Diatomaceous Earth has been used for health and wellness concerning parasitic infections as well as rebuilding mineral reserves in the body. Diatomaceous Earth is high in silica, which helps to build strong hair, skin, nails, connective tissues, and joints.
Diatomaceous Earth works on parasites and has been used in the Home and Garden against bugs such as fleas, ants, and pests like slugs that disturb garden produce. Diatomaceous Earth is actually microscopic shards of fossils that are so sharp, they penetrate and pierce holes into bugs and parasites exoskeleton, exposing their soft bodies to oxygen and thus causing extreme dehydration.
The Dragon’s Den Herb Shop only carries Food-grade Diatomaceous Earth for internal cleansing and recommends to use only Food-grade Diatomaceous Earth products when using internally.
