Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth - 4oz & 2.5lb bags
Diatomaceous Earth refers to the broken down remains of ancient organisms called diatoms. Diatoms were organisms that closely resembled algae in nature millions of years ago. As these diatoms died, they settled on the sea floor and formed massive deposits, which humans now mine. What’s so special about diatoms is that they had the ability to emit silica. In fact, Diatomaceous Earth is composed of about 85% silica. This is why diatomaceous earth is a white, chalky or clay like powder.

I have been using Diatomaceous Earth for several months. I have already noticed improvements in my fingernails and toenails. I started with a teaspoon once a day and am now taking a tablespoon a day. All four of my dogs are also taking Diatomaceous Earth. We started giving it to the dogs to eliminate parasites and have continued giving it to them for their overall good health.
