The small microscopic fossilized diatoms (Diatomaceous Earth) are cylindrical in shape & have lattice like walls made of Silicone Dioxide – Silica. As millions of these negatively charged cylinders move through the gastrointestinal tract, they attract, absorb & trap positively charged fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides, drug residues, E-Coli, & heavy metals which are then passed out of the body.
Any parasite that escapes this Hoover type action is then 'cut up' and/or killed by the hardness & sharpness of these microscopic skeletons of the diatoms. The result of this system is a cleaner healthier colon & therefore an over-all healthier body. A number of the silica in Diatomaceous Earth is absorbed in to the blood vessels & helps damage bad fats.
Purest diatomaceous earth is an effective means to kill bed bugs. In case you suffer from an infestation, you should seriously think about using this material. Not only does it do a superb job of killing bugs, it is also natural and non-toxic. This makes it safe to make use of where other bed bug sprays would not be recommended.
Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring substance. It is actually the fossilize remains of algae or diatoms. It is ground in to a fine powder and not harmful to humans. OK you don't need to eat the stuff, or snuff it, like you would not do that with sand or dirt!
