Collagen is responsible for many important bodily functions such as strengthening the skin and bones, relieving joint pain and helping blood clot. It’s the most important and abundant protein in the human body. Taking collagen is associated with many health benefits such as improving skin health and elasticity, promoting heart health, controlling weight, and improving gut health. 

Aside from the human body, collagen is also found in the connective tissues of animals. Foods like chicken skin, pork skin, beef, and fish are great sources of this essential protein. One particularly rich source is bone broth, which is made by boiling the bones of chicken and other animals.

Foods that contain gelatin, such as bone broth, also provide collagen. Gelatin is a protein substance derived from collagen after it has been cooked. 

Here are some other foods that may help your body create more collagen:

  • Wild salmon
  • Cod
  • Tuna
  • Eggs
  • Peanuts
  • Avocados
  • Leafy greens like kale and spinach
  • Berries
  • Garlic
  • Chia seeds
  • Pumpkin seeds
  • Pork skin
  • Bone broth

Marine collagen, which is made from fish skin, is also a great source. No Ugly Skin contains 10,000mg of ethically sourced French marine fish Collagen, New Zealand’s very own super-antioxidant Enzogenol® and Vitamin C. It comes in the form of a convenient, delicious, pineapple-flavoured wellness tonic and significantly increases skin elasticity and firmness when consumed daily for at least 4 weeks.
