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!”
