Frequently Asked Questions

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

  • 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 the gentle detoxification properties of SierraSil®.* This will result in better absorption of vital nutrients.

    Drinking sufficient water is a must with a mineral complex like SierraSil as it has absorptive properties and thus requires enough water is in the system to allow it to move freely through the GI tract. To increase fluid intake, options besides water include drinking natural, non-sugary green or herbal teas.

  • 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 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.

    Due to SierraSil®’s absorptive and adsorptive properties, SierraSil should be taken at a different time of day, at least 4 hours before or after taking any medications.

  • Who should take SierraSil?

    SierraSil® is recommended for people from all stages of life – adults desiring joint support, seniors seeking to maintain independence through support for joint function; active people and athletes wanting to increase workout intensity; and anybody looking for a daily trace mineral supplement.

  • When will I start to enjoy the benefits of SierraSil?

    Our clinical research shows that people using SierraSil® can start to feel better anywhere between a few days to a couple of weeks. It is important to note that the minerals in SierraSil® start to work in the first 2 hours after taking your daily serving. For some individuals it may take longer than the first bottle.

  • What is the recommended dosage of SierraSil?

    Take 3 capsules once daily with water on an empty stomach (one hour before or after a meal). Drink a minimum of 8 glasses of water per day to support the multiple benefits of SierraSil Joint Formula14™. Take medications and supplements 4 hours before or after SierraSil Joint Formula14™.

  • 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.

  • Is SierraSil vegetarian or imported from another country?

    SierraSil® is 100% vegetarian and vegan compatible, and all capsules are VegiCaps™. SierraSil® contains no sugar, starch, salt, wheat, gluten, corn, flavoring or preservatives. The SierraSil® ingredient is BC Kosher certified. The SierraSil® mineral powder is sourced and bottled in America.

  • Is SierraSil beneficial for athletes?

    Yes athletes benefit from SierraSil® in a number of ways. SierraSil® supports joint function, allowing for increased stamina and endurance.* SierraSil® also supports healthy cartilage*. In general SierraSil® promotes feelings of well-being.* SierraSil® gives you what you need to enjoy the activities you love, even high intensity exercises. For professional and highly athletic people, we recommend taking SierraSil® 1 to 3 hours before the activity to aid in endurance and recovery.* SierraSil® should be taken on an empty stomach with only water. Please review the complete dosage guidelines to maximize the effectiveness of SierraSil®.
