What are the best foods for good hair, skin & nails?


Nuts & seeds - Nuts are a good source of protein, healthy fats and vitamins E & B. Walnuts and flaxseeds are great sources of omega-3 and 6 fats


Avocado - Avocado is a fantastic source of vitamin E, vitamin B and omega-3 fats and also contains fibre and vitamin C. A survey found those who eat avocados regularly have a better overall diet quality, lower BMI and lower risk of lifestyle diseases than people who avoid them.

Vitamin C is essential for collagen production loaded with antioxidants, vitamins and minerals that are important for healthy hair, skin and nails. Cauliflower, cabbage, peppers, strawberries and tomatoes all contain a great deal of vitamin C.
