Like hair, nails must be nourished from the inside to be beautiful and strong. Here is the plate that provides them with the nutrients they need to grow quickly and well.


  1.  I eat meat or fish at least once a day
  2.  I sprinkle wheat germ on my dishes
  3.  I trade the refined for the whole
  4.  I find the dairy that suits me
  5.  I eat almonds for breakfast
  6.  I rehabilitate the liver
  7.  I break an egg in my pasta
  8.  I combine vegetables with meat or fish
  9.  I adopt the dried fruit reflex in case of a little peckish
  10.  I hydrate myself smart

Having pretty nails is not just about having a successful manicure. What you eat is also important.

1. I eat meat or fish at least once a day

Animal proteins provide essential amino acids including methionine and cysteine   (called "sulfur") which allow the synthesis of keratin, the main component of hair and nails.

These foods are also rich in B vitamins and minerals, which are essential for their vitality.

2. I sprinkle wheat germ on my dishes

These glitters are full of B vitamins that stimulate the production of keratin, zinc that promotes the growth and renewal of hair and nail cells, and iron that stimulates their growth by transporting oxygen to their roots.

3. I trade the refined for the whole

By consuming whole grains, you benefit from better intakes of B vitamins and various minerals, including iron, zinc and selenium essential for nails.

4. I find the dairy that suits me

The calcium is essential for strong nails. However, dairy products are the richest: cow's milk, sheep's milk, goat's milk or vegetable juice enriched with calcium. The right dose: 2 to 3 per day, including at least 1 yoghurt beneficial to the intestinal flora.

5. I eat almonds for breakfast

Or nuts, hazelnuts ... Oilseeds provide calcium, iron, silicon, selenium and zinc, beneficial to the strength of the nails, but also unsaturated fatty acids which, by nourishing their cells, improve their appearance.

6. I rehabilitate the liver

It is a micro nutritional mine: essential amino acids, vitamins (group B ...), selenium and iron galore! Once a week or fortnight.

7. I break an egg in my pasta

It is a good way to consume more B vitamins, sulfur amino acids, zinc, iron, everything that makes nails strong.

8. I combine vegetables with meat or fish

Thanks to their alkalizing power, they counterbalance the acidifying effect of animal products, which promotes the escape of minerals, including those essential for nail health. Similarly, we accompany the cheese with salad.

9. I adopt the dried fruit reflex in case of a little peckish

Apricots, grapes, dates, prunes ... have strong alkalizing power and effectively remineralize the body.

10. I hydrate myself smart

Drinking lots of water is also essential to the vitality of the nails. We opt for Salvetat rich in calcium, low in sodium, Rozana, rich in silicon. We leak sodas, rich in demineralizing phosphoric acid.


What are the white spots on the nails due to?


These would not be due to a calcium deficiency, but to repeated micro-trauma on the surface of the nail (friction, use of products, bitten or filed nails ...). On the other hand, brittle or striated nails reveal a diet poor in micro-nutrients or favouring the escape of vitamins and minerals because it is too acidifying (abuse of sweet products and animal proteins, low consumption of fruits and vegetables ...).
