'Diatomaceous earth (DE) is an inexpensive natural compound with multiple uses. As a food grade powder it can be used to detox heavy metals, parasites, and microbial pathogens. It also distributes silica internally. Silica is an important component of bone matter. So is magnesium, which is to a lesser extent part of DE.
Without silica and magnesium, supplementing calcium alone is dangerous. Calcium’s assimilation into building bone matter depends on both silica and magnesium as well as vitamin D.
Without proper assimilation into bone matter, calcium remains in the blood and can literally calcify in the arteries, creating arteriosclerosis.'
