so today we’re going to talk about how to determine nutrient deficiencies based on looking at your nails now I’ve done a webinar on this topic before which is more of a complete video talking about the hair the skin inside the mouth so you can check that out I put a link down below but in this video we’re going to focus just on your nail now your nail gives a lot of clues on what’s going on internally relating to your nutrients and your foods so let’s kind of go through step by step let’s start with vertical ridges okay that could be a slow thyroid hypothyroidism but it can also be a deficiency in vitamin b12 okay or iron but if you’re deficient in iron you’re gonna have probably one or two ridges which are gonna be a little bit bigger if your nails are brittle and they break easily usually a deficiency in folate okay this comes from leafy greens people that have brittle nails usually do not consume enough vegetables also deficiency in biotin which is related to your flora or your good bacteria because your microbes actually can make biotin now if you have a history of taking antibiotics or you have some digestive issue you may be deficient in biotin just from that and also fungus on the nail which is kind of a yellowish discoloration on your nail that’s a fungus that’s due to low biotin because there’s some imbalance inside your gut okay and that biotin is not not working that well also taking silica will strengthen your nails as well if you have this little white spot which this is green but it would be white that’s usually a zinc deficiency if the white spot is right in the center and the nail grows every six months we know you probably had a birthday party six months ago and you ate the entire cake because we’re finding carbohydrates and sugar deplete zinc also stress will deplete zinc as well and so well IBS digestive issues a lot of issues with your digestion will create a zinc deficiency including low stomach acid okay if you get the horizontal white lines through here okay that’s more of a low calcium now over here we have horizontal lines which are thicker but they’re not as white that’s usually a deficiency of vitamin b3 niacin if the nail is slightly brown or grey that could be low b12 and a b12 deficiency can occur if you’re a vegan you’re not taking me 12 because b12 comes from animal products or it could be that you had gastric bypass which affects the digestion and the absorption – b12 or it could be low stomach acids if the nail is clubbed let’s say for example it’s coming up like this that can be a problem with the liver or kidney if you have this pattern where most of it is excessively white you just the top part is pink a pink strip and that could be b12 if the nail is completely white or blue that can be a b1 deficiency so as you can see the common theme is low B vitamins and low minerals because both of those nutrients are involved as coenzymes in proteins and your nail is mostly protein so it’s not just a matter of consuming protein it’s a matter of taking the nutrients in the foods to turn on certain enzymes to make the protein grow correctly if you’re liking this content please subscribe now and I will actually keep you updated on future videos
