Food grade Diatomaceous Earth is a type of sedimentary rock composed of tiny fossilized organisms called diatoms that have been crushed into a powdered form. Diatoms are unicellular organisms that were once food for marine organisms, but when they die and fossilize, their silica shells form diatomaceous earth.
Diatomaceous Earth is quite a hard substance. On a scale of 1 to 10, Diamonds being a 9, it is right under with a hardness of 7. When taken internally, the crushed diatoms are sharp like cylinders that pass through the intestinal track creating almost a scrubbing effect. After a few months of use, studies show the intestinal walls were no longer coated with mucus and molds, but that they were clean. Some advantages may be regular bowel movements, a healthier colon tract, and many users reported an increase in energy and needing less sleep.
A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica. In today’s grains, there is actually a shortage of silica because of the hybrid seeds that are used and depleted soil conditions. Benefits from silica may include: helping to destroy bad fats, lowering cholesterol, helping sore joints and ligaments, acne and skin problems, stronger hair and nails, stronger teeth and gums, healthier respiratory tract and less menopause symptoms.
Another benefit from Diatomaceous earth is that it can be used as a safe food grade pesticide. Insects such as earwigs, ants, cockroaches, snails, flies, ticks, and bed bugs will pick the powder up which will then cut through the insects protective wax layer, drying it out and killing it. If ingested by the insect, it will tear up their inner organs causing death. They may also track it back to the nests and infect the other insects causing them to die.
