Are there any green tea fingernail products that really work?

My fingernails are deplorable! They are brittle and have striations in them. Are the products they advertaise on TV really worth buying? Are they taken internaly, or are they put on the nail itself?

1. Green Tea? That surprises me since Green Tea wouldn’t help the nails any more than being a simple antioxidant.
If you are looking for products for nail health, make sure you are taking your RDA of Calcium and try some Biotin, Silica (typically in the form of Horsetail), L-Cysteine, and some B vitamins (all of which would be taken internally).
It may take some time to notice healthier nails because these products help with the health of finger, toe nails and will only influence the new living nails that are being produced. In the mean time, you could try some nail polish, there are even clear nail polishes that help to keep nails strong (just coating them, so it’s temporary).

2. No, there are not. Protect you nails whenever possible from water and chemicals by wearing rubber gloves. Moisturize your hands, paying particular attention to nails and cuticles whenever possible. Use cuticle cream whenever possible. Make sure you are getting adequate protein in your diet. Calcium: 1,000 mg /day, 1,200 mg if you are pregnant or postmenopausal. Use calcium citrate. Biotin: 2,500 mcg /day.Iron: 60 mg /day (after having a blood test to determine if you are deficient). Zinc: 50 mg/day. Silica: Amount as described on package label.
