Eggs are a product that like bone broth, contain collagen itself. Your body can get it right from the yolk. Eggs also contain sulfur which is necessary for the production of collagen and liver detoxication. This means that the toxins that destroy collagen are removed from the body. However, you shouldn’t eat too many — 2 eggs a day is enough.
- Pumpkin seeds are a source of zink that stimulate the production of collagen. The foods that contain zink slow down the breakdown of the protein. Also, zink increases the speed of skin regeneration which is necessary for healthy skin. Fried seeds are the best choice because they contain more healthy substances. 2 tablespoons a day can be added to salads.
- Chia seeds contain omega-3 fats that stimulate the rejuvenation and hydration of skin cells. The skin becomes smooth. An adult person should eat up to. 7 oz of seeds per day. You can add them to cereals, smoothies, or baked goods.
Your diet isn’t all that matters — your lifestyle does too.
The foods from this list can surely support the necessary level of collagen but you should also remember that aside from age, collagen production is influenced by:
- a dirty environment
- a lot of refined sugars and fried food in your diet
