Has anyone really tried a teaspoon a day of organic powered egg shells for making their osteoporosis, bones stronger better? All you do is, when anyone in your home eats an eggs in your home, put the shells in the oven for 15 minutes, then put the shells in a coffee grinder and collect the powder in small glass jar. I just used 6 eggs I collected put them in he oven to sterilize and dry them.
I did. It got too difficult to keep preparing.
my stomach couldn't handle it
I find the concept interesting but wondering what type of calcium it would be considered
Its calcium carbonate
Christine Griffith that is what is in my almond milk.... Calcium carbonate
Thank you I have wondered about that so at the moment will stick with the diet route
I'm wondering if instead of the actual shell helping to strengthen bones, if it could be the inner skin-like lining of the egg shell as tonight on the tv they said it was made of collagen? Hmmm.
Here's the problem with that.... While many still believe (and doctors) that bones need calcium, it has been proven that it is actually magnesium and not calcium that is needed. Osteoporosis is actually Scurvy of the bones and Vitamin C is what is needed along with magnesium, Vitamin D3, K2.

How much Vitamin C and magnesium should we be taking? I just stopped taking my calcium supplements as I had heard they weren’t good. My vitamin d has K1 and K2 in it.
Vitamin C should be a minimum of 500 mg for maintenance and up to 3,000 mg per day according to some physician who have their head in this. Keep in mind though that any sugars or foods easily converted to sugar (glucose) in the blood will hinder the white cells that use Vitamin C for fuel by 75% for up to 6 hours after ingesting the sugars. This includes honey. (To be honest) if it were me, I would be taking a solid 2,000 to 3,000 mg in the morning first thing. Then wait six hours before consuming any sugars. This assures the entire dose is working as long as it can.
If you need more on why no sugar, let me know. This is key with any Vitamin C treatment.
Douglas Crocker thank you!
Douglas Crocker Take 2000 mg to 3000 mg of Vit C in the morning? Is that what you are saying. The problem with that is the Vit C is water soluable. It is not stored in the body. It is better to spread it out. When I was really ill, I set the timer and took it continuously, so that it would be peaked in my blood at all times.
And what's important about taking Vitamin C is that it needs to be organic and all sugars must be avoided or the Granulocytes that use the Vit. C. are hindered by 75% for up to six hours after ingesting sugar, including honey and foods easily converted to glucose.
I tried it, but I got severe headaches from it.
Sorry, what caused your headaches? VitaminC? If so, did you use organic? And a formula without gluten or nightshades? I have found some with one or the other of those added. Nightshades can cause inflammation, as can gluten for some. If it was synthetic, it would be understandable.
Quanti grammi di acido ascorbico (vitamina C) bisogna prendere?
If you're doing the egg shells don't go overboard on it & be sure you are taking K2, boron, & magnesium. Otherwise the calcium will go to your arteries & joints & tissues.
i take conchae 5% (Inner parts of broken shells of the oyster) and apatit d6 (rock of a norwegian volcan) Weleda brand (german homeopathy)
I take eggshell calcium
https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11281164 Egg-shell calcium (Ca) is one of the effective Ca sources for bone metabolism. In the present study, we investigated whether egg-shell Ca had similar effects compared with calcium carbonate (CaCO3) when vitamin D3 (1alpha(OH)D3) treatment was given to an osteoporotic rat model. In both 1alpha(OH)D3-supplemented and -unsupplemented rats, the bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumber spine in the vitamin-supplemented group increased significantly compared with the unsupplemented group. In a Ca balance study, there were also significant differences in intestinal Ca absorption, urinary Ca and fecal Ca between the vitamin-supplemented and -unsupplemented groups. These results show that egg-shell Ca could have similar effects to CaCO3 on bone metabolism. In contrast with CaCO3, vitamin D3 supplementation did not significantly increase serum Ca levels in the egg-shell Ca group; however, the mechanism of Ca absorption is still unclear. Our results suggest that egg-shell Ca may be an effective nutrient in Ca metabolism for people treated with vitamin D3. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23607686 A single eggshell contains 2.07 ± 0.18 g of Ca; therefore half an eggshell could provide the amount of Ca needed by adult human beings per day. The best way to use chicken eggshell as Ca dietary supplement is powdered to add to bread, pizza or spaghetti as there were small changes in texture and no changes in flavor. https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/15018022 In this paper the most significant biological and clinical aspects of a biopreparation made of chicken eggshells are reviewed. Eggshell powder is a natural source of calcium and other elements (e. G. strontium and fluorine) which may have a positive effect on bone metabolism. Experimental and clinical studies performed to date have shown a number of positive properties of eggshell powder, such as antirachitic effects in rats and humans. A positive effect was observed on bone density in animal models of postmenopausal osteoporosis in ovariectomized female rats. In vitro eggshell powder stimulates chondrocyte differentiation and cartilage growth. Clinical studies in postmenopausal women and women with senile osteoporosis showed that eggshell powder reduces pain and osteoresorption and increases mobility and bone density or arrests its loss. The bioavailability of calcium from this source, as tested in piglets, was similar or better than that of food grade purified calcium carbonate. Clinical and experimental studies showed that eggshell powder has positive effects on bone and cartilage and that it is suitable in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.
