Mined from the purest of deposits from prehistoric freshwater lake-beds, diatomaceous earth consists of finely milled silica shells of ancient microscopic freshwater plants called diatoms. Of 600 deposits in the U.S., only 4 rate in purity by FDA standards to label as "Food Grade". We are proud to say our diatomaceous earth comes from a mine that meets all FDA requirements to make it a food grade product. Our purity and safety also meets and exceeds requirements set forth by our government. We also are proud to say that all of our manufacturing procedures are compliant and exceed FDA requirements.
Because of FDA control and oversight of labeling, many wonderful natural, herbal or organic supplements will seldom if ever claim to be treatments or remedies for specific maladies. This is also true of Food Grade DE.
Many consumers consistently say that they're real happy about food grade diatomaceous earth for what they experience as better health, and have reported specific health benefits.
The typical food grade diatomaceous earth dosage for general health is roughly one or two heaping teaspoons a day (usually in the morning) in any beverage. Some report increased energy levels, so morning may be the best time to use.
- Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg.
- No unpleasant taste.
Take 1-2 heaping tablespoons and mix with water, soda or juice.
Silica does not dissolve; stir several times while drinking to prevent settling.
Do not take before bed as silica promotes higher energy levels.
