You can grind them in coffee grinder for fine powder. Or you might just eat your braised oxtail bones that you add to your stock pot. They go soft enough to eat. And tastes better than eggshell powder.

I intend to use eggshells to make my own calcium supplement. I read somewhere that eggshells submerged in acetic acid yield calcium acetate. Is this true? And if so, would submerging them in lemon juice eventually yield calcium citrate?

You can add them to a working Bone Broth with a bit of Vinegar, and the calcium you seek will go into the soup that you drink.

actually i just read that feeling cold is not due to anemia, but may have something to do with the thyroid. anemia and thryroid problems often co-occur supposedly. now i have to read more to find out why.

Do not take calcium supplement. 8-10k Vitamin D will bost your calcium absorption at microvili level and reduce calcium filtering at kidney level. You need to supplement K2, 100mcg MQ7 and up to 1mg MQ4. You also need to supplement Mg, 6mg/kg. (more)

Because of better calcium absorption by supplementing vitamin D, could it be possible that it will result in constipation due to lack of magnesium?
