Collagen is the major component of many tissues in your body and accounts for 80% of the dry weight of your skin, providing it with its strength and structure. Our natural Collagen production starts to slow as we age, and diet and lifestyle habits such as eating high levels of sugar or refined carbohydrates, sun damage and smoking can damage your Collagen.
Vitamin C plays a role in supporting healthy collagen formation, so it is important to maintain healthy levels either by choosing Vitamin C rich foods, such as citrus fruits, peppers, and strawberries. As your body cannot store Vitamin C, it must be consumed daily, and supplements which contain Vitamin C can be used as a top up, if you feel your diet may be falling short. Less popular foods, such as bone broth and chicken or pork skin must be consumed if you wish to incorporate Collagen in your diet.
