Collagen is the most abundant protein in your body & it is there to serve as a major building block for your bones, skin, muscles, tendons & ligaments. Collagen acts like a “glue”for the body & holds everything together. As you age (yes it isn’t our favourite thing either) the collagen in our bodies decreases which could lead to less firm & supple skin, wrinkles (another one of our favourites)less flexible ligaments, weakening muscles, joint pain & it may thin the lining of your digestive tract.
One of the key nutrients your body needs to produce collagen is Vitamin C. Not only will this help with collagen production but as most of you know it helps to strengthen your immune system too. Vitamin C can be found in citrus fruits, bell peppers, strawberries, kale, broccoli, spinach & other dark green leafy veggies as well as our Vitamin See smoothie ; ). Other vitamins & nutrients like iron, proline, glycine, threonine, and zinc are also important in the collagen production process.
