Diatomaceous Earth

Food Grade- safe for children, adults, pets, livestock

Diatomaceous Earth

Pure Freshwater Type Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is of the highest quality available, being greater than 99.5 amorphous silica and less than 1/2% crystalline silica.

What is Diatomaceous Earth?

Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth, also known as Fossil Shell Flour, is the fossilized remains of single-celled organisms called Diatoms.  Diatoms would eventually settle to the bottom of fresh water sources such as lakes and streams and over millions of years they were converted into silica as well as other trace minerals.  Safe for people, pets, and the environment, the resulting silica-rich deposits yield an eco-friendly and naturally organic product with a multitude of uses.

Why Diatomaceous Earth?

In today's world of mysterious additives, people are turning to all-natural products in an effort to stem the consumption of potentially harmful chemicals and toxins.  It's difficult to completely avoid these harmful substances...this is where Fossil Shell Flour plays an important role!

As Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth moves through the stomach and digestive tract, it attracts and absorbs bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide, drug residue and heavy metals.  Once absorbed, these contaminants are safely flushed from the body.

Food Grade Diatomaeous Earth's silica content is vital for calcium absorption, as well as the production of collagen and elastin, which prevents wrinkles.  It is an integral building block of connective tissues which include: cartillage, tendons, ligaments and the vascular lining. Silica has also been shown to strengthen the body's muscle and skeletal system, preventing injuries and speeding the healing of fractures.

Unlike most chemical-based cleanses, Fossil Shell Flour can be used indefinitely without the need to 'cycle'.  Continued use of this product can help maintain a healthy digestion cycle, and also provides a wealth of healthful silica and other minerals.  Much like a vehicle, regular maintenance of your body will have a long-lasting impact for years to come!

For People

For adults, take one heaping teaspoon once per day for the first two weeks of using the product.  After this introductory period, increase the amount to one heaping tablespoon.  Mix the appropriate amount into water, juice, or smoothies, preferably on an empty stomach.  Children can also use the product but should start with a half teaspoon and progress to a level teaspoon.

For Pets and animals

Fossil Shell Flour also provides many of the same great benefits to pets and animals.  Don't hesitate to share some with your four-legged friends today!

While Diatomaceous Earth works well in liquids for humans, we suggest that animals consume it through a food source such as canned food or applied directly to dry kibble.  Diatomaceous Earth in water will settle overtime, requiring you to agitate the water occasionally.

The guidelines below provide a convenient way for you to determine how much Diatomaceous Earth is suitable for a variety of different animals.


Small (< 50 lbs): 1 teaspoon, daily

Medium (> 50 ibs.): 2 teaspoons, daily

Large (> 100 lbs.): 1 tablespoon, daily


1/2 to 1 teaspoon, daily


2% of total weight in dry ration
