Deadly Cancer Signs

Are Your Bones In Trouble?

Broken nails are an annoyance, but if you’re noticing that your nails are breaking more often than normal it might be cause for concern. Your nails can turn brittle for a number of reasons, but the two most prominent ones are collagen and calcium deficiencies. Collagen is a protein that supports your skin, connective tissue, and skeleton. You can keep it healthy with foods, like berries, leafy greens, soy, and citrus. Calcium is a mineral that’s integral to bone health—besides dairy, you can also get calcium from dark leafy greens and sardines. If you’re lacking either of these skeletal superheroes, you’re likely to see the negative results in your manicure.
