Calcium has numerous important functions in the work of your organism. Besides the fact that it’s creating bone mass and prevents osteoporosis, calcium normalizes the work of your nerves and muscles, regulates your heart beats, enables blood coagulation and stimulates your sleep.
There are numerous factors that can draw calcium from the organism and those are above all: too much sitting, coffee, alcohol and sparkling drinks. The lack of calcium is especially present with pregnant women and women in menopause, older men and people who have problems with their digestion.
The eggshell contains 90% calcium and is the best natural source of that mineral. It’s absorbed by the body easily because the eggshell is almost identical by its chemical composition to human bones and teeth.
In greater dosages not only it treats symptoms for lack of calcium and stops osteoporosis, but it also helps against high cholesterol and increased blood pressure, as well as it stimulates the bone marrow to produce blood cells.
Besides that, eggshell contains iron, copper, manganese, zinc, fluorine, phosphorus, chromium and molybdenum. That’s why many experts recommend grinded eggshell as a natural and very efficient calcium supplement. Depending on the age, the recommended daily dosage is from 1,5 to 3 grams of grinded eggshell.
