Calcium is a mineral which is an essential constituent of bones, teeth and shells. The heart, nerves and blood-clotting systems also need calcium to work.
Calcium is important for immunological cells to function properly and for healthy skin and hair.
There are numerous factors that drain calcium from the body, for example: coffee, alcohol and carbonated beverages. Pregnant women and women in menopause, older men and people who are suffering from digestive disorders are especially prone to the lack of calcium.
If I told you that an eggshell contains 90 percent calcium, would you believe me?
Eggshell is a natural source of minerals, which the body can easily absorb. The chemical composition of the eggshell is almost identical to human bone and teeth. Apparently at higher doses, eggshell does not only treat the symptoms of the deficiency of calcium and stops the development of osteoporosis, but it also helps against high cholesterol and high blood pressure. It also stimulates bone marrow to produce blood cells.
Moreover, eggshells contain iron, copper, manganese, zinc, fluorine, phosphorus, chromium and molybdenum. Thus, most experts recommend eggshells as a very effective addition of calcium to your body. The recommended dose is generally 1.5 to 3 grams of crushed shells.
Here is an example of how you can use eggshell to strengthen your body and to cleanse your blood:
Wash 4 or 5 eggshells, boil them, crush them and put them in 3 litres of water.
Store this mixture in the refrigerator for up to 7 days and use it as drinking water.
Drink two to three cups of water daily with a little lemon juice.
