Egg Shell Powder Is The World’s Most Underrated Calcium Source

I googled top 10 sources of calcium and NONE listed egg shell powder as a source. 😕 I personally eat soft boiled eggs everyday and always consume the fallen, cracked, bits and pieces of egg shell together with the yolk and white.

Here are 9 reasons why the egg shell is such an underrated source of calcium.

  1. Egg Shell’s Calcium Content Is Huge
  2. dairy products such as eggs, milk, butter, cheese, yogurt

    Which simply means that just 1 egg’s shell meets much more than your 1 day’s RDI! 😮

  3. Bioavailability Of Egg Shell Calcium
  4. white and brown egg

    Egg shells are potentially better than food grade purified calcium carbonate. However, calcium from the shells of organic eggs (88%) are much more bioavailable compared to non-organic ones (48%).

  1. The 5:2 Diet Plan

    As far as healthy diet plans go, the 5:2 diet plan is a relatively easy to follow diet program. Eat regularly for 5 days while going on a 500kcal (women) or 600kcal (men) fast for 2 non consecutive days every week. A typical fast day consists of two meals, one in the morning and one in the afternoon/night. Of course, you should tweak the diet in a way that works for you. Split your calories into smaller meals if you can’t get through a working day without eating but make sure you are not miscalculating 1000kcal for 500kcal. Start planning here.

    The benefit of the 5:2 diet comes from the act of fasting. It has been scientifically proven that fasting increases your resistance to stress, increases insulin sensitivity, decreases susceptibility to diseases, and increases in lifespan. For the best results, intermittent fast everyday.
