|There is no life without Silica !!
In 1939, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry, Professor Adolf Butenant, proved that life can
not exist without Silica.
In the 2003 book "Water & Salt" Dr. Barbara Hendel states: "Silica it the most important
trace mineral for human health!"
Silica plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship to mineral
absorption. The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures
for other important minerals such as iron.
Lets look at some of the benefits of Silica:*
Lower High Blood Pressure!
Of the thousands of people that are using Diatomaceous Earth, most that
have high blood pressure have reported that it has gone down. It has been so thrilling to talk
to people all over the United States and have them tell their stories. We are not just talking a few
points---we are talking about LIFE-CHANGING numbers. Doctors are amazed--customers are amazed---You will be
Lower high Cholesterol!
Just as Diatomaceous Earth has been lowering blood pressure--it has also been
lowering cholesterol!!. I have not talked with one person that has high cholesterol that has not had lower
numbers after taking Diatomaceous Earth. Most are reporting 40-60 points lower after only 2 weeks on
DE. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it works!
Just recieved this feedback from a user:
"I have been on DE for 6 months now and I just had my lab work done. My triglycerides have been
reduced from 495 down to 203. I have so much more energy and my hair and nails are growing so much better. My
husband has had High Blood Pressure and since being on the dirt, his BP is now in the normal range. It
has also helped with my varicose veins and I no longer have any pain from them.."

My joints feel so much better!!
Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our
bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement can not correct or stop this threatening and
crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica.
Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates
the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases
that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.
For osteoporosis, silica can stop the pain and even restore the body's self repair process.
Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in
their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix,
and uterus combined.
Silica is responsible for the depositing of minerals into the bones, especially calcium. It
speeds up the healing of fractures and also reduces scarring at the site of a fracture. More and more research
evidence shows that through a transmutation process, silica is turned into calcium when it is needed. That is why
some scientists refer to silica as a precursor of calcium. Even when calcium is insufficient, the body can turn
silica into calcium that the bones need.
Natural Weight Loss!
We have been getting hundreds of reports from all over the
United States that DE is helping people lose weight. Everyone is saying that DE taken in the morning helps
curb their appetite throughout the day. Just one more reason to take it everyday!!
Nature's Internal Cosmetic!
In Europe and Asia Diatomaceous Earth is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin,
nails, bones, and joints. They have no FDA.
Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing
inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica can help slow the degenerative process of connective
tissue. With silica, vitality and life, which are often lost as the years accumulate, can be naturally maintained
or even restored to your skin. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body
has enough silica glucosaminoglycane, the collagen will make us look younger. Silica helps with skin problems and
injuries including itching, rashes, abscesses, boils, acne, callouses, warts, eczemas, burns, frostbite, benign
skin sores, insect bites and bed sores.
If you regularly follow a silica regimen, your skin will keep its young look. A good silica
supplementation program works far better than other products for maintaining healthier and longer lasting
Hair That Grows!
Hair is nature's greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms
per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major
component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing
hair. Silica helps to prevent baldness, stimulates healthier hair growth and assures beautiful shine, luster and
Teeth and Gums!
By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents
bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that causes the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth
loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones, teeth and also lessens inflammation.
Tough As Nails!
Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on
average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will
beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to
The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth.
Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting
collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a
beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.
- Silica lowers bad cholesterol and raises good
- Silica fades age spots
- Silica stimulates metabolism for higher energy levels
- Diatomaceous earth has a negative charge and bacteria has a positive charge. It is believed that
diatomaceous earth sweeps bacteria out of the body by trapping it in its honeycomb shaped skeletal
- Silica supplementation helps repair and maintain vital lung tissues and protects them from pollution.
By maintaining or restoring the elasticity of lung tissues, silica reduces inflammation in
- It acts as a cough decreasing agent. Silica tones the upper respiratory tract (nose, pharynx, larynx)
and reduces swelling because of its positive action on the lymphatic system.
- Silica supplementation keeps menopause free of stress and helps to prevent many unwanted side-effects
- Silica works with other antioxidants to prevent premature aging and to preserve youthfulness.
- Silica can help prevent kidney stones and heal infections of the urinary tract. It is a natural
diuretic which can increase excretion of urine by 30 percent, thus flushing the water-excreting system and
restoring normal function to these vital organs.
- The presence of sufficient silica in the intestines will reduce inflammation of the intestinal tract.
It can cause disinfection in the case of stomach and intestinal mucus and ulcers. Silica can prevent or clear
up diarrhea and its opposite, constipation.
- Silica will help normalize hemorrhoidal tissues.
- In regulating and normalizing the bowels, silica has a pleasant side effect; it can alleviate lower
back pain, which often troubles the elderly.
- Silica proves effective with female discharge, abscesses and ulcers in the genital area and cervix, as
well as mastitis (especially for breast feeding mothers).
- The intake of silica acts as a supportive treatment for inflammation of the middle ear. Because of the
beneficial effectiveness on the lymphatic system, silica can be used for swelling of the lymph nodes in the
- Has anti-inflammatory disinfecting, absorbing and odor binding effects.
- Silica can normalize circulation and regulate high blood pressure (hypertension).
- Silica can decrease vertigo, headache, tinnitus (buzzing of the ears) and insomnia.
- Silica can help diabetes by promoting synthesis of elastase inhibitor by the pancreas.
- Silica can help arterial disease by strengthening the blood vessels. Studies confirm that with age,
silica disappears from the aorta, the heart's key blood vessel, thus weakening its critical connective tissue
and resulting in a greater cardiac risk.
- Silica can help prevent Tuberculosis.
- By improving the elasticity of the joints, silica helps rheumatism.
- Silica has inhibitory effects on coronary diseases.
- Silica can help avoiding or alleviating Alzheimer's disease by preventing the body from absorbing
aluminum and may flush out aluminum from the tissues. Silica can stimulate the immune system.
Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 mg. In years past, our bodies would get enough silica
from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient
depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total
In my studies and searches of the internet, people are taking 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons of
Diatomaceous Earth every day. Myself and my family take 1 heaping tablespoon per day. We mix it with
grapefruit juice. Others are mixing it with water, soda pop, juice, or whatever liquid they enjoy. Some are
even putting DE in protein shakes, applesauce and yogurt. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade and very
pure. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent
settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before
sleeping. No worry about getting too much--any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated
through the blood stream, kidneys and intestine.
