Diatomaceous Earth – Ultra Fine Grade
The main component of diatomaceous earth is silicon dioxide. This naturally occurring substance is mined from old lake beds. It’s composed of diatoms that have fossilised over millennia in old fresh water lakes.
Whilst we can no longer advertise this product as food grade due to a clamp down by trading standards (who don’t want any clays advertised this way), we know many people that love using it internally.
Diatomaceous earth is the fossilized shells of microscopic water-dwelling organisms known as diatoms. Diatoms are plants (algae or phytoplankton) that are the primary food source for marine life. These plants have been part of the earth’s ecology since prehistoric times, yet their species still exists today in both salty and fresh waters all over the world.
Ingredients : 100% Diatomaceous Earth (amorphous non crystalline silica)
From the ancient sea bed of the Laguna de Zacoalco in Mexico
Diatomaceous earth is 89% – 95% amorphous silica, it also contains 15 essential trace minerals including phosphorous, selenium, calcium, sodium, potassium, magnesium, copper, zinc and iron.
As well as the trace minerals, fossil shell flour particles are negatively charged. Heavy metals, bacteria and viruses, pesticides, drug residues and E-Coli are all typically positively charged.
Diatomaceous earth is a natural powder that works in a purely physical/mechanical manner with no chemical toxicity and no odour.
At Detox Trading we sell a large range of clays which you can check out here.
