Strengthening brittle nails from the inside out is easy when you enjoy an omelet for breakfast. Our nails are 98% protein, and a deficiency in this nutrient can sap nails of their strength. Eggs to the rescue! Eating one or two a day supplies needed protein and the amino acid cysteine, which binds the strains of keratin (the main protein in nails) together to add strength. Prefer a topical fix? Mix 1 egg yolk with 1 Tbs. of jojoba oil. Massage into nail beds; rinse after 10 minutes. Doing this three times weekly for 14 days will fortify nails in two weeks.
Wouldn’t it be great if something you enjoy daily could boost your health and melt fat? Good news: Sipping your morning coffee will do just that! The brew has gentle diuretic properties to flush water weight. Plus, it’s loaded with antioxidants and polyphenols, the most abundant of which is chlorogenic acid (CGA). CGA curbs appetite boosts metabolism by 50% and cuts blood-sugar fluctuations in half. So you stay slim and lower your risk of diabetes. Even better? Opt for medium or light roasted brews, which have more CGA.
