    Any suggestions for stronger nails. My are really thin. I'm a life long nail biter, I feel quitting smoking must be easier. I've pretty much finallly almost stopped. Long car trips seem to be my downfall. Still working on that. When they get past my finger tips several of them continually split. I take daily vitamins inculding biotin.

    Have you tried any of the Sally Hansen products?? They are really good and don't cost an arm and a leg. You can get them at any drug store.
    I don't have problems with my nails but have in the past. Those products are good. I also use gloves a lot in the winter and for jobs around the house with cleaners, etc.

    I just thought of something else. Have you had a physical lately?? Nails are like little windows into health problems sometimes. Quitting biting is a good thing!! Just some thoughts here :)

    I've tried all the affordable products. I just had a physical,no problems. I do take Aleve several times a week, when old arthur bothers me too much. That's it for meds.

    There is a vitamin for Skin, Hair, & Nails. CVS sometimes has it. Last I got was at Walmart. I started taking it agian for thinning hair, but my nails are now much better than they were.

    I bought the same vitamins that Donnajean talked about, I hope they work. They grow, but when they break it hurts.

    My nails have been much better since my doc put me on Caltrate 600+D. Also, I retired and don't do any of the things that used to break them when I was working!!
