So, you’re trying to grow your beard thicker, longer, stronger, better, faster? You’ve come to the right place.

You should know by now that I’m always trying to find ways to help your beard and I don’t hold anything back--especially in the bedroom. Today I have some tips everyone should follow.

There’s plenty of topical treatments to use, like minoxidil or essential oils, in hopes of growing a better beard, but sometimes you still need more.

Nutrition. You’ve heard of it. And I’ve even shared some of the best ingredients for beard growth, but today I am taking it even further by talking about actual nutrients in food you need to achieve the beard of your dreams.

You need to understand that the things you consume (or don’t consume) can seriously impact how your beard grows. Yes, I’m saying the whole government balanced diet thing is on to something.

So here’s some things you should kindly ask your wife to add to the menu (and help her cook you deadbeat).


Protein for Beard Growth

Now being a manly man, I have no problem getting protein in. Bacon for breakfast, bacon cheeseburger for lunch, and bacon wrapped steak for dinner.

I’m kidding. But I do make sure to get my protein every day. And my full, luscious beard is thankful for it. Basically, the reason protein helps is because your hair is made of keratin which is made up of protein … so you need protein for your beard to grow.

I’d recommend including some protein packed foods like chicken breast, beef skirt steak, lentils, seeds, and eggs.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids

Fatty Acids for Beard Growth

It turns out that the fish you caught last weekend isn’t only delicious, it’ll help your beard grow.

Omega-3’s are healthy fats which can provide moisture and nourishment to your hair follicles. These helpful fats also can reduce inflammation which lead to a stronger environment for your beard to grow in.

Fish is definitely one of the best ways to get more omega-3 fatty acids but you could also include things like flax seeds and chia seeds.


Phytochemicals for Beard Growth

I know, you’re wondering what this is and why I would recommend you consume chemicals.

Well to put it simply, phytochemicals are all the things that make fruits and vegetables colorful and healthy. They aren’t your typical chemicals!

Eating a variety of colored fruits and vegetables will give you more nutrients. Some of the best foods to include are sweet potatoes, avocados, berries, citrus fruits, and spinach.

Maybe you know that eating fruits and vegetables are important. But maybe you would rather chow down on a medium-rare steak than you would a piece of broccoli.

Luckily, there are some easy ways through supplements, to get this nutrition from fruits and vegetables. You know I care about quality so the best option I found is Balance of Nature, but there are others like Juice Plus+ and Texas Superfood.


Zinc for Beard Growth

Zinc is often recommended to boost your immune system but it also is known for being anti-inflammatory. This makes zinc pretty great for your beard.

Zinc is going to help keep your hair follicles strong so that your hair stays attached to your face where it can grow. This means it can help prevent that dreaded patchy beard.

Good news! You can add more zinc to your diet with foods we have already recommended.

Zinc can be found in meat, eggs, vegetables, and seeds.


Water for Beard Growth

Sorry to break it to you but you do need to drink water alongside your other favorite beverages.

Water hydrates all of your organs, including your skin. Since your skin grows from the hair follicles in your skin, you need to stay hydrated so the follicles can keep functioning and growing your beard.

It is recommended that you drink half your body weight in ounces every day. And a lot of men are not doing that.

To get more water you should … drink more water. But also eat more fruits and vegetables because those have water in them too.


Iron for Beard Growth

Pumping iron is good for your body, but consuming iron is good for your beard.

Iron is essential to help hemoglobin (a substance in red blood cells, not a goblin creature) transport oxygen from your head to your toes.

Iron can be found in several foods that have been mentioned like chicken, lentils, eggs, spinach, and broccoli. But in order for iron to absorb properly you also need to consume things with vitamin C like tomatoes, citrus fruits, and peppers.


Biotin for Beard Growth

We’ve talked solely about biotin before because everyone claims that biotin helps your hair grow faster. We mentioned that scientists have yet to confirm this, but we think you may as well consume biotin either way.

Biotin is meant to help convert certain nutrients you consume into energy. But many people noticed it helps the health of their hair skin and nails. Biotin could help your beard become thicker and darker over time.

To consume more biotin you should eat nuts, dairy, meat, fish, eggs, fruits, and vegetables.

This might seem like a lot. But guess what? It is actually pretty simple. Eating foods like eggs, fruits, vegetables, lentils, and meat will help you get all of these nutrients in.

Consuming these nutrients is a great thing to do because it’ll help your beard as well the rest of your health. And better health means a longer life which is basically more time with the amazing beard you are going to have.

So feed your beard!
