What is Diatomaceous Earth - Fossil Shell Flour (Amorphous Non-Crystalline Silicon Dioxide
There are many uses for DE, but remarkably, now humans too can benefit from the cleansing, filtering agents of diatomaceous earth. It is apparent from the research and anecdotal evidence, that food grade diatomaceous earthprovides multiple health advantages for humans and animals as well. Used as a daily treatment, diatomaceous earthmay alleviate the potentially deadly risks of high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and obesity, ameliorate annoying and stressful issues stemming from intestinal bacteria and parasites, bronchia inflammation, kidney and urinary infections, irregular bowels, as well as assist with vertigo, headaches, tinnitus, insomnia, and acts as an anti- inflammatory.
Diatomaceous earth is hands down one of the best organic remedies for internal parasites. Studies show diatomaceous earthmay help those suffering with diabetes and with arterial disease, joint pain and may prevent or alleviate Alzheimer's disease by preventing the absorption of aluminium.
Another of the benefits of Silica is that it may help to destroy bad fats. Diatomaceous Earth is Mother Nature's product with no harm to the environment, pets or people."
What is Diatomaceous Earth?
Diatomaceous earth is a remarkable, all-natural product made from tiny fossilized water plants or algae. DE is a naturally occurring siliceous sedimentary mineral compound from microscopic skeletal remains of unicellular algae-like plants called diatoms. These plants have been part of the earth's ecology since prehistoric times. It is believed that 30 million years ago the diatoms built up into deep, chalky deposits of diatomite. The diatoms are mined and ground up to render a powder that looks and feels like talcum powder. DE is approximately 3% magnesium, 90% silicon, 3% calcium, 3% sodium, 2% iron and many other trace minerals such as titanium, boron, manganese, copper and zirconium. Organic Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is a natural (not calcined or flux calcined) compound.
How Diatomaceous Earth Works
DE addresses a broad spectrum of harmful toxinsentering the body including:
Bacteria Parasites, Fungi, Potozoa, (including Polivirus), Endotoxins, Pesticides and drug residues, E-Coli, Heavy Metals (including methyl mercury), Protein Toxins produced by some intestinal infections. Many harmful things entering the body have a positive charge. Silica is a semi-conductive mineral which when warmed by body heat becomes negatively charged and gives off electrons. These negatively charged mineral ions and/or individual shells may attract bad microbes, free radicals, positively charged waste and many other harmful things. Acting like magnets, the negatively charged shells and/or ions attract and absorb positive things that are small enough to go through the diatoms. If you add a sugar molecule and you can trap toxins into the porous food-grade DE particle which is then excreted safely out of the body. Because of the strong charge, each shell may absorb a large number of positively charged substances, whether they be chemical or in the form of bacteria or viruses. They pass on through the stomach and intestine, taking many harmful substances out of the body.
