Beards take up a lot of your body’s resources. While it may take a lot of energy to stay clean-shaven from having to take the razor to your face at least once a week, keeping a long and healthy beard involves having your body share its resources with your beard. So now you have to pack extra nutrients for your beard to keep it healthy.
Thankfully the impact is not too great of a strain as the beard doesn’t require that many extra nutrients. Not to mention the amount of nourishment your beard can supplement from applying castor oil, almond oil, or coconut oil on it directly with hands or comb. The good thing about the nutrients that your beard needs to grow and stay healthy, though, is that most of them can be commonly gained through your diet, and most dietary sources of these vitamins are included in an everyday meal.
One of the most critical types of nutrients for promoting and stimulating healthy and amplified hair growth are vitamins, and there are a lot of vitamins that can supplement your facial hair growing process. Here is are 2 of the most common and essential vitamins you need if you want to get a full beard in no time.
Biotin and Pantothenic Acid
Both Biotin and Pantothenic Acid are one of many kinds of vitamins that make up the B-complex. Other notable B-complex vitamins are Vitamins B6 and B12. Biotin is a very well known vitamin among hair and beard stylists and aficionados. There are many supplement options for Biotin from capsule pills that are taken orally, as well as Biotin shampoos directly applied to your hair. Biotin is good for the hair, skin, and nails; and results from Biotin are seen soon after starting the supplements. Pantothenic, on the other hand, is proven to make hair thicker and promote growth. If supplements are not an option, you can get Biotin and B5 from eggs, nuts, avocados, and beef.
Vitamin C is known widely for its role as an antioxidant for your body and promoting your immune response, but what does that mean? As you grow older, your body naturally increases the number of free radicals of oxygen, while Vitamin C’s role as an antioxidant prevents that. Free radicals promote aging, and that includes the hair, so taking Vitamin C pills or eating citrus fruits, milk, and broccoli can help your hair growth from deteriorating.
