We all want durable nails, so the question is simple:
Do supplements really help you get stronger nails?
Ridges, dents and discolouration or an unusual nail shape can be a telltale sign that something is wrong with your nail health. Did you know nails are made of protein?
- Biotin, or vitamin B7, is crucial to maintain protein production and can help strengthen weak or brittle nails.
- L-Lysine supplements can be taken to help build healthy proteins.
- Try adding protein rich foods like red meat, chicken breast, nuts and sunflower seeds to your diet.
- Keep hydrated, If you are dehydrated, your nails can become brittle and ridged.
Supplements begin to work on your growing nails, not your currently visible nails, so it could take a few months to see results. It all depends on how quickly your nails grow.
