Pure Freshwater Diatomaceous Earth and is OMRI listed for organic use. It is made up of tiny fossilized water plants that are ground into a fine white powder. On a microscopic level, these tiny, sharp particles move through your system, attracting everything from bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, pesticide and drug residues, E-Coli, and heavy metals. FOSSIL SHELL FLOUR® is almost pure white and consists of 89% Silicon Dioxide (amorphous silica) plus 28 trace minerals which means more diatom surface area is available. More diatom area means greater absorptive capacity.
Collagen Repair and Restore
There's a reason Diatomaceous Earth is so popular overseas and is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, and nails. Collagen, which is extremely important for healthy skin, is mostly made up of silica. So when you are deficient in silica, your collagen breaks down more quickly, which makes the skin look old and dull. Taking DE, the silica can restore and repair the collagen in your body, giving you Healthier, Smoother Skin! Read more about Healthier Skin.
5 Tips for Healthier Skin
Want to have healthier skin? Diatomaceous earth and healthy
lifestyle choices can help delay the natural aging process and
prevent many skin problems, including age spots. Here are some
tips for getting healthier skin.
1. Stay out of the sun Sun exposure over time can cause
wrinkles One of the most important ways to take care of your
skin is to protect it from the sun. A lifetime of sun exposure
can cause wrinkles, age spots and other skin problems, and for
some, skin cancer. For the most sun protection: Use sunscreen.
Use a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15.
Reapply sunscreen every two hours. Consider laundry additives,
which give clothing an additional layer of ultraviolet
protection for a certain number of washings, or special
sun-protective clothing which is specifically designed
to block ultraviolet rays. Just use caution and common sense
about sun exposure!
2. Don't smoke Smoking can make your skin look older and give
you wrinkles. When you smoke, the the tiny blood vessels in
the outer layers of your skin narrow, which decreases blood
flow. This depletes the skin of oxygen and nutrients that are
important to skin health. Smoking also damages collagen and
elasticity, the fibers that give your skin its strength and
elasticity. That is where Diatomaceous Earth comes into play.
One function of silica (DE is over 80% silica) is to promote
the synthesis of collagen, fundamental in making strong,
shiny, healthier skin along with healthy nails and hair. So
take DE and stop smoking.
3. Be gentle! Treat your skin gently Daily cleansing and
shaving can take a toll on your skin. To keep it gentle: Limit
your bath time and use warm water, as hot water and long
showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Use mild soaps.
Strong soaps and detergents can strip oil from your skin. To
protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion
or gel before shaving. Shave in the direction the hair grows,
not against it. Always pat dry. After washing or bathing, pat
or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture
remains on your skin. Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is
dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type.
4. Eat healthy Healthy diets can help you look and feel your
best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean
proteins. The association between diet and acne isn't
clear but some research suggests that a diet rich in
vitamin C and low in unhealthy fats and processed or refined
carbohydrates might promote younger looking skin. There's a
reason Diatomaceous Earth is so popular overseas and is used
extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, and
nails. Collagen, which is extremely important for healthy
skin, is mostly made up of silica. So when you are deficient
in silica, your collagen breaks down more quickly, which makes
the skin look old and dull. Again, DE is at least 80% silica!
5. Watch your stress level Too much stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthier skin, take steps to manage your stress. Set reasonable limits, don't make your to-do list overwhelming! Take some time to do things you enjoy.
So for healthier skin, limit sun, eat right, don't smoke, gently wash, don't stress out and take diatomaceous earth to replenish the lost silica, which in turn helps the collagen for healthy, smooth skin! If you are planning on taking 2 tablespoons a day, 1 pound is more enough to last one month. If two people are going to be using Diatomaceous Earth Food Grade, you should order two pounds.Buy Now!

Silica has been shown to stimulate hair growth and has been
used as a treatment to prevent balding. Your hair is made up
of 90% silica, so it would make sense that it is so important!
Take one or two tablespoons of DE food grade daily, it gives
you enough silica to support healthy, strong hair! It also is
great for stronger fingernails!
What Doctors are SayingAccording to Dr. Theresa Dale in "Revitalize Your Hormones," silica acts as a stabilizing force in the body. It restores the necessary balance between calcium and magnesium, without which you'd experience hormonal problems. It stabilizes a number of structures, including bodily tissues, membranes and arterial walls. Your body also needs silica to help form collagen, the protein responsible for keeping your skin smooth and unlined. Perhaps most important, it facilitates your body's absorption of calcium, contributing to strong, healthy bones. According to Dale, silica works together with sulfur to give your skin and nails a youthful, healthy appearance. In terms of internal benefits, Dale writes that silica can boost your immune system and help keep your artery walls flexible, potentially preventing heart disease.
