What is Diatomaceous Earth?
Health Leads food grade Diatomaceous Earth is an amazing natural product from the purest fresh water source. Diatomaceous Earth is also known as DE, fossil shell Flour, diatomite and kieselgur. This fine powder is made up of fossilized microscopic skeletal remains of a type of hard shelled plant like algae called diatoms. This plant like algae has been part of the earth’s ecology from the early beginnings of earths history. Our Diatomaceous Earth is a natural product and is not calcined or flux calcined. Please note: breathing in of dust should be completely avoided. Not all food grade DE is the same. The shape of the diatoms is very important, they should be tubular with holes in the centre on the walls. Also the DE should be from a fresh water source as this forms a harder and sharper shell compared to a salt water source DE. There are around 600 deposits of Diatomaceous Earth the United States and only four of these are considered food grade by the FDA. Other food grade DE can contain higher amounts of sediment and clay making the fossil shell flour a gray to brown colour. We are satisfied that our Food grade Diatomaceous earth is the purist form of fresh water DE available.
What are the Benefits of taking DE?
DE can absorb toxins and is a natural source of silica. Silica is vital for calcium consumption and there are many additional reported health benefits from using it.
