iVillage.com: How to Treat Beauty Disasters

Do You Have Weak or Brittle Fingernails?

Sulfur is crucial in the development of strong nails and a deficiency can be what’s keeping you from that manicure.

Rx: MSM

Methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) is an odorless, tasteless form of sulfur found naturally in many fruits, veggies and meats, is good for your nails. It’s such an important building block of healthy nail tissue that taking 2,000 to 2,500 milligrams daily can help women grow strong, break-resistant nails within two months. MSM is quickly destroyed when food is heated or processed, so pumping up your levels with a supplement is a smart bet if you’re struggling with not-so-sturdy nails right now. Look for MSM in health food stores and nutrition outlets.

Bonus: According to studies at Oregon Health Sciences, MSM is also a powerful anti-inflammatory that can cut joint pain, muscle pain and headache flare-ups by 82 percent in as few as six weeks.
