Do You Have White Spots (Half Moon)on Your Nails? Here’s What They Mean

There are numerous ways in which our body sends signals to us about our overall health. Therefore, hair fall, healing of wounds, skin color, as well as skin acne may indicate our nutrient levels, intolerance of certain food, microbiome state, or some severe diseases, like cancer or diabetes.

What Does Lunula Represent?

The lunula, the white half moon, is found on the top of our fingernails, under the nail. Its function is to protect the delicate blood vessels under the nails. Even though lunula is not visible on everyone’s nails, we all have it. Moreover, the lunula has an important role in the nails growth, so if it is damaged, it can affect the growth of the nails, too.

Lunula can significantly help you to learn more about your overall health:

A lunula on the thumb indicates the spleen and lungs function. It is the most noticeable on the thumb nail, but it should not take over 25 % of the thumb nail. It may be rather smaller in smokers or people with arterial hypertension.
An index-finger lunula can fade away completely or become smaller as a result of the pancreas, intestine, or certain chronic diseases.
A middle finger lunula represents the function of the cardiovascular system as well as the brain. If it is absent on the nail, it may indicate high blood pressure or vascular issues.
