Sublingual vitamin B12 would probably help too.

I've had nail issues for at least ten years or more--very noticeable longitudinal ridges,uneven growth and thickness, peeling. My diet has been gluten-free for over a year now and I take a lot of gluten-free vitamins and for the last two months I have been on Levothyroxin. For years I was told by doctors that my nail issues were probably genetic (although I know of no one in my family with these kind of issues). After I was diagnosed my doctor told me it was most like malnutrition. Currently my nails are so short yet that doesn't keep them from splitting. Has anyone had this type of issue and what if anything did you do to help?
Yes, I had the same nail symptoms (soft, vertical ridges, frequent splitting and tearing) for years before I was diagnosed with hypochloridia (low stomach acid production). Because my stomach didn't produce enough acid to effectively digest proteins, I didn't get enough protein for my nails. I was prescribed betaine hydrochloride supplements to improve my digestion. Slowly (VERY slowly) my nails have improved.
Most docs use the 'genetic' excuse, when they really don't know what causes your problems. Also most docs are influenced by Big Pharma's multibillion dollar antiacid/acid blocker drug campaign. So your doc may never consider that you don't adequately digest protein, because you have low stomach acid.
Gluten, dairy, soy, egg, cane sugar, vanilla and nutmeg free. Enterolab diagnosed gluten/casein intolerant 7/04; soy intolerant 8/07. ELISA test diagnosed egg/cane sugar IgG allergies 8/06; vanilla/nutmeg 8/06. 2006-10 diagnosed by DNA Microbial stool tests and successfully treated: Klebsiella, Enterobacter Cloaecae, Cryptosporidia, Candida, C-diff, Achromobacter, H. Pylori and Dientamoeba Fragilis. 6/10 Heidelberg capsule test diagnosed hypochloridia. Vitamin D deficiency, hypothyroiditis, hypochloridia and low white blood cells caused vulnerability to infections. I now take Betaine HCl, probiotics, Vitamin D and T3 thyroid supplement to maintain immunity.

As I recall, the horizontal ridges were an indication of protein deficiency. The vertical ridges were associated with vitamin deficiencies.
My nails are normal now for the first time at 47.
Maybe I'm absorbing vitamins and protein better?
