Soft nails: A number of concubines can result in linear striations poor nutritional state, low vitamin levels. Two products which can strengthen the nails are deramanail and genedur. The addition of oral digestive enzymes is useful for strengthening weak nails according dr jonathan wright of the tahoma clinic.
