Here's Why You Should Never Throw Away Egg Shells

Do you normally toss your egg shells? Reading this will definitely make you think twice before you throw them away again. It's incredible that something as simple as egg shells can have a tremendous impact on our health.

Most people don't realize it, but egg shells are in fact 90% pure calcium, almost chemically identical to the calcium that makes up our teeth and bones. This chemical similarity explains why egg shells' calcium is easily absorbed into our bodies and helps with many aspects of our health.

Egg shells can also be a great source of other minerals like iron, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, fluorine, copper, molybdenum and chromium.

How Exactly Can Egg Shells Improve Your Health?

The calcium in egg shells helps to strengthen bones, helps the bone marrow produce more and healthier blood cells, helps to prevent osteoporosis, and has also been proven to lower cholesterol and blood pressure.

To promote overall good health, take 5 egg shells and crush them into a fine powder. Then, add that powder to 3 liters of water, and let it sit in the fridge for a week to dissolve the shells. You may also add a little bit of lemon juice for flavor, and consume 2-3 glasses of the mixture every day.

Mix crushed egg shells with lemon juice and allow them to soften. By adding egg shells softened with lemon juice to a liter of rakia, you can make a powerful drink that boosts thyroid function. Similarly, you can add softened egg shells to hot milk to help treat ulcers, and maintain good digestive health.

In almost any situation where you need more calcium, eggshells are nature's perfect match to the calcium in our bodies.
