Collagen can also be found in abundance in bones, joints, tendons and ligaments, as well as in hair and nails. When the body makes collagen, it combines the amino acids you get from eating protein-rich foods, with other important nutrients such as vitamin C and zinc.
Sadly, collagen production decreases as we age, with other lifestyle factors such as too much sun and eating too many refined carbohydrates also impacting the body’s ability to produce collagen.
Collagen intake can be improved by increasing foods high in collagen such as bone broth, or animal products such as meat, fish and eggs, or you can consider enhancing your diet with a collagen supplement.
