Question: What are some foods that increase collagen production?
Creams, supplements and injections aren’t the only way to boost collagen. You can also help increase production by eating foods rich in the amino acids threonine and proline. Threonine is essential for boosting collagen, but it can only be found in food, such as lentils, soybeans, asparagus, eggs, chicken, beef and pork. Unlike threonine, proline can be produced in the body, but you can still help add to your proline levels by eating soy, milk, cheese, beef and gelatin. Additionally, if you eat fruits, such as lemons and oranges, which contain high levels of vitamin C, you can also help boost your collagen levels.
