Calcium Is All In The Shell

We are a nation of waste, we use part of the whole, and discard the rest. Eggs are a perfect example of this, we crack them use the inside and discard the shell. Well did you know that the shell and its membrane has amazing minerals that not only will provide an enormous amount of calcium but also can relieve pain. Fresh eggshells from free-ranging, local hens (I wouldn’t use conventional store-bought eggs for this) crushed and steeped in hot, nearly boiling, water can be all that you may need to do to enhance your bones and relieve your pain.  Egg shells/egg membranes are rich in calcium and minerals.  Steeping them in water leeches the minerals and calcium out of the shells and into the water.  Pretty simple.  This water aids in the building of strong bones.  It aids in the relief of bone pain, joint pain, and inflammation.  It’s even been found beneficial in preventing and easing arthritis! 

It turns out, there are two popular ways to utilize the nutrients from the eggshell.  The first involves steeping the eggshells in hot water, like we’ve done (or another option would be to add them to your homemade chicken stock while it simmers – same idea).  The second involves washing out the eggshell, allowing it to dry for a day on the counter, and then grinding it in a coffee grinder or spice grinder until it’s a fine powder.  This powder can then be added to smoothies or oatmeal or what-have-you.   This would be another easy way to make your own free calcium and mineral supplement!  In Norway for folks grind the eggshells up with their coffee beans and steep them both together for a little extra morning calcium boost in their coffee.  Now there’s an idea!  Plus, egg shells apparently take some of the acid out of the coffee – making it more palatable.

So instead of spending all this money on tablets, utilize the egg shells and get natures own.

If you can't live your truth, then its just not worth living.
