My nails are soft and break easily, what can I take to help make them stronger?
There are many causes of soft and easily broken nails, including deficiencies in iron, calcium, vitamin A, D and the B vitamins. A simple blood test to determine if you are deficient in any essential vitamins or minerals can help direct treatment. But in general, you should get everything you need from a healthy, balanced diet, unless you have an underlying condition.
