Boost Collagen Using Vitamin C

Vitamin C


Want to boost collagen?  Vitamin C is key. But did you know human beings are only 1 of 4 animals who can not manufacture or store Vitamin C on their own? This is true, according to a recent article titled “Two Nutrients for Beautiful Skin.”  You need to ingest 75-90 mg daily, and the upper limit is 2,000 mg daily for your health. Vitamin C will boost collagen to make your skin firm, tight, flexible, glowing, and youthful.


Vitamin C is critical for your health because it helps protect the fat-soluble Vitamin A and Vitamin E as well as fatty acids from aging oxidation. Vitamin C protects your skin from photoaging and solar radiation. It also can be beneficial in the treatment of iron deficiency anemia.

Vitamin C is vital to boost collagen. Collagen is a form of fibrous protein that is naturally present in your body but diminishes as you age. The results of low collagen production include weaker muscles, bones, ligaments and also wrinkles, thinning skin and brittle hair. Collagen works to reduce the signs of aging by plumping up your skin, making it firm and flexible to provide strength and firmness.


You can prevent and reverse the effects of collagen deficiency. Continue reading and we’ll show you how you can boost collagen to combat the signs of aging and regain your youthful looking skin.
