2. Help Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by weak and brittle bones, and can sometimes develop due to a lack of calcium. Recent studies suggest a combination of eggshell powder, vitamin D3, and magnesium can strengthen bones even better than purified calcium carbonate. Eggshell powder is widely available in pharmacies and health food stores, but can also be made at home. Simply boil a dozen eggs for 10 minutes, shell them, and bake the shells at 200 degrees Fahrenheit for about 15 minutes. Grind the shells into powder using a blender, a coffee grinder, or a moral and pestle. Store in an airtight container and take a dose whenever you think you need a little more calcium in your diet.
