Pearls can be crushed into a very fine powder and consumed as a tonic supplement. Pearl powder is rich in many minerals, but most importantly it contains a form of calcium that is 100% utilizable by the human body, the same form that the body uses to make our bones and teeth. The shiny coating of Pearl is a hard, yet simultaneously a very exible matrix, made from a protein called conchiolin. This matrix, when liberated by fine water-grinding (“levigation”) and consumed as a dietary supplement, migrates to our skin and improves the functioning and quality of our collagen and makes the skin much lovelier — finer, smoother, better hydrated, stronger and more exible. Recommendation: use levigated Pearl powder only — it is virtually 100% absorbable and very clean. It can also be used topically to feed the skin.
