We are familiar with the importance of collagen for our skin, but is that all there is to it?
Let’s find out what collagen is, its uses, and how it can be boosted.
Collagen is a type of protein found in abundance in our muscles, tendons, bones, and of course, skin.
It forms a framework to hold the body together and give structure to it.
The body starts producing less collagen with age.
High sugar intake and smoking can cause the collagen levels to deplete by a considerable amount.
Long hours in the sun can also cause collagen depletion.
Add chicken, egg whites, fish, citrus fruits, and beans to help boost collagen production.
