The diatoms (diatomaceous earth) for humans are a natural source of available silicon, and thanks to the specific spatial structure of the armor plates, they eliminate toxins and food deposits from the body and support the fight against parasites...

Our diatoms (diatomaceous earth) for humans have an amorphous form and can be used as a food additive (as opposed to crystalline forms). The unique properties of diatoms cause that they can be used as an anti-caking agent for food, food and medicine for people.

Some of the diatom shells are metabolised in the digestive system of humans, changing the chemical form from silica (silicon dioxide) to biologically active orthosilicic acid, which, getting into the body, has a beneficial health effect on it.

Detoxing the body and cleansing the digestive system. The daily portion of diatoms for humans contains negatively charged particles, attracting positively charged harmful substances, such as fungi, mold, bacteria and drugs, endotoxins, pesticides and heavy metal cations; this causes binding of these substances in the cylindrical structure of the shells and leaving the organism along with the feces. The phenomenon of absorbing methyl mercury compounds [CH3Hg]+ was also found (mercury is released from the amalgam fill of the tooth, and while in the intestine it forms methyl mercury compounds) and protein-like toxins produced as a result of food poisoning. In addition, the frustules passing through the intestines, sweep away impurities from the body, without damaging the mucous membranes and the walls of the digestive tract. After a few months, intestinal diatoms are cleaner, which gives many health benefits resulting from the more effective absorption of nutrients.

During the detoxification of the body may appear unwanted symptoms, such as: tiredness, weakened concentration, headaches, hormonal disorders, swelling, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, skin changes, etc. These symptoms subside at a rate depending on the degree of toxicity of the body and are a natural reaction of the body to get rid of toxins.

Parasites. Diatoms help eliminate parasites, including so-called „worms”. If you suspect you have parasites, it is recommended to take additional digestive enzymes to enhance the process of decomposing dead organisms. organizmów. 

Improving the body’s fitness thanks to silicon (Si) supplementation: 

  • better condition of skin, hair and nails: hair and nails are shiny and less brittle; the use of diatoms increases the supply of Si to the connective tissue
  • prevention and reversal of osteoporosis, improvement of bone fracture healing: Si plays an equally important role in bone formation and reconstruction as calcium
  • less risk of injury, less arthritis, acceleration of wound healing: Si promotes the formation of collagen and improves the condition of connective tissue present in cartilage tissues, tendons, ligaments and vascular system
  • regulation of blood pressure: the presence of Si keeps the blood vessels in good flexibility and consistency
  • the pH of natural diatoms is neutral: they do not cause acidification of the body
  • increase the body’s resistance and well-being
  • reducing the tendency to constipation
  • less joint pain and back pain
  • support for the prevention of Alzheimer’s disease

 Application in cosmetics:

  • as a mask for oily complexion
  • as a delicate peeling, for example with the addition of soda
  • for cleansing the scalp in a conditioner or shampoo
  • as a backfill with irritated skin

Recommendations and precaution

  • Do not allow diatoms to enter the eyes, as they may cause their dryness.
  • Avoid long-term inhalation of high concentrations of the product, as this may lead to irritation of the respiratory system. Wear a face mask (or take care) especially if you have problems with your lungs and respiratory system or if you have asthma.
  • Never use crystalline diatoms or those that do not have food quality. It may cause damage to your or your pets’ body.
  • Natural diatoms as a food additive can not be used as a substitute for a varied diet. Food additives are not a substitute for a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle. Do not exceed the recommended dose for consumption during the day. The traditional use of diatoms as a food additive does not ensure the desired results in one hundred percent.
  • Natural diatoms, as a food supplement, do not substitute for diagnosing any health problems or diseases without consulting the appropriate doctor. If you or your child are taking medication, contact your doctor before using natural diatoms to discuss any interactions with medication. Contact your doctor also if you have doubts about the use of diatoms.
