Thread Name: fingernail strengthening
Subject: RE: fingernail strengthening
these sound like legumes to me:
"Eat lots of pulses like chickpeas, lentils,
kidney beans, butter beans etc."
see;
http://www.gelatin-gmia.com/html/qanda.html
wherfe it says the raw materials are:
"include cattle bone, cattle hides and fresh, frozen pigskins"
I always thouhgt that geleatin was from horsee hooves
or a similar substance. but the above page says:
Horse hooves are made of keratin, the same material as your hair and fingernails. Gelatin cannot be made from keratin.
so maybe if you want more finger nail material in
your body you should eat keratin?
