Which Blasts can promote fingernail health?

I just removed my acrylic nails after many years.  I want to continue with my natural nails but they are very weak.  Are there any good boosts that in can add to my morning smoothly that will help or any other supplements that you can recommend.

Dietitian's Answer

Here are a couple good places to start! http://www.nutriliving.com/blog/5-tips-becoming-beautylicious http://www.nutriliving.com/popular-topics/beauty 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. And finally, drinking lots of water is also important to keep nails and cuticles hydrated.
