5 Simple Daily Habits to Boost Your Collagen Intake

5 Simple Daily Habits to Boost Your Collagen Intake

Collagen is the secret ingredient to keeping our skin looking younger, and our hair and nails healthy. As the single most abundant protein in the body, and a building block for connective tissue, collagen is essential to healthy skin, muscles, tendons, bones, and cartilage. As we get older, our body makes less collagen, and those body parts can start losing strength and elasticity. Boosting our daily collagen intake can support youthful radiance, and overall vitality.

Eat Your Greens: Packed with vitamin C, and other antioxidants that protect against collagen-depleting free radicals, leafy vegetables play an important role in collagen synthesis. Include spinach, kale, and broccoli into your meals for healthy skin and agile joints!

Add Collagen-Rich Foods: Think bone broth, fish, lean meat, and egg whites. Packed with collagen and amino acids – the building blocks of protein – these help make up for what we lose with age. Plus they're great for gut health and have a load of other benefits!

Wear Sun Protection: Sun exposure can break down collagen faster. Even if it's cloudy, slap on some sunscreen or wear a hat to protect your skin – helping shield against sun damage, which accelerates collagen breakdown and inhibits natural production. 

Cut Down On Sugar: Too much sugar leads to the formation of advanced glycation end products (AGEs) – messing with collagen's ability to fix itself. Fill your plate and cup with whole, unsweetened foods and beverages, and skip the candy, soda, and sugar-loaded snacks.

Add Encore Collagen Supplements: The easiest way to get more collagen? Mix a serving of Encore's Shine Collagen into your favorite hot or cold drinks, like coffee or smoothies. Or, add a scoop or two to just about any recipe – like muffins or soups.
