Eggshells have nearly as many uses as the eggs themselves. The next time you’re making omelets, don’t toss your shells.
Did you know that an egg’s shell is high on minerals and contains 90% calcium? Our body can easily absorb calcium because its chemical composition is very similar to that of our teeth and bones.
If consumed in larger amounts, calcium will not only get rid of lack of calcium-symptoms, but it will also prevent osteoporosis’ development, stimulate the bone narrow in producing blood cells and help when it comes to treating high cholesterol levels and high blood pressure.
Egg shell also contains iron, zinc, copper, manganese, fluorine, phosphorus, chromium and molybdenum. Therefore, many experts recommend shell eggs as a natural and very effective calcium supplement.It is recommended to enter 1.5 to 3 grams of crushed shells a day.
Here are several ideas on how to use egg shell and what to use them for:
As A Soothing Balm:Are those pesky joint pains getting you down? Egg shells are the answer! They are packed with nutrients like collagen, chondroitin, and hyaluronic acid that are great for joints. Break some egg shells and put them in a jar. Pour some apple cider vinegar into the jar and seal it. Wait till the egg shells dissolve completely. Apply this mixture on the aching joints.
Treat Skin Irritations:Skin irritations can be extremely annoying if not treated properly. Take an egg shell and place it into a small container of apple cider vinegar. Wait till it gets soaked in the apple cider vinegar for a couple of days. Now use this mixture to soothe irritation by dabbing it on the affected area. It is great for minor skin irritations and itchy skin.
Unclog your drains:Keep a few ground eggshells in your kitchen sink strainer. They trap additional solids and when they slowly break down, they will help to naturally clean your pipes on their way out.
Gastritis, ulcer:Crush some egg shells. Pick some using the tip of the knife. This amount of egg shells will be enough for treating these diseases. Mix the crushed egg shells with 2 tablespoons of lemon juice. When shells will soften, add one deciliter of hot milk. Consume this mixture 2 times a day – on an empty stomach in the morning and before bedtime in the evening.
Powerful Cleaner:Ground eggshells make a wonderful (and nontoxic!) abrasive for those tough-to-clean pots and pans. Mix them with a little soapy water for a powerful clean.
Make Your Own Powdered Calcium Supplement:Skip the pills and simply bake your shells at 350 degrees for 8 minutes. Let them cool and grind them to a fine powder. Add your supplement (a teaspoon or less) to your favorite smoothie or juice once a day.
Strengthening the organism and cleansing the blood:Wash 5 egg shells, crush them good and put them in 3 liters of water. Keep this mixture in the refrigerator for 7 days before using it as a drinking water. Drink two to three glasses of this mixture a day. You can add lemon juice if you want to.
Reuse Eggshells To Supply Calcium For Your Plant: Pound an eggshell into smaller pieces.Mix the eggshell with soil or put it at the base of flower pot.Microorganisms will decompose and break it into simpler element and plant is ready to absorb it. Plants need calcium for formation of spindle fibers during mitosis. Lack of calcium causes leaves of plant become cupped and yellow in colour.
Fortify your pet:Dry eggshells in a 250-degree over for 30 minutes. Then put them in a plastic zipper bag, seal it, and crush the shells with a rolling pin until they are a fine powder. Put this into your dog’s food as a great calcium supplement to help its bones and teeth.
