The condition of your hair and nails is a good indication of your internal organic balance, inevitably reflecting any vitamin or mineral deficiency you may have developed.

Vitamin E is especially important for keeping hair and nails healthy. Vitamin E is also a powerful antioxidant that protects cells and tissues, and helps slow down the aging process.

Good sources of Vitamin E include wheat germ, hazelnuts and almonds, green leafy vegetables (especially lettuce and spinach), whole grains, cod liver oil, etc. If you use a lot of polyunsaturated vegetable oil (corn, sunflower seed, peanut, etc.) you should increase your intake of Vitamin E.

Recommended foods

– almonds, hazelnuts

– wholegrains _ spinach, lettuce

– wheat germ

– cod liver oil

Note that analysis of brittle hair often reveals deficiencies of silica, and less frequently of iron and zinc.
