Collagen is a naturally occurring protein that plays a vital role in providing structural support to keep our skin firm and prevent sagging. However, from our mid-twenties on, our natural collagen production starts to slow down and stress, sleep deprivation and even cardio can lead to further collagen breakdown. Luckily, we can help support and boost our collagen supply with smart diet choices.

In this episode, we talk to Jennifer Hanway, a board-certified holistic nutritionist, about five incredible foods that play a pivotal role in boosting natural collagen production. From protein-packed sources that lay the foundation for collagen synthesis to the critical role of Vitamin C, we’ll learn how to incorporate these five superfoods into our daily diets.

  • Protein: High-quality protein sources lay the foundation for collagen synthesis, promoting skin elasticity and strength. Learn which foods Jennifer recommends and how to easily identify the optimal serving size.
  • Collagen Powder: Collagen powder supplementation can support your body's natural collagen production process – but not all are created equal.  
  • Vitamin C: This powerful antioxidant not only boosts collagen formation but also safeguards your skin against pesky free radicals, keeping premature aging at bay.
  • Zinc: The unsung hero in collagen synthesis, zinc plays a crucial role in maintaining firm and supple skin. Foods that are high in zinc include oysters, beef, pumpkin seeds, lentils, dark chocolate and yogurt.
  • Fermented Foods / Probiotics: Explore the connection between a healthy gut and collagen production, and learn how fermented foods can provide an essential source of anti-oxidants.
