Chicken egg shells
Chicken egg shells are washed, boiled, dried and then ground to a powder in a clean hygienic environment.
About 95 percent of an egg shell is calcium carbonate, which has a chemical formula of CaCO3. Calcium carbonate, a crystal structure, provides a strong bond, while allowing space for other substances to exist, or for air and moisture to pass through the shell.
Egg shells also contain calcium phosphate, magnesium carbonate, sodium, potassium, zinc, manganese, iron, copper and proteins. Such substances help make the egg shell stronger.
See Dr. Pottenger’s research on cats. In summery eggshell calcium is highly beneficial for the forming of strong bones and teeth. It can even prevent deforming of bones and teeth. It is also beneficial in older animals with for example hip and spine problems.
How to use: simply sprinkle the powder over the animal’s food sparingly (as you would salt over your own food). Only add if calcium is not already added in the food. Use a salt shaker.
