Food-Grade Diatomaceous Earth by Perma-Guard™ is Mother Nature’s product and is safe for people pets and the environment. It is commonly called Fossil Shell Flour and is used naturally as an internal wormer, and for parasite removal in both humans and animals. Fossil Shell Flour diatomaceous earth (DE) is a source of trace minerals and as an additive for animal feed. There are many uses for this wonderful natural product and more ways to use it are being discovered every single day!
Fossil Shell Flour Diatomaceous Earth is microscopic fossilized shells composed of silica and at least 14 trace minerals. Being formed under water, they will not dissolve in water. In fact, even in the stomach of animals or birds, surrounded with powerful digestive juices, they pass all the way through the body almost completely intact. Only a very small amount is leached out. As it passes through the stomach and intestinal tract, a number of important things happen. These happenings occur as physical actions, NOT CHEMICAL, NOT NUTRITIONAL – JUST PHYSICAL! AND SAFE!
Our Fossil Shell Flour is Pure Freshwater Diatomaceous Earth. It is of the highest quality available, being greater than 99.5% amorphous silica and less than 1/2% crystalline silica. Food Grade Fossil Shell Flour Diatomaceous Earth is used for internal and external use. The popularity of Diatomaceous Earth is the result of word-of-mouth testimonials from consumers who are very enthusiastic about the results they have experienced.
Diatomaceous earth (DE) Fossil Shell Flour has been reported in scientific literature to absorb methyl mercury, E. coli, endotoxins, viruses (including poliovirus), organophosphate pesticide residues, drug residues, and protein, perhaps even the proteinaceous toxins produced by some intestinal infections. Pyrethroid insecticide residues probably also bind to diatomaceous earth, since pyrethrins from Chrysanthemum flowers bind to and are stabilized by this material. The only brand of pure DE currently recommended is from Perma Guard. Perma Guard’s Fossil Shell Flour has been approved by the FDA (as a 2% by dry weight food additive, as an anti-caking agent, or as a grain storage additive).
Perma Guard™ Fossil Shell Flour is amorphous (non-crystalline) and is Generally Regarded As Safe (GRAS), but as an extra safety precaution the dust should not be inhaled. Since it appears to pass inertly through the digestive tract, releasing only a few trace minerals, decide for yourself what dose works well, bearing in mind that taking large amounts my have some very uncomfortable effects.
“Detox”-ing one’s system too quickly might not allow enough time for one’s metabolism to re-balance, creating discomfort known as “healing crisis”. This discomfort may be nothing more than inflammation caused by a REAWAKENING immune system as it detoxifies and begins to attack previously unaddressed chronic infections. Working up the amount slowly from about a teaspoon to a rounded tablespoon over a few days or weeks may help to avoid this situation. A heaping tablespoonful, as much as we recommend, in water before bed or first thing in the morning, if one doesn’t normally eat an early breakfast, will allow the Fossil Shell Flour DE time to move through and absorb toxins from one’s digestive tract without interference and without absorbing nutrients from foods or liquids.
