Thank goodness my red nightmare is over. I am enjoying "classic" Kratom effects once again. Thanks ILK for listening to my bellyaching. Here is the rest of the silica story by the way: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Silicon_dioxide

Thanks Don. Personally I wouldn't get within ten miles of a Kratom Swap Meet unless I knew the person very well. I can think of too many things that could go wrong under such circumstances. Swapping would mean trading opened bags/jars of powder in many instances which is problematic on its face. Just think of the misunderstandings that happen in a trusted retail environment (for example my own recent displeasure with the Red I have been using). On that note, I did get some green Maeng Da today and I think it;s going to work well. :-bd I'll save the red for the future. I guess "strains" are a real thing and rotating to some degree is wise. You see, I was working on a second 500g jar of red and just hit a wall I suppose. All it did is knock me out. I couldn't stay awake for more that 5 hours at a time. Live and learn (always the hard way in my case).

There is such a thing as food grade silica, and I try to take it every day. It's good for your nails/bones/joints, among other things, and can even help ward off a UTI. I take a light teaspoon, fwiw.

DE particles are extremely sharp and they work on a microscopic level by getting stuck between the joints of the parasite and cutting it into pieces.
DE also kills parasites and insects by dehydrating them. It scratches the waxy layer of these organisms, which in turn leads to loss of moisture.


I was joking about my bag of silica in another post, I think it was in this forum, and it's so very large because when I went to buy it it was priced not much more than bags that were a fifth the size, and even they are way more than enough for consumption purposes.

People use silica for pest control around the home, and on pets.
