Collagen is an essential substance for the skin, for a young and beautiful look!

See what foods you can consume to stimulate its production!

Our body produces less collagen as we get older.

It is located beneath the epidermis. It is the basis of tissues that support the structure of the skin and organs.

Sun, free radicals, cigarette smoke or pollution also contribute to lowering its levels.

In order to “repair” the damaged cells, the body always produces collagen. But around the age of 35, the level of this substance and its quality begin to decrease.

There are many collagen creams and products on the market, but they cannot do wonders.

We can also stimulate the collagen production of our body with a healthy lifestyle including certain foods in the diet.

Here are some:

White tea

Researchers have found that white tea protects skin proteins.

In addition, it reduces the activity of enzymes that lead to wrinkles.

Citrus

They are rich in vitamin C and can turn certain amino acids into collagen.

Green vegetables

Spring greens, broccoli, spinach or kale are rich in vitamin C which has antioxidant properties.

Orange vegetables

Carrots and sweet potatoes regenerate the skin because they contain vitamin A.

Red vegetables

Tomatoes, red peppers and red beets contain a natural antioxidant that protects the skin from ultraviolet.

Protein

Egg proteins are rich in collagen. They support the natural production of this substance. Consumption of nuts has the same role.

Soy

Soy contains genistein, a substance that acts as an antioxidant.

Pure fish oil

The skin cells are surrounded by a fatty membrane that protects them. When they are healthy, they are able to support the structure of the skin. The fish is rich in Omega 3, and the benefits of oil consumption are countless for health, especially for internal organs tissues.

Today's paradox: we have the most developed medicine of all time, but at the same time we have the highest percentage of sick people. The idea of being healthy is perceived differently by people (by each person). The way of thinking falls under the lack of health education, which leads to diseases. Unfortunately, the idea that physicians are fully responsible for our health has led to the fact that people today do not have a practical knowledge base in terms of health and its maintenance.
