In the age of endless diets, cleanses, routines, and just about everything you can imagine, it can be easy to get lost in the noise. In this article, we’ll aim to cut through all of the noise and give you the facts about different vitamins and minerals that you can add or emphasize in your diet to give your beard everything it needs to thrive.

Before We Begin...

Before diving into the different nutrients and their benefits we want to emphasize that there’s no substitute for consulting with a certified dietitian. Going into a meeting with specific goals in mind and an experienced professional mapping out what that might look like on a daily basis is ideal. With that being said, below we dove into some of the must-have pieces of a diet with a goal of having a badass beard.


Collagen’s amino acids help build hair proteins and make the skin surrounding your hair roots stronger. Having a diet consisting of or supplemented by collagen can also prevent hair follicle damage.


Hair follicles are made mostly of protein, meaning a diet that is deficient in protein isn’t giving your body the right nutrients for even basic growth and hair structure. Meats, nuts, dairy, and protein supplements are all great ways to up your daily protein intake.

Vitamin B6 & B12

Both Vitamins B6 and B12 promote the healthy growth of hair, skin, and nails. These vitamins are naturally occurring in fish, poultry, eggs, nuts, and more. They have also shown to reduce stress which is a known culprit when it comes to hair loss and a lack of hair re-growth.


We’ve gone in-depth on the powerful effects of biotin, but we’ll toss a spark notes version in here as well. Having the proper amount of biotin in your diet has shown to help strengthen hair, skin, and nails while a lack of the right amount of biotin has been linked to hair loss.
