How to promote collagen in your body.

The benefits of collagen are no secret. From collagen for skin, to collagen for hair, gut health and almost everything in between – it’s a health shop and health-conscious consumer favourite. So, how do we promote more of it in our bodies and how does it all work?

Let’s start here: what is collagen?

Collagen is everywhere in our bodies. It’s the glue that holds us all together. As one of the most abundant proteins around (making up ⅓ of all the protein in your body) you can find it in your bones, skin, tendons, your muscles, and more. It’s an important ingredient in maintaining skin elasticity and is the main component in our connective tissue. In short: collagen is essential for helping our bodies move and function. Studies show that supplementing with collagen can be helpful with managing conditions like osteoarthritis by supporting joint health. When your collagen levels decrease as you get older, you become more susceptible to stiffer tendons, shrinking muscles, wrinkles, joint pain, and gastrointestinal problems because of the thinning of your digestive tract. 

How your diet can support collagen production.

Collagen is naturally produced in our bodies as a protein, but you can up your intake by eating foods that stimulate the production of more collagen. Protein-rich foods are your best bet: chicken, beef, fish, beans, eggs, and dairy products will all help your body convert collagen
