Proteins are vital when it comes to facial hair growth and eating foods that contain proteins and other important micronutrients are vital. Eggs are rich in proteins and biotin a mineral that is crucial when it comes to growing healthy and beautiful facial hair.

The cholesterol packed in Eggs is also important for the manufacture of testosterone, a hormone that is important for beard growth.In addition, Eggs are rich in lecithin, a compound that boosts the nervous system, such as the day to day functioning of the brain.

In order to realize a health and beautiful beard, you need to eat at least two Eggs per day. You can either cook them or prepare them as you like.

#4. Sorghum

Well, some foods we mention here are not known by many people, but they are good when it comes to growing a healthy and beautiful beard. An example of such foods is sorghum. This gluten-free grain is best when it comes to growing a fuller beard.

Sorghum is a powerful grain when it comes to increasing the synthesis of the enzymes which is necessary for converting testosterone to DHT- the hormone needed for the growth of facial hair.


As we’ve mentioned above that the hormone testosterone is crucial when it comes to beard growth, red meat contains fatty-acid that is necessary for the manufacture of testosterone and so eating beef can boost your beard growth tremendously.

Beef is rich in proteins which facilitate natural facial hair growth.

#6. Gelatin

Gelatin contains amino acids which are responsible for supplementing the body with proteins. If you are looking for ways to grow a healthy and beautiful beard, then you need to add foods rich in amino acids as they are building blocks for proteins that help the body when it comes to the growth of hair, nails, and skin. Note that most of the amino acids in gelatin contain collagen proteins which make it the best food to stimulate facial hair growth.

#7. Fish

Fish is packed with a variety of micronutrients that are helpful to the body. Fish is rich In Vitamin B and is also a rich source of proteins which is necessary for the growth of hair and building of the skin. Moreover, fish is rich in omega-3s that is necessary for the protection of the cell membrane.

#8. White Button Mushrooms

You think white button mushrooms cannot boost beard growth? Well, this one is not known to many, but the truth is that they reduce the production of aromatase enzyme and estrogen levels. Note that aromatase enzymes are responsible for converting the hormone testosterone into the female hormone estrogen. If the aromatase enzyme level is higher, the testosterone hormones decrease. When your male hormones are converted into female hormones, then beard growth decreases.

#9. Orange Juice

Orange juice is rich in fruit sugar fructose which is necessary for lowering the sex hormone binding globulin- SHBG, a hormone that deters testosterone and DHT from being active in the body.

When the SHBG is lowered, testosterone and DHT remain active and hence facilitate the growth of strong and thicker follicles.

#10. Kale

We’ve also mentioned above that certain vitamins and minerals are important when it comes to growing of a healthy and beautiful beard and Kale is one of the foods that is rich in Vitamin A that is used by the body to repair skin tissues.Vitamin A is also a necessary compound for facial hair growth.

The Bottom Line

It is worth noting that these foods are not responsible for beard growth, but they stimulate the production of the hormone testosterone that is necessary for beard growth.

Some foods contain beard growth vitamins and minerals and some stimulate the production of thyroid hormone which increases the beard growth rate naturally.

If you’ve been eating some or all of these foods and but you were not aware that they are beneficial when it comes to growing a healthy and beautiful beard, now you know, if you have never eaten any of them, then it’s time you start adding them to your diet.

But as you eat these foods, you also ought to know that growing a beard does not happen overnight, it will take some time before you can start to see the results, so keep eating them and be patient.
