What if we told you the trick to stimulating beard growth and growing a full and healthy beard came down to your diet… In today’s world, healthy eating can fall by the wayside – but it doesn’t have to, especially if you want a healthy beard! There are so many fast food and junk food options available and it can be tempting sometimes just to grab something quick and see what happens!
Let’s be honest, we know and you know that isn’t a smart way of approaching your eating, certainly if you are trying to get on top of your dietary habits. Maintaining a healthy weight is a large contributing factor to maintaining healthy organs and a healthy body overall. Whereas certain foods will be good for you from a weight perspective, there are also natural so-called ‘super foods’ out there that can help lower cholesterol, reduce the risk of heart disease and boost your overall energy levels.
Building a healthy diet, building a healthy beard:
Designed for men, these are the elements you want to work into your daily diet:
- The Five a Day. You’ve probably been hearing it for years, but then again they did some studies and it proved some stuff. They’re high in vitamins, minerals, and fibre, and low in calories. Be sure to eat a variety of vegetables of all different colours — think green, orange, yellow, red, etc.
- At least six servings of whole grain breads, cereals, and starchy vegetables. Whole grains contain added fibre to help lower your blood cholesterol and make you feel full. Choose unrefined whole-grain breads and cereals over those that contain refined white flour. Starchy vegetables include peas, corn, potatoes, and dried beans like pinto or kidney. If cooked without a lot of added fat, these vegetables will help you feel full with relatively few calories.
- Two or three servings of low-fat dairy products. Choose skim milk, fat-free or 1 percent yogurt, and low-fat cheeses.
- Two or three servings of lean meat, chicken, and fish. Aim for cuts of meat that arent visibly fatty, remove the skin from chicken and other poultry. Avoid fried or breaded dishes.
- Cut back the sweet stuff. Cut back on foods high in sugar or full of refined carbohydrates like pastries, other desserts, and sweetened cereals. They are high in calories, but provide little or no nutritional benefit.
- Limit your salt intake. Go easy on the salt and limit your intake of packaged food.
- Skip the saturated fats. Butter, cheese, and lard can lead to clogged arteries and heart disease. On the other hand, unsaturated fats like olive oil, walnuts, and avocados, in moderate amounts, can actually help raise your level of the “good” cholesterol (high density lipoprotein or HDL) that protects against heart disease.
There is another way…
Although supplements can never be a replacement for the real thing, they can provide vital help in topping up your levels of vital vitamins and minerals that for whatever reason you are not getting in your daily diet. Man Vit contains a comprehensive formulation of over 10 different vitamins and 8 minerals.Specially developed for men who want to maintain optimum nutrition levels while training or working, who want to help support reproductive health, or help maintain general health and vitality in an otherwise hectic lifestyle. Man Vit represents a simple solution, an advanced one-a-day tablet, which unlike a general multivitamin, has been specifically formulated for men.
You can choose to top it up with our Biotin supplements too. Biotin is clinically proven to stimulate the growth of your hair. Again it can be found it some foods, although Biotin is known as one of the harder vitamins to get enough of, through just diet alone.
