The Benefits of Dyna Powder and the Silica Within It.
There’s a lot of talk about Diatomaceous Earth (DE) — but what is it, exactly? What are its benefits? And how can a product like Dyna Powder (100% food-grade DE) potentially improve your life?
Some History on Silica, a Key Component of Diatomaceous Earth
Professor Adolf Butenandt, the Nobel Prize winner for chemistry in 1939, proved that life can not exist without Silica. Silica plays an important role in many bodily functions and has a direct relationship to mineral absorption. The average human body holds approximately seven grams of silica, a quantity far exceeding the figures for other important minerals such as iron. When ingested as a dietary supplement, a small amount of Diatomaceous Earth gets absorbed into the bloodstream as silica. Silica can help destroy bad fats. Indeed, some taking Diatomaceous Earth have lowered their cholesterol and blood pressure.
What Can DE Do for You?
100% food-grade Diatomaceous Earth has earned FDA-GRAS status, meaning it is generally recognized as safe for human consumption. While further research is necessary to determine the true potential benefits of DE for humans, many people claim that proper DE ingestion has helped lower their blood pressure, decrease cholesterol levels, ease joint pain, strengthen teeth and nails, and more. Let’s go over these claims and the possible benefits of DE.
One clinical trial has linked Diatomaceous Earthwithlower cholesterol. While further placebo-controlled studies are necessary to confirm these findings, the results are promising.
Joints Feel Better
Osteoporosis is a symptom of the aging process. As calcium in our body system depletes, our bones become brittle and weak. Taking only a calcium supplement cannot correct or stop this threatening and crippling disease because the body cannot assimilate and make use of the calcium without the presence of silica. Evidence suggests that, instead of affecting healing, supplemental mineral calcium, on the contrary, accelerates the leaching away of bone calcium and thus hastens the degenerative process of osteoporosis and similar diseases that affect the supportive and connective tissues in the human body.
For osteoporosis, silica can reduce pain and potentially help restore the body's repair process. Osteoporosis symptoms attack women primarily after menopause but the degenerative process starts much earlier in their younger days. More women are dying of fractures caused by osteoporosis than of cancer of the breast, cervix, and uterus combined.
Nature’s Internal Cosmetic
In Europe and Asia Diatomaceous Earth is used extensively as a health and beauty product for hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. Tissue degeneration accelerates due to aging when connective tissue develops an increasing inability to retain moisture when left unassisted. Silica may help slow the degenerative process of connective tissue. Collagen, largely made up of silica, is the glue that holds us together. If our body has enough silica glycosaminoglycans, the collagen will make us look younger.
Stimulate Hair Growth
Hair is nature's greatest beauty enhancer. Hair deserves to be pampered. Hair at 90 micrograms per gram is almost as rich in silica as are healthy bones, which contain 100 micrograms per gram. Silica is a major component of hair. Using a good silica supplement should be part of your ongoing hair care program for revitalizing hair.
Sturdier Teeth and Gums
By hardening the enamel, silica prevents cavities and preserves teeth. Silica also prevents bleeding gums, gum atrophy, and recession that cause the loosening of teeth, which could ultimately lead to tooth loss. Silica effectively fights ulceration and the decay of bones, teeth, and also lessens inflammation.
Tough as Nails
Your nail plates are complex protein structures that grow four to five millimeters per month on average. With silica supplementation, fragile nails become normal within a short period of time. Silica will beautify the appearance of your nails and improve their hardness, making them shinier and less prone to breaking. The restorative effects of silica will be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails, and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica essentially for the same purpose, as do other tissues. As we know, the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and beauty. Collagen owes that quality to silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that is more than skin deep.
The Bottom Line on Diatomaceous Earth
There’s still a way to go before we fully understand and unlock the full potential of DE and its benefits for human health. That said, many of our customers swear by the positive effects they’ve seen firsthand after using Dyna Powder, including the potential benefits listed here. Check out our product testimonials to hear what our customers have to say about Dyna Powder, 100% food-grade Diatomaceous Earth!

Daily silica needs of humans are 20-30 milligrams. In years past, our bodies would get enough silica from our diet. Unfortunately, many of the foods we now eat have lost their nutritional value due to soil nutrient depletion, food processing, and chemicals. Supplemental use of Diatomaceous Earth is essential to total body health.
In studies and searches of the internet, people are taking 1 or 2 heaping tablespoons of Diatomaceous Earth every day. Mixing can be with water, soda pop, juice, or whatever liquid they enjoy. Some are even putting DE in protein shakes, applesauce and yogurt. Our Diatomaceous Earth is Food Grade and very pure. There is no unpleasant taste. Since it will not dissolve, stirring several times while drinking will prevent settling. Some have experienced higher energy levels, so it is probably better not to take it right before sleeping. No worry about getting too much - any excess silica not needed by the body is automatically eliminated through the blood stream, kidneys and intestines.
Any food-grade Diatomaceous Earth uses, other than those approved by the EPA, FDA, or USDA, are strictly reports of what hundreds of users have done with Diatomaceous Earth.
