Calcium has many important functions in the body work. In addition to creating bone mass and preventing osteoporosis, calcium normalizes the work of nerves and muscles, regulates heart rate, prevents blood clotting and promotes sleep. It is also important for the work of immune cells and healthy skin and hair.
There are many factors that draw calcium from the body, and these are primarily too much sitting, coffee, alcohol and carbonated beverages. Pregnant women and menopausal women, older men, as well as people suffering from digestive disorders experience lack of calcium.
An eggshell contains 90 percent calcium, and is the best natural source of this mineral. The body absorbs it easily, because in its chemical composition, the eggshell is almost identical to human bone and teeth.
In higher doses, it does not only treat the symptoms of calcium deficiency and stops the development of osteoporosis, but it also helps in treating high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and stimulates the bone marrow to produce blood cells.
In addition, the eggshell contains iron, copper, manganese, zinc, fluorine, phosphorus, chromium and molybdenum. This is why many experts recommend ground eggshell as a natural and highly effective supplement of calcium. Depending on age, the recommended daily dose is 1.5 to 3 grams of ground eggshell.
