3 meals you would not believe are rich in collagen
February 27, 2019
Collagen rich foods are a great way to ensure that you are getting a sufficient and sustainable amount of collagen. There are so many benefits to collagen, so eating a collagen rich diet is a must to feel your happiest and most nurtured self.
Bone broth is a rich source of collagen, but this isn’t the only meal that helps to naturally boost collagen levels in your body. We’ve rounded up three of our favourite foods that are rich in collagen.
Spinach and Pepper Frittata
Dark green vegetables, such as spinach, rev up collagen production thanks to the high vitamin C content. Vitamin C stimulates the body to create collagen and stabilises the messenger enzymes that tend to break collagen down in the body.
Egg whites also contain the amino acids glycine and proline that make up collagen.
Red peppers are packed with lycopene, an antioxidant that acts as a natural sunblock. It prevents damage to your skin while also increasing collagen levels in your body.
Garlic is known to be one of the best sources of sulfur, which is needed to produce collagen. Garlic is also full of lipoic acid and taurine, which help repair damaged collagen fibres.
Lemon Garlic Tilapia
Tilapia is a mild, inexpensive seafood option with a host of health benefits. If you’re someone who doesn’t like the ‘fishiness’ that comes with seafood, tilapia is a great option as the fish flavour is very mild.
Not only is tilapia a lean source of protein, but it’s also packed with B12, selenium and potassium. Plus, it’s a food rich in collagen. It stimulates fibroblasts to produce collagen, which heals wounds and looks after your skin.
Absolute Collagen uses hydrolysed marine collagen, which is sourced from fish. Marine collagen helps skin, joints, hair and nails. It can even help heal the gut while acting as an appetite suppressor.
Baked Sweet Potatoes, Avocado & Queso Fresco
Sweet potatoes have a high amount of vitamin A, which helps to restore collagen that has been damaged.
Packed with healthy fats and vitamin E, avocados support your skin. Vitamin E also serves as an antioxidant that enhances collagen’s functionality.
Incorporating collagen rich foods into your diet with these healthy, nutrient-filled recipes will leave you feeling better from the inside out.
You can take your daily Absolute Collagen sachet alongside your meals to maximise the benefits or take straight from the sachet first thing for a morning collagen boost.
