- Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized shells of microscopic water-dwelling organisms known as diatoms.
- Diatomaceous earth is made up of 89% silica. It is also very high in calcium and Vitamin D.
Years ago, the silica found in our foods was adequate, but with today’s depleted soils, only about one-third of the silica needed by our body is supplied in our food.
Diatomaceous Earth Topically
Diatomaceous Earth can be used as an exfoliating treatment, making an excellent facial scrub.
It is a very fine powder, porous and light. Diatomaceous earth traps additional oils and bacteria on your face and scrubs away dead skin cells, increasing blood circulation. Diatomaceous earth enhances collagen production and stimulates new cell growth. It softens and rejuvenates while providing your skin with the nutrition it needs to be its best!
Diatomaceous Earth Orally
Diatomaceous Earth is truly nature’s tooth care! It works by trapping additional bacteria in your mouth and hardening the enamel. The silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that cause the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones and teeth and also lessens inflammation.
