A combination of plant based dewormers and diatomaceous earth. Each ingredient effects the worms in a different way to attack them from all fronts. This also allows our Worm Aid to fight worms in both the digestive tract and blood stream.

It may be a simple recipe, but you can feel good about giving your pet these natural ingredients rather than chemicals.

Ingredients: Diatomaceous Earth, Neem Leaf, Pumpkin Seed, Turmeric

For more information: A Naturally Effective Dewormer

Diatomaceous Earth (DE)
DE works mechanically to physically cut worms in the intestines. It is made with fossilized sea creatures called diatoms. It has the consistency of flour and feels like a dry powder to mammals. However, to insects and intestinal parasites it is sharp and damages them. DE has been proven to work as a dewormer in several studies and species. DE Plus contains food grade DE to ensure it is safe for pets to consume. It can take care of all kind of parasites, such as roundworm, nematodes and tapeworm.

Neem Leaf
While neem has been demonstrated several times to be anti-parasitic for external parasites, it can also be useful for internal parasites - right down to the bloodstream! The active compound in the neem, azadirachtin, goes into the bloodstream once consumed, and can therefore directly target heartworms.

Pumpkin Seed
Pumpkin seeds work against worms in two ways. The first is similar to diatomaceous earth, where it physically harms the worms. The second way is to paralyze the worms. This is done by a naturally occurring compound in the pumpkin seeds called cucurbitine. This means that worms that latch onto the intestinal wall, such as hook worm, will likely let go and then can be passed through the digestive tract and expelled.

Turmeric has been shown to lower intestinal parasite numbers by initiating cell death in parasitic organisms, but has also been shown to interfere with parasite growth and reproduction. Once exposed to turmeric the insects can no longer produce offspring. This greatly helps with parasites present in the gut since it can decrease the rate the parasites multiply over time. Both of these functions are believed to be due to the curcumin turmeric contains.
