Collagen is the most abundant protein present in the human body. Collagen forms connective fibres, which give structure to the skin, bones, teeth, hair, internal organs and muscles.
As person ages, collagen declines. This is one of the reasons a person’s skin starts becoming loose, saggy and wrinkled and stiff joints.
Besides maintaining youthful and glowing skin, we also need collagen for healing bruises, repairing broken bones, maintain a healing digestive system, healthy bones and muscles, shiny hair.
So let’s clear your myth first that “There is no such supplement which can give you collagen, you cannot take collagen from any supplement or diet (only a few sources such as bone broth).
The Truth is Collagen can only be boosted or activated only. The foods such as nuts, seeds, antioxidants, green vegetables and some herbs help to boost your skin collagen and give you flawless and youthful skin.
