Diatomaceous earth (DE, Diatom) is a natural product used as a feed supplement and for litter beds in poultry and other livestock. Currently approved in the EU under Fami Qs, and by UFAS and Organic farmers in the UK for use in livestock feed.

Hemexsan powder features silica which is a vital ingredient for robust and productive animal health. There is a well documented link between low silica levels in animals and sub-optimal health and production levels. As it is common for animalfeed to lacking in silica content, most animals
experience the negative effects of silica deficiency.

Silica has a direct effect on the animals through the nutrients and trace elements contained in silica, that are passed through its system, that the animal is highly unlikely to get in any other way. Silica also has a mechanized effect on the animal which directly affects many facets of the digestive
system as well as controlling internal parasites. Food grade amorphous silica must form part of regular feed patterns to ensure animals are healthy,
robust and productive as possible. When silica was used as regular feed supplement, animal health and appearance improved, production increased, infant mortality decreased.

Silica is directly related to the formation of bone and cartilage and collagen, and observation reports that silica can increase the collagen in growing bone significantly.
