Nails are composed of phosphate that we can't use in our bones. However when we start slowly degenerating our body needs to get enough to keep the organs and muscles working. So, the first place it decides to rob is the nails. Once this source has been depleted we begin to leach from the bones.
We've all seen an elderly relative thats shrinking or has lost their teeth. So while it may not seem hugely important that our nail health is declining, it is indicative of some serious health issues that we may face in the future.
Phosphate is stored in sugar, so any sugar naturally has phosphate. Now this is where I start to alienate those amongst you that are Doctor's or Dentist's who recommend the avoidance of sugar because it will "rot your teeth."
Now we've discussed sugar before, by sugar I mean carbohydrate. The avoidance of carbs frequently leads to nail problems. So, to improve the strength of our nails we need to eat more carbohydrates. However it is essential that we are able to metabolize it in order to have the desired effect. Luckily thats where I can help.
