A small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the blood stream as silica.
One of the benefits of Silica is that it helps to destroy bad fats.
In an Austrian study patients using Diatomaceous Earth lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points.
The benefits of silica are many.
In today's grains, there is a shortage of silica.
Years ago, the silica in our foodstuffs was adequate.
Today hybrids and depleted soils can supply only about 1/3 of the silica needed in our food.
DE is a simple and inexpensive way to get the silica your body needs.
Silica is important for the following reasons:
Less joint pain - Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process.
As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak.
Taking a calcium supplement cannot correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease.
The body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica.
Instead of healing, supplemental mineral calcium then accelerates the leaching of bone calcium.
This hastens osteoporosis and similar diseases.
For osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the bodies' self repair process.
Silica helps to deposit minerals into the bones, especially calcium.
It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture.
Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.
Beautiful skin – In Europe and Asia DE is a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints.
Due to ageing, tissue degeneration accelerates when connective tissues lose their moisture retention abilities.
Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue.
Collagen, mainly made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together.
If our body has enough silica, the collagen will make you look younger.
Silica helps with skin problems and injuries.
When used externally or internally it is beneficial for many skin ailments.
These include itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, calluses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bedsores.
If you follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look.
Hair that shines - Hair is nature's greatest beauty enhancer.
Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as healthy bones that contain 100 micrograms per gram.
Silica is a major component of hair.
Healthier teeth and gums - By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth.
Silica prevents bleeding gums, and gum atrophy.
Also, it slows recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could lead to tooth loss.
Stronger nails - Nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month.
With enough silica fragile nails become normal within a short time.
Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails.
It improves their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.
There is NO one perfect way to take DE.
The following is a general suggestion for use.
Start with 1-2 teaspoons per day mixed in liquid or food.
There is no unpleasant taste.
Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling.
Increase to 1-2 tablespoons twice a day.
As a general precaution some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is better not to take it right before sleeping.
Don't worry about getting too much.
Excess DE is eliminated.
