I just started taking 1 tbsp a day of Silicea Gel for my skin, hair and nails. Are there any side effects to taking silica? What allergic reactions should I look for when taking it. Also, would it damage my kidneys if taken for a long time? Thank you.
No side effects from Silicea Gel have been reported yet. There is no data that Silicea could be toxic for the kidneys. Allergic reactions are totally unpredictable side effects. Allergic reactions can occur to any kind of medicine. Allergic reactions can manifest differently, from the easiest skin rush to the heaviest anaphylactic shock. If you get any sign of allergy (skin rash, itching, hard breathing, hypotensionâ¦) stop taking the medicine and consult your GP immediately.
