Your mouth goes through a lot of trials and tribulations throughout the day. It is possible that you might expose them to processed sugar, which aids in the growth of oral pathogens. These nasty pathogens weaken dental enamel and put your teeth in danger, but you might be throwing away the solution every day. You probably heard that eggshells are good for gardens, but did you know that eggshells are great for your teeth, too, especially if they are weak. The following will explain how to use eggshells and why they are so good for you.
What is So Special About Eggshells?
Eggshells are mostly made of calcium. They are about 93 percent of calcium. This means that you can extract this mineral and consume it to help remineralize your teeth. Eggshells also have traces of magnesium and other minerals that will help remineralize and strengthen your teeth, not to mention your bone structure.
It is important to note that you will need a considerable amount of vitamin D so that your body can properly absorb the calcium. Thankfully, you can get that for free by simply going outside in Chandler, Arizona for about 20 minutes. Be sure to wear sunblock, though you can also just take a supplement.
How to Extract Calcium From Eggshells
Remember that you should only use eggshells from organic eggs to avoid consuming any harmful chemicals. Make sure that the eggs also come from free-range chickens.
Follow the steps below to extract the calcium:
- The first thing you will need to do is bring about two cups of water to a boil.
- Then grab about four freshly cracked eggshells, and throw them in the boiling water for about 5 minutes. This is to kill any bacteria that might be on the eggshells.
- Let the eggshells air dry, or you can put them in the oven at the lowest setting for about 10 minutes or until dry.
- Break the eggshells up a bit, and throw them into your coffee grinder and grind them.
- Transfer the powder into an airtight and clean container. Take about 1/2 a teaspoon of the eggshell powder every day in a smoothie or with juice.
Keep in mind that the powder should last about 2 weeks. Talk to your dentist in Chandler, AZ about adding this natural supplement to your diet so that he or she can help monitor the results.
