and nails. This essential trace mineral is found in copious amounts of fruits, vegetables, nuts, grains and seeds; as well as common herbs like parsley, garlic, and horsetail. Horsetail, in particular, is a common ingredient in hair, skin and nail products.

The fruits and vegetables that are highest in this amazing trace mineral include grapes, oranges, apples, cherries, plums, artichokes, beans, peas, asparagus, beet, celery, cucumbers, lettuce, radishes, onions, greens of all kinds. As you see, this is a very common mineral found in a wide variety of foods that it is considered to be very safe.

Today, we live in a world where more and more companies are looking to nature to solve complex problems. Silicon Dioxide is no longer an uncommonly used product, in fact it is starting to become very standardized. Silicon Dioxide is included in anything from electronics, to man-made materials, to natural foods in order to convert them into a more functional end product. It is truly an amazing mineral.

It has piezoelectric properties, which give this mineral the ability to convert one form of energy into another. Some examples of this miraculous natural occurrence include technological wave transmissions and creating high heat resistance in glass.

Many of our customers come to us confused and misinformed because the information they research on the internet is questionable and may not be accurate or current. It is always crucial to double check your sources in order to obtain the most accurate information about the products you consume, quality and transparency over all else. We’re so happy that we are able to provide you with top-notch, up-to-date information on the latest hard hit topics. Thank you for reading.
