So why is this breakfast "nail-healthy"???


Well . . .


"Eggs" - are a rich source of "protein" that helps make the "keratin" of nails thicker and stronger. And egg white are loaded with "biotin" (vitamin B7). Eggs are also rich in vitamin D and B12 that can make nail shinier


"Spinach" - is packed with calcium, iron, zinc and antioxidants that are great for strengthening nails.


"Mushrooms" - restore the balance of vitamins and minerals and revolve the causes of weak nails and hair. But they have to be "medicinal mushrooms" like shiitake, maitake and reishi. These mushrooms are high in B vitamins, fiber and antioxidants and are a great source of potassium and B-complex - riboflavin, niacin and pantothenic acid.


So try this yummy breakfast and help maintain your healthy nails.
