Diatomaceous Benefits

What is Diatomaceous Earth?

Diatomaceous earth is a white, porous, sedimentary rock that is naturally-made from the fossilized remains of diatoms. Diatoms are one of the types of unicellular phytoplankton that are surrounded by silica-rich cell walls. The silica found in diatomaceous earth is an essential mineral that is needed by plants, animals, and humans to grow and remain healthy.

Health Benefits of Diatomaceous Earth

Internal Parasite Control

Diatomaceous earth has been proven to be effective in killing internal parasites such as intestinal worms and other harmful organisms in humans and animals. Because diatomaceous earth is crushed into sharp shards, it can efficiently eradicate harmful organisms in the blood and digestive system of mammals. These razor sharp shards work by slicing the joints of the parasites, causing them to die and be expelled from the body. As a result, the body will experience better bowel movements and further improve health and overall well-being.

Blood Pressure Control

Diatomaceous earth is also a great substance for people who are suffering from high blood pressure. By incorporating food-grade diatomaceous earth into your diet, hypertension can be regulated as it reduces the levels of your blood pressure by assisting in the liquification of stubborn fat deposits and bad cholesterol's.

Enhances Health of Bones, Nails, Skin, and Hair

Another health benefit that makes diatomaceous earth so appealing is that it nourishes dehydrated skin, damaged hair, weak nails, and brittle bones. By taking this substance as a daily supplement, the body will begin to revitalize itself, resulting in more skin elasticity, nail strength, stronger hair, and healthier bones.

This makes silica an essential mineral for preventing osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. In addition, the silica found in diatomaceous earth is also known for preventing hair loss and baldness.

Removes Harmful Free Radicals

Silica not only contains a number of essential vitamins and minerals that are needed by the body to make its bones, hair, nails, and skin healthier, but it also detoxifies the body to prevent various kinds of diseases. This is one of the most important benefits of diatomaceous earth as it improves your overall health by eradicating harmful free radicals in the body such as heavy metals and inorganic toxins that cause accelerated aging and disease.

Diatomaceous Earth With Silica

With all of the health benefits that diatomaceous earth can provide to the body, this is one of the only minerals found on earth that can literally prevent and reverse health problems and extend longevity.

    What percent of crystalline silica is in your product?
    There is no mention of this in any of your information, but I have read 1 % and .5 % on other sites that are selling DE.
    Thank you.

  2. nancy strayer

    will this help to lose weight if taken on a daily basis???? Is there a certain amount need to be taken for weight loss???

    • Mary Gaffey

      Just very concern on it if you do lose weight.

  3. Jan P. Lopez

    Please send more information on food grade DE that would be worth the while of a raw vegan .

    Thank you ,

    I bought some diatomaceous earth from an organic food supply place in australia. I thought to use it for vegetable garden bugs and then found out it was a wormer for pets – and people come to that. I understand I could put it on my dog and cats coats to deter fleas too, but need to learn more about dosage and quality of there D.E. so I assume yours would be purer and suitable for human consumption and by extraction, what dose of your human quality product would be ok for my dog and cats. I don’t want to take risks with their health but the price of those worming things are really excessive, to say nothing of their side effects. would appreciate your reply…

      I have given my 40lb. puppy Food Grade DE for the last 8 years and she is very healthy. When her vet asks what I give her for worms, I reply DE every day. They just say OK and that is that. No side=e-effects at all. I got my at the local feed store. I am still working out of the only bag I have ever purchased. Also good to sprinkle on your door threshold to kill any crawly bugs.

      Food Grade D.E. is listed on the FDA’s G.R.A.S. list or Generally Recognized As Safe list.

    I am waiting on a response for my comment I wrote

  7. Karyn

    I was really excited to find this information. I have used DE as a supplement for my pets because of it’s ability to eliminate parasites but had NO IDEA it could be so beneficial in so many ways to humans. As I get older, hair and nails have become brittle and weak, can’t wait to see if this helps with those! Thank you!

  8. J.E.Phillips

    I don,t know if it is a miracle but my wife tested positive for cancer in Sept. 2012 and now tests shoiw no evidence of cancer anywhere. her lungs ars clear and blood tests show no cancer whatever.Thank you DE

    • Zilverb

      Thank you, J.E. Phillips! This is exactly the information that I had been seeking.
      Sincerely yours,

    How do you take it? How much and how often and how long?

    • admin


      Thanks for commenting. With our SilaLive product, and most other D.E. supplements, it is a scoop mixed into your favorite juice, shake, or water. I personally have been taking SilaLive 5 days a week for the last year and love it.

      We recommend starting out in about a 1/2 tablespoon then working your way up to 1-2 tablespoons. That way you don’t go through a period of detoxing that would be unpleasant (assuming you are super unhealthy).

  10. Dave Melly

    I have heard that DE can help with psoriasis. Is this true ?

  11. catherine monday

    I purchased DE some time ago, since then I moved. Because I did not want the paper bag it came in to become damaged in the move, I put the DE bag in a plastic bag. I just opened up the DE to begin taking it again and now it has the taste of the bag, a bit like laundry detergent smells. Apparently it was one of those trash bags that keep the odor of trash from smelling so bad. Will this taste the DE absorbed be harmful to me? I hate to toss out the whole bag, but don’t need to make things worse inside my body.


    • Adrianne

      You will notice that their product comes in a plastic jar

  13. Mary Moore

    Would diatomaceous be harmful if put up your hoohoo? My sister in law was worried about bugs and made a paste of this and teetree oil, now she is having a lot of pain.

    • annie

      Mary Moore, This is not a joke. or is your’s a joke?

  14. Gerardine

    Just wondering about your profuct and where does it come fromg

  15. Frances

    My husband and I have been taking diatomaceous earth for almost 20 years. One tablespoons in one cup of water two or three time a day. We just turn 70 and we take natural supplements but no medications. We are not overweight anymore and feel young again. It can’t hurt to try it. We always recommend it to family and friends who tell us about the great results.

  16. Frances

    Diatomacieous earth for human consumption is process different and we feel better and healthier by taking it for better health. One tablespoon in 1 cup of water two or three times a day. Great for food poisoning or heart burn.
    It is also good for plants, pets , and it kills bugs and worms.

  17. Kerry

    I feel amazing now that I take DE daily. I also give it to my 6 year old daily (smaller dose of course) 1 teaspoon daily.

    I take 2 big tables spoons daily in water. 1 tblespoon in morning and one at night before bed.

    You should also look into 35% food grade hydrogen peroxide. You HAVE TO READ THE BOOK FIRST THOUGH. Called ” The One Minute Cure”, by: Madison Cavannah.

    Also, “The Amazing Liver and Gallbladder Cleanse” by: Andreas Moritz.

    Lastly, there are many health channels on YouTube you can watch about natural health products. One of my recent favorites is called “A Place To Heal” – the lady’s name is Marie.

    Hope this helps.

    God Bless
