As odd as it may sound, eating eggshells for nutrition is something of an ancient art. Of course, it's also fairly unpleasant (and even dangerous!) which is why Swanson have created this easy (and safe) way to get nothing but goodness from this fantastically healthy source of Calcium. Bolstered with Vitamin D3, there is no better way to keep your bones in shape.
To some of us, eggshells are a commonly acknowledged source of Calcium. To the rest, it probably sounds a little strange and unpalatable. Of course, eating eggshells is not a concept without precedent. If you go back as far as the 19th Century you will find some fairly odd sounding cookbooks that recommended the use of eggshells to create clarified stock.
It wasn't until quite a bit later that we started to understand just how good for you eggshells could really be. Primarily used by adventurous survivalists, pet owners and natural healers, eggshells have incredible scientific documentation as a rich source of Calcium.
The main problem has always been that extracting that Calcium has proven extremely troublesome. Bacterial contamination or even food poisoning from Salmonella are very real issues when it comes to eating eggshells whole so the need to pasteurise and process the shells is paramount.
What Swanson Ultra 100% Natural Eggshell Calcium with Vitamin D-3 offers us is not just a safe, easily swallowable capsule rich in Calcium and Vitamin D3 but also an opportunity to keep our bones and teeth strong and healthy all the time.
When you consider that each of us loses Calcium every day through our hair, nails, skin, sweat and urine, there is an undeniable need to replace it constantly. In fact, we all need around 1,000 mg of Calcium every single day just to guarantee that we have enough.
Despite the mineral's importance in the body, the average woman consumes only slightly more than half of her daily requirement. Dairy products, cruciferous vegetables and green beans can all help to keep our levels up but what if you aren't getting enough?
Osteoporosis is the softening of the bones due to a lack of hydroxyapatite (the compound we use Calcium to make). It results in bendy and pliable bones, which in turn can result in pain and unnecessary fractures.
Swanson Ultra 100% Natural Eggshell Calcium with Vitamin D-3 offers you a completely natural line of defence against unpleasant conditions like osteoporosis. With higher bioavailability than food grade calcium carbonate, this really is the most natural and effective way to supplement your Calcium reserve.
