Onychoschizia on the hands; vitamin deficiency


Onychoschizia on the hands is much more than a nuisance. Namely fingernails speak not only about neatness and our living habits, but also about our general health. In this article we will give you some excellent natural recipes for strengthening the nails, which will completely eliminate the problems that we daily have to face with onychoschizia.

Causes of Onychoschizia 

Although the shape and strength of the nails are genetically determined, their quality is influenced by external factors, particular diseases or disorders in the diet. Shooting nails are caused by poor nutrition, weather conditions, and insufficient intake of fluids in the body, dishwashing and strong laundry detergents, low-quality nail polish and polish removers. Sometimes it is enough to just take a look at the individual person and to look at their hair or nails to conclude what their health is. Shooting nails, dryness and longitudinal grooves on the nails usually alert us to a lack of proteins and vitamins A, C and B as well as iron deficiency and zinc. Those nails are brittle and dry and their flexibility depends on the water content in them. Soft nails unlike them are very easy to cut and can bind up to 30 percent of water. Mentioned problems can be caused by physical injuries including the most common nail biting, but if you using acetone and other solvents for removing nail really often the same can happen. Now when we found out why the fingernails get damaged, we have to say something more about the treatment.

For onychoschizia the market today offers a wide range of products. Be careful and do not forget that most of them are filled with chemicals (even those products on which the declarations states to contain a certain percentage of natural extracts). Under label vitamins for hair and nails today you can find really everything - from quality products to those which are not. A healthy diet is very important to strengthen the immunity. Diet based on daily intake of large quantities of vegetables and fruits and even up to 50 percent of the total amount of food ingested during the day is the best preventive. For good healthy nails eat mandatory almonds, hazelnuts, walnuts and other high-quality nuts, we recommend cashews, which are rich in iron and protein. Consume larger quantities of liquid, carrot juice, mint tea should not be avoided, eat oatmeal every morning to help prevent further onychoschizia on the hands.

Onychoschizia vitamin deficiency

Considering that nails are indicators of our health problems (as we have mentioned in the introduction), some changes indicate a lack of minerals and vitamins, and here is what they are:
  • White streak on the nail points to a lack of vitamin C, protein and folic acid.
  • If they break and we notice vertical and horizontal grooves on the nails it warns us of a lack of vitamin A and B.
  • Dry and with hooked ends brittle nails tell us about lack of vitamin B12.
  • Corrugated nails on the hands as well as the emergence of white spots symptoms suggest the lack of iron and zinc.
  • Onychoschizia in children and adults is a sign of a lack of hydrochloric acid. Drink a glass of warm water with the juice of half a lemon daily.

To cope with these problems, daily eat foods rich in exactly those vitamins and minerals. If the therapy and nail care, we suggested does not bring the expected results, be sure to do a detailed analysis of your blood test, to make sure that you do not have symptoms of anaemia which can also cause the above mentioned condition.
