Magnesium and nail growth

I started supplementing with Magnesium about six months ago. I've been anti-inflamm/paleo-ish for about two years.

The purpose was to assist with sleep, and the method I settled on was epsom salts (Mag Sulphate) - make a saturated solution by half-filling a soap dispenser with the salts, then top up with water, shake, and wet the torso twice a day.

It seems to help with sleep - I give it 6/10. And with mood - 8/10 (seriously, try it).

But I've also noticed my gnarly toenails have really straightened out during this time. The little nails were arched and a bit crooked, the big nails were ingrowing. No problem clipping now, although the worst ingrowing nail still needs a bit of ingenuity. Footwear hasn't changed. And I've never had problems with my fingernails.

In the same period I started with the Jaminets' advice on low level supplementation of lithium + iodine + zinc. I can't think of any other change that might be relevant.

Google search for Mag + toenails only shows benefits for fungus eradication.

Assuming transdermal Mag works, is this the key to restoring toenail growth?
