Diatomaceous Earth, Silicon Dioxide, Preventing Cardiovascular Disease
Pharmacological action for Healthsil:
Diatomaceous Earth contains 84% silicon dioxide plus 14 trace minerals. It is not actually an earth but is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled plants called DIATOMS. Diatomaceous Earth is taken from fresh water deposits and is a 100% natural and organic source of silicon dioxide.
Silicon dioxide is an essential trace element in the body that is necessary for the formation of collagen for bones and connective tissue; for healthy nails, skin and hair; and for calcium absorption in the early stages of bone formation. It is needed to maintain flexible arteries, and plays a major role in preventing cardiovascular disease. Silicon dioxide also counteracts the effect of aluminium on the body and is important in the prevention of Alzheimer's disease and osteoporosis. It stimulates the immune system and inhibits the ageing process in tissues.
Silicon dioxide levels in the human body decrease with ageing. Together with silicon dioxide, Diatomaceous Earth also contains 14 trace minerals, including boron, calcium, magnesium, manganese and potassium. These trace elements aid in the efficient utilisation of silicon dioxide.
Diatomaceous Earth consists of frustules and fragments of diatoms. These fragments are very hard and
"scrub" the walls of the small and large intestines as they move through the gastrointestinal system.
