Hi Harold. One tip my esthetician friend gave me years ago is to eat jello. I did that and it really did help. Takes a while to notice as the nail has to grow out. I know people might think jello is gross. I still have the odd treat of sugar free jello, even though it does not fall into a "healthy" diet in my opinion. But as you know, I am not rigid but do stay on track pretty much all the time.

Hi John & Susan. Thanks for those suggestions. Jello, there's a favourite. Think I'll start that right away. Gets me into trouble because i tend to not share it. I think I'll add the Vit D & also Zinc. I take daily slow release Magnesium. I'll see how it goes. In the meantime perhaps some of my wife or my daughter's clear nail varnish...

Run with it Harold. Use colorful nailpolish and get in touch with your feminine side. LOL. I actually add half the water to my sugar free jello. We call them jello jigglers. After it sets I slice it in the container into squares and pop it in my mouth as a treat. Yum. Think I might make them today as a matter of fact. Haven't had a treat in a while.

Atul I get my fill of vitamin D from the sun in the summer. I spend alot of time outside and the vitamin D is always coming through even in the winter through the clouds. No struggles for me with vitamins either as I get all my vitamins in my Moringa. I guess if someone doesn't spend alot of time outside they might have vitamin D deficiency.

I'm not all that I'm cracked up to be. I'm sure that some CSIs picked up my DNA at some crime scenes I might have passed when the wind was blowing.
