For healthy nails, be sure to get plenty of quality protein.

Eat grains, legumes, oatmeal, nuts and seeds.

Eggs also are a good source of protein.

Avoid refined sugars and simple carbohydrates.

Eat many fresh fruits and raw vegetables.

Eat foods that are rich in sulfur and silicon, such as broccoli, fish, onions, and sea vegetables.

Also include in the diet plenty of foods that are high in biotin, such as brewer's yeast, soy flour, and whole grains.

Drink plenty of water.

Cuts and cracks in the nails may indicate a need for more liquids.

gotu kola

Drink fresh carrot juice daily, as it is high in calcium and phosphorus and is very good for strengthening the nails.

Consume citrus, salt and vinegar in moderation.

Excessive intake of these foods can result in a protein/calcium imbalance that may adversely affect the health of the nails.
