Collagen and DE

Collagen, pretty amazing!  Collagen and DE (Diatomaceous Earth) are very connected.  It is known, that the supporting collagen underneath the skin enhances elasticity and soft, smooth skin.

Collagen however owes that quality to DE which is actually Amorphous Silica, which provides a beautiful complexion that comes from the inside out.

Silicon is important for "optimal collagen synthesis and activation of hydroxylating enzymes", which improves skin strength and elasticity.

Therefore it may be most noticeable on your hair, skin, nails and teeth. Our skin and hair require silica basically for the same purpose as do other tissues. Silica allows your body to produce it's own "natural" collagen and so they go hand in hand.

Get Rid of Crusty Elbows
With Collagen/DE

My smooth elbows!

My own experience has been nothing short of amazing.  My skin is extremely soft now as well as my elbows, which have never been soft before. Not the norm to post pics of your elbows, but wanted to show how smooth they are now, wish I would have taken pics of before.

They were always cracked and sore, no matter how much lotion I used.  they even snagged on some of my clothing material. 

My  daughters can't get over how much smoother and less wrinkled my skin is now.

In regards to hair benefits, it was suggested that a higher silicon content in the hair results in a lower rate of hair loss and increased brightness.

Due to all these beneficial effects, there is growing interest in scientific studies evaluating the use of dietary supplements containing silicon.

Its use aims at increasing blood levels of this element and improving the skin and its appearance.

There are different forms of collagen supplements available. The most important consideration to be made, in order to select the best option, is related to safety and bioavailability.

I tried a natural collagen supplement for a while, but it had slimy texture, and I could not use it for very long.  I prefer the simplicity of the DE as a supplement.

Diatomaceous Earth is one of the most natural and safe supplement/minerals available to introduce healthy silica and produce collagen in our bodies.

Collagen is the major insoluble fibrous protein in the extracellular matrix and in connective tissue. In fact, it is the single most abundant protein in the animal kingdom. There are at least 16 types of collagen, but 80 – 90 percent of the collagen in the body consists of types I, II, and III.

The various collagens and the structures they form all serve the same purpose, to help tissues withstand stretching.

**Silicon is the second most abundant element on Earth, and the third most abundant trace element in the human body. It is present in water, plant and animal sources.
