Mined from the purest of deposits from prehistoric freshwater lake-beds, diatomaceous earth consists of finely milled silica shells of ancient microscopic freshwater plants called diatoms. Of 600 deposits in the U.S., only 4 rate in purity by FDA standards to label as "Food Grade". We are proud to say our diatomaceous earth comes from a mine that meets all FDA requirements to make it a food grade product.

Food Grade diatomaceous earth is 100% Organic.
There is no clay in our product.
Because of FDA control and oversight of labeling, many wonderful natural, herbal or organic supplements will seldom if ever claim to be treatments or remedies for specific maladies. This is also true of Food Grade DE.
Many consumers consistently say that they're real happy about food grade diatomaceous earth for what they experience as better health, and have reported specific health benefits.
The typical food grade diatomaceous earth dosage for general health is roughly one or two heaping teaspoons a day (usually in the morning) in any beverage. Some report increased energy levels, so morning may be the best time to use.
Taking DE internally for humans:
Start at ½ teaspoon each day for 1 week. Every week thereafter please increase the dose by ½ teaspoon. You will gradually increase the dose like this until you get to 1 tablespoon. Take that 1 tablespoon for 1 week and then call it quits for 2 weeks. Then start again at the bottom dose and work your way up again. So it would look like this:
Week 1: ½ teaspoon
Week 2: 1 teaspoon
Week 3: 1 ½ teaspoon
Week 4: 2 teaspoon
Week 5: 2 ½ teaspoon
Week 6: 1 tablespoon
Does not matter what time of the day or whether with or without food. Taking DE in the morning gives the benefits of silica throughout the day.
Mix with water, soda or juice.
Silica does not dissolve; stir several times while drinking to prevent settling.
