This mechanical, rather than chemical killing action protects your pets and the environment because it doesn’t create chemically resistant “super fleas,” which become increasingly harder to eradicate. It also protects your human and animal family members as it won’t pollute your home or the water table with chemical residues that can linger in our bodies and the environment for many years making us more susceptible to opportunistic diseases as well as causing damage to the environment.
There might be other products like ours but we have the highest concentration of the active ingredient that flushes out heavy metals. Our animal friends have three times the amount of heavy metals in their small bodies than we do. The report for this information in on the FFO web site under the articles tab.
IS FFO FOR YOU?
Food Grade Diatomaceous Earth also known as DE is an overlooked multi-purpose element that our body isn’t getting enough of. Diatomaceous earth consists of fossilized remains of diatoms, a type of hard-shelled, one cell algae that is taken and ground into a fine powder. These diatoms are millions of years old and found from salt water and fresh water sources. The fresh water deposits are the ones pure enough for human consumption. 1 half to 1Tablespoon a day of this tasteless ingredient mixed in water or your favorite juice is said to do wonders for you inside and out. Studies have shown Diatomaceous Earth to significantly lower cholesterol by removing plaque and keeping arteries and veins supple. It also helps to regulate blood pressure. But that’s not all. DE contains Silica which has been proven to be vital to our survival. Not only does it make our hair and nails stronger, but it also helps our bodies absorb calcium and phosphorus. New studies are finding that silica may be more important for our bones than calcium and that it plays a major role in the healing of osteoporosis.
DE benefits don’t stop here. It’s a natural detoxifier. It binds with heavy metals such as mercury and aluminum in the body and draws them out for elimination. It’s also handles worms and parasites. DE can remove pinworms, tapeworms, and any other parasite taking up residence in your body and also works on Candida.
The shape of the diatom is similar to microscopic shattered glass. It scratches and punctures the outer surface of the bug or parasite and dehydrates it. That’s why parasites can’t build up a resistance to it.
DE, has NO known side effects except occasional temporary constipation if water intake is low but this passes. FFO kills intestinal parasites but will not affect indigenous flora as they have stronger cell membranes. Although pets and people have 1 to 8 pounds of bacteria respectively and good bacteria far outweighs the bad, if you’re worried about this just add FFO proprietary blend of pro-biotics for your pet.
Children and nursing women or pregnant have been able to use this product without incidence. As with any product, do your research and purchase only ‘food grade’. Diatomaceous Earth and not pool or industrial grade which is chemically treated and toxic.
Animals have more of these metals in their system because of their proximity to the ground, pesticides, vaccines, etc. and habits.
