SierraSil Joint Formula14 is named after Sierrasil's promise to you: start feeling better in 14 days or less or your money back!
Sierrasil contains a pure, all natural mineral powder with essential minerals including calcium, iron and other trace minerals such as silicon, potassium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc. Research shows Sierrasil helps to ease joint and muscle aches, reduces stiffness and prevent cartilage breakdown associated with exercise and movement. Sierrasil has health promoting and detoxifying properties because of its rich clay mineral structure.
SierraSil is unique in its source, its combination of minerals, and in its benefits. SierraSil contains a rich complex of minerals with unique properties unlike any other complex known. Dr. Haydn Murray, a renowned mineralogist, conducted an x-ray diffraction analysis of SierraSil; he reported: "In my more than 50 years of mineral research, I have never seen a combination of minerals like this before."
SierraSil is unique due to its mechanism of action, which supports cartilage integrity through gene suppression. SierraSil is also one of the few joint support formulas on the market that works for most users and does so typicaly in less than two weeks, is vegetarian and has voluntarily been extensively tested for safety.

SierraSil Joint Formula14 - Dosage Guidelines
For best results take the SierraSil Joint Formula 14 capsules with only water, together (at one time) and away from food. Food or other beverages such as coffee, tea, juice or milk should be taken at least 30 minutes after, or 2 hours prior to Sierrasil. Take medications and supplements at least 4 hours before or after Sierrasil. Sierrasil has detoxifying properties due to its rich clay mineral composition therefore it is strongly recommended to drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day. Increased water intake assists the body in flushing out toxins and heavy metals that are eliminated out of the body when using Sierrasil. The dosage size is based on a body weight of 80 kg (175 lbs).

Important Notes about this Table
Essential Minerals in SierraSil®: Calcium, Potassium, Sodium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Iron, Manganese, Copper, Zinc (see back table for specific health functions)
+ The Recommended Daily Intake of Sodium is 1500 mg. Diets containing no more than 1500 mg of sodium are recommended for the maintenance of healthy blood pressure.
* The Aluminum content of SierraSil® is lower than normally present in the environment as well as many commonly consumed foods, including baked goods and tap water. The Upper Limit is 70 mg/day per Joint FAO/WHO Expert Committee on Food Additives (1998). The Upper Limit is the maximum dose likely to be safe in nearly all individuals.
** The Recommended Daily Intake for Iron is 18 mg/day.
++ Silicon is a source of dietary Silica. Silica is required for healthy tissue and bone development and maintenance. Currently, there is no recommended dosage for dietary Silica, but research suggests the body needs from 20 to 200 mg/day.
Barium is a naturally occurring mineral found in tap water, air, soil and commonly consumed foods such as seaweed, fish and Brazil nuts. There is currently no maximum dosage for Barium in foods or supplements. The maximum allowable level of Barium in drinking water is 2 ppm (2 mg/L).
Cobalt is a component of vitamin B12 that helps to form red blood cells and metabolize carbohydrates, fats and proteins. The recommended dosage for Cobalt alone is 0.004 - 44 mcg/day. The maximum combined dosage of Cobalt and Vitamin B12 should not exceed 1000 mcg (1 mg) Vitamin B12 per day (Recommended dosage for Vitamin B12 is 0.14 “ 1000 mcg/day).
SierraSil®™s rich clay mineral structure has strong health promoting and detoxifying properties. Due to its charged and porous structure, SierraSil® attracts and binds positively charged toxins, harmful bacteria and viruses as well as heavy metals, pesticides and other common chemical toxins, facilitating their safe removal from the body (Johns & Duquette, 1991)
