Foods Rich in Collagen


A list of healthy foods rich in collagen Collagen is a very important protein that
makes up 25-35% of the human body. It is used to keep the skin looking youthful and healthy. Collagen is also a building block
used for building teeth, tendons, hair, arteries, cartilage, skin, lymph and cellular meshes
within the internal organs. Unfortunately most people lose collagen as we tend to eat too many junk foods and sugars,
which damages collagen. Aging and vitamin deficiencies can also lower collagen in the
body. In today’s video we share with you a list of 16 healthy foods that will boost collagen
in the body. Eating these regularly will slow down the aging process and protect the body from wrinkles,
hair loss, weak joints and organ damage. 1. Bone Broth
Bone broth is by far the best source of collagen that you can consume. Bones are boiled for
long periods which releases collagen into the water and it becomes gelatin. When we
drink this, the body breaks it back down into collagen and uses it to form cells, tissues,
hair, skin etc.. 2. Blackberries Dark coloured berries such as these are high
in pigments called anthocyanins. These help to boost the production of collagen in the
body rapidly. Berries in particular are rich in nutrients that improves skin health and
radiance. They also reduce the development of wrinkles. 3. Oysters
These shellfish are rich in minerals, especially zinc and copper. These activate proteins and
molecules that are required for synthesizing (or making) collagen in the body. Zinc in
particular activates ‘Collagenase’ which allows you cells to remodel collagen. 4. Beef
We recommend eating grass fed beef at least twice per week. This is made up of essential
amino acids that the body can’t make on its own. It also provides non-essential amino
acids which are used to make up collagen. Beef also contains copper which helps the
body to make collagen. 5. Egg Egg whites contain two of the main amino acids
which make up collagen. These are called glycine and proline. The yellow yolks are also rich
in healthy fats and Vitamin D which helps the skin, bones and muscles. Be sure to purchase
pasture raised eggs (organic). 6. Salmon Wild caught salmon is rich in vitamin A, in
it’s active form called “retinol”. Vitamin A activates genes that triggers the production
of collagen. This is especially important for building soft, moisturized skin. 7. Goats Cheese
This is yet another rich source of Vitamin A which speeds up the production of collagen.
The body also needs saturated fats to make collagen, so cheese, butter and oily fish
are excellent sources. 8. Broccoli Many people are deficient in Vitamin C as
they do not consume enough vegetables. If you are lacking in this, then your body is
unable to absorb collagen and its building blocks from foods that you eat. Broccoli is
one of the best sources of Vitamin C, which also acts an antioxidant. Antioxidants protect
the skin from free radical damage. 9. Rose Hips These small fruits are well known for improving
the health of the skin, hair and nails. Six rose hips provides 132% of the recommended
daily value for Vitamin C. We recommend using these as a supplement to protect the skin,
especially with age. 10. Apple Cider Vinegar Those who suffer with indigestion, gas or
acid reflux often have low stomach acid. If your stomach acid is low, you cannot digest
collagen. Drinking a glass of water with 2tbsp raw apple cider vinegar strengthens the stomach,
and allows you to absorb more nutrients. 11. Butter The skin and connective tissues in the body
are made of protein and fats. For this reason, saturated fats and proteins are used to make
collagen in the body. Butter from grass fed cows provides the raw materials to build collagen.
It is also rich in Vitamin A which activates collagen production at the genetic level. 12. Mineral Water
Drinking a good quality mineral water each day can help the body to produce connective
tissues. We recommend using brands which are from volcanic underground sources. These are
rich in trace minerals which serve as raw materials for building tissues and cells. 13. Raspberries
Another source of anthocyanin’s, vitamin C and antioxidants for the rapid production
of collagen. Add a small handful to your lunch each day to strengthen your immune system
and boost energy levels. 14. Sunflower Seeds Vitamin E is also a very important building
block for collagen, especially if you are going through menopause. Sunflower seeds are
one of the richest sources of this containing 35mg in 100g of seeds. Vitamin E protects
the skin against aging, sun burns, oxidation and scarring. It also supports the pituitary
hormones. 15. Olive Oil Often referred to as “the healthiest fat on
Earth”, it’s no doubt that olive oil has a powerful impact on the body. It is loaded
with Vitamin E for improving skin health and collagen production. It also reduces inflammation
in the body which naturally slows down aging. 16. Gelatin Last but not least gelatin can be used to
boost collagen levels in the body. This comes in powdered form or as gelatin leaves and
can be made into delicious “jellies”. This is extracted from animal bones, just
like bone broth. You can add flavouring and hot water to make a collagen packed dessert,
with very low calories. As you can see there are many foods that you can eat to boost your production of collagen
in the body. Consuming these foods often will reduce the development of wrinkles which are a form of
sagging skin. These foods improve the elasticity of the skin and regulate oil production making it
look more youthful and radiant. Try to consume a handful of seeds and nuts each day to boost your Vitamin E levels if
your skin is most important to you. You should also be avoiding A.G.E’s if you want to protect the youthfulness of the body. These come from proteins and fats that have
been mixed with sugars such as BBQ ribs, deep fried doughnuts and sweetened buffet meats.
These form sticky proteins that trigger rapid and advanced aging. If you have had your gallbladder removed,
we highly recommend consuming ox bile supplements each day. These will help your body absorb
the fats that it needs to build collagen. To learn more about nutrition and healthy foods, please see our other videos. Thank you very much for listening, a like
