What Do Your Nails Say About Your Health?

  • Your fingernails can provide clues to your overall health and wellbeing. So let’s look at some of the signs, shall we?
    Pale nails

    Very pale nails can often be a sign of iron deficiency. The pinks of your nails should be soft baby pink in colour. Foods rich in iron include fish, eggs and meat. If you’re vegetarian or vegan make sure you eat the right amounts of lentils, nuts and green leafy vegetables such as spinach.
    White Spots

    White marks on your nails may be due to a bump or small trauma, but can also indicate a zinc deficiency. Foods rich in iron include oysters, seafood, seeds and meat.

  • Peeling nails

    Weak, thin nails could indicate a deficiency in hydrochloric acid in your stomach, which can take its toll on your digestion. Bloating is a common symptom of this.

    Introduce fermented vegetables and a probiotic can help to strengthen your nails and alleviate any bloating.
    Nail Biting

    Nail biting is linked with anxiety issues and stress. If you can’t stop biting your nails it may be worth consulting in a health care professional to deal with any underlying issues.
