Supplements worth trying for brittle nails
It seems that the best option is to take supplements that claim to help support your body’s natural oestrogen production. You could take:
- Biotin Supplements- Nature’s Best capsules.
- Nettle – contains the mineral silicone, which may strengthen nails.
- Evening Primrose Oil – contains essential fatty acids, which may prevent cracking.
- Vitamin E – apply oil drops directly to your nails and cuticles or as a capsule (will help with hair, skin and nails).
Be aware that natural supplements may affect any prescription medications that you’re taking. Always buy products with a THR (Traditional Herbal Remedy) mark. If in doubt, check safe levels with your doctor.
