Improve Nail Health and Strength with Vitamins

Let’s be honest, toenail health is not at the top of most people’s lists with regard to physical health. Given how much time they spend covered, it isn’t hard to literally lose sight of them. It becomes especially easy for toenail health to slip out of mind during the holiday season. There are gifts to buy, meals to plan, and cards to send out. The good news is that having healthy, strong nails doesn’t actually require too much effort, even at this crazy time of the year!

Improve Nail Health and Strength with VitaminsThere are a variety of ways to keep your toenails healthy and strong. Keeping them dry and clean, using moisturizers, and avoiding nail polish removers containing harsh acetone or formaldehyde are all smart methods for ensuring toenail health. A little known tactic for strong nails, though, is to eat a balanced diet and supplement with vitamins, especially those containing biotin.

They say that you are what you eat, and if you want healthy nails you should be eating foods rich in vitamin B (especially biotin), C, and D, iron, copper, and zinc. We recommend that you stick to a balanced, nutrient-rich diet for your overall health, but creating meal plans that use foods in their simplest, unprocessed forms will also help you get the nutrients you need for healthy nails. Another method is to take a multivitamin daily. That is not quite as effective as getting your nutrients from food, but you will still benefit from it.

At Dallas Podiatry Works, we are always prepared to help you with any foot and ankle issues you may face, but our hope is that you are able to take enough preventative measures so the problems don’t crop up in the first place. When it comes to having strong nails, a balanced diet will certainly help. If you are experiencing any troublesome toenail problems, though, do not hesitate to call us toll free at 972.566.7474 and set up an appointment at either our Dallas or Plano, TX, offices to see Dr. Joel W. Brook or Dr. David R. Northcutt today.

"I did 3 EPAT treatments and it gave me tremendous relief from my plantar fasciitis. I highly recommend this for anyone who is dealing with PF. Also, the physical therapist Dr. Brook sent me too is fantastic. I am definitely on the mend and so glad I did EPAT."- All H. 5 star
"Dr Northcutt is a fantastic physician. My first surgery with him (although painful), went very well. A couple of issues (with his staff) needed to be corrected, I appreciated his calm and professional demeanor and he corrected those issues promptly. He sets the bar high (the mark of a great physician), and that is the key reason why I'm coming back to him to correct my other foot. I would highly recommend him."- She B. 5 star
"The staff at Dallas Podiatry Works could not have been more courteous, helpful, and professional in doing their job. They made me feel comfortable when I was there, which is certainly appreciated. They answered all the questions that I had and just made each visit the most pleasurable that it could be. I would highly recommend them to anyone needing this type of care."- Joseph B. 5 star
"My experience was a good one from pre-op to post -op. I saw the doctor right before my surgery.He explained the process to me and my husband. The recovery nurse was great. It was neither crowded or chaotic as some day surgery centers. My foot is doing well as I follow instructions. I look forward to my one week progress visit!"- Patricia T.5 star
"I had dealt with a painful foot problem for five months and had seen three different Doctors before seeing an article in D Magazine about Dr. Joel Brook. Dr. Brook took one look at my foot, explained the causes for my pain and set me up on a successful treatment plan. He is very knowledgeable, thorough and exhibits a caring attitude. I highly recommend him."- Ginger W. 5 star
