Diatomaceous Earth, Pure Food Grade
What is Diatomaceous Earth?
Earth (DE) is the fossilized remains of microscopic shells created by
one-celled aquatic plants (diatoms). Lumino DE is rated food-grade by
the USDA and considered GRAS (generally regarded as safe) by the FDA.
It is almost pure white and consists of 89-94% silicon dioxide plus
other trace minerals. Silica is a trace mineral every mammal on the
planet needs for survival.
Diatomaceous Earth packaged under the
Lumino label comes from an extremely pure fresh water deposit. It is
almost pure white and consists of at least 85% Silicon Dioxide. Darker
colored Diatomaceous Earth often contains an excess of other minerals
such as iron, or a high percentage of clay.
How Diatomaceous Earth works?
Earth ions attract unhealthy microbes, free radicals, and other harmful
metals. The trapped toxins pass through the stomach and intestines, and
are then excreted out of the body.
DE does NOT affect beneficial
bacteria, but removes toxins and parasites, resulting in a much
healthier body with a stronger resistance to disease.

coated with mucus other deposits. The advantage of this is: Regular
