The average American eats almost 300 of these per year, yet is totally oblivious to its bone strengthening benefits!
One of life’s simple joys is a freshly cooked breakfast.
Pouring yourself a glass of fresh squeezed orange juice… whisking Mom’s special pancake batter… cracking two eggs onto the griddle.
Little do you know as you smile and toss those broken eggshells into the garbage, you’ve actually just thrown away a key ingredient in the fight for healthy bones.
Eggs have been lauded for years as fabulous sources of protein and helpful vitamins. Yet many people don’t know about their shell’s potential to support bone health...
Remember as a kid when Mom would pour you a big glass of milk?
“You want to be strong? Gotta drink your milk!”
Well, as usual, Mom was right.
Milk is full of calcium, which plays a huge role in maintaining the strength and health of your bones.
When supporting bone health, it’s important to identify the best possible source of calcium to provide the nourishment your body needs.
We’ve found it in ESC® eggshell calcium.
Eggshell calcium is one of nature's purest and most absorbable forms of calcium.
Eggshell calcium comes from chicken eggs, which are comprised of:
The results of this incredible source of calcium speak for themselves.
This 1997 study on the impact of various sources of calcium showed massive improvement not only in calcium bone content, but also in blood plasma calcium levels!
But, if the results are so comprehensive… why are so many people resistant to taking it?
Because of the stigma surrounding calcium carbonate (CaCo3)...
It depends on the source.
The reason many have heard that CaCO3 is unhealthy is because it isn’t just found in eggshells. It can also be mined straight from the earth.
This might not sound risky… but the earth’s crust can be rife with contaminants. If your CaCO3 is taken from the ground and not properly tested, you could be ingesting toxins such as lead and aluminum.
That’s why we offer a purity promise, meticulously screening every single ingredient for microbials, adulterants, heavy metals and so much more.
If you are taking your CaCO3 from our whole food source, ESC(R), you won’t have a problem with purity.
For those who don’t know, most supplement companies will separate desired ingredients from their home compounds by using solvents. Their thinking is simple:
“People want the calcium carbonate, but not all the other stuff that comes with it.”
In the case of CaCo3, it is extracted from an excavated rock and then sold on its own.
But results tell us that ingesting an ingredient within a whole food is often much more effective than an isolated ingredient.
For example, studies have shown that CaCo3 in a whole food like eggshells is 64% more bioavailable than isolated CaCo3!
What makes the difference?
The isolated CaCo3 does not have the benefit of the organic matrix that CaCo3 from eggshell does! Think of this collection of helpful proteins, glycoproteins, and proteoglycans as a group of “chaperones.”
They help transport the calcium to the areas of the body that need it the most in an efficient and effective manner!
Once we understood the benefits of eggshell calcium, we had to share it with the world.
