Collagen… What Is A Vegetarian To Do?

Collagen, a current buzzword, is made of natural silica, the glue that holds body cells together.  In the KETOgenic diet, collagen is hydrolyzed animal connective tissue such as chicken bone broth or gelatin. Vegetarian collagen comes from Diatomaceous Earth (D.E.), an ancient ocean sediment.

How does D.E. work?  Many harmful things that enter our bodies have a positive electric charge.  When we ingest silica, which has a semi-conductive charge, body fluids develop a negative charge that gives off extra electrons. Charged mineral ions attract bad microbes, free radicals and other harmful compounds. Silica attracts and absorbs positive things that are small enough to penetrate membrane openings. Add a sugar molecule and you can trap toxins into food grade D.E.  Particles are then excreted because of the strong charge. Each silica shell absorbs a large number of positive-charged substances.They pass through the stomach and intestines, taking harmful compounds out of the body.

When ingested, D.E. starts working in different ways:

1st Moving through the stomach and digestive tract, D.E. attracts and absorbs harmful toxins, including bacteria, fungus, protozoa, viruses, endotoxins, pesticide/drug residues, E-coli and heavy metals.

2nd D.E. is # 7 on the mineral hardness chart. Diamonds are # 9. These minute, hardened D.E. cylinders pass through the small and large intestines. After weeks, the intestinal wall is no longer coated with mucus plaque.

3rd: A small amount of D.E. is absorbed into the blood stream as pure silica. Silica helps destroy bad fats. According to Australian studies, patients lowered their cholesterol by 40-50 points (ref:
