Diatomaceous Earth For Good Health
Diatomaceous Earth for Humans:
Food Grade DE has many reported human benefits. These benefits are realized because of both the physical action of the DE particle and the silica content that gets absorbed into the body.
Food grade diatomaceous earth has been reported in scientific literature to absorb methyl mercury, e-coli, endotoxins, viruses (including polio virus), organophosphate pesticide residues, drug resides, and protein, perhaps even the proteinaceous toxins produced by some intestinal infections. Food grade diatomaceous earth detoxes.
There are some features about food grade diatomaceous earth that correspond with its ability as both a digestive aid and a colon cleanser. The honeycomb skeletal form of diatomaceous earth is found, under microscopic evaluation to reveal a tendency to become filled and clogged with hard debris such as intestinal scale. Food grade diatomaceous earth has not been found to cause any insult to the mucosa or barrier wall.
Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge, wherein it is believed by some that food grade diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal form.

WHY IS YOUR DE LABELED FOOD CHEMICAL CODEX GRADE?
The ONLY kind of DE we sell is labeled "Food Chemical Codex Grade". This is "food" grade DE, though the "Chemical" sounds scary, it was labeled that way so that people would realize it isn't just to feed to humans or animals, but so people realize it can be used externally for fleas, flies, ticks, mites, bed bugs, and other insect pests in organic farming situations, etc., as it "acts" like a chemical by dehydrating insects, but it is NOT a chemical in the traditional sense of being a pesticide type thing.
• DE manufacturers who work in diatomaceous earth mines 5 days/week advise inhaling it is not a problem, and we have not had problems when inhaling DE in small amounts. IF you have asthma or some other lung ailment, either wear a mask or be very careful when using food grade diatomaceous earth.
Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg. In Years past, our bodies would get enough silica from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total body health.
In studies and searches of the internet, people are taking 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth every day. Some are even putting DE in juice, water, protein shakes, applesauce and yogurt. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade and very pure. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before sleeping. No worry about getting too much--any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.
