Top Collagen Killers & Boosters that Affect Ageing


Throughout your life, collagen fibres constantly break down and regenerate. Unfortunately however as we age, the rate of collagen break down becomes faster than your body’s ability to produce new collagen fibres. This process is what causes signs of aging such as  wrinkles, joint pain and inflammation.

However age isn’t the only factor that causes collagen breakdown. There are key collagen killers that can accelerate this process and therefore cause you to age faster.

The top collagen killers include: 

  • Poor sleep

  • Too much sugar in the diet

  • High cortisol caused by stress

  • Injuries and joint degeneration

  • Too much sun exposure

  • Vitamin C & Zinc deficiencies

  • A diet low in antioxidants

  • Lack of physical activity

  • Poor gut health

  • Free radicals & inflammation

On the flip side, there are collagen boosters that can help slow down this process and offset the collagen killers.

The top collagen boosters include: 

  • Organic bone Broth

  • Vitamin C rich foods such as kiwi fruit, citrus, broccoli,  capsicum and kale

  • Sulfur-rich foods, including garlic, onions, egg yolks and cruciferous vegetables

  • Antioxidant-rich herbs, spices and foods, including turmeric, rosemary, green tea, acai and goji berries

And of course collagen rich foods such as organic chicken, fish and grass-fed meat!
