The Silica benefits in Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth (DE) are numerous.
Silica supplementation not only improves the appearance of hair, skin and nails, it is also an important trace mineral needed by humans to survive and thrive.
Silica is a necessary component for healthy tendons, cartilage, blood vessels, and bones. It contributes to the health of almost all vital organs, including heart, liver and lungs.
In the past, humans consumed enough silica in their food. The silica once found in food is being minimized by modern farming techniques that deplete the soil and by the over processing of foods.
Silica is water-soluble and does not remain in the body for very long, supplementing with diatomaceous earth is therefore beneficial. As little as a heaping teaspoon per day in water, juice or a healthy smoothie will give you all the silica you need.
Along with the Silica benefits, Diatomaceous Earth also removes harmful organisms from the digestive tract, stimulates digestion and increases absorption of nutrients.
