Abundant in calcium, eggshells structurally resemble human bones and teeth, which makes them easily absorbable by the human body. Calcium is one of the essential minerals for proper body function. It’s an important part of bone mass formation. Plus, it prevents osteoporosis, supports nerve and muscle function, improves sleep quality, and normalizes heartbeat. In addition, it supports immune system function and improves skin and hair quality.
Calcium deficiency, on the other hand, is quite common. In fact, there are a number of factors that drain calcium from your body; the most common include consumption of coffee, alcohol, and carbonated beverages as well as sedentary lifestyle. Groups that are particularly susceptible to calcium deficiency include women in menopause, pregnant women, people suffering from digestive disorders and older men.
Increasing your calcium intake can prevent the development of osteoporosis, reduce high cholesterol and high blood pressure, and stimulate blood cell production by the bone marrow.
Eggshells contain 90% calcium as well as other essential minerals, such as iron, copper, manganese, zinc, fluorine, phosphorus, chromium and molybdenum. According to health experts, consuming 1.5-3g crushed eggshells can be a great calcium supplementation to your body.
