The only known problem for people, mammals and birds that I have ever been able to find any reference to is inhaling it in.
For food grade diatomaceous earth, there is only the bother of breathing in any dust.
There exists another variety of diatomaceous earth that has been fiddled with so it can be used for pool filters. The pool grade stuff would be bad for you because it contains up to 70% "crystalline silica". My understanding is that if you work with the pool grade stuff all day, every day, for years, you could get cancer. Don't mess with the pool grade stuff. Genuine Food grade diatomaceous earth will contain less than 1% crystalline silica.
This article is really about the pure, food grade diatomaceous earth. I have to say "food grade" over and over or someone will quote a small slice and then bring up the pool grade type and say "its glass".
I have customers that ask will diatomaceous earth "the tiny particles cut my lungs?" Answer: No.
I think the truth behind these reports is that these folks heard how diatomaceous earth works, and when they would breathe in the dust, it would make them cough - just as breathing in flour or corn starch would make you cough.
The thought of the sharpness at a microscopic level is concerning to some, our understanding is that when diatomaceous earth becomes moist, the sharp thing is no longer happening. That's why you have to keep it dry when you use it.
As long as you are using food grade diatomaceous earth, you are perfectly safe. Even if you breathe in lots of it. Of course, if you are asthmatic or have lung problems of any kind, I would think breathing in any kind of dust would be a bad idea.
Diatomaceous Earth – also known as Fossil Shell Flour (Amorphous Silica). Love Your Gut Powder is food-grade, meeting the strict criteria of Food Standards Australia, New Zealand. This is NOT a silica or highly heated product -
Our Diatomaceous Earth is food-grade and safe however, there are different grades of DE that are not, so don’t just buy any DE product it to needs to be of the highest finest quality. Think of it like the difference between cheap salt for the swimming pool and Himalayan Sea Salt!
Does Love Your Gut Powder fit into my dietary requirements?
Yes. Love Your Gut Powder is gluten-free, vegan, non-GMO, dairy-free and sugar-free.
HOW DO I USE IT?
How do I take it?
Start off slowly, say one teaspoon per day for the first week. Once you’re used to it, you can build up to a full tablespoon. Be sure to drink lots of water throughout the day.
What does it taste like?
It has no taste and no odour.
When’s the best time to take it?
One hour before a meal is an ideal time to take it. I recommend having it with at least half a cup of water or juice. Some people even put it in their tea and coffee! But you can have it with food if you want to.
Can I take LYG forever or do I need to stop after a certain period of time?
We have customers that take it most days just once but, when feeling bloated -take it twice a day. It's very gentle - Think of it like brushing your teeth. If you don't brush for a day, a film of plaque arrives and it’s the same with your digestive system. Waste, plaque, bad bacteria builds up constantly so a little gentle cleanse with LYG works every day.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Diatomaceous Earth looks like a cylinder/honeycomb full of holes that has a negative charge. As the millions of cylinders move through the stomach and digest tract, they attract and absorb bacteria, fungi, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticides, drug residues, E-coli and heavy metals.
These pathogens are trapped inside the cylinder and passed out of the body. The bad bacteria has a positive charge and the good bacteria generally has a negative or neutral charge, as does Diatomaceous Earth.
Any larger parasites in the stomach or digestive tract are taken care of by the Diatomaceous Earth particles. This de-burdening of the digestive system results in a healthier digestive system and a healthier body.
WHAT ARE THE HEALTH BENEFITS?
What are health benefits of LYG?
Taken daily, It has the ability to sweep clear forms of bacteria out of the system. eliminating parasites and intestinal worms from the body and aids in keeping the bowels clean. Containing 15 minerals that are known to promote healthier, shinier hair, skin and nails. Helping lower cholesterol, blood pressure and give relief from arthritis pain.
Is Diatomaceous Earth absorbed in the blood stream?
