Collagen keeps you tight it is important for youthful skin

Hyderaabad: 22 May 2022 : Nutritionist Bhakti Kapoor explains in an Instagram post that Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. “It is the substance that holds the body together. Collagen forms a scaffold to provide strength and structure,” she says.
In my last post had shared some fun facts about collagen and today I’m sharing some foods to help boost your collagen.
Diet plays a surprisingly large role in the appearance and youthfulness of your skin.
Foods contain a bioavailable form of collagen your body can use right away, making it arguably superior to supplements. Eating collagen-rich foods or foods that boost collagen production may also help create the building blocks (amino acids) you need for your skin goals.
Other nutrients that aid the process of collagen production include zinc, vitamin C, and copper. So, fruits and vegetables high in vitamins and minerals are also a friend to supple skin.
And, for even more dramatic results, be sure to stay away from too much sugar and refined carbohydrates, which can cause inflammation and damage collagen.
Collagen isn’t only for smooth, elastic skin. Collagen may also help with joint pain, muscles, or digestion.
These foods will help you create collagen in your body and when in doubt you can always supplement with a collagen powder.
