Vitamin C and Collagen

Vitamin C and Collagen

Vitamin C and Collagen are the foundation of many health processes from skin, elasticity to wound healing, it can improve gut health and it can strengthen hair and nails which means the 2 go together very well.

Collagen fibres help in the recovery of wounds, it is great for our skin, it hydrates helping our skin to look plump, smooth, youthful and healthy but in order to synthesise collagen properly the body also needs Vitamin C. 

Collagen synthesis cannot happen without Vitamin C.

The Connection 

Vitamin C is a vital component in Collagen synthesis, so Vitamin C and Collagen are a powerful pair of nutrients that give healthy nourishment.

As we age that plus other factors, levels of collagen appear to reduce.

Ha ha we know what that means, the skin loses its elasticity and lines appear.

So why is it important to have both Vitamin C and Collagen in our diet?

Collagen is the main structural protein found in many parts of the body, skin and other connective tissues. It gives most of our cells the strength, form and elasticity needed. If you have a well balanced diet that gives you the raw ingredients you need, it helps make collagen naturally.

Check Your Diet

For your skin health, you should try to increase foods that are rich in Vitamin C, like citrus fruits. Some of the best for your skin are grapefruit and lemon. Even fruit such as raspberries contain a large amount of Vitamin C.

Below are only some foods to support you. We encourage you to also do your own research.

  • Chicken
  • Fish
  • Egg whites
  • Bone broth

Vegetarians and Vegans skip the first 4 and go to the ones below.

  • Berries 
  • Citrus fruits
  • Tropical fruits 
  • Garlic
  • Beans
  • Bell peppers 
  • Tomatoes 
  • Leafy greens 
  • Cashews

Sugar and refine carbs do not support collagen.

Collagen is also present in our skeletal system, plus it gives stretching strength to organs, tendons, muscles, ligaments, blood vessels. It is like a major building block that scaffolds whatever it’s a part of. The Collagen scaffold enables the cells to survive and restore harmony around wound healing so more specialised cells have the space to go about their work.

Vitamin C

This Vitamin cannot be overstated because we cannot make Vitamin C ourselves. Every trace of Vitamin C in our body right now was ingested via the food we eat or through the supplements we take.

Why chose C-pure to support your wellbeing if you’re choosing a Vitamin C.

It is high quality, pure, liquid, natural Liposomal Vitamin C that has only 3 ingredients.

25ml of C-pure daily gives you 2000mg of Vitamin C.

To get that strength from a sachet you’d need to take 2 sachets for the equivalent amount, which means C- pure is double the strength, making it economical too.  

There are many factors that come into play around our health, like diet, alcohol consumption, excessive, moderate or social, whether you are a smoker or not, even medication intake.

Everything you choose to do creates an outcome that affects your health, wellness. You can't just separate one thing and say ingest this or that and think it will fix everything. 

People are waking up where they are mindful of their body, their choices.
