Nail Growth and Vitamins

Nails Tip

If you want faster growing nails, be sure that your diet is rich in Vitamins A, B-Complex, C, D, E and iron, calcium, zinc, sulfur, and the essential fatty acids.

  • For Vitamin A, look for fruits that are yellow and orange or veggies that are dark green.
  • For Vitamin C, chop up some green and red peppers and offer them to your family as a snack.
  • For Vitamin D, look to your dairy products.
  • For Vitamin E, a supplement is your best option.
  • For zinc, options include kidney beans, rice, chicken or cheese
