    Default 6 Proven Diatomaceous Earth Uses and Benefits

    Dr. Josh Axe

    Diatomaceous earth (DE) — it sounds like a scientific term for a state of the planet, but it turns out it’s actually a natural product made up of fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms called diatoms.
    You may never have heard of diatomaceous earth before, but chances are you’ve consumed or used plenty of products that contained it. Some common products that contain diatomaceous earth include dusts, powders and pressurized liquids that are used on the outside of buildings, on farms, in gardens, and in human and pet foods.
    It usually comes in the form of a white powder and is also used in water filtering, food manufacturing, skin products and farming to naturally eliminate free radicals, viruses, insects, parasites and other harmful organisms by binding to them and drying them out. It also has the ability to improve the body’s use of calcium, improve bone mineralization, protect joints and fight effects of aging. And that’s not all.

    I have only used DE in the garden to kill pests, but find it hard to buy these days. It only seems to be available as a bed bug treatment in Oz. I'm not sure that your body would actually absorb the silicon when taken as a supplement? I would rather go for horsetail tablets, being plant-based.
