Iodine for Healthy Nails

By Inspirationail

ShrimpIodine is essential for the production of the hormones which regulate our conversion of fat to energy, stabilizing our weight & controlling cholesterol levels. It is also needed to form bones & keep hair, teeth, skin & nails in good shape.

Important to the proper functioning of our whole system, this mineral is only found in small amounts in our body & a variety of sources makes it easy to consume an adequate supply.

As for your nails, this mineral helps their overall condition & prevents infection. In fact, white (or de-colored) iodine can be used topically to help strengthen weak & brittle nails.

A good way to heal nails damaged from removal of artificial nails, try applying white iodine daily for a week, then once a week after. Make sure you only apply daily for a week or it could exacerbate the problem.
