Collagen has become a buzzword, mostly because of anti-aging skin benefits. Supplementation can help prevent fine lines overtime, keep the skin feeling plump, youthful and glowing, as well as develop stronger nails and hair. Collagen also aids in exercise recovery and bone/joint health. Beginning in our mid-twenties, collagen production declines. After the age of 40, we experience a 1% decline per year.
Now with so many collagen supplements available almost everywhere, from powders to liquid to gummies, supplementing with collagen can be overwhelming and quite expensive. The good news is, many foods can boost collagen production naturally, making it possible to nourish ourselves and develop healthier skin and joints along the way. Here are 10 collagen boosting foods to help you create your own “Botox in a Bowl.”
Although not a “food”, drinking plenty of water is one of the best ways to keep the skin glowing and joints lubricated. Healthy hint, add a slice or two of fresh lemon to your water for an additional detoxifying benefit that the skin will always love.
Be aware that too much sugar, overly processed foods and oils, caffeine and alcohol can all deplete the skin of its vital nutrients. As much as we should be adding collagen boosting foods into our diets, we should also be cutting back on these aging culprits.
