Leukonychia (Greek, leuko -white, onyx- nail) is a medical term for white spots appearing on the fingernails usually due to dehydration,fungal infectiondeficiency of potassium zinc, nail trauma,eczema or the psoriasis

Sometimes it is harmless, while in other cases it may be a sign of an underlying medical problem such as nutritional deficiency. Occasionally, white spots on nails may indicate an allergic reaction to a product used on the nail, such as nail paints, hardener, or polish remover.

If you want strong & healthy nails, be sure to include foods rich in vitamins A, B, C, D, E and iron, calcium, potassium, zinc, sulphur, as well as the essential fatty acids. Multivitamin supplements can also be taken to treat a vitamin deficiency. Make a conscious effort to consume fresh fruits and green vegetables (spinach, broccoli, etc.), nuts, beans, fish and eggs, among other nail-friendly foods. 

Fresh Vegetables & Fruits for Healthy Nails!
Ensure that you consume enough proteins as it is the main building material for nails. Foods that are high in protein include beef, pork, poultry and fish, chickpeas, tofu, milk, peanuts, baked beans and lentils. Dehydration affects our nails badly, therefore, remind yourself to drink about 3-4 liters of water daily and keep yourself well hydrated.
