For example, fast-growing, hard nails are one sign of a great diet, but there is no reliable evidence that taking protein, vitamins or gelatin will strengthen nails. Forget the rumor that calcium makes nails harder--nails are made of protein, not calcium. Learn why iron-rich prunes, dark green leafies, and biotin supplement (2 ½ milligram) might help nails grow faster.

However a bad diet will result in hair loss, dry and dull lifeless hair, as well as brittle nails. Elizabeth Somer discusses her six dietary guidelines to scam-proof your looks.
