Studies

Why Our Ingredient Works?

AT SILICIUM LABORATORIES WE INVEST IN RESEARCH TO ENSURE THE EFFICACY AND SAFETY OF OUR PRODUCTS.

THE SCIENCE BEHIND THE INGREDIENT

LIVING SILICA ® is the result of extensive research done over the years to bring you the best products with the best quality. At Silicium Laboratories we invest in research to ensure the efficacy and safety of our products. Below are the following studies:

1 EVOLUTION OF A DIETARY
SUPPLEMENT ON JOINT PAIN
WITH THE ADDITION OF A GEL.

This study was made by: CLINICAL BIOFORTIS, MERIEUX NUTRISCIENCE.
Housez, B. Diploma and Matthieu Pichelin Sante Nutrition, Clinical Project Manager.

To demonstrate the efficacy of a dietary supplement with the addition of a gel on improving mobility, comfort and ease joint movement in subjects presenting discomfort at knees, elbows, shoulders or hands. The duration of this study was 6 weeks.

Total of participants with joints problems: 30.
Age of the participants: 50-74 years.

Products tested: LIVING SILICA® GEL

Recommended dose during the study: 60mL per day of LIVING SILICA®. The gel was to be applied twice a day making circular movements until complete penetration.

RESULTS:

The consumption of LIVING SILICA ® had significantly reduced the intensity of joint discomfort in all subgroups.

of participants noticed a decrease of joint pain after six weeks of drinking LIVING SILICA ® plus, the daily use of LIVING SILICA ® gel.

of the participants were able to perform daily activities that they couldn’t make before drinking LIVING SILICA ®.

of the participants are now able to move the affected joints easily than before taking LIVING SILICA ®.

of the participants are now able to move the affected joints easily than before taking LIVING SILICA ®.

of participants that had been suffering from knee pain declared that they no longer experience any joint discomfort after treatment; the pain had disappeared entirely in six weeks.

2 ORGONO LIVING SILICA’S
ANTI-AGING TRIAL

Patients were randomized to receive 5 mg of our elemental silica, twice a day for 150 days. Clinical and patients’ subjective evaluations were conducted. Multispectral face imaging and hair mineral analysis were also performed.

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.

Recommended dose during the study: 5 mg of our elemental silica, twice a day for 37.5 WEEKS

The authors concluded that LIVING SILICA ® was very well absorbed, presenting higher absorption when compared to the other silica sources studied.

3 THE COMPARITIVE ABSORPTION OF SILICON FROM DIFFERENT FOODS AND FOOD SUPPLEMENTS

A study measuring the absorption of different forms of silicon was carried out by volunteers at St. Thomas Hospital, London, including Monomethylsilanetriol which is the main ingredient of LIVING SILICA®.

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.

RESULTS:

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.
