Our whole body works like a health indicator and shows signs when you’ve not been taking care of yourself. The keratin at the end of your fingers (yes, your fingernails!) can do the same! A close look at your fingernails will tell you if your body lacks nutrition or you’re feeling under the weather.

According to WebMD, if you have bluish nails, that’s a sign of lack of oxygen in the body. This could indicate some heart or lung complication, like emphysema. If your nails are brittle and break easily, you might not have enough collagen in your diet. So take a look at your nails now, what do you see? Have a look the infographic by Vitabiotics to find out what your fingernails are trying to tell you about your health.
