In brief: Soft nails

Nails break because they are soft.
It can be associated with low thyroid or poor nutritional state. If blood tests are ok it can be treated on the outside with dermanial or genedur. Internal vitamins with high biotin levels and silica can be helpful. Oral digestive enzymes taken 3-4 with a meal work to strengthen nails due to poor nutrition.
