collagen rich foods

Have you ever wanted to increase your collagen production? I have a natural approach that works wonders on the skin! Here is a list of nourishing foods that help to increase collagen in the body, and they taste amazing.

As a certified nutritionist, licensed cosmetologist, and holistic beauty expert, I am passionate about teaching individuals about the connection between nutrition and beauty. The foods we eat can transform how we look and feel. Each time we pick up our fork is an opportunity to nourish our beauty from the inside out.

Try these natural ways to increase collagen

Bone broth: my favorite for boosting collagen. Bone broth is one of the rare foods to actually contain a bio-available form of collagen your body can use right away

Leafy Greens: Nutrient-packed greens are a powerful way to prevent collagen breakdown. They contain chlorophyll which is a pigment that gives plants their vibrant color. Chlorophyll increases the precursor to collagen (pro-collagen)

Vitamin C: helps link amino acids that are needed to form collagen. Without adequate amounts of vitamin C, the body can’t form or store collagen

Healthy Fats: healthy fats improve the health of skin cells while lubricating skin for a youthful appearance

Zinc Rich Foods: act as a co factor for collagen synthesis. It can help to slow the rate of collagen breakdown

Protein: collagen is a protein made up of amino acids

and makes up 30% of proteins in the body. Collagen is found only in animals. That means animal sources are the best for collagen

Omega-3-fatty acids: support and protect cell membranes and the structure of the skin

Red Vegetables: contain an antioxidant called lycopene, which acts as a natural sunblock while preventing the skin from damage and increasing collagen

Orange Vegetables: are rich in vitamin A, which restores and regenerates damaged collagen

Sulphur: is a trace mineral that is important for collagen synthesis

Antioxidants: fight free radicals while increasing collagen

By increasing these types of foods in your diet you will have more energy, strong bones, younger-looking skin, and stronger hair, and nails. Beauty from the inside out is what it's all about! Cheers to holistic beauty.

In health and beauty,
