Question from Fran Batzer: I have a question about supplements for hair, skin & nails. I have been plant-based for 7+ years Now and my nails are weak and have ridges on them. 1. Enjoy foods with silica, like millet and leafy green veggies. Among its many important duties, silica helps deliver nutrients to the peripherals of the body, i.e. hair, skin, and nails. Foods to incorporate: alfalfa, radish, romaine lettuce, burdock root, cucumbers, bell peppers, tomatoes, steel-cut oats, millet, and leafy greens 2. Avoid foods that deplete your body of minerals. Trans fats, found in some processed and fast foods, interfere with the body’s ability to absorb healthy fatty acids (like those found in avocados, nuts, and pure plant oils). Think of your healthy fats as moisturizer from the inside-out. Our nails need healthy moisturizing to avoid becoming brittle and susceptible to damage. Sugar, too, can wreak beauty havoc by depleting the body of vital nutrients like calcium, magnesium, zinc, and sulfur. 3. Get enough protein. Hair and nails are made with proteins called keratin. Without enough dietary protein, the body won’t have the proper building blocks to create strong and healthy nails. Fortunately, getting enough protein on a vegan diet can be easy and delicious (as evidenced here.) 4. Be friends with biotin (vitamin B7). Biotin is one of the more well-known hair-skin-and-nails superstars and is often found in beauty products. Biotin in shampoo, for example, may not be as absorbable as dietary biotin, however—so eat up! Oddly, biotins benefits for nails were first discovered when biotin supplements were used to prevent horses’ hooves from splitting! Incorporate berries, spinach, mushrooms, legumes, avocado, and cauliflower.
