Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.) is a powder made from sedimentary soft rock. The rock is high in silica and comes from fossilized algae known as diatoms—fossilized remains of tiny, aquatic organisms that have collected in the sediment of lakes, streams, rivers, and oceans. These deposits are found worldwide ranging anywhere from 100,000 to millions of years ago. Diatomaceous earth has several industrial uses and you may be surprised to know it has a primary role in wine filtration. As for health purposes, it can be used both orally and topically, according to Ginger Hultin MS RDN CSO, Spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. You can brush your teeth with it or use it to exfoliate your skin. Diatomaceous earth is also used to help treat high cholesterol, constipation, and for nail and hair health.*
