The colloidal silicon dioxide that our company manufactures in its facility has biologically inert compounds. Also called Silicon dioxide, it has many uses in the pharmaceutical industry. It can be used as an anti-caking agent, disintegrant, adsorbent and a glidant, which helps the powder flow freely during tablet processing.

It is most often possible to prepare colloidal silicas in a multi-step process involving the partial neutralization of an alkali-silicate solution to form silica nuclei. As hydrogen ions dissociate from colloidal silica in aqueous solution, resulting in a high negative charge.
When taken by mouth: As long as silicon is consumed in food amounts, it is likely to be safe. There is insufficient information to determine if silicon is safe when used as medicine.
Warnings and precautions while using this product:
Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Silica, when used in food amounts, is likely safe. However, the safety of larger amounts of Silica in medicinal products is unknown. Avoid use of larger amounts of Silica.
Surgical removal of the stomach (gastrectomy): When a patient has had their stomach surgically removed, their silicon values may be lower.
