Did you know that you can make your own homemade organic calcium- magnesium supplement and effectively replace store bought calcium and magnesium supplements?
This is called the Lemon Egg recipe and here’s how it works!
Place a fresh, clean, Whole uncracked organic egg (aka from your backyard chickens- don’t use pasteurized eggs folks!) and place it in a clean mason jar. You can use several eggs – however many you want.
Cover the eggs with FRESHLY Squeezed Lemon juice (not bottled). The reason you can’t use bottled juice is because it has been pasteurized- again, removing natural elements that are necessary for this to work!
Cover the jar with a coffee filter and rubber band and put it in the fridge. Every now and then, gently agitate the jar (you know, when you’re reaching for the butter, or the milk, etc.
You’ll know when calcium is leeching from the shells because you’ll be able to see bubbles forming around the eggs.
Leave the jar for 2 days (48 hours). The bubbling will have ceased at this point. Remove the eggs from the jar, carefully, without breaking them.
Place a tight lid on the jar and shake well.
You now have a highly concentrated Calcium-magnesium Lemon Egg Juice. To use add 2 oz to smoothies, shake over steamed veggies, or just down a shot of it daily.
This well known recipe is naturally bioavailable and easier for your body to digest. I switched to this method after learning that store bought supplements increase the chances of kidney stones and are difficult for the body to process. Also, taking the wrong types of calcium can actually increase arthritis and degenerative disease.
A single whole egg (medium size) yields an average of 750-800 mgs of elemental calcium plus additional microelements such as magnesium, boron, copper, iron, manganese, molybdenum, sulphur, zinc and more.

This is a really great way to get the calcium plus other micronutrients in egg shell! In addition, you can safely eat the uncooked egg as the lemon’s acidity killed bacteria.
Additionally, if you have egg shells that weren’t cooked, you can use those instead of the whole, uncooked egg. Great way to make use of the shells from making quiches or breakfasts!
