Diatomaceous Earth


Silica is one of the most important trace elements in the body. The human body holds 7 grams of silica, more than any other mineral, such as iron or magnesium. It's crucial that we derive enough silica to help with many bodily functions.  So, where can we find silica and how does it help with hair and skin?

Diatomaceous earth is a powder made from the sediment of fossilized algae found in bodies of water. The cells of these algae were  high in silica. The dried sediment from these fossils is very high in silica. Deposits are found all over the world. 
When ingested, diatomaceous earth can be used for treating high cholesterol levels, treating constipation, and improving the health of skin, nails, teeth, bones, and hair.
Diatomaceous earth is used to brush teeth or remove unwanted dead skin cells.
It is also used as an insecticide, it's thought to kill insects by dehydrating them or drying them out.

If using food grade DE in your house, be aware that inhaling food grade DE is no more harmful than inhaling dust. However if you are asthmatic, elderly, smoke, or have small children, there might be respiratory or health complications if proper are not taken.

Where possible avoid breathing in. Use DE in a well ventilated area, open windows for a flow of air to help mitigate DE build up.
