Best Foods To Restore Collagen To Your Skin

The good news is that common foods can help restore Collagen in our skin.  Unfortunately pizza, cookies, and cocktails are not on the list.

What a shock that what is best for our skin is also best for the rest of our body. Green leafy veggies, fruits, fish, and protein.

We’ve researched all the claims and here are the six we thought were the best Collagen builders while being the easiest to incorporate into anyone’s diet.  Not on our list but worth mentioning are yogurt, protein, and oysters.

                                   Bone Broth

When you eat bone broth you’re actually consuming cooked collagen. This is one of the best tips for refurbishing collagen in your skin. The gelatin in the collagen in bone broth also fights inflammation and aging skin and is a boost to stronger finger nails too!

Fish for collagen support

Salmon and Tuna

Tuna and Salmon are high in Omega-3 fatty acid and great for your skin. The Omega 3 fatty acids surround your skin cells and protects them.  When the skin cells are in good condition so is your skin.

Veggies for added collagen


Veggies high in vitamin C, like Spinach and Kale can aid in the production of collagen and veggies that are orange in color, like carrots and sweet potatoes, are high in vitamin A which can restore damaged collagen too.

Berry's good for restoring collagen


Blackberries and raspberries are great for stamping out free radicals while simultaneously increasing collagen levels.
Collagen support


Soy milk, soy cheese, or tofu prompt collagen production and block bad enzymes, like MMPs* that can age the skin. The most aggressive group of enzymes responsible for the reduction of collagen are “matrix metalloproteinases” also know as MMPs.
Fruit for collagen


Citrus fruits like oranges, limes, lemons and grapefruits are high in vitamin C and are good for the restoration of collagen. All antioxidants, especially vitamin C, also help to counterbalance free radicals, which are responsible for loss of collagen and loss of elastin in the skin.
