Strengthening nails and hair. TOP-10 products

Health and Beauty

Modern women are a little luckier, as they have access to various salon treatments, expensive care products, and a whole kaleidoscope of strengthening vitamins and supplements that temporarily improve appearance. However, at this point, it's important to slow down a bit and look at the basics - "we are what we eat." This unchanging rule applies to the beauty of our nails and hair. If you want long, thick hair and cat-like nails, it's time to get acquainted with the products without which achieving this is practically impossible.

So, the top - 10 products for strengthening nails and hair.

1. Eggs

A common product found in every kitchen, but its benefits for hair, nails, and skin are invaluable. In addition to being almost 100% protein, which is essential for healthy hair and skin, eggs contain a large amount of B vitamins, potassium, calcium, magnesium, iodine, iron, essential amino acids, and a very useful ingredient - lecithin. It takes care of the nervous system and has virtually no analogs. Moreover, eggs are almost completely absorbed by the body, making them one of the most dietary products.

2. Cottage cheese

One of the best products in terms of valuable protein, minerals, and vitamins. It is especially rich in calcium, iron, and phosphorus, which are essential for strengthening hair and nails. Just 200g of cottage cheese a day provides the body with the daily requirement of calcium and, with regular consumption, can improve even the most brittle hair and nails. Importantly, milk protein does not contain purines like meat does.

3. Red and fatty fish

Omega-3 fatty acids are a real treasure for our body. They are not only essential for the normal functioning of the brain, heart, and blood vessels, but also nourish all our tissues and organs. There is nothing better for maintaining healthy mental tone and strong memory. Omega-3s are crucial for nourishing our hair, skin, and nails, making them strong and shiny. They are found in large quantities in salmon, tuna, mackerel, and trout. Flaxseed oil is a plant-based alternative to Omega-3 acids.

4. Walnuts and Almonds

When leading a healthy lifestyle, nuts are an essential part of the diet. Nuts contain a whole list of beneficial substances and complete plant protein. Walnuts and almonds are rich in vitamin E, a powerful natural antioxidant that provides protection for our hair, nails, and skin. Walnuts also contain a significant amount of iodine, making them the most beneficial nut for health.

5. Avocado

Few fruits can compare to the universal benefits of avocado. Rich in biotin, potassium (twice as much as in bananas), sodium, vitamin E, calcium, and vitamins A, C, D, B - it's not only a find for strengthening nails and hair but also an excellent rejuvenating agent. Moreover, avocado is one of the few fruits that are very beneficial for men in maintaining high testosterone levels in the body.  

6. Liver

Just 100 grams of chicken liver provides the body with the daily requirement of iron, which is essential for the elasticity and strength of hair and nails. Additionally, the liver contains a large amount of vitamin A and has a valuable protein content comparable to chicken breast. The low caloric content of chicken liver makes it a great addition to a dietary regimen.

7. Carrots

Carrots are well-known for their vitamin A content, but they also contain a significant amount of vitamin C. These vitamins work together as a powerful antioxidant for our body, strengthening hair and protecting it from the sun's ultraviolet rays. For this reason, carrots or their juice can help prevent hair breakage and drying.

8. Red meat

Contrary to some stereotypes, red meat is not entirely harmful. For example, it is only true if it is cooked incorrectly - fried in oil, for instance. However, if red meat is grilled or baked, it becomes a highly nutritious and beneficial product: it contains a large amount of Omega-3 fatty acids that nourish the entire body, and vitamins B and A, which are essential for good hair growth and strength.

9. Spinach

Spinach has the lowest glycemic index and the highest degree of benefit among green plants. It contains almost the entire spectrum of beneficial minerals and antioxidants, which have a strong strengthening effect on the entire body, including excellent strengthening of nails and hair.  

10.  Dietary Supplements

When it comes to hair and nail health, Ginkgo Biloba is particularly noteworthy as it not only has a strong immunostimulating effect but is also a record holder in terms of zinc and selenium content, which are excellent regulators of metabolic processes and rejuvenation, strengthening all tissues.
