LIVING SILICA®‘s portfolio is the result of extensive research done for over 20 years to bring you incredibly powerful science-backed Silicon (Si) branded ingredients.
Total of participants: 51 women. Considered healthy after clinical examination and who did not use any mineral supplementation during the study, neither would perform any aesthetic procedure throughout the study.
Age of the participants: 40-60 years.
Products tested: LIVING SILICA® COLLAGEN BOOSTER
Recommended dose during the study: 5 mg of our elemental silica, twice a day for 37.5 WEEKS
Total of participants: 32 Healthy volunteers
Age of the participants: 19-40 years.
Recommended dose using the study: 60 ml MMST containing 6.9mg Si.
When a methyl group replaces one hydroxyl group of orthosilicic acid, it raises the solubility limit of Si and maintains it in a small, monomeric and well-absorbed form and that’s the Monomethylsilanetriol (MMST) which is assimilated up to 64% by the body, making it the most absorbable form of silicon.
