Boost Your Collagen Naturally

Three generations of women boosting collagen naturally


Simple Collagen Boosting Tips

Collagen is like your body’s natural superglue—it keeps your skin supple, your joints moving smoothly, and your overall vitality buzzing. But as we get older, our bodies start making less of it. Don’t worry, though; there are some great natural ways to ramp up your body’s collagen production. Ready to boost your collagen levels naturally? Here’s how you can keep looking and feeling fabulous

1. Eat Vitamin C-rich foods

Vitamin C isn’t just great for warding off colds but also for collagen production. Enjoying Vitamin C-rich foods like oranges, strawberries, kiwis, and capsicums can help keep your skin glowing and joints happy.

2. Include Protein in Your Diet

Collagen is made up of amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. To help your body produce more collagen, include protein-rich foods like chicken, fish, tofu, dairy products, and legumes in your meals.

3. Add Antioxidants to Your Routine

Antioxidants help protect and promote collagen growth. Foods like blueberries, nuts, green tea, and dark chocolate contain antioxidants. They not only boost your collagen but also fight off damaging free radicals.

4. Get Your Beauty Sleep

Never underestimate the power of a good night’s sleep. Sleep is when your body repairs itself, and this includes collagen production. Aim for 7-9 hours per night to help your body rejuvenate. You can also add a sleep supplement like our Sleep & Skin Renewal super powder to help you get a more restful night’s sleep. This is particularly helpful if you are in perimenopause or menopause and experiencing insomnia or waking up at 3.00 am.

5. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Staying hydrated ensures that your body can optimally produce collagen. Make sure you’re drinking plenty of water throughout the day. If you don’t like the taste of water, you can visit our article on hydration hacks

6. Consider Natural Supplements

Natural supplements like our super powders all include 3g of hydrolysed marine collagen. Always choose high-quality supplements and consult a healthcare provider before starting any new regimen.

By incorporating these tips into your daily routine, you’ll be on your way to boosting your natural collagen production. Here’s to a healthier, more vibrant you.
