Organic Silica for Laboratories
At Silicium Laboratories, we develop high-value-added organic silica formulations for the dietary supplement and active cosmetic industry. As a leading Silicon supplier and manufacturer, we are highly specialized in the development and synthesis of highly absorbable Silica molecules.
Living Silica® is a unique and effective formula designed explicitly for the most health-conscious consumer, putting their well-being above all else.
This silanol formula has a 64% absorption rate, which is often higher than other types of organic silica from competing brands.

Silicium Laboratories analyses the content of silicic acid, monomethylsilanetriol, and elemental silicon, using UV-VIS spectrophotometry, nuclear magnetic resonance, and ICP-IES spectrometry techniques. In this way, we guarantee the highest quality and the molecules with the best silicon bioavailability against competitors, which translates into faster and effective results.

MMST. Liquid and Gel
Silicium is the producer and distributor of the drinkable food-grade silicon formula (MMST or Monomethylsilanetriol). It was developed by scientist Dr. Loic Le Ribault, who popularised silicon worldwide. He stabilized a form of silicon with a bioavailability many times greater than any silicon dioxide formula available.
LIVING SILICA POWDER® ABSORPTION
It is a microencapsulated orthosilicic acid with maltodextrin providing the cells with one of the most easily absorbed forms of silica on the market today. It comes in a powder form that can also be mixed with solids or liquid supplements. A study showed that LIVING SILICA POWDER® has a much higher bioavailability compared to other types of silica.
Why is it so important to choose the right source of silicon?
Developing a bioavailable silicon supplement requires years of experience and a significant investment in scientific research. The effectiveness of silica is proportional to its bioavailability (absorption). Silicon is by nature a complex and unstable element. Its molecule tends over time to form long chains, polymerize and crystallize, becoming impossible to assimilate. Humans cannot absorb long chains of polymerized or crystallized silica. We need to obtain oligomeric, short-chain, non-crystallized silica that our body can assimilate. The degree of polymerization of Si is inversely proportional to its absorption. The human body absorbs silica as silicic acid or also known as orthosilicic acid.
