ACILIS silica-rich water launched in UK

Great-grandad Rex Garratt has set up an online business to help distribute bottled water imported from Malaysia – as scientists attempt to prove its benefits. was founded by Rex after he was appointed as UK distributor of Acilis water. Produced by Spritzer, Acilis is water sourced from deep beneath the Malaysian rainforest.

And now the product is officially available to buy in the UK for the first time after being launched in Britain last week.

 The 68-year-old, of Sandbach, said: “We have plenty of bottled water in the UK, so why are we importing it from Malaysia? The answer to that is simple.

“This water has a unique selling point in that it contains a high amount of silica and has been proven to help remove aluminium from the human body.”

Previously the water has only been available in the UK for use in clinical trials conducted by scientists at Keele University.

But now Rex is looking to make the water more readily available to UK customers – on the shelves of High Street stores.

Rex said: “I’ve heard about the potential medical benefits of this water, and I wanted to help by importing it so people in Britain could try it for themselves.

“Not only that, it has also been widely promoted as a water that encourages softer skin, stronger nails and deters hair loss.”

Rex has also pledged to donate 10 per cent of the company’s net sales to scientists at Keele University, to allow them to continue their research on the impact the product could have on health.

Keele University Professor Christopher Exley has been testing how ingesting aluminium may be effecting our health.

Through research conducted over the last 20 years, and with the support of Spritzer, Professor Exley discovered that water which contains a high amount of silica – such as Acilis – helps to decrease the amount of aluminum inside the human body.

He said: “We conducted clinical trials and we were able to show in some of the patients, that drinking this water on a daily basis was beneficial..

“We believe that is because of its ability to remove aluminum from the body.

“Both Spritzer and SilicaWaters are companies who see the potential benefits of this product and that is humbling.

“I’m pleased that the water has been brought to the UK for people to try and make a decision about this themselves.

“I’m also really grateful that they have pledged to donate samples of water and money to the research we are doing here at Keele University.”

Jo-Ann Chang, of Spritzer, said: “The UK is the first European country to distribute this water.

“We are receiving inquiries from the U.S. and other parts of Europe, but we believe that Rex, through, has the passion to drive this research project forward while also helping us to make our products more widely available.”

At the moment, Acilis – which retails at 55 pence a bottle – is only available online from, Amazon and eBay.
