Our next post will cover the important subject of diet. A good diet is key to growing a good, healthy beard. With proper nutrition your beard will grow faster, be stronger and look and feel better. Plenty of protein is the key. Growing a beard is like building muscles and requires an abundant amount of necessary amino acids. Lean, low-fat meat and poultry are protein staples as well as seafood rich in omega-3 fatty acids, like salmon, trout, sardines, anchovies and herring. Also be sure to get your fair share of nuts, seeds, yogurt, and eggs.
