THE WORLD’S
MOST TRUSTED SILICA

Silicium Laboratories® is the world’s leading manufacturer of dietary silicon (Si) ingredients. For 30 years, we have set the standard for SILICA in dietary supplements, skincare, performance nutrition, and beverages. We have patented our best formula, LIVING SILICA® Acacia Gum Powder ™.

LIVING SILICA® has been affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use in food and beverages. According to FDA regulations, the process involves an intensive review by an independent panel of experts, qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients. GRAS status allows food and beverage manufacturers to add LIVING SILICA® to their products to help fortify and upgrade label nutritional claims with confidence in its ingredient safety.

When it comes to silica, absorption matters.

The effectiveness of silica depends on its bioavailability. Silicium Laboratories uses a special form of silica that is backed by research to have an absorption rate of 64% which is 3.75 times higher than other forms of silica.

LIVING SILICA® Acacia Gum Powder is the latest evolution in the R&D of dietary silica; developed by Silicium Laboratories, a supplier based in Spain (ES) and established in Miami, FL in 2008.

The 5-year R&D project to develop our line of dietary silicon branded ingredients stabilized in Acacia Gum was directed by a biotechnology firm spin-off from the University of Barcelona with the goal of developing the most effective OSA, and MMST solid formulations with improved stability and solubility. Today, LIVING SILICA® Acacia Gum Powder ™ is, GRAS self-affirmed, patented, and clinically studied dietary ingredient available to manufacture powders, capsules, tablets, soft gels, and liquid formulas.

CLINICALLY STUDIED

Silicum is engaged in ongoing research and our commitment for over 20 years has always been to research for present nutraceutical and future therapeutic uses of Silicon.

GRAS
Self-Affirmed

To affirm LIVING SILICA® GRAS status, Silicium Laboratories sought out an expert panel from AIBMR Life Sciences Inc. (Puyallup, WA) because of its experience, knowledge, and expertise with GRAS self-affirmation. The expert panel included physicians, PhD toxicologists who also worked as division heads for the Food and Drug Administration (FDA).

When an ingredient or substance is determined to be GRAS, it requires sensible confidence in the minds of scientists that it is not harmful when used as it is intended. The process of achieving the GRAS determination requires a comprehensive review and a consensus of safety by a panel of experts who are qualified by training and expertise to evaluate the safety of the ingredient. Classifying an ingredient as GRAS is a program by the FDA and is regulated under sections 201 and 409 of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act (the Act), with additional regulations in 21 CFR 170.3 and 21 CFR 170.30.
