What is Silica?

As one of the most abundant elements in the universe after oxygen, silica is a key trace element essential to the development and maintenance of our connective tissues as well as skin, blood vessels, cartilage, bone, teeth, tendons and hair. The daily dietary requirement of silica is about 10-20mg. Silica can be found in fruits and vegetables.

Unfortunately, most of the foods that we eat are deficient in silica, since many of our foods have lost much of their mineral content due to over-processing, soil erosion and abundant use of chemical fertilisers. We lose about 80% of silica content by the time we reach adulthood, and the silica loss in our body worsens as we grow older. Deficiency in silica results in brittle nails, premature ageing, thinning of hair, poor bone development, osteoporosis, Alzheimer's disease, etc.

World’s first water-soluble silica

REJUQ Shirika - water soluble silica extract from Japan

Silica essence (or silica extract) is the result of years of intensive research and development by scientists in Japan. It is proudly the world’s first liquid silica concentrate since the 1990s. 

Utilising the state-of-the-art technology that is patented in Japan, 99.9% of refined silica crystals are mixed with pure mountain water and dissolved at a high temperature of 2000°C for up to 8 hours. Pure vaporised silica essence is then filtered and extracted.

Silica essence has been consumed as a silica supplement in Japan for more than a decade, including by many of its local celebrities.

REJUQ Shirika is manufactured in Japan in accordance with the stringent GMP standards and it is further endorsed by The Japan Medical Science Institute of Silicon (JMSIS) and the Japan Silicon Medical Research for the safety in consumption and application since 2006. 

It is tested by SGS Singapore and is free from heavy metals.
