Diatomaceous Earth comes to us via the one-celled plant-creature called the Diatom. They live in the Earth's waterways and as they synthesize the water, they build up these mineral silica crustations around themselves. They only live for six days and after they die, these mineral crustations fall to the bottom of the water. In a few select areas in the world where it has been untouched for thousands of years, huge deposits of Diatomaceous Earth are built up, as seen in this picture to the left.
Diatomaceous Earth is hence not really "earth"; it's more like fossil shell flour - nothing more than the silica shells of these little one-celled diatoms. The micronized pieces of the Diatomaceous Earth powder are extremely hard and sharp. This is what makes it so effective for killing fleas, plus parasites and worms in animals and humans. This food grade Diatomaceous Earth is ground down into a micronized size and when you rub it inbetween your fingers really hard, you would have no idea that it is actually so hard and sharp at the smallest level. It just feels like any type of powder. However, to insects, fleas, tapeworms, mites and other parasites, it is just like shards of glass.
The Diatomaceous Earth gets onto the insect, cockroach, flea, or parasite, and as they move, these tiny microscopic sharp pieces scratch off the waxy coating of these bugs and they eventually dehydrate and die within an hour. You can put a coating of Diatomaceous Earth on your dog, for example, and it has the great potential to kill any fleas and ticks they are carrying more effectively than toxic chemicals, and in a very short time frame. Diatomaceous Earth (DE) has the potential to work effectively on bed bugs, mites, for flower gardens (just sprinkle it on the flowers and dirt), for organic gardening (effective against all garden "pests"), and for fruit trees (just mix with water and spray it on the fruit trees for pest protection). It is also great to feed about a tablespoon of DE to pets, because it has the potential to completely de-worm them in literally just a few days.
This product is food grade and humans can consume it too, but I recommend only consuming Diatomaceous Earth short term against tapeworms and other macroparasites. I know of some people who take it every day for managing parasites and cleaning the walls of the intestines, but it's not something I would personally intake on an ongoing basis. Although it is micronized and you can't really cut your fingers with it, no matter how much you pinch and rub it, still... it is still like glass on some level. For me, I would be concerned it might create polyps in my intestines or possible other issues if I consumed it long-term. In the short-term, I consider Diatomaceous Earth an outstanding product for simple, natural parasite/pest control for the whole family!
Diatomaceous Earth is Fossil Shell Flour from ancient one-celled plants called Diatoms.
DOSAGE: 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.

Diatomaceous Earth Health Benefits
89% Silica! There is no life without Silica. In 1939, Nobel Prize Doctor Butenant proved that "Life can not exist without Silica". In the 2003 book "Water & Salt" Dr. Barbara Hendel states that "Silica is the most important trace element in human health". Silica plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption and health. The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals such as iron.

The very NATURE of the Silica shells in Diatomaceous Earth adds value!
Lower High Blood Pressure
Of the thousands of people that are using Diatomaceous Earth, most that have high blood pressure have reported that it has gone down. It has been so thrilling to talk to people all over the United States and have them tell their stories. We are not just talking a few points---we are talking about LIFE-CHANGING numbers. Doctors are amazed--customers are amazed---You will be too.
Lower High Cholesterol
Just as Diatomaceous Earth health benefits include lowering blood pressure--it has also been lowering cholesterol!!. I have not talked with one person that has high cholesterol that has not had lower numbers after taking Diatomaceous Earth. Most are reporting 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on DE. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works!
Osteoporosis & Joints
Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement cannot correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.
For Osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the body's self repair process. Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix, and uterus combined.
Silica is responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. More and more research evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn silica into calcium that the bones need.
Natural Weight Loss
We have been getting hundreds of reports from all over the United States that DE is helping people lose weight. Everyone is saying that DE taken in the morning helps curb their appetite throughout the day. Just one more reason to take it every day!
Detox Your Body
Diatomaceous Earth health benefits reported to include detox! According to Kaayla T. Daniel, PhD, CCN and Galen D. Knight, PhD in their article "Mad as a Hatter" there is no better product to detox HEAVY METALS and RADIATION from your body than with Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth!
Nature's Internal Cosmetic
In Europe and Asia, Diatomaceous Earth health benefits are widely recognized to include use as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. They have no FDA.
Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, calluses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.
If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. A good silica supplementation program works far better than other products for maintaining healthier and longer lasting collagen.
Hair That Grows
Hair is nature's greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and strength.
Teeth and Gums
By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones, teeth and also lessens inflammation. .
Tough As Nails
Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking.
The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.
Silica lowers bad cholesterol and raises good
Silica fades age spots
Silica stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge. It is believed that diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal form.
Silica supplementation helps repair and maintain vital lung tissues and protects them from pollution. By maintaining or restoring the elasticity of lung tissues, silica reduces inflammation in bronchitis.
It acts as a cough decreasing agent. Silica tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx) and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system.
Silica supplementation keeps menopause free of stress and helps to prevent many unwanted side-effects of menopause
Silica works with other antioxidants to prevent premature aging and to preserve youthfulness.
Silica can help prevent kidney stones and heal infections of the urinary tract. It is a natural diuretic which can increase excretion of urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and restoring normal function to these vital organs.
The presence of sufficient silica in the intestines will reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract. It can cause disinfection in the case of stomach and intestinal mucus and ulcers. Silica can prevent or clear up diarrhea and its opposite, constipation.
Silica will help normalize hemorrhoidal tissues.
In regulating and normalizing the bowels, silica has a pleasant side effect; it can alleviate lower back pain, which often troubles the elderly.
Silica proves effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as well as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
