Broth bones and eggshells for calcium - anyone try before?

I heard that eggshells are eaten as calcium by women in a certain part of Africa, and that eggshells can be boiled and grinded into powder to mix with drinks and soups.

Anyone try eggshells as a calcium supplement?

And there is always the bones from broth. Are bones supposed to be reused until they fall apart? When do you throw the bones away? I thought about using bones as calcium when I chewed through a chicken bone (that was used for broth) and saw how soft it became.

And, if there is too much calcium unabsorbed, would we develop kidney stones..

Yes, eggshells have been discussed before on PaleoHacks, please do a search about it. As for calcium going where it's not supposed to be, that's why you're supposed to get enough foods that have K2 Mk4 (or supplement with it). Mk4 in particular is the one that distributes calcium at the right places in our body and not our arteries or kidneys. K1 or K2 Mk7 don't have this property.