A small amount of food-grade Diatomaceous Earth is absorbed into the blood stream. Travelling throughout the body, assists in cleaning and breaking up plaque in the blood vessels and destroy bad fats. Our customers have advised that taking LYG has lowered their cholesterol levels by as much as 40-50 points. To be transparent, this evidence is anecdotal - not from clinical trials. Have a read of our customer feedback
Would it rid the body of parasites and heavy metals?
It will help get rid of both parasites and heavy metals as it’s a gentle but effective cleanse. As it is negatively charged it ‘attracts’ positively charged particles such as bad bacteria and heavy metals. It’s not a quick-fix.
What’s the difference between amorphous and crystalline silica?
Amorphous silica is silica in its natural occurring state. It is a trace mineral which every mammal on the planet needs to gain full health. It becomes crystalline when it is exposed to extreme heat through volcanic activity or commercial manufacturing, e.g. the type of diatomaceous earth used in swimming pool, and other, filtration systems are crystalline silica. Crystalline silica is extremely dangerous when inhaled or ingested. It is not biodegradable.
Is there a difference between “Naturopathic Grade” and “Food Grade” products?
Our diatomaceous earth has been approved by Food Standards Australia and New Zealand.
Similar to the grading of salts – from Celtic sea salt to swimming pool salt, Diatomaceous Earth has many grades also. Supercharged Food's diatomaceous earth is food-grade and approved for human consumption at the serving indicated on the pack.
Does it also get rid of good bacteria?
Diatomaceous Earth will not absorb beneficial bacteria simply due to the fact that DE has a negative charge and bad bacteria has a positive charge. However, we recommend consuming probiotic-rich foods or taking a probiotic supplement to help the good bacteria within the gut flourish and grow, as the body has improved nutrient absorption, enabling more good bacteria to grow.
Why do you say the product is great for skin, hair and nails?
Our product is high in 85% Amorphous Silica which is proven to be great for hair, skin and nails. It also supports collagen production.
How can it help with weight-loss?
A toxic intestinal tract can result in weight gain and even obesity, as people lack the proper nutrients their body needs to promote optimum health. As a result, they continue to eat more foods in attempt to obtain nutrients their bodies are lacking from being toxic. Diatomaceous Earth helps gently sweep away the toxins from the digestive tract and improve nutrient absorption.
The recommended serve is one heaped teaspoon (6g) per day, is there any concern with overdose?
The product is a food, not a medication, so it’s safe to consume. It’s a gentle cleanse, not a quick fix so be sure to keep that in mind when consuming.
Will Love Your Gut Powder affect the effectiveness of medication?
It will not interfere with medication works as it’s a food, not a medicine. However, if you are concerned, you should check with a health professional.
I’m allergic to Spirulina. Diatomaceous Earthis algae, does that mean I’ll be allergic to it too?
As Diatomaceous Earth is fossilised, it’s no longer algae therefore it is safe.
Is Diatomaceous Earth okay for people with Crohn’s disease?
We’ve had a number of people with Chron’s who’ve had success with alleviating symptoms and have experienced improved bowel function and better energy levels. Please speak to your doctor if you are worried.
Is it safe to take when pregnant or breastfeeding?
Yes, it’s safe to take as it’s a food, not a medication. There’s many different grades of Diatomaceous Earth, so it’s important to take only the highest quality, food-grade Diatomaceous Earth like Supercharged Food’s.
Since Diatomaceous Earth eliminates all intestinal worms and parasites when fed in adequate daily doses, the body will better absorb the nutrients.
As LYG is high in silica, does it pose a problem for people with implants?
There’s no safety concerns identified at taking the proposed level of powder.
Is it kid friendly?
Yes, Diatomaceous Earth is a food, not a medication. We recommend smaller doses, based on the size of the child. We recommend school aged children start with ½ a teaspoon per day and slowly build up to 2 level tablespoons over time. Always speak to your doctor if you are worried.
