Usually, a lot of us get through the days of our lives without even really thinking that much about our nails, or if so, only think about it when it gets longer already. Our toe nails also suffer that taken for granted phase, since we don’t really get to see them all day or get people to look at them, because they are just usually hidden and are just usually brushed off from many people’s thoughts. If only we tend to think more about the little things, and realize how life can be very different if we don’t have the body parts that we have now, from the smallest to the most obvious, it would be easier to take a look at our nails and appreciate them every single day of our lives. The nails on our fingers and our toes are there not only because they make the whole body look complete, but because they also have their own simple uses that might only be seen when they no longer are there, which is why they deserve more acknowledgement than they are given currently.
The nails on our bodies are made up of these keratin proteins that make them grow rapidly and sometimes swiftly because of some changes on the hormones, and that can be very much seen, the fast growing of the nails, through those pregnant women. The nail is basically a good indicator for one to know whether a person eats healthy or not, since they are usually in their healthiest condition when the owner eats a ton of proteins and some greens and fruits that are rich in vitamins and minerals. You will usually have better nails and very hard ones if you try to put in your daily meals those foods that have a lot of vitamin A and vitamin B content, say for instance those green leafy vegetables or those yellow fruits. You may also have some of those foods that are rich in vitamin C and vitamin E, since they have some substances that may also help maintain the health and the good state of your nails for a longer time, Some other nutrients that you need to incorporate in your meals would be zinc, essential fatty acids, and sulfur, so that you can have long, hard, and healthy nails to marvel at. If you like fish, you can also have that since they have this omega three which is also good for the nails.
We don’t just take good care of them from the inside, although that is the most important part, but we also have to take care of them from the outside, like doing casual trims here and there, every now and then, and so on.
