Collagen – The latest buzz word in the natural world!

We are all collagen deficient. Aesthetically we age from the age of 25 due to loss of Collagen as well as the body’s diminishing ability to make collagen. Our rushed lifestyle, exercise and dieting, breaks down collagen at an even faster pace and we become “collagen deficient.” So we kick start the ageing process at a faster pace & at much younger age ..and it shows! Crows feet, saggy skin, sore joints, etc. The good news is, there are lots that we can do to improve these symptoms!

What is collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body, and acts as a structural building block for your skin, bones, muscles, and all other connective tissue. Including more collagen in your diet, or taking an oral supplement, can improve skin elasticity, reduce wrinkles, and increase skin moisture. Collagen protein powder is collagen that’s been hydrolyzed. The  hydrolysis process breaks down the amino acids in collagen into smaller molecules, making the absorbing process easier for your body.

Boost your collagen levels naturally

“Nutrition is a key factor influencing skin health and consequently its appearance,” says Jaliman. Good sources of collagen include:

  • Bone broth
  • Pork, salmon, and chicken skins
  • Non-steak cuts of meat like tendon, tripe, oxtail, and knuckle
  • Egg yolk and eggshell membranes

It is very beneficial to include a variety of collagen sources into your diet, thereby being certain that you are getting a mix of different collagen types into your body. For instance, beef is full of type I and type III collagens, which strengthen your skin, bones and gut, while fish consists only of type I. Chicken, on the other hand, provides type II collagen — the main component of the cartilage in your joints.

Adequate levels of Vitamin C in the body is essential for the body’s ability to form collagen. “Skin fibroblasts have an absolute dependence on vitamin C for the synthesis of collagen, and for the regulation of the collagen/elastin balance in the dermis,” wrote researchers in a 2017 literature review.

Make sure your diet consists of foods high in Vitamin C and alternatively, also supplement with extra vitamin C, between 1000 and 2000mg a day.
