Taking collagen has many benefits,” says Dr. Holly Fennell, one of Toronto’s most respected naturopaths. “For skin, look for a Marine Collagen Peptide formula.”
She adds that, “What’s important to understand is that stomach acids break down collagen and convert it into an amino acid called proline-hydroxyproline. This amino acid increases the skin’s hyaluronic acid content, which in turn, promotes firmer, more hydrated skin. It’s also vital, through diet and antioxidants, to consume the vitamin C and other nutrients needed to produce collagen; food sources as simple as fruits and vegetables, or organic bone broth, which is high in collagen.”
