Collagen is a protein that our body builds naturally. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body. It is mainly found in the bones, muscles, skin, and tendons. Collagen makes us look and feel young. It helps us to be flexible. Factors that affect our collagen building are age, environmental stress, sun damage, and poor diet can hinder collagen building in each of our cells.
Each cell in our body has a function to build and regenerate itself. The younger we are, the better this function happens. Our body makes collagen by combining amino acids that it extracts from the nutrient rich foods such as red meat, poultry, seafood, legumes; in other words beef, lamb, chicken, turkey, duck, fish, beans, eggs, and dairy products.
An all meat (carnivore) diet will not make the body build collagen. In order for our body to build collagen, we also must eat vitamin “C” rich fruits and vegetables, as well as minerals such as zinc and copper. Vitamin “C” is found in fresh fruit especially citrus and fresh green vegetables. Zinc and copper can be found in your multi-vitamin supplement or best in legumes, potatoes, nuts, seeds and beef. A balanced diet of protein, carbohydrate, fats, fresh greens, and water can increase our overall health!
Up to 60% of the human body consists of water. Our major organs hold the most of the water. The organs in our human body are brain, heart, lungs, and skin. Without water, our body goes into a shock and then dies.
Today, we can find supplements that are made from bovine and poultry collagen and by taking those; we can aid our body in building collagen. However, we suggest, you to consult your doctor before taking any supplements.
