Guide to Minimizing Collagen Loss

Collagen is important as it's the most abundant protein in our body. It is found in muscles, bones, skin, blood vessels, digestive systems and tendons.

As we age, the body produces less collagen. However, here are some ways you can slow down the loss of collagen:

  • Avoid high sugar foods
    A high-sugar diet speeds up glycation which damages proteins and make collagen dry, brittle and weak.

  • Avoid smoking
    Chemicals in tobacco smoke damage collagen and elastin in skin.

  • Protect yourself from the sun
    Ultraviolet rays from the sun cause collagen to break down more rapidly.

  • Follow a healthy exercise regime
    Exercising stimulates collagen production and promotes healthy blood circulation to the skin.
