Need nutrition help

margadMarch 3, 2002

Since I have always had very strong fingernails I am wondering why my nails are suddenly breaking. I have been ill with colitis and think this maybe caused by a lack of something in my diet. Does anyone have any ideas?

How much calcium are you taking? It is important that you get at least 1200 to 1800 mg's. At night is best as it competes with absorbtion with other vits. My nails were splitting and breaking until I became faithful to calcium.
I take the soft capsuls as it is easier to swollow.
I also understand that gelatin capsules help nails.
