Long Healthy Nails – Update!

DSC_0603

I posted my number one tip a while ago that would transform any nails into super fast growing healthiness! From a nutritional perceptive, nails love biotin, omega-3, protein, and zinc! I found that increasing foods rich with these nutrients in my diet really helped increase the strength of my nails, because usually they would grow to a certain length and then gradually start to chip away. This is a list of foods rich in these nutrients in addition to what worked for me…

Biotin

What worked for me – salmon, red meat, eggs, milk, organic butter, cucumbers, almonds, bananas

Other foods rich in biotin – seafood, meat, whole wheat bread, yoghurt, cheese, onions, cabbage, cauliflower, avocado, nuts, berries

Omega-3 

What worked for me – salmon, eggs, milk, organic butter, oatmeal, spinach, watercress, hemp seeds, olive oil, cod liver oil

Other foods rich in omega-3 – sardines, fresh tuna, soy milk, yoghurt, flaxseed, peanut butter, pumpkin seeds, walnuts, kale

Zinc 

What worked for me – spinach, almonds

Other foods rich in zinc – beans, mushrooms, cocoa, cashews, pumpkin seeds, shell fish, red meat,pomegranates, avocado, berries

Protein 

Nails are actually made of protein, specifically, keratin, therefore a consistent supply of protein will ensure that your nails will grow healthily and stay strong since it helps to create new body cells and repair tissue. Protein is rich in lean meats, chicken, sea food, nuts, dairy, soy beans, and whole grains.

Have fun making your nails look beautiful! What tips have worked for you?
