Nail Care

Nail Growth and Nutrition!


DSC_0603

The ultimate tip for nail growth is to massage your finger nails (specifically cuticles) with olive oil or coconut oil (and love) every day before bed. Do it more frequently for even better results. Your nails would not only grow longer quicker, but also stronger and healthier. I always thought that I just wasn’t blessed with pretty nails and whenever they would grow they would just instantly chip away and look weak. Until I discovered simply massaging them with oil, I’ve been doing it nearly every day and this also gets rid of any rough/dead skin around my nails.

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.
