Foods that strengthen Nails

You have probably already know what kinds of food are good for the skin. How about your nails?  Nails are made of carotene proteins.  There are certain foods can make the nails stronger and healthier.  Here are a few of them,

1. Beef

Beef is rich in protein.  More importantly, it has a high content of iron which prevent the thinning of hair as well as spoon nails and other nail problems.   You do not have to have beef everyday, moderate amount is good enough.

2. Blueberry

Blueberries are packed with antioxidants which protect body cells against free radicals.  Other kinds of fruit and dark green vegetables may be high in antioxidants, but blueberries contain the highest of all.

3. Oyster

Oysters not only are rich in nutrients, it is also high in zinc which helps the body to form protein and promote growth of nails.

If you do not like the taste of oysters, beef and baked beans are good alternative sources of zinc too. 

The above are suitable for adults and children alike.
