Diatomaceous earth is a sedimentary rock that crumbles into a fine, soft, white powder. It is fossilized marine phytoplankton from freshwater lakes and is a powerful and non-toxic pesticide. When the diatomaceous earth powder touches bugs, it scrapes the insect’s waxy outer layer. The insects then lose their capacity to hold moisture, causing it to dry out. Diatomaceous earth is useful in the home and garden and may be used around pets and used internally or externally for people. Gaia Garden’s Diatomaceous Earth is food grade and has recently become popular as a dietary supplement.
Properties: It is claimed that Diatomaceous earth cleanses the digestive tract and supports healthy digestion while improving cholesterol levels and heart health. Providing the body with trace minerals, it helps to improve bone health, promote hair growth, strengthen nails and improve skin health.
Cautions: Food-grade diatomaceous earth is safe to consume, but do not inhale it. It can cause inflammation and scarring of your lungs.
