Diatomaceous Earth (Fossil Shell Flour)



Diatomaceous Earth is 84% Silicon Dioxide (Silica).  There is no life without Silica!!!!

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.


Diatomaceous Earth is a product direct from Mother Nature. It is totally nature, pure and organic.

This is a FINE FOOD GRADE product. Please ensure that you only ingest Diatomaceous Earth that is FOOD GRADE. Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth is found to be amongst the most beneficial substances to improve the quality of your health and well being.


These specific natural forming fossils are created when a single cell micro organisms (marine type) die, their skeleton falls to the ocean floor and turns into a fossil shell.


There are so many different uses of Diatomaceous Earth (Fossil Shell Flour), these are just a few:


  • Lower Cholesterol Normalise circulation and regulate high blood pressure

  • Improving the elasticity of the joints, silica helps rheumatism Regulation and normalising the bowels

  • Stimulate the immune system

  • Body Detox and cleaning the colon

  • Balancing the body’s PH levels Strong hair, nails and healthier looking skin

  • Stimulates basic metabolism Contains 28 trace elements

  • Assist with remove of internal parasites (in humans and animals)

  • Silica deposits minerals into the bones (including calcium) which helps osteoporosis suffers

  • May alleviate Alzheimer’s disease by preventing the body from absorbing aluminium as well as other heavy metals.


There are so many other uses of DE such as a flea treatment and natural wormer for your pets.





Amorphous silica is its natural occurring state.  It is a trace mineral every mammal on the planet needs to live.  It becomes crystalline when it is exposed to extreme heat through volcanic activity or commercial manufacturing means.  The type of Diatomaceous Earth used in swimming pool, and other, filtration systems is crystalline silica. Crystalline silica is extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested.  It is not biodegradable. Perma-Guard Diatomaceous Earth contains less than 0.5% of crystalline silica and is considered GRAS (regarded as safe).


Perma-Guard Food Grade Fossil Shell Flour (DE) - amorphous silica as diatoms (microfossils) is more than 99% and the crystalline silica is generally regarded as less than 0.5%.



Fresh water deposits like ours have a consistent diatom presence.  Their fossilised shells have maintained their tubular shape.  This shape and strength of the fossil shell is critical to its effectiveness.  This deposit is also more consistent in its purity of other elements that have settled in it.  A fresh water deposit is confined to the run off water of its surrounding environment.  A fresh water deposit in the mountains, such as ours, formed when snow was pure and its run off provided the water source these diatoms lived in.  Salt water deposits contain a mix of types of diatoms of different shapes.  Their fossilized shells are fragile and break easily.  This renders them ineffective for our purposes.


The salt water deposits are less predictable in their sediments This product is available in either in a 1kg or 500gm packets.
