Collagen is a protein found as a component of connective tissue in the human body. According to reports, collagen provides the skin with maximum moisture from the inside and gives the skin a youthful firm appearance.

What is collagen anyway?

Collagen is one of the main organic components of our skin, making up 80% of it. The protein is also found in bones, tendons, cartilage and teeth - but its most elementary role is as a component of connective tissue.


"Collagen is a major component of the human body and crucial for e.g. healthy muscles, smooth skin, shiny hair and healthy fingernails. To stay healthy, strong and agile, we need sufficient amounts of collagen peptides."

What is collagen good for?

Collagen in the skin can be compared to a scaffold that keeps our skin tight, firm and elastic and prevents it from collapsing and forming wrinkles. So, at a young age, the collagen scaffold is still very strong, while as we age, it becomes weaker and weaker, creating the perfect foundation for wrinkles in the skin. It is important to note that collagen production does not only become weaker because nature intended it that way - external influences such as smoking, solar radiation or environmental pollution also contribute their (negative) part to the fact that collagen is formed less and more slowly.


Food products that contain pure collagen are always of animal origin. These are, for example, pork or beef rinds, oxtail or meat cooked on the bone. Gelatin is also composed of 90% collagen.

But to supply the body with more collagen, relying directly on animal bones is unnecessary. Another way, much more pleasant for all vegetarians, is to take various other vitamins, which in turn are responsible for collagen formation. Important in this respect are, for instance, vitamin A and vitamin C, which are indispensable for collagen production. Vegetables can also help in this respect, as spinach, cabbage, parsley, or carrots provide the body with good vitamins. Fruit and vegetables often also contain lycopene, which has an antioxidant effect and removes stress from the cells. In addition, oatmeal is considered a natural promoter of collagen production as it contains a lot of L-arginine, essential for cell renewal. Eggs also provide your body with the amino acids lysine and proline. With their help, collagen can also be produced better.





They taste delicious and are fun to eat. It does not make you forget to take your daily vitamins.
