You are probably familiar with the saying “Our eyes are the window to our soul”, but were you aware that our nails are essentially doors to our bodies? Lisa Petty, a Canadian nutritionist and aging expert, as well as the author of the 2005 book, Living Beauty (Fitzhenry and Whiteside) wrote, “Nails endure the most when we don’t treat our body well
At the point when supplements go into our bodies, the skin, hair, and nails get them last. So a nail issue can flag an issue in our bodies.”
Your nails are much more than a cosmetic issue. Yellow, brittle, or ridged fingernails and toenails often indicate health problems and/ or nutritional deficiencies, such as thyroid disease or anemia. Made of keratin protein, fingernails and toenails make certain our nail beds, or the exceptionally touchy piece of skin at the end of our fingers and toes, are protected.
