Diatomaceous Earth

Diatomaceous Earth offers important benefits, particularly related to the fact that it is composed of approximately 85% amorphous silica. 

In the past, humans were able to consume enough silica in food, but as modern hybrid foods and toxic soil became a reality, studies suggest that only about 1/3 of the silica that we need is present in our fruits and vegetables. This is a sad fact, given that silica is such a necessary component for the health of our tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, and bones. It is also needed for the health and strength of our skin, teeth and nails. It even contributes to the health of almost all of our vital organs, including the heart, liver and lungs.

Silica is an important trace mineral for human beings, and one that many are unaware that they need. Dr. Barbara Hendel, author of "Water & Salt" has even stated that, "Silica is the most important trace mineral for human health.

Diatomaceous Earth is chocked-full of naturally occurring trace minerals. 

These minerals help promote strong nails, healthy skin and shinier hair in animal use.
