Eggshell question
« on: July 08, 2014, 10:24:03 am »
Today I started using eggshell powder as a calcium supplement but something makes no sense, everywhere I read says that half of egg will yield 400-500mg of calcium and egal 1/2 teaspoon, well I used 12 eggshell and it yield me around 80gram and of course I tried to weight half of a teaspoon and I come up with 1.5g. Logically it makes no sense for half a teaspoon to egal 400mg since half a teaspoon of refined sugar is 2g, so I doubt calcium weight 5 times less then white sugar. What should I do? 400mg of calcium is about 1/7 of a teaspoon for me, why the hell do I get that measurement? Any clue? I can't find proper information anywhere.

did you notice any improvements after eating eggshells?
The pharmaceutical industry, the prison industry and the military industrial complex need more clients, while society needs more: fascists, totalitarian single digit iq nobodies(to enforce and carry out satan’s plans), communists, marxists, bolsheviks, leninists, SJWs, BLMs, socialists, mercenaries, welfare/benefit queens/kings, cartel members, starving people, broken homes, broken people, broke/bankrupt people from all points of views, hit(wo)men, murderers, uniformed psychopaths, drug addicts.

Eggshell isn't pure calcium. The rest of the weight is other elements, mainly carbon.
