hi

this could be to deficiencies in nutrients in the diet. Also if your nails discolour this could indicate fungal or smoking. If it is fungal you need to treat the whole body and not just the nails (as this is merely a sign of the internal problem in the body). Caprilex from Solgar can work for this. Also consider increasing your omega 3 oils orally.
