I also have that problem. My doctor tested me and I have a calcium deficiency. You might try taking OTC calcium citrate. It is more easily absorbed than other calcium. I take it daily and have noticed a big improvement. It does take some time to see the improvement. If you would rather, you could take Tums which is a cheap source of calcium.

Feed store. Pure MSM by the pound. I take 1 teaspoon a day in liquid. Nails have never been stronger. Good for lots of things. Check internet.

Eat pine nuts and sunflower seeds. They will give you stronger nails within a week. Just a mixed handful every day and you'll be amazed at the results.

Have you had your thyroid checked? Since I got mine regulated, I have actual fingernails for the first time in 20 years or so!

My aunt used to use Knoxx jello and had great strong nails. I think she would make it into a jello, or drink it. Sorry, not real sure but it worked.
