What's so Good and Healthy about Diatomaceous Earth?
It is 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica)!

Many health experts believe that Silica is the most important trace mineral for human health. Silica is vital for mineral absorption in the human body.

This is how it works to keep the human body healthy:

  • When silica moves through the digestive tract, it absorbs bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, pesticide residue, E-Coli, and toxic metals. These toxins are trapped and passed out of the body. Any larger parasites that remain are killed by the DE. The result is improved health. Many people feel better, lighter.

  • Diatomaceous Earth is very hard; diamonds are 9, DE is a 7. As millions of tiny hard and sharp DE cylinders pass through the small and large intestines, they clean the walls. After only a few months of taking DE, the intestine wall is clean and is no longer coated with mucus and molds. The benefits of this are:

    1. Regular bowel movements.

    2. Healthier Colon, which is now able to absorb more vital nutrients into the blood stream.

    3. A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica which helps to break down bad fats. The results are lowered cholesterol by 40-50 points. High blood pressure goes down, too.

    The Many Benefits of Silica

    In today's grains, there is a shortage of silica in our modern diet. Only about one-third of the silica needed is supplied in our food. DE is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.

    Silica taken through DE can help with:

    1. Lowering High Blood Pressure.

    2. Lowering High Cholesterol - 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on DE.

    3. Sore Joints Feel Better - Calcium can't be absorbed without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.

    Silica can stop the pain of osteoporosis and restore the bodies' self-repairing process. Silica deposits minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.

    4. Healthier skin - Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems - itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, warts, eczemas, burns, insect bites and bed sores. If you regularly take silica, your skin will maintain a youthful look.

    5. Hair Growth - Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures shine, luster and strength.

    6. Teeth and Gums - Hardens the enamel, silica prevents cavities. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth. Silica also lessens inflammation.

    7. Hardens nails - Fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.

    Dosage: Take 1-2 tablespoons per day mixed in some kind of liquid or food. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before sleeping. Don't worry about getting too much--any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.
