What is This Stuff?
Diatomaceous Earth has an organic origin coming from fossilized remains under ancient freshwater lakes that are now dried up. It is plant based, 100% pure & natural, is a raw wholefood and is proudly Australian.
It sounds quite weird when explaining how it was formed as it is actually fossilized algae that has remained untouched under these ancient freshwater lakes.
Up to 96% silica
Small percentages of sodium, protein, iron, calcium, magnesium and other trace elements. We have the Nutrition breakdown on the back of the packet for you.
The fossil flour/powder has up to 96% silica. Silica helps promote 'mineral balance between calcium and magnesium within a body. This balance helps with hormone balance and hormonal imbalances which can lead to osteoporosis' (www.victoriahealth.com) -
We are lucky in Australia to have a few deposits of this amazing product.
