Nail strength relies on calcium, but if you talons always split and snap,
add foods to your diet that are rich in silica. If you don’t have adequate
levels of silica, your body can’t send the calcium to where it’s needed.
Eat more silica-rich foods. “Horsetail tea and nettle tea – if you can
stomach it – are great sources of silica or try some unpolished seeds, nuts
and grains, especially sunflower and pumpkin seeds.
