Diatoms come in more than 25,000 different sizes and shapes.
The mineral content of the deposit varies a great deal as water currents mix in all types of material such as Arsenic, which can be deadly Perma-Guard DE is composed predominately of un-fragmented cylindrical frustules of the fresh water Diatom Melosira Preicelanica. The specific shape and size of this Diatom makes all the difference in the effectiveness of Perma-Guard Products.

Now OMRI Listed and Kosher! The tiny Diatom shells are not a food. They do not digest (except some of the trace minerals), they pass all the way through the body. Everything it does is either physical action or electrical action. The Diatom shell is a little cylinder full of holes. It resembles Rice Chex cereal. The cylinders have a powerful negative charge and the holes are the right size to absorb positively charged viruses and bacteria, hold them, and take them out of the body. Each shell can hold and neutralize many positive particles. Mixed with feed or eaten free choice the cylinders, by the millions, pass through the stomach and intestines and destroy parasites with absolutely no side effect to the animal. This is a physical action, not a chemical action. Flies are a major problem where large groups of animals or birds are confined , especially close to a populated areas. Companies and individuals spend a lot of time and money trying to solve this problem usually with little success. Along with the flies there is always odor and that can be as big a problem as the flies themselves. And as hard to solve. Suppose there were a simple solution to both these problems that costs just pennies a day per animal! Perma-Guard's Fossil Shell Flour® is the solution to these problems and a great help with some others as well. The solution is an all natural product with no harmful side effects Its not a drug, not a chemical and you feed it to your animals!
