Lean Meats (Turkey, Chicken, Fish)
While protein is known for helping build healthy, strong muscles, they also help maintain your fingernails which are also made of protein. Protein is found in large quantities in meat, but not all meats are good to have on a regular basis. Opt for lean meats like turkey, chicken, and salmon for your source of protein.
Fruits and Berries (Blueberries, Strawberries, Bananas)
Fruit is a delicious and nutritious snack to have when you’re feeling the munchies, and they’re great for your fingernails, too. Antioxidants, which are found in their highest amount in blueberries, are great for your fingernails. Grapes and blackberries are also great sources if blueberries aren’t for you. Other fruits that benefit your nails include bananas which are rich in Vitamin A and B6, and strawberries which are packed pull of Vitamin C.
Leafy Green Veggies (Spinach, Kale)
You may not like having these veggies, but these food items are packed with iron, folate, and calcium–all the nutrients needed for nails that are tough as nails.
Vegetables (Carrots, Bell Peppers, Sweet Potatoes)
If you prefer vegetables over fruits, there are plenty of vegetables that you can eat that will pack an identical punch. Carrots and sweet potatoes are loaded with Vitamin A, and bell peppers have all the Vitamin C you’ll need for strong nails.
Nuts and Seeds (Almonds, Sunflower Seeds)
Rather than reaching for a bag of chips next time you need a snack, consider sunflower seeds or almonds. The healthy fats that are found in both are essential for building healthy nails. The magnesium found in almonds can also help repair the looks of ridges in your nails.
