Here is the list of collagen-rich foods that are good for your skin

These collagen-rich foods promote healthier and more radiant skin and perfect for your anti-aging skincare routine.

The skin is the biggest part of our body and it somehow reflects the health of an individual. Marisa Moore, RDN, LD explained that “Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is present in skin, muscle, bone, and connective tissues and plays a key role in joint health and maintaining supple skin and elasticity.

Collagen-rich foods

As a person ages, the body produces less collagen. With this, the help of collagen-rich foods is important. Here is the list:

#1 Fish with the skin

There’s a high concentration of Type I collagen in the skin of a fish. It is aside from the fact that fish, in general, is already a great option as it’s rich in the amino acids needed to produce collagen.

#2 Red bell pepper

Red bell peppers have a lot of Vitamin C that is the primary nutrient involved in collagen synthesis.

#3 Tomatoes

Tomatoes contain high levels of vitamin C needed for collagen production and antioxidant lycopene as well.

#4 Bone broth

The how & why of bone broth🍖 Bone broth is perfect for this time of year. It's warming, cozy, delicious, and so good for you!⁠ .⁠ @_cranej_ is the bone broth master at our house. The strategy I've learned is "throw it all in!" Here are some starter ideas:⁠ .⁠ – a big pot⁠ – 1-2 pounds beef and/or chicken bones (pre-cooked for more nutrients)⁠ – a splash of apple cider vinegar (this helps break down the bones)⁠ – carrots – 1 is good⁠ – celery – 1-2 stalks⁠ – half a yellow onion⁠ – rosemary – 1-2 sprigs⁠ – mushrooms – 2-3⁠ – 1 tbsp salt⁠ – parsley to taste⁠ – water, enough to fill the pot⁠ .⁠ Cover this concoction and bring it to a boil. Then reduce to a simmer and cook for 12-24 hours. What?! Yes. That helps to get all the nutrients from the inside of the bones out. ⁠ .⁠ After 12-24 hours, remove the bones & veggies, strain the broth, and enjoy! Drink by itself or save for a soup.⁠ .⁠ Why is bone broth so good for us? ⁠ .⁠ Bone broth is FULL of nutrients: collagen, glucosamine, chondroitin sulfate, & gelatin – all which help support connective tissues in the body. ⁠ .⁠ This means healthy bones, bone rebuilding, supple joints, healthy hair, strong nails, elastic, moisturized skin, nourished gut #leakyguthealing, & a happy gut-brain connection! What more could you want!?⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ .⁠ #bonebroth #bonebrothheals #bonebrothrecipes #healthylife #healthylifestyles #hairskinandnails #health

It is known as one of the most well-known and popular sources of collagen.

#5 Berries

They are a great source of vitamin C that’s works wonders on the skin. Furthermore, berries have ellagic acid which fights against UV rays damage, according to research.

#6 Beef

Beef contains three of the amino acids that make up collagen – glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline.

#7 Citrus fruits

Citrus fruits are rich in Vitamin C that helps link amino acids during collagen production. 

#8 Eggs

The Egg yolk contains collagen that will help keep your hair nice and shiny while the egg whites also carry the amino acids needed to make collagen.

#9 Dark leafy greens

Chlorophyll, the source of the pigment, may increase the amount of procollagen which is the precursor to collagen.

#10 Chicken

Chicken has all of the amino acids required to make collagen, just like the beef and fish.

#11 Legumes

These foods contain many minerals and proteins that will help your skin.

#12 Oysters

Oysters contain high levels of copper which is another form of mineral that helps create collagen.
