Regardless of what health based goal you have in mind, when you are planning to use diatomaceous earth, make sure it is food grade. Food grade diatomaceous earth is the only type of DE safe for human consumption. Here at, we are the only DE provider that meets food safety standards and regulations as set out by the FDA. Our facility features state of the art food production equipment to ensure that what you are getting the purest DE possible.

Diatomaceous earth is easy to take; simply add a teaspoon of it to food or drink and stir well. Because DE won't dissolve, be sure to stir vigorously before consumption. If you combine DE with something flavorless that has little texture, you might notice a chalky flavor and gritty texture, so we recommend you try DE in a smoothie, protein shake, or glass of OJ.

As you begin to take DE you should start to notice changes within the first few weeks. As the silica works its way into your system, you will begin to see your hair, skin, nails, appetite, and metabolism improving.

If you have any questions about how diatomaceous earth can help you refer to our Health Benefits page or contact us on Facebook or Twitter.

  • I have cirrhosis any interaction or mal effects from using DE? I do drink dandelion root tea which helps my liver function

  • Hello, I had heard of Diatomaceous earth powder to get rid of fleas and ticks, and used it for that purpose, the person that recommended it told me you could also eat it yourself, I never even thought about doing that! My sister in law introduced me to the food grade type, and showed me how her thinning hair was beginning get full and her nails got stronger. I was looking to help my nails, it won’t hurt if it makes my head fuller again. However, I was looking at the possible side effects and counter actions with my blood thinners (coumadin) to be exact, have you heard anyone complain or mention this in any of their comments? I propose to start taking it maybe 1 hour before I get breakfast, which is when I take my diabetes and heart medications my coumadin I take at night! Thanks, any comments on this will be greatly appreciated. Isabel
