Hi !

How much do you know about your nails?

Fingernails are under daily stress all year round; we use them as tools, bite them, type with them, tap them, play instruments, play sports, and much much more.  With all the constant abuse, they may crack, peel, break, soften, get hangnails, dry skin, ridges and discolour.  

Heathy nails should be uniform in colour,  smooth and clear from any bumps, divots or discolourment.  They will typically grow at a rate of 0.1 mm per day (toenails 0.05mm/day); although, this will depend on your age, health and nutrition.

Structure of your nail:

The nail Matrix is the area where your fingernails (and toenails) start to grow and create new skin cells, which pushes out the old dead skin cells to make your nails; injuries to the nail bed or disorders that affect the matrix can affect your nail growth. 
The Cuticle protects the root Matrix of the nail.  If this area becomes traumatized in any way, it can lead to infection or malformation of the nail bed or nail plate.  Bacteria can enter through saliva when the nail and cuticles are chewed on, so it’s very important to keep them out of your mouth, keep them clean and healthy!
The Hyponychium (aka:"quick") is the epithelium located under the nail plate between the free edge and the fingertip, which protects the nail bed.  Keratin is the fibrous structural protein of our nails (also: hair, horn, hoofs, wool, feathers and of the epithelial cells in the outermost layers of the skin).  Keratin is an important structural and protective function, particularly in the epithelium.
The Lunulae is the half moon located at the base of the nail.  It may appear  small or missing which is usually not a cause for concern; they’re often hidden underneath the cuticle or skin at the base of your finger.

Nails are a window to your health. 
  1. Wash hands and nails with mild soap and gentle nail brush.
  2. Treat your nails with care. 
  3. File your nails regularly.
  4. Keep the nails shorter for function and health.
  5. Always keep a nail file on hand. 
  6. Clean and disinfect your nail tools after each use.
  7. Leave your cuticles alone.  
  8. Protect your nails with a base coat.
  9. Use a nourishing hand and nail formula daily.
  10. Weekly manicures can also improve nail health.

If your body is low in protein, calcium, zinc, or vitamin A, a deficiency can sometimes be revealed by ridges in your fingernails. Bioton is a B-Complex supplement that can help improve overall nail health, and it can also be found in some foods: 

  • Eggs (yolks)
  • Almonds (raw, salted, or roasted)
  • Cauliflower (Raw cauliflower contains 17 micrograms of biotin per serving 
  • Cheeses
  • Mushrooms
  • Sweet potato
  • Spinach
Other foods that can improve your nails include fruits, lean meats, salmon, leafy greens, beans,  and whole grains.
