Nails are peeling
Dear Cyberdoc

My nails are peeling - used nail products for strengthening and feeding of nails. Would like to take some supplements, but cannot afford a lot of different ones. Please suggest which supplements to take.

Thank you

JC, I think it would be better to try and find out why you’re nails are peeling. It might be that you have a fungal infection or maybe an iron deficiency or something. If you do decide to take something, make sure it contains zinc, iron, gelatine and biotin. Good luck.
