10X better than common silica
For 30 years, we have set the standard for SILICA (monomethylsilanetriol) in dietary supplements, skin care, performance nutrition, and beverages. We have patented our best formulas.
Living Silica® has been affirmed Generally Recognized as Safe (GRAS) for use in food and beverages. According to FDA regulations, the process involved an intensive review by an independent panel of experts, qualified by training and experience to evaluate the safety of food ingredients. GRAS status allows for food and beverage manufacturers to add Living Silica® to their products to help fortify, and upgrade label nutritional claims with confidence in its safety as an ingredient.
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-affirmations. 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.
The effectiveness of silica depends on its bioavailability. Silicium Laboratories uses a unique form of silica that is backed by research to have an absorption rate of 64%, which is 3.75 times higher than other types of silica.
Our source is derived from quartz, this is a natural process that is reproduced in our laboratories since 1995 to manufacture our high-quality ingredients.
We obtain the best quality raw materials and use a multi-stage distilling process that is known as the most superior purification method found on the market.
Our process control is evaluated at every stage of production and followed by extensive laboratory analysis to meet our stringent product specifications.
