    I just got a ton of DE (well, 50 lbs) thinking there are so many uses of it I would get a whole lot and save $$. It came with a list of things people use it for...de-fleaing their pets, cleaning the carpet of infestations, de-worming...and also uses for people.

    Does anyone here take it? What for and how has it worked? Thanks!

    yep, and yep.

    I either have it with water or with my breakfast yogurt a few times a week, but have been a little off pace recently. I noticed if I had it more frequently it tends to make me a bit overly energetic. Not wholly a bad thing but it's not my usual state either. [​IMG]

    I am also using it in the coop, run, and paddock. I think the current bag is going to last for some time, but I'm starting to use it more than I was.
