When we think of food, we look at it from one lens. We need it to survive, and if we can afford to remember, we have to eat a few pieces of fruit and vegetables here and there. You're not reading the back of an ingredient label, so for the sake of time, we're going to spare you the explanations of what you should and shouldn't be eating. Instead, we're going to tell you about foods that you need to eat in order to grow that beard of yours that you cherish so much.
Now wait…. Before you click off our website, we know avocados can be an acquired taste, but these green pieces of fruit are packed with vitamins and minerals to help grow your beard. For example, avocados contain Vitamin B5, which protects your adrenal glands. Your adrenal glands govern a variety of hormones in your body related to immunity, blood pressure, and stress. More stress equates to hair loss, so pick up an avocado or two the next time you're at the grocery store.
Everyone's favorite juice is essential for hair growth. Orange Juice is packed with Vitamin C, which stimulates beard growth. Also, Vitamin C creates a component called collagen, which is important for the maintenance of your skin and the stabilization of your hair follicles in your beard. Drink more OJ, but please…. Hold the liquor until the weekend festivities.
Eggs aren't just a popular breakfast food that we eat in the morning. They can help you to grow your beard due to the protein that's packed inside of them. Also, just like avocados, eggs contain Vitamin B5 and hormones that help you build muscle.
There are so many things that can be said about dark chocolate. With its rich texture and ingredients, dark chocolate is pretty much a part of every health list out there known to man. But since we're on the topic of beards, we can tell you that dark chocolate contains iron and zinc, both which stimulate cellular growth within the body. Cellular growth means that those hair follicles that you lose everyday can be replaced at the same strength and capacity as before.
Almonds are another food that's consumed for a variety of reasons. People associate almonds with increased brain activity and anti-cancer properties, but almonds can also help with beard growth. Almonds contain beard-friendly nutrients such as biotin, boron, and Vitamin E. Make sure you put some almonds in your snack drawer at work or mancave section at home.
