I have heard that iodine helps nails grow faster(???)

I am not sure though so dont take my word for it but I would like some ideas also on how to speed up the nail growth.

Re: How To Make Toenails Grow Faster?

Your nails are only going to grow as fast as your genetics will allow. toenails grow MUCH slower than finger nails - only growing abut 1/16th of an inch a month. Nothing will make them grow faster. Eating a healthy diet with lots of protein and drinking plenty of water will make them healthier, but it won't make them grow faster. Iodine, gelatin and other things that claim they can make the nails grow faster are only 'false' claims. Genetics determines skin type, hair color, eye color, nail shape and growth patterns among other things.
