Pure food-grade diatomaceous earth provides many different benefits and supports the health and growth of your hair, skin, nails, and joints. It detoxes the body, denatures parasites and is great to rid fleas, ticks, and mites from skin and fur. It also grabs away aluminum from the body specifically and contains elemental silica.

Detox with DE
Diatomaceous earth offers an alternative method for detoxing your body, one that is inexpensive, simple, and effective. It doesn't require fasting or foul-tasting health foods, and many people have used it with great success. DE's naturally absorbent and abrasive nature makes it an ideal internal cleanser. As it passes through your system, it absorbs harmful toxins, and it does this without requiring you to change your diet or lifestyle.

What does Diatomaceous Earth do for the body?
When you consume Diatomaceous Earth by mouth it can be used as a great source of silica. Silica is a mineral that's essential to the formation of collagen in your body. It is also an important component of human ligaments, cartilage, and musculature. Silica can aid in treating imbalanced cholesterol levels and improving the health of hair, skin, nails, teeth, and bones!

Protect Your Pup!
We all want our pups fluffy, happy, and bug-free! Chemical-free DE is deadly to insects and arachnids, yet it is safe for you and your dog. When bugs walk through it, it sticks to them and sucks away their moisture, eventually killing them by dehydration.

Diatomaceous earth is an amazing dietary supplement because it (1) helps move things out of your intestines and (2) helps promote healthier hair, skin, bones, and joints.
The silica in diatomaceous earth is actually a primary ingredient in many of the over-priced hair supplements at your local pharmacy. If you have thinning hair, you can begin to see new hair growth after a few weeks of taking DE, giving your hair a fuller, healthier look.

Collagen, another fundamental building block of healthy skin production, is helped by the presence of silica from diatomaceous earth. That extra silica can make your skin smoother and healthier.

The silica in diatomaceous earth is not only an essential component of hair, but it is also essential for nails, too. So if you have brittle nails, take some DE to see them get stronger in just a few weeks.

Take diatomaceous earth on an empty stomach. We recommend starting small and slowly working your way up to a higher dose; begin with a teaspoon added to at least 12 ounces of liquid. Mix vigorously and drink immediately.

Some people don't like the mildly chalky flavor and gritty texture that are typical of DE mixed with water. If that describes you, try adding DE to a drink with more flavor (milk, orange juice, coffee, smoothies) or to light foods like yogurt, oatmeal, or applesauce.

Origin: USA

Our Diatomaceous Earth (aka Fossil shell flour) comes from an extremely pure fresh water deposit of the diatom Aulacoseira from a deposit created in the Miocene epoch. Why is this diatom so special? Its shell is made of amorphous silica. Its shape and hardness are important to how it works. Its hardness keeps it from dissolving in liquid. The holes along the diatom's wall allow it to absorb moisture, hence its commonly used as an anti-caking agent.

The colour of this DE is almost pure white and consists of 89% (and sometimes more) Silicon Dioxide plus 28 trace minerals which means more diatom surface area is available. More diatom area means greater absorptive capacity and more improvement in the mixability and flowability when used in animal feed. It does not swell nor absorb nutrients and thus poses no long-term hazard when used as an anti-caking agent in animal's feed. Darker coloured DE often contains an excess of a particular mineral such as iron or a high percentage of clay.

What's the difference between amorphous and crystalline silica?

Amorphous silica is silica in its naturally occurring state. It is a trace mineral every mammal on the earth needs to live. It becomes crystalline when it is exposed to extreme heat through volcanic activity or commercial manufacturing means. The type of DE used in swimming pool, and other, filtration systems is crystalline silica. Crystalline silica is extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested. It is not biodegradable. This DE contains less than one half of 1% of crystalline silica and is considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe).

This DE is listed by the Organic Materials Review Institute (OMRI) which supports organic integrity by providing organic certifiers, growers, manufacturers, and suppliers an independent review of products intended for use in certified organic production, handling, and processing. It is also a product labelled Food Chemical Codex Grade (FCC) which refers to a compendium of standards used internationally to ensure the quality and purity of food ingredients.
