Supercharged Food Love Your Gut Powder is 100% organic diatomaceous earth (also called fossil shell flour). The information provided by Supercharged Food talks about the powder being able to clean out the accumulated build up of waste, toxins, metals and mucous in the digestive tract.
We spoke to our own naturopath about this before deciding whether it was a good fit for our store. The powder has the capacity to help flush toxins from the gut, but it also has the capacity to stir up your digestive system, so we advice caution and suggest this is taken after the advice of a qualified health care professional. If you choose to take it without consultation, please only take this product short term and consult with a medical professional immediately if you feel unwell.
What we're excited about though is the inclusion of fossil shell flour in our store for natural pest control. Fossil Shell Flour is comprised of around 84% silica and when ground up, has jagged edges. In the gut, it will 'scrub' your insides. Used in pest control, the sharp edges cut through the shells of bed bugs, fleas and more which kills them.
You can sprinkle it around pet bedding, through pet hair for fleas and more. If you have bed bugs, get 4 dishes, one for each leg of your bed, and put the flour in them. Any bugs that crawl up or down will eat the flour and meet their end.
Sprinkle it in your garden to reduce pests and add silica to the soil. It can help control slugs and snails and is safe for earthworms as they can digest it. You can even sprinkle it in kitty litter to reduce the odour in your home.
CAUTION: this is a fine abrasive powder. Be sure not to inhale the dust while using. It is best to use a dust mask if you're going to sprinkle it around.
