Nutrition for your Nails

Home » Beauty » Nutrition for your Nails


Nails and hair are both made of keratin, so it isn’t surprising that a lot of the same nutrients help to strengthen both.  Vitamin A and D and calcium help prevent nail brittleness, while Vitamin B 12 helps retard dryness.  Deficiency of another B vitamin, folic acid, has been linked to hangnail formation, as have a lack of vitamin C and protein.  Hangnails can inflame the tissue surrounding the nail, as can a lack of essential fatty acids.  Among the minerals , magnesium helps keep the nails from becoming soft and brittle and a lack of iron can result in thin. pale nails.  Organic sulfur is essential for healthy skin, hair and nails, which you can find in MSM.
