Frequently asked questions

Questions about SierraSil’s natural joint relief products? Read through our FAQs and learn about recommended dosage, intake, shipping and more here.

  • Why do you recommend increasing water intake?

    Drinking at least 8 glasses of water per day keeps you hydrated and will complement the benefits of SierraSil®. It is important to keep your body hydrated to ensure cardiovascular health and promote gentle detoxification properties of SierraSil®.* This will result in better absorption of vital nutrients.

  • Why do I have to take SierraSil on an empty stomach?

    SierraSil®’s composition naturally promotes absorption of the minerals.* When taken with water on an empty stomach, SierraSil® has a pH of about 3.5, which allows the beneficial minerals to be easily ionized and presented to the tissues to simultaneously replenish mineral deficiencies and support metabolic balance.* It is very important to always take SierraSil® on an empty stomach. If taken with food, medications or supplements the clay component of SierraSil® will become bound to food components such as fiber, phytates and phosphates, as well your medications or supplements and will not be absorbed into the body but will instead pass right through with all the contents its intact. If taking SierraSil with food and medications the maximum intended benefits will not be realized because the proper concentrations were not absorbed into the body.

  • Should I continue to take other joint care products?

    That is up to you. Some joint care supplements provide ingredients a healthy body already makes and therefore may not be necessary; others may complement the benefits of SierraSil®. Most consumers find SierraSil® provides a sufficient level of benefits that they do not need to take other joint care products. That said SierraSil® alone is not a substitute for healthy living. To compliment SierraSil®’s effectiveness we recommend a diet of wholesome foods, including plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and essential fatty acids. Avoid or reduce highly processed foods. Healthy lifestyle choices include regular exercise, a full night’s rest and reduced stress.
