Does my body digest my bitten nails?
I have been biting my nails since I was 4 years old. And now I'm wondering if I have been digesting them all these years or not.
If you are in a habit of biting nails, they do digest. Nails are usually made of the keratin, which is referred to as a very steady protein. They simply digest as other proteins would. Talk to a doctor for more details.
Yes, your nails are basically protein and digest like any other animal protein.
