After all the Beard Oriented products I’ve used over the years, that have all had the impact of a cotton ball on water, I’ve found something that is having an effect on my Beard! It’s only too bad I can’t specifically point to the one thing. I’ve been taking a multi-vitamin for a year or two now, so that’s not it as the results have only recently started being noticed. I’ve been taking HIGH doses of biotin for years now, so that’s definitely NOT the cause. In April I started walking daily and began making adjustments in my diet where it needed work on, serious work. In mid July I joined a gym and have gotten into it so much, I’ve started using supplements. In the past few months I’ve started taking Creatine (which I’m sure has no bearing on Beard/Hair growth), BCAA’s (branched chain amino acids) and I doubt they’re the cause. The one thing I do take, that I think is having the effect it’s having is Whey Protein. I’m finally getting the proper amount of protein in my diet and I believe this is what is causing my Beard ‘improvement.’
Lately when I shower and wash The Beard, I’ve noticed it has seemed a LOT thicker then usual. Since I’m in Florida and not an animal, I don’t believe it’s my fur getting thicker for Winter. It’s definitely thicker; I can feel it, and a buddy at the gym just yesterday noted ‘your Beard is getting a lot thicker!’ So good, it’s not just me thinking that; it IS getting much thicker. Though I can’t specifically point out what is causing this, I am thinking it’s the Whey Protein. We know protein is essential for many things in the body and hair is one of them. I do note there is NO change in the hair on my head though. lol What’s left of it that is!
So here goes to much more Whey Protein in my future, a thicker Beard, and more muscley muscles! 😀

Thinking about this over and over, I finally remembered I’d been taking a Testosterone Booster over this time period too. I am over 50 so figured it would be helpful with the weight lifting. I think now that the Beard growth is probably related more to this then to the protein, though I’m sure that’s not hurting.
