Healthy Food for Beautiful Nails
Fruits are loaded with vitamins that can help build strong nails. They are also a good choice for snacks and desserts, offering a wide variety of choices. Some good fruit sources for essential vitamins are dried apricots for vitamin A, kiwi for vitamin C and bananas for B6. Blueberries, blackberries and grapes are also high in antioxidants, which promote good health.
Vegetables are rich in minerals and vitamins for a healthy body and strong, healthy nails. Sweet potatoes, carrots and dark green vegetables--like broccoli and asparagus--are high in vitamin A. Carrots also contain vitamin B6, while spinach and other leafy green vegetables have calcium, iron and antioxidants.
Yeast and barley are just two of the grain products that contain the B-complex vitamin biotin and protein that can lead to healthy nails.
Eggs contain protein, a fuel for the body that can lead to healthy nails. Eggs also contain vitamins A and E, and calcium. Biotin is found in the egg yolk. This B complex vitamin may help restore brittle or dry nails.
Soybeans also contain biotin. In addition to soybeans, lentils are a good choice for vitamin B6 and sulphur amino acids.
