Nails Abnormalities — Causes and Best Foods to Prevent It

Types of Nail Abnormalities:

As we discussed before, age is a big factor in changing your nails. You can slow it down but you can’t prevent it. But if nail changing is due to some medical condition, that is alarming.

  • Change in nail color.
  • Clubbing, curling, or any other change in thickness.
  • Reduced thickness.
  • Bleeding around nails
  • Pitted nails
  • Swelling or pain around nails

Best Foods for Nails:

A healthy diet plays an important role in your overall health. But some foods are good for specific parts of the body. Such as hydrolyzed collagen is beneficial for the health of hair, nails, and skin.

  • Leafy greens
  • Eggs
  • Salmon
  • Fresh Veggies
  • Fruits and Berries
  • Fortified Milk
  • Nuts and Seeds
  • Beans and Legumes
  • Whole grains
  • Collagen rich foods


Nail abnormalities may be due to age, medical condition, or deficiency of specific nutrients. Healthy foods can reduce the risk of nail abnormalities that are due to food. For proper diagnosis, consult the doctor.
