When looking for a weak nails solution, how do you know who to listen to or what to trust?

Weak nails may be caused by a number of different medical issues including: below average hormone production (Hypothyroidism), a below average red blood cell count (Anemia), a lack of sufficient blood iron (Iron Deficiency), Sjogren’s Syndrome, several skin conditions or Brittle Nail Syndrome.

There are some practical things you can do in your everyday life to protect against weak nails. One is to limit your nails’ exposure to water. Putting on rubber gloves when washing dishes is a simple, practical way to protect against water. You should also wear gloves when using household cleaning products, which contain chemicals that can weaken nails. If you use nail polish, give your nails a couple days a week without polish so that they can breathe. When removing a layer of nail polish, use a nail friendly, non-acetone formulated nail polish remover to ease the harsh effect nail polish remover can have on nails.

To further protect your nails, use Nuvail™ (poly-ureaurethane, 16%) as your weak nails solution. Nuvail is a patented polymer that penetrates intercellular spaces and nail surface ridges to bind with keratin, the protein that forms fingernails and toenails. Applied once a day, Nuvail creates a strong, water resistant shield against fungi that can cause weak nails.
