Zinc for Healthy Nails

By Inspirationail

Crab LegsZinc is found in every part of the body and it performs a variety of functions including helping wounds heal. The mineral is essential to maintaining healthy body systems, (like the immune system) & it’s especially important for healthy skin & nails.

Vegetarian diets are more likely to be lacking in this mineral because the most common sources are animal based.

Interestingly enough, pumpkin seeds have the highest non-meat concentration.

Zinc helps with the absorption of both minerals & enzymes which helps to prevent weakening of nails and encourages their growth.
