To attain strong and healthy nails, eat plenty of protein. To make keratin—a tough protein that’s a major component in hard, strong nails—the body needs protein. Some great options for protein in your Blast could be hemp seeds, a plant-based protein powder (check out our new tasty vanilla protein in our store!), nuts, nut butters, seeds, and even some white beans. For brittle nails, include more essential fatty acids in your diet to help keep your nail beds moisturized. Add two tablespoons of flaxseed oil or ground flaxseed to your Blasts. Other options include hemp or chia seeds and walnuts. Iron is another mineral you want to be sure you are not deficient. Drinking lots of water is also important to keep nails and cuticles hydrated. Finally, although there is not a lot of clincial research, an ancient tradition of drinking bone broth is believed to help build strong bones and nails.

What about using a raw egg for the protein content. It has virtually no taste so won't affect whatever you put it with, ie, fruit or vege.

I know some countries have problems with raw eggs, but here in New Zealand our eggs are disease-free and able to be eaten raw.
