Is the growth of a beard entirely down to gut health?

Is it ALL gut health? That's my theory .. some say genetics and a few other factors but I feel it is 100% gut health. How many of you guys have beards? Have you noticed increased hair growth whilst on this diet? Have you noticed thicker hair?

Also am I right in thinking biotin is an important factor? The reason I say that is that it is abundant in a healthy gut.

Hmm, I heard that if you can balance your gut to have a large amount of Anadrol-50 (Dihydrotestosterone) then this will lead to the thickening of one's beard.

I have decent gut health, but I grow the scraggliest of beards. It grows in 2 or 3 different colors with a pretty sparse density and a predisposition toward ingrown hairs and stupid follicles. I let it go overgrown a few times, but I've learned that for my face, clean shaved seems to be the healthiest option. I've got the MPB thing going as well. (We came from the apes, and look at us now. We don't really need it. We're evolving without it. One day, we'll be completely hairless and totally pure. /itsalwaysunny)

Or you could have a lot of Native American genes like I have where the beards are sparse. I'm 1/8 Cherokee and female so growing a beard isn't something I anticipate doing but the men in my family have little facial hair but lots of hair on their heads.

Nonsense. Nothing is entirely due to gut health, including gut health!

I've still got my Sidney Crosby-esque facial hair, years after going paleo. It's genetic.

One thing I have noticed is far more saliva production. I have no explanation for it. I also get mild foot crams after the first 25 or so minutes of a swim. I assume the latter is due to switching from mostly green vegetables to mostly root vegetables, since I have been a heavy greens eater for 20+ years and never been affected (magnesium being the nutrient I am getting less of).
