Foods that make the nails stronger
If you’re sick and tired of always having withered nails that break easily, you may need to check your diet. Many nutrients you get from food intake have a strong role in the current state of your nails. Keep reading for 10 foods/drink you should consume more of to go from weak and brittle nails to sexy and shimmery nails!
- Dark leafy greens
It’s old news that green vegetables nourish the entire body, but dark leafy green such as spinach, kale, and broccoli provide the body with enough iron and calcium to make your nails unbreakable!
Vitamin E – aka the beauty vitamin – protects internal cells from damage, so a handful of almonds daily is vital when maintaining healthy nails as they’re full of Vitamin E.
Not all fats are bad, believe it or not. You can find the essential fatty acids in avocado, olive oil, and oily fish like salmon. Our Strong ‘N Long Nourishing Nail Oil contains olive oil to nutrify the cuticles from the outside.
Nails are made up of a protein called Keratin. When the body lacks protein the nails can become discolored and weak so eggs are a good source of healthy protein that can fix this. The hair is also made up of keratin so you’ll be nourishing your hair at the same time!
It’s very important to stay hydrated at all times. Water is known to “boost beauty from within”. We recommend drinking minimum 8 glasses of water a day to sustain your nails, hair, and skin.
