Hi Anon

Thanks for your post. 

Do you have other health problems or are you on any kind medication? This can affect nail growth. 

Calcium is very important for nail health, as is biotin.  I suggest you take both in supplemental form to see if this will help.  

If you want biotin in the form of food, try soybeans (veggie burgers!), eggs and walnuts. 

A little sun (Vitamin D) can help with nail growth too. 

I hope this helps! 


Lean protein, plenty of fruits and vegetables also help.
