    Kind of desperate at the moment to get some calcium in my diet, since i cut cheese out and dairy in my diet back in Jan i've practically had no calcium in my diet and i can feel my spine and joints hurting more....

    So a lot recommended Egg shells grinded up for calcium.. Now for what ever reason here in the UK i can't get hold of organic eggs like i used to before covid. I've got free range eggs which i am unsure of the quality. Would you guys use possibly lower quality egg shells? I don't really feel to confident about them but is their way to ensure their properly safe? How do you guys prefer them? It just feels weird to me doing this..

    -------------------------------------------------

    Does anyone have any other recomendations for calcium supplements? I didn't want to use the swanson eggshell because it has Vit D in it.. If someone knows an egg shell calcium sup with no Vit D that be great.

    Is this one okay?:

    Is there any thing i should be asking the manufacturer to ensure quality calcium carbonate? Anything to look out for?

    Those free range shells you got would be just fine. Here's how I do eggs:

    1. Wash/rinse the outer shell with cheap bar soap/water then crack and separate the white from the yoke capturing the white in a clean Pyrex glass. I "shoot" the yolk from one of the egg shell halves "down the hatch".

    2. Cook up the eggs whites I've gathered and eat them with some salt/pepper.

    3. I save some of the egg shells, letting them dry out on some tissue on the kitchen counter. Then I crush them up with a mortar/pestle and take some (maybe 1/2 rounded tsp) every day. :2cents:

    livestock doesnt get drinking water,but designated useage water of secondary quality.Im sure that this material can have impurities that would outmatch Calcium Carbonate.Thus,i would go for Ca-Carbonate,which has more scientific characterization,in regards to uptake and recommendable dosages.
