Where is your Diatomaceous earth sourced from?

Does it also get rid of good bacteria?
Diatomaceous Earth will not absorb beneficial bacteria simply due to the fact that DE has a negative charge and bad bacteria has a positive charge. However, we recommend consuming probiotic-rich foods or taking a probiotic supplement to help the good bacteria within the gut flourish and grow, as the body has improved nutrient absorption, enabling more good bacteria to grow.
What can DE be used for?
Detoxing, toothpaste, face mask, can be used in bath, pest control, mouthwash, odor problems.
What is Activated Charcoal? How can it help me?
Activated charcoal is a potent natural treatment used to trap toxins and chemicals in the body, allowing them to be flushed out so the body doesn’t reabsorb them. It’s made from a variety of sources, ours is made from virgin coconut shells. One of the best and common ways activated charcoal is used for is to whiten teeth, but with our combination of Diatomaceous Earth we use it for many things like: clay mask, whitening teeth, detoxing harmful toxins, smoothie recipes, snack recipes and many more.
Can DE help me lose weight?
Many people report that Diatomaceous Earth helps them lose weight. While we don't claim DE is a weight loss food, we do recognize the widespread testimonials of people who have lost weight while taking diatomaceous earth.
As far as we know, there isn't anything in Diatomaceous Earth that really makes it a fat burner, yet taking DE can benefit your overall health in ways that lead to weight loss. For example, DE can promote digestive health by cleansing your body of toxins that slow it down. Getting rid of these toxins improves your body's functionality, which may help you shed weight faster as you exercise and eat well. Detoxing also creates a general sense of energy and well-being, which can help you have the motivation you need to exercise.
How much Food Grade DE should a person take each day?
Recommended amount is 1 tablespoon per day in liquid of your choice such as smoothies, cold pressed juices, water etc. 10 days on and 10 days off. If you have digestive problems take 2 or 3 tablespoons a day.
Does Diatomaceous Earth ever get old or expire?
No, Diatomaceous Earth is a mineral and will never expire, it is already thousands of years old.
Will Food Grade DE interfere with any medication I am taking?
Diatomaceous Earth is a mineral silica. If you have any questions as to interactions with medications you are taking it's best to ask your doctor or pharmacist if taking a silica supplement will effect you in anyway.
Is it safe to take when pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes, it’s safe to take as it’s a food, not a medication. There’s many different grades of Diatomaceous Earth, so it’s important to take only the highest quality, food-grade Diatomaceous Earth. Since Diatomaceous Earth eliminates all intestinal worms and parasites when fed in adequate daily doses, the body will better absorb the nutrients from the food the person is consuming as these worms and parasites aren't consuming the nutritional value of the food and sucking the blood. This in turn provides higher quality nutrients to the unborn fetus, making it stronger and healthier as well.
How can something that kills bugs not be harmful for me and my pets?
Diatomaceous Earth kills insects by physical action not chemical. Hundreds of the microscopic particles get all over the insects body. As the insects move, it scratches the waxy coating off of them and they dehydrate and die. Because the particles are so small--they cause no harm to people and pets. It is a simple mineral - silica.
