15 Natural Collagen Foods To Keep You Looking Young & Fresh

A Cheap Skin Care Transformation

We all want to stay looking as young as we possibly can don’t we?

And when it comes to getting younger looking skin, we will try anything to get it.

But… only a small percentage of us realize we can get natural collagen from foods.

More on this later.

Have you tried any of these to stay looking younger?

  • Serums
  • Masks
  • Supplements
  • Powders
  • Moisturizers
  • Botox
  • etc…

And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with any of these.  If fact, I highly recommend that you invest in pampering yourself with a face mask, supplements or even botox if that’s the length you want to go to, to get rid of those wrinkles.

However, all of this can cost a LOT of money.

But, did you know that all you need to do is to eat the right foods to get natural, organic collagen?

Yes, and in a way, that makes getting your collagen boost for free!

When I studied for my Anti Aging Therapy Diploma, we didn’t study much about topical anti wrinkle creams, it was all to do with what’s going on inside of us.

If you can partly control what’s going on inside of you, by eliminating eating harmful foods and eating the right ‘anti aging’ foods, then that will go a much longer way than slapping on some wrinkle potions.

Organic Collagen Foods

So today we’re going to take a look at collagen rich foods which specifically give you an organic collagen boost.

Eat more of these collagen foods and you’ll start to not only look more fresh-faced and glowing, but your body will be thanking you too as you’ll have more energy than what you’ve had in years.

But first…

What Exactly is Collagen?

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and it’s in everything:

  • Bones
  • Teeth
  • Hair
  • Skin
  • Eyes

But since today we’re specifically talking about trying to keep our skin looking younger, then collagen goes a long way to keeping our skin stay firm and supple.

When we get older we produce less and less collagen, which is one of the reasons why we start to get sagging skin and those fine lines and wrinkles.

Hence, we all start to look for a collagen boost and manufacturers have ‘kindly’ produced an abundance of collagen products to keep up with the demand.

However today we’re going to focus and look at the specific foods which helps us produce collagen organically within our bodies.

What To Eliminate To Keep Looking Younger

Bur first, I’ll just quickly go over what you should eliminate, or seriously cut back on, in order to stay looking younger.

These are harmful to our skin:

  • Smoking
  • Sunlight
  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Standard American Diet (SAD)*

All of these things really break down your collagen.

Remember, our natural collagen is produced less and less anyway as we get older, but if you’re doing any of the above in excess, then you’re definitely speeding up the breakdown of collagen in your body.

So there’s no point in eating all the delicious collagen enhancing foods mentioned below, if you’re counteracting them with these harmful lifestyle choices.

*Burgers, trans fats, white bread, chemicals etc.

How To Get More Natural, Organic Collagen From Foods

The good news is that there are lots of things we can do to get our collagen working again, i.e. stimulate it’s production, and eating the right foods is key.

But because there are so many foods which give a natural collagen boost, I just wanted to keep things simple here and give you a run-down of the main ones which you should be incorporating into your daily diet.

And we’ll do this by looking at the vitamins in food specifically with organic collagen in mind. I know there are other antioxidant and amino acid benefits in these vitamins, but I wanted to keep things as simple as possible and strictly keep to collagen specifics.

Vitamin A:

What It Does: Restores and regenerates collagen damage and therefore helps renew the skin at a cellular level.

Foods With Vitamin A Collagen:

  • Oranges
  • Cantaloupe
  • Egg Yolks
  • Sweet Potato

Vitamin B:

What It Does: Vitamin B has a lot of sulfur in it and sulfur is a critical component in creating more collagen.

Foods With Vitamin B Collagen:

  • Onions
  • Garlic

Vitamin C:

What It Does: Vitamin C is a really important antioxidant but it is also a critical co-factor in creating collagen.

Foods With Vitamin C Collagen:

  • Red peppers
  • Kiwi Fruit
  • Strawberries
  • Grapefruit
  • Lemon
  • Oranges

Amino Acids:

What It Does: Amino Acids are a good quality protein and therefore helps feed and stimulate your collage protein production.

Foods With Protein Amino Acids:

  • Legumes
  • Seeds
  • Nuts

Putting It All Together

As I said above, this is a very simplistic way to get across which foods are high in collagen which will contribute to boosting the organic collagen in your body.

I didn’t want to complicate things by adding in which fruits have the best antioxidants or calcium or magnesium etc. That could turn into a whole book!

I  just wanted to narrow it right down as to what foods to include in your daily diet which will give you a natural collagen boost.

But of course, by eating these foods you’ll also be eating bucket loads of other vitamins, minerals and antioxidants too which will give you a whole lot of other amazing side health and anti aging benefits too.

Top Tip: It is best to eat these foods raw.  This is because when you cook food it loses all the enzymes, natural vitamins and collagen in them.

I explain why eating raw food is exceptional for anti aging purposes in this article:

So when preparing your (raw) meals, make sure you include the above organic collagen boosting foods in too and you’ll soon by a healthier, younger-looking you!
