Want To Know about the Benefits Of Diatomaceous Earth?

If you are not sure what Diatomaceous Earth is, then this article is for you, especially if your journey into natural health, wellness and healing is just beginning.

Diatomaceous Earth is in fact fossilized Phytoplankton, found way down on the seabed and can be dated to 20-50 million years ago when it existed much like an algae.

There are many benefits associated with this natural product but let’s examine what it is made up of first. Diatomaceous Earth is the second most prevalent element on the planet to oxygen and contains around 84% Silica.

Other minerals found in it include, magnesium, calcium, sodium, iron and other trace minerals our body needs to maintain good health. Overall, it is very effective at maintaining the structure of our body.

Detox & Cleanse

Diatomaceous Earth can remove aluminum from the body tissue, so it is a very good product to add to the daily dietary plan for Alzheimers patients specifically, but the whole human population as well, because many things we put on our body everyday have aluminum in them like food products, drinks and particularly personal care products including deodorants, shampoos, conditioners and cosmetics.

Ever wondered why the incidence of brain degenerative diseases is growing on a daily basis?? Now you know.

Diatomaceous Earth is also a great cleanse for intestinal wall, leading to better bowel movements and a healthier colon environment. This enables the effective absorption of nutrients into the bloodstream, giving us greater energy and better sleep patterns. No more constipation and/or diarrhea.

It can also cleanse the digestive tract of parasites and as it moves through the digestive system it is a bit like a vacuum, absorbing fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides, drug residues, ecoli and heavy metals. They are then passed out of the body.

Promotes Collagen Production   

Diatomaceous Earth promotes collagen production because of the high silica content. This has the effect of making the skin look more youthful and plump as well as making our hair and nails grow faster and stronger.


If you would like healthier joints then you need to be taking Diatomaceous Earth. It increases your bone mass simply because the silica makes the bones fuller (because of the collagen). In fact, our bones contain more silica than calcium.

Teeth & Gums

Diatomaceous Earth supports healthy teeth and gums, promoting harder enamel, that can prevent cavities and preserve your teeth. It can also assist with bleeding gums, gum atrophy and recession.

Other benefits include:

  • Improved digestive health & better liver and colon function
  • Repair and maintenance of the lung tissue
  • Lowers blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Addresses Osteoporosis and joint issues
  • Cough decreasing agent and reduction of swelling because of positive action on the lymphatic system
