This is to fight off the potential sore throat, a beard will also reduce the chances of infections and will minimise allergens.

Diets & Beards, 8 Top Diet Tips To Promote Beard Growth

Water, do you drink enough? 

Yes, first on the list is water.

Many of us fail to meet the daily requirement for our body’s intake of water.


Not drinking enough water can be stopping your beard growth, as water makes up on average 60% of an adult’s body. This will also reduce oil production in your skin, due to the lack of toxins going through our kidneys as these also affects our hormone levels!

Do you like fish? 

Well if you do then this is good news!


Fish are high in Omega 3, natural fats are not just great for your beard but also your body.

Just ensure you keep within a balance of omega 3 and omega 6. Too much omega 6 and not enough omega 3, Omega 6 will increase estrogen levels in men (yes, estrogen is for the women) resulting in a reduction in testosterone not good for us men as this is a big factor in promoting beard growth as well as muscles.

Sweet Tooth, Me Too! – Cutting Back On Sugar Is A Must!

Yes, to much sugar is bad for you but do you know some of the actual reasoning behind this.


I thought so, Again referring back to testosterone!

Testosterone will reduce due to the intake of sugar, timing can be dependent on the amount of sugar added to food. Also adding a build-up of fat due to having a high-calorie intake.

Morning Coffee, the morning essential to my day!

What’s your morning brew, Coffee or Tea?


Reducing your caffeine intake won't just beneficially help you physically but this will also help you mentally. Did you know that too much coffee drives your adrenaline which also causes you to crash with a mix of cortisol, not so good aye!

Egg-cellent (yes an egg pun)

Eggs are phenomenal for many key benefits, that help build, repair and recover your body from exercise. Being high in protein and the perfect way to start the morning(Scrambled egg on toast). Great for increasing testosterone levels, as mentioned testosterone is great for beard growth. Your body loves it too, Natural in fatty acids, vitamin d & rich in biotin which also promotes beard growth.


Eggs have always been vital in every meal plan, if your looking to lose weight or even gain weight the benefits of eggs make them, in my opinion, the best source for protein again, high in amino acids which also helps increase physical performance.


Yes, you knew it was coming. Great for health and a must in any diet plan.


Beard Fact – Oranges are the best fruit for beard growth. Highly vibrant sources of vitamins, 

Vitamin c being key to boost your beard & hair health. Other key nutrients such as beta-carotene, magnesium & flavonoids (these will also help with amore fuller beard reducing the little pain point PATCHY BEARD!)


Some more great fruits are:


Strawberries (Yum)




All 3 are high in vitamins, great for potassium and magnesium.


You don’t think after all that protein, I ain't going to mention carbs


“no carbs before marbs” – Ever heard that phrase?


Before we talk potatoes and beards, understanding that carbohydrates are a must in everyday life, building muscle, being proactive and fighting the urge to binge potatoes are filled with top quality natural ingredients.

Funny enough so are our products, check out our range Click Here.


As potatoes are high in top quality natural carbohydrates these are brilliant for improving beard growth and the increase in testosterone will result in a boost of facial hair growth.



It’s not all about chicken, Beef is the best meat for beard growth.

Red meat is ace for saturated fats which are soaring with the fatty acids that are needed to increase testosterone synthesis. Now, this isn’t ideal for vegetarians however beef is a quality source of protein from an animal.


Vegetarians – nuts & raisins are also great for your health and improving beard growth. Brazil nuts & macadamia nuts also contain natural fatty acids that help beard growth. Raisins help build a thicker beard!


Reduction in acne-prone skin

You do not have to be a teenager to suffer from acne, in fact up 80% of people have suffered from some form of acne at some point in their lives, this is quite common in adults up to the age of 30.


Growing out your beard won't just hide the acne you currently have it will also add an extra natural layer of oil over your skin. Not shaving also will aid, as you are not constantly opening up the surface making your skin more vulnerable to infections and exposing your skin to bacteria will only make your skin dry out.
