A study at Prince of Songkhla University has shown that “Silica+” (silicon dioxide produced by the Ceresco Nutrition Company) can successfully replace some of the fish meal in shrimp diets.
It concluded that “Silica+” allows the reduction of fish meal from 15% to 7.5%.
According to Dr Wutiporn Phromkunthong, who supervised the study, “Silica+” enhances protein digestion, so its addition to feed contributes to better growth performance and feed utilization.
A significant difference was observed between the experiment and control groups in terms of average body weight, final weight gain and feed conversion ratio.
When added to feed, the supplement acts like a catalyst by imparting its electromagnetic information on all forms of matter to normalize their vibrations, restoring faster homeostasis of the digestive system. The animal becomes more efficient at digesting, absorbing and assimilating nutrients, resulting in better growth and performance.
In addition, “Silica+” increases dissolved oxygen in water and helps reduce ammonia in waste products.
