The Best Vitamins and Supplements for Beard Growth

The Best Vitamins and Supplements for Beard Growth

READ TIME: 3 MINUTES. If you're looking for that extra bit of beard boost, have you considered a choice of vitamins for beard growth? As someone who has experimented with vitamins and supplements, I've come to understand which nutrients contribute to a fuller, healthier beard. I'll break down the best vitamins and supplements to help you achieve the beard you desire.

The Role of Vitamins in Beard Growth
Vitamins and minerals play critical roles in the health of your beard by nourishing the hair follicles and helping the growth of your beard hair from within your body. Here’s a closer look at the key choices:

Vitamin D
A deficiency in Vitamin D has been linked to hair loss, making it essential for full, healthy beard growth.
Personal Tip: 15-20 minutes of sun exposure daily can top up your vitamin D levels. For those in less sunny locations (like us in Scotland), Vitamin D supplements can be a game-changer.

Biotin, also known as Vitamin B7 is often recommended for promoting hair growth as it plays a role, in producing keratin, a protein that contributes to the health of hair, skin and nails.
Personal Experience: I incorporate biotin foods like eggs, almonds and avocados into my diet regularly. I believe that these foods have greatly enhanced the thickness of my beard.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is recognised for its properties which help combat stress on the scalp benefiting beard health and growth. It also supports blood circulation to deliver nutrients to the hair follicles. This ingredient is a component in Braw Beard oil for this reason.
How I Use It: Apart from taking supplements I make sure to use Braw Beard oils as they are enriched with Vitamin E to nourish the skin beneath my beard directly.

Iron plays a role in aiding blood cells in transporting oxygen to cells throughout the body, including hair follicles necessary for fostering healthy beard growth.
From My Diet: I make it a point to include iron foods such as spinach and red meat in my meals. Additionally I combine them with Vitamin C for absorption.

Omega-3 Fatty Acids
Omega 3 fatty acids are fats that support the maintenance of cells responsible, for influencing hair texture and quality. They provide nourishment for the hair promote hair thickening and help decrease inflammation that may result in hair loss.
Personal Routine: I make it a habit to take fish oil supplements and incorporate flaxseeds and walnuts into my meals to ensure I get omega 3s. Additionally the hempseed oil found in Braw Beard oil is rich, in omega fats.

Zinc plays a significant role in hair tissue growth and repair. It also helps keep the oil glands around the follicles working properly.

Mixing Supplements with Lifestyle Choices

While vitamins and supplements are essential blending them with a healthy lifestyle enhances their effectiveness. Regular physical activity, rest and a rounded diet play a pivotal role, in maintaining an impressive beard just like any supplement does.

Managing Beard Maintenance

To avoid your beard from becoming dull upkeep is vital. Using a beard shampoo (such as Braw Beard Wash) moisturising with oils (like Braw Beard oils) and regular brushing all contribute to its well being and appearance.

Choosing the vitamins and supplements can make a difference in your beard growth journey. By incorporating these nutrients into a grooming routine you're paving the way for a beard that thrives beautifully while looking and feeling robust. Remember, staying patient and committed is key in this endeavor. Cheers, to a beard that commands attention!

Grow and enjoy.
