General Information About Diatomaceous Earth

One of the biggest assets with Diatomaceous Earth (Food Grade) is that it is about 89% silica.

There is a shortage of silica in our diet due to 'over farming' on depleted soils; only about 20% of the silica our body needs is supplied in our food, and since our body can not make silica, it must be obtained through food or supplementation.  Diatomaceous Earth is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.

What is silica and why do we need it?

Silica is an essential requirement in the body, and is required for the bones, tendons, skin, cartilage, blood vessels, the blood itself, and organs such as the liver, heart and lungs.  Silica is an essential nutrient for the body and has a huge impact on our health.  Some of these benefits include:
  • strengthens the blood vessels
  • improves the elasticity of the joints
  • prevents the body from absorbing aluminum and flushes aluminum from tissues
  • stimulates the metabolism and division of cells
  • delays the tissues’ aging process
  • increases mobility
  • alleviates pain from osteoarthritis
  • relieves back pain
  • aids in bone healing
  • strengthens hair
  • normalizes circulation
  • prevents wrinkles
  • regulates the bowels
  • helps prevents kidney stones
  • repairs and maintains vital lung tissue
  • tones the upper respiratory tract
  • strengthens nails
  • improves collagen levels
  • hardens tooth enamel
  • slows the degenerative process of connective tissues
  • helps bone re-mineralization 

The necessity of silica for collagen formation and development is the basis of many of these physiological effects.  Collagen is the tough fibrous material that holds us together.  Many aging problems are a direct result of the body's inability to maintain adequate collagen.  Think for a moment about the following aging problems: joint deterioration, brittle bones, hardening of the arteries, dry skin, inability to digest food properly, weakened teeth and gums, and atrophying organs.  They all are collagen related in one form or another.  When we are young, Silica levels in our body are high and our bones and joints are flexible.  Our skin is supple and glowing.  As we age, Silica levels decline and without adequate levels of Silica in our body, we manifest many of the symptoms of aging such as joint disease, weakened digestion, and wrinkled skin, to name a few.
