Avatar n tn That is one of the better sites I have seen for fingernails, thanks for posting. That site suggested that vertical ridges could indicate disorders as simple as iron deficiency, poor absorption of vitamins and nutrients, overall poor health. Also, could be a result of vitamin deficiency, one of which is the B vitamins. I can see maybe iron deficiency, since iron causes me so much trouble.

Eating a healthier diet and supplementing with vitamins can help clear up the ridges; for especially strong, health nails you can eat gelatin, which will also benefit your hair.
