May 16, 2016

Want stronger nails the natural way? Change your eating habits. I have been dealing with brittle and weak nails for months until I realized that I did not eat enough nail-friendly foods. When it comes to beauty-boosting foods, fruit and vegetables are not the only sources of vitamins and minerals, though eating them is vital for your bodily functions. Check out what you should be eating more to help your nails grow stronger and healthier.

1 Sweet potatoes

Sweet potatoes are a great source of a powerful antioxidant, beta-carotene, which helps to strengthen collagen and elastin in the nails. It also helps to fight stress that is one of the causes of brittle and weak nails. Eating sweet potatoes at least twice a week is a delicious yet effective way to improve your overall nail health.
