As we all trying to encourage new collagen to grow, whilst using our home beauty devices, I thought it would be useful for you to know what foods help to build new collagen in the body:
Beans, seeds, nuts are other sources of protein that can help promote collagen. (Only vegetarian options, as I don’t eat meat or fish)
Eggs can be beneficial to the body. Eggs and egg whites contain an amino acid called “proline,” which helps to form collagen in the body. This amino acid can also be found in wheat germ.
Dairy products are known for being high in calcium, which helps promote strong and healthy bones and teeth. They are also high in protein and can promote collagen in the body. Milk, cheese, yogurt and cottage cheese can help make collagen. If you are trying to watch your calories, you can also get these in low-fat varieties.
All fruits are high in fiber, vitamins and–unless they’re dehydrated– have a high water content. Some fruits are high in vitamin C, which helps promote collagen in the body. Examples of these include strawberries, oranges, grapefruits, kiwis and papaya.
Vegetables have vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients, and are also high in water content. Like fruits, some vegetables are also high in vitamin C, such as red peppers, tomatoes, broccoli, brussels sprouts, kale and cauliflower.
