Restoring Health And Balance Of Aqua Species With SILICA+®

Restoring Health And Balance Of Aqua Species With SILICA+®

Good health status in aquaculture is the result of a subtle balance between water, microorganisms, plants and fish. Natural homeostasis can be easily disturbed by external elements such as stress, anti-nutritional ingredients, toxic products or toxins emitted by certain micro-organisms, as well as weather and other factors that increase the risk of disease and mortality while also decreasing performance.


In order to eliminate these problems, antibiotics, pesticides and fertilizers have been used for decades. While benefiting from immediate results, there were long-term negative side effects on the environment and the global health status of the fish. Indeed, treating the symptoms remains sometimes crucial but a more deep understanding is needed of why certain diseases appear and how to eliminate their cause if we want to regenerate the natural homeostasis of the system.

In fact, diseases appear when the balance within the organism is broken, reflecting a lack or an excess of something. For example, the use of a large quantity of antibiotics or chlorine in water, while reducing the pathogen bacteria, will contribute to oxidize and acidify the environment providing the perfect conditions for the proliferation of mycosis and viral infection.

On the other hand, when we take into account the interaction between water, microorganisms, animal and human action, we can create harmony between all these elements. This is called synergy effect. Synergy occurs when combined elements or forces have greater impact than the sum of their individual parts; in other words: 1+1=3. In animal nutrition, Synergy effect can no longer be ignored and is becoming one of the main goals for the nutritionists and producers in restoring the health of aquaculture. 

Water’s key role in restoring the balance


For aquatic life, water is fundamental for survival but it also plays a key role in all biochemical reactions responsible for homeostasis both inside the body and in the outside environment. Indeed, water is the main mediator regulating respiratory, blood, nervous and digestive systems. Water is the main constituent of blood and so it contributes to the transport of nutrients to the cell. It also increases the volume of blood, which affects blood pressure and heart rate. Water has the capacity to dissolve gases and allow for efficient exchange and transport of oxygen and carbon dioxide. By enabling better hydrolysis reactions, water participates in the biochemical breakdown of proteins, lipids and carbohydrates. Water can be excreted, so it carries toxins that have been made water-soluble, out of the body. Furthermore, it helps to regulate body temperature and guaranty stability of the nervous system.

Hence water is able to touch upon the very essence of all the living processes to allow for the homeostasis of the system. The essential role of water to guarantee life is likely found in its polar properties and quazi-crystalline structure, which makes water an excellent resonator of electromagnetic frequencies.

Electromagnetic frequency and water


During the 20th century, scientists such as Luc Montagnier (Nobel prize), Moore et al. (1979), F.-A. Popp (1981) and many others have demonstrated that water can be affected by electromagnetic fields (EMF) and is able to transfer electromagnetic signals. Several studies show that electromagnetic fields can influence biological systems through aqueous solutions. By using electromagnetic signals with specific frequencies, it is possible today to act on regulating functions, which is essential to guarantee homeostasis of the system and synergy between all the elements.

Most recently, studies done in various world research centers* in collaboration with Ceresco Nutrition demonstrated that electromagnetic frequencies carried by a crystalline silicon dioxide contribute to improve animal health and performance by transferring specific vibratory information to water molecules. Only a small quantity of 200 ppm of the activated silicon dioxide is enough to transfer the electromagnetic frequency to an aqueous solution of the gut. 

Activated silicon dioxide and health of aqua species


According to peer-reviewed publications that have appeared in recent years, applying the activated silicon dioxide (Silica+, Ceresco Nutrition) to animal feed has several beneficial effects on health and aquatic system balance. When added to the water, the emission of EMF by...
