Nature gives us everything we need, including an effective dewormer.
Wholistic Diatomaceous Earth (DE) consists of the dried skeletons of microscopic sea creatures called diatoms. Wholistic Diatomaceous Earth is a safe, non-chemical alternative to chemical dewormers. Wholistic Diatomaceous Earth™ comes from fresh water deposits.
There are many differences in the quality of DE
First you need to make sure that the product is actually food-grade and certified by the FDA. Many companies will simply put "food-grade" on their label even though it is not (much like the word "organic" or "natural"). You need to understand where you are buying from and should be buying from a reputable, FDA certified company. There are hundreds of deposits in the US of which only 4 are FDA certified to be food-grade.
This DE is from fresh water deposits
DE from saltwater is not as effective as those diatoms from freshwater; Their shell is less fragile. Also, diatoms from saltwater contain many more species of diatoms and sediment leading to a less effective product.
Clay and sediments effects on DE
This DE is analyzed to have less clay and sediment than other food-grade DE which again, makes them less effective. This clay and sediment clog the pores of the diatoms. Clean, open pores are critical to DE working effectively. With that being said, this DE is truly a pure, more effective product.
