How to increase collagen

Collagen is a type of protein that functions to connect cells together. Found in skin, ligaments, corneas, internal organs, blood vessels, etc., it takes up about 30% of the protein throughout the body. Ensuring the smooth functioning of enzymes, vitamin C is essential in the collagen formation process. If there is not enough vitamin C, then collagen formation cannot occur, leading to problems in joint function, bone formation, and the ability to recover from injuries. Further, vitamin C inhibits melanin production and prevents blotching and wrinkles. Since vitamin C is water-soluble, eating fruit, of course, and also taking supplements with water make it easy to absorb. Because of its strong anti-oxidant and anti-stress effects, athletes take in 2000-3000mg of vitamin C per day. Therefore, make sure to get extra vitamin C because it will create collagen in your body.
