In today’s health, fitness, and beauty circle, collagen is a hot topic that we all are interested in. Plant-based collagen or vegan collagen has been gaining popularity in the modern world for all the good reasons and we can’t be more excited.
As the collagen molecules are too large for our skin to absorb, just applying collagen-containing skincare products is not of much use. Healthy plant-based diet, Ayurvedic Herbs and Ayurvedic facial treatments, all combined, can help our skin boost collagen production. Here are a few tips that may help:
Protect yourself from Cellular Damage
Cellular damage is linked to ageing. These damaged cells produce toxic molecules called free radicals that react with non-toxic molecules on the skin and damage it further more. When you take a plant-based diet, the antioxidants present in it react with free radicals and neutralize them. Along with that, giving your body full rest each day is also very important. Effects of poor sleep can be clearly seen on a person’s body and skin. Both the quality and duration of sleep are essential for a person to prevent the body from showing the signs of ageing.
Eat Nutrient Rich Diet
Vitamin A and C play an important role in collagen production in our skin. It is also true that most plant-based foods contain both these vitamins. At the same time, there are some foods that are richer in one of the two vitamins. Citrus fruit, amla, (Indian gooseberry), papaya, kale, berries, spinach, mushrooms, brussels sprouts, broccoli, cabbage, red peppers, cauliflower, cranberries, pineapples, cantaloupe, carrots, most squashes, sweet potatoes, almonds, pumpkin seeds, and carrots are some of the best foods that work great with our body to produce collagen.
Go for Anti-Inflammatory Foods
There is no denying the fact that plant-based diet offers anti-inflammatory properties. Add good lots of foods like avocados, beans, almonds, and low-starch foods to reduce inflammation in the body and promote collagen production to a great extent.
Along with that, you can also add Turmeric Vegan Collagen Latte to your diet to get the maximum benefits of your plant-based/vegan diet to boost collagen production.
