The first thing you must have is ground egg shells. It is best to have organic eggs, not vegetarian fed. Vegetarian feed contains GMO corn. Remove your eggs and then place the egg shells in boiling water and boil for 5 minutes to remove all residue and pathogens. Drain the shells and allow them to air dry. When they are completely dry, break them up into small pieces and place them in a coffee grinder and grind to a fine powder. Most blenders will now grind them fine enough. You want to then sift the powder to make sure you do not have any small pieces with sharp edges.
Suggest dosage is 400mg per day and one egg shell, around 1 teaspoon contains 750 to 800 mg of calcium. My recipe suggests 1/3 teaspoon of egg shell and as you become more use to the calcium levels you can increase more, but never more than 500mg per day of egg shell calcium.
Calcium Smoothie Ingredients
- 1 cup of kale (I used spinach)
- 1 cup of greek style yogurt (I used raw goat yogurt)
- 1/2 cup of almond milk
- 1/3 teaspoon eggshell powder
- 2 bananas, chopped and frozen (Paula used fresh and only 1)
- 1 cup of black berries (any berry will do)
- 1 tablespoon honey (Paula did not use any)
Place the kale or spinach, yogurt and milk in a blender and blend on high speed. Add in the fruit, eggshell powder and honey and blend again until the bananas are completely smooth and blended well. For an added punch, grind up some flax seeds and sprinkle on the smoothie, after you pour this in your glass.
