Diatomaceous Earth contains 84% silicon dioxide plus 14 trace minerals. It is not actually an “earth”, but it is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called DIATOMS. Diatomaceous Earth is taken from fresh water deposits and is a 100% natural and organic source of silicon dioxide.
Silicon dioxide is an essential trace element in the body that is necessary for the formation of collagen for bones and connective tissue; for healthy nails, skin and hair; and for calcium absorption in the early stages of bone formation. It is needed to maintain flexible arteries, and plays a major role in preventing cardiovascular disease. Silicon dioxide also counteracts the effects of aluminium on the body and is important in the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease and osteoporosis. It stimulates the immune system and inhibits the aging process in tissues.