Be careful with self medicating, you could do serious damage to your organs ,
Use organic. If you don't trust the shells, then you don't trust the egg inside either. I think putting them in the oven works if the shells have been boiled first. So making boiled eggs is ideal. But I tend to lightly fry mine in coconut oil. When I boil the egg shells, the whites get cob webby.. So I haven't hard the heart to attempt to eat them yet. But eggs shells are natural.. Not a medication... So you can relax if you are concerned that they have the same dangers as drugs.
Do not use eggshells from eggs that have been boiled or cooked in any firm of aluminium or non stick cookware ... Aluminium and flouride are a big reason for major damage in the body
Dump your Aluminiun pots ASAP!
Absolutely true plus the widespread use of aluminium cookware both today but certainly by mothers in 1940s50s 60s is very much part of todays osteoporosis .... Aluminium in all its forms strips the bones and damsges the digestive system and the whole body and ultimately the brain
The water here has flouride in it. Getting water from plastic bottles is costly, plus has other health hazzards. Boron / Borax helps rid the body of flouride, and helps cure all sorts of things.
Actually if the egg shells are heated from any source past 108 degrees, the enzymes in the membrane and shell are neutralized. Keeping the raw or dried from raw are best and the only ones that provide the needed nutrients. But again, this is being based on the notion that the bones need calcium, and they need primarily magnesium (some of which is magnesium). One whole medium sized eggshell makes about one teaspoon of powder, which yields about 750 – 800 mgs of elemental calcium plus other microelements, i.e. Magnesium, boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, sulphur, silicon, zinc, etc. There are 27 elements in total. But it is mostly magnesium the bones need.
Is consuming the enzymes good or bad?
Enzymes are very good.
magnesium 3 gr (0.10 ounces) per day or more? I take 3 gr magnesium chloride sachets
Dr Abraham suggests raising the RDA of magnesium to 1000 mg/day and lowering the RDA for calcium to 500 mg/day. His proposed daily intake for calcium would be more in line with the World health Organization's “practical allowance” of 400 – 500 mg daily for adults. This is from Dr. Michael Lam on Reversing Osteoporosis: https://www.drlam.com/blog/reversing-osteoporosis/364/
By this, I would say more would be needed.
calcium supplements are really needed, not only natural sources? (almonds etc) I was told calcium is needed if you take osteoporosis meds (bifosfonates etc)
I've been doing this for a few months now. Use organic eggs (I use Duchy Organic, which are Soil Association accredited) boil the empty shells for 20 mins to remove residues, then dry them off in the oven at a low heat before grinding them in a coffee grinder. I'll be honest- the taste isn't great and you'll need lots of water as it's a bit like eating a teaspoon of sand, but I think it's worth it- there are lots of studies confirming the benefit. I also take a teaspoon of sesame seeds first thing every morning (soaked overnight) which also have well known osteo benefits. And I avoid Fosamax like the plague!
