We already learned about the foods that help your hair look healthy, but this post is all about our finger and toenails. If you find your nails constantly breaking, brittle and week these are the food you might want to consume more of…
You probably don’t need me to tell you why milk is so good for your nails, but just in case you don’t it is because of all the vitamin A that is known to be effective in growing nails.
It seems there is nothing spinach doesn’t do! It is full of Zinc and a Zinc deficiency is known to cause discolouration on nails. So to keep them looking colourful and healthy you should eat as much of this as you can.
Here is a news flash: Not all fats are bad for you! And one of those “good” fats is Omega-3 fatty acid and one of the best sources of this is indeed salmon, but to be honest most fresh fish still has high amounts of it.
You might know Biotin as its other name of vitamin H, but you can call it what you like as the fact still remains that cucumber is a great source of it and it has been proven to help grow cells located in the core of the nail meaning longer, healthier looking nails.
It is thought that Apricots have multiple beauty benefits but one of the main ones if healthier looking hair and nails thanks to its high amounts of vitamin A. While an apple a day might keep the doctor away an apricot will make the beautician jealous!
You might not have ever heard of them, but keratinocytes are essential to help your nails grow long and strong and a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids is of course eggs and they, in turn, help your body to make those keratinocytes in the first place.
These tasty berries help your body metabolise fats and proteins which in turn means you have healthier looking skin, hair and nails! While the natural substance of Biotin is found in many other foods raspberries do have higher amounts than most of them.
If you don’t like fish but still want to get plenty of Omega-3 Fatty Acids walnuts are the way to go and have quite high amounts, but I will say it isn’t as high as fresh salmon.
If you need to add more proteins in your diet and don’t like meat this is the best way to go. meats are the easiest way to pack protein into your diet, but soybeans are just as good.
Put simply there is nothing better for your nails more than a nice bit of turkey meat mostly thanks to the high amount of protein it supplies your body. The fresher the better, but than goes without saying and should be for all the foods on this list.
While there are other foods that could be considered good for your nails these are some of the main ones. But if you know of any more do let me know of them in the comments below.
