The Secret Health Benefits Of Eggshells

You may remember a scene in Rocky where he cracks several raw eggs into a glass and drinks them in a single gulp. This healthy trick is just as easy – but a whole lot less gross.

As it turns out, when you scramble eggs for breakfast, you’re actually throwing away one of the most important parts of the egg – the shell. You may think of the shell as a pesky nuisance. No matter how careful you are, it seems like little bits always make their way into the yoke. But, as this video points out, the shell is 90% calcium. We all know we need calcium to keep our bones strong, but, unless you’re downing massive amounts of milk on a daily basis, there’s a good chance you aren’t getting the necessary amount of calcium your body needs. That’s why eggshell powder is so cool! Unbelievably, it only takes half a teaspoon for you to get 1,000 to 1,500 mg of calcium. That’s 90% of your daily need! 

You may be scratching your head, wondering how in the world you’re supposed to turn that hard eggshell into an edible powder. Watch this video, and you can learn a simple way to turn that “waste” into a valuable part of your daily diet.
