It is recommended that adults consume up to 1,000 mg of calcium per day for optimal health. Instead of buying expensive supplements, you can make your own eggshell calcium powder in the comfort of your own kitchen!

The end result is a digestible powder that packs 400 mg of calcium per half teaspoon.
