It's all about the Silica
Silica is one of the most abundant minerals
on the planet, but most of it is in a form that is unabsorbable by humans,
and there are limited numbers of foods that contain an adequate amount
of the absorbable form to supply the quantity our body needs.
Silica is the most important trace mineral for human health.
It plays an important role in many body functions and has a direct relationship
to mineral absorption.
For optimal health, the average human body needs to hold approximately seven
grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important
minerals such as iron and calcium.
Years ago, the silica found in our foods was adequate,
but with today's depleted soils only about one-third of the silica needed
by our body is supplied in our food.
In our youth, our tissues absorb and maintain high levels
of silica--enabling our bodies to remain flexible, resilient, and energetic--but
as we age, and as our dietary sources of silica are not meeting our needs,
our silica levels steadily decline until they become almost non-existent.
In fact, 80% of all of our body's silica is used up by the time we become adults.
Our bodies need silica regardless of our age, and even
when diet is not the primary factor in cases of deficiencies, we often
become deficient in this essential trace element simply through the aging process.
The effect of this steay decrease in silica levels is a progressive decline
in health, increasing fatigue and accelaration of the aging process.
Diatomaceous Earth, which is very high in the absorbable
form of silica, can replenish silica levels in our bodies, which can vastly
improve your health.
Calcium and vitamin D alone are not sufficient for bone
growth, density, strength, and flexibility.
In fact, our bodies cannot absorb and use calcium without the presence of silica.
Recent data suggests that instead of promoting healing, calcium supplements
actually speed up the leeching away of bone calcium and accelerates the
degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the
connective tissues in the human body.
Silica should be consumed daily because bones are composed
mainly of phosphorus, magnesium, and calcium.
However, these minerals need the presence of silica to be deposited into the
bones, especially calcium.
Silica hastens the healing of fractures and also diminishes scarring at the
location of a fracture.
A great deal of research evidence indicates that silica has the ability to
"morph" itself into calcium through a transmutation process.
Yes, silica actually has the ability to be turned into calcium when there is a
calcium deficiency and our bodies needs it.
Silica supports coronary disease repair by fortifying
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 also aids in the repair and maintenance of vital lung tissues and
defending them from pollution.
Silica is excellent for supporting bones and connective
Our bodies need healthy connective tissue for internal organs and the
largest organ, the skin.
And you probably know that degrading connective tissue, with age, is why
wrinkles appear and sking begins to sag.
Perhaps it is not age, but rather not enough silica that makes this happen.
Collage, which is made up mostly of silica, is the glue
that holds us together.
Collagen accounts for up to 75% of the weight of the dermis and is
responsible for the resilience and elasticity of our skin.
Our connective tissues consist of collagen, elastin, mucopolysaccharides,
and mucous carbohydrates which aid in moisture retention.
Their capacity to hold on to moisture keeps the connective tissue resilient
and has apparent importance in the prevention of premature aging.
All these valuable molecules house large quantities of silica.
Tendons and ligaments need silica for health and flexibility.
Silica is an important immune system booster.
It plays an important role in the immune system and its biological response
to harmful stimuli.
Silica is necessary for our bodies to produce antibodies that fight off
viruses, bacteria, allergens, and other invaders that our bodies view as foreign.
Silica is water soluble; hence, once it it in our bodies,
it is easily absorbed via the intestinal wall and is also rapidly
It does not accumulate in our bodies, so consistent daily supplementation
Although the body has natural detoxing systems
such as the lungs, kidneys, liver, and skin, a

Lumino Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth
Diatomaceous Earth (DE) is not earth or dirt.
It is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by one-celled
aquastic plants (diatoms).
Over the eons, as these diatoms fosillized, they retained their tubular
shape and holes.
Their shape and hardness produces extermely pure and consistent DE.
There are different grade of DE.
Of the 600 deposits in the US, only four are considered Food Grade.
Food Grade DE is considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA.
Within the Food Grade classification, there is a wide variance depending
on whether the DE is from fresh or salt water deposits, and how finely it
The best DE is a fine whitish powder that is odorless and tasteless.
It consists of 85-92% silicon dioxide and other trace minerals.
However, some DE products contain as much as 33% clay, making them less effective.
The silica in Food Grade DE is amorphous.
This is silica in its naturally occuring state.
It is a trace mineral every mammal on the planet needs for survival.
DE is dangerous when the silica in it is crystalized by exposure to extreme heat.
This type of DE is never considered Food Grade.
