Diatomaceous earth

Diatomaceous earth is a natural sedimentary mineral formed from the remains of unicellular aquatic shells and algae known as diatoms.

Diatoms were created 30 million years ago when these microscopic algae-like plants died and continued to be compounded within the earth's surface as skeletal remains.

These micro-organisms, similar to molluscs, produce lime-carbonate and emit silica. Our D.E. is fresh water sourced.

Researchers make reference to these clay-like, chalky remains as diatomite. Whenever we mine our planet, we uncover these remains as a thick whitened siliceous powder.

Food-grade diatomaceous earth consists of roughly 85% amorphous silica.

Silica is an essential component in the composition of our cartilage, bones, blood, and tendons. It's also required for the strength of our nails, teeth and skin. It even adds to the healthiness of our vital organs, such as the lungs, liver and heart.

Previously, humans could consume enough silica in foods, but as modern toxic soil and hybrid meals increase, studies find that no more than a third of our daily requirement for silica is contained in modern fruits and vegetables.
