I Have noticed that my nails are splitting and breaking all the time (even though I keep them pretty short) Do any of you have any suggestions?
decrease sugars. eat greens, green smoothies, apples, asparagus, cucumbers, grapes, walnuts, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds, hemp, sunflower seeds, use coconut oil – internally and topically. drink lots of water. also, look at external forces (too much handwashing, living/working in a dry or dusty arid environment) as well.
me too. they got better for the first month i was raw now they split again.
Coconut oil. Try rubbing it into you nails and cuticles.
from real food tulsa blog:
“I could pimp MSM all day long as a supplement. My finger nails have gotten so strong and are growing faster than I ever remember. Back in the day, when I worked in the salon, women asked me daily, “What can I do to make my nails stronger and not peel?” I never had a great answer back then, but now I’d tell them to pop about 6 -10 MSM capsules/day and watch the magic happen!”
