CONCLUSION AT A GLANCE
Whether you like it or not, practically everyone looks in the mirror and sees the quality of the skin and makes a judgment about it, men almost as much as women. However, those who apply cream notice that it can sometimes support the skin, but that the aging process continues steadily.
Collagen creams don't work or are not helpful

A healthy diet and well-functioning intestines
Vegetarians and vegans will find it more difficult to maintain a high collagen content as collagen is extracted from the bones of animals. So you see that bone broth is becoming more and more popular among health gurus and fanatics. However, a vegetarian or a vegan is not interested in this. Below are also some tips that you as a vegetarian or vegan can apply to keep your skin as optimal as possible and with that all other additional benefits.
"The composition of collagen is considered unique due to the high content of hydroxyproline. If you miss the amino acids that make up collagen, your body cells cannot produce enough of it. Threonine is an essential amino acid for collagen production."
The most important basis is well-functioning intestines because you must also be able to digest and absorb all the healthy nutrients that you take in with food and drink before they enter the bloodstream and get where they are needed. A diet with less unhealthy fats, less grains and dairy, but more vegetables and fruit is a good start. In addition, you can purify the intestines even better and keep it healthy with 100% aloe vera juice, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar and lemon water. It is even recommended for people with certain chronic conditions and intestinal problems to completely cleanse the intestines with a supplement treatment such as Oxypowder, and in some cases an enema. The intestines also work much better when you have little or no stress in any form, this can be work stress but also panic attacks. Because of this stress, the body is ready to fight-freeze-flight and you can do this optimally if the body puts everything on standby that is not immediately useful for a situation such as fight or flight. For this all energy goes to the muscles. The additional disadvantages of stress are discussed below.
TIP 1. The Right Amino Acids
glycine, proline (hydroxyproline) L-arginine and L-threonine are all amino acids that promote collagen production, you could consider taking 1 or more of these amino acids as a supplement or taking a complete collagen supplement. The most common collagen variants are type-1, type-2 and type 3 of fish bones, beef bone and chicken bones.
The dangers of collagen products:
Unfortunately, there are many collagen products on the market that are not or not entirely organic. These collagen products include: chemical pesticides, pharmaceuticals, industrial chemicals, toxicological chemicals and food additives.
It is therefore wise to take a product that has a high standard price and reputation. If it is too good to be true then it is often too good to be true;).
TIP 2. Red Light Therapy also known as Photobiomodulation
Famous stars already use red light therapy, for example: Kim Kardashian, Chrisssy Teigen, and Jessica Alba. “Light therapy is a secret that Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen and Jessica Alba all know about. Kim K. uses red light to treat her psoriasis, Chrissy Teigen uses it for glowing skin, and Jessica Alba to reduce fine lines and wrinkles. ” [source]
And so have many athletes. This is because red light therapy has many scientific research below her belt that prove all the benefits described. In the overview “Learn More” you can read many of these studies, after which you will soon notice that collagen often returns. Collagen is an important factor in our body and red light therapy has a significant influence on the production of collagen in a positive sense.
Red Light therapy with LED or Laser ensures, among other things:
- Collagen production - stimulation
- Better blood flow
- Better skin, among other things, due to extra collagen
- Reduction of inflammation
- Faster muscle recovery
- More energy and ATP
Red Light Therapy is therefore perhaps the easiest biohack!
The use is easy, fast and relaxing and you do not need to swallow or adjust any diet.
TIP 3. Take more Vitamin C
Studies have shown that Vitamin C contributes to collagen production and skin protection. In technical terms, Vitamin C is therefore essential for collagen biosynthesis. [source]
In addition to collagen production, vitamin C is important for many more things in the body, so everyone is familiar with the term vitamin C. Being familiar with the term is not enough to reap the benefits of the potential that vitamin C has.
What else does Vitamin C do than Collagen Boost?
- Antioxidant - Prevents aging of the body
- Photo (light) protection - Protects the skin against harmful light such as excessive UV from the sun or tanning bed and bright white LED lighting in the house.
- Depigmentation - Vitamin C can reduce excessive pigmentation
- Anti-inflammatory - May reduce inflammation
- Immune system booster - Can help to expel viruses and bacteria from the body and is therefore a well-known solution against “a flu”
TIP 4. Drink Aloe Vera 100% Pure juice
Drinking Aloe Vera pure juice can almost double your collagen and hyaluronic acid. Aloe Vera juice contributes directly to the production of collagen and indirectly through the extra hyaluronic acid, which is also known as a collagen booster. [source]
In addition to improving collagen and hyaluronic acid, Aloe Vera is also healthy for better bowel function and can help you improve your bowel movements and in some cases help reduce chronic complaints. A Florida clinic used Aloe Vera for cancer cure with great success and low prices. In fact, this was so successful that the FDA closed the place because "doctors in the area lost work".
Below is a translation of the site Naturalnews [source]:
The aloe vera extract the clinics used was developed by Ivan Danhoff, MD, PhD, considered the Texas aloe vera authority. He went through the bureaucratic hoops to obtain IND (new investigational drug) status. and he went on to use the data from the clinics attended by Dr. Daniel Mayer and nutritionist Joseph Di Stefano. They had used his aloe extract on 100 cancer victims assigned to the hospice. Ninety-four of them survived without side effects from the hospice. treatments Overall, the recovery rate of the clinics was 80 percent.
Sadly, they closed before Dr. Danhoff was able to submit the results of the clinics. The FDA had responded to complaints from local oncologists losing business! Not a single patient complained. Those cancer victims were enthusiastic about responding positively to treatments costing $ 1200 for the duration of 25 to 40 treatments or until there was remission. Only one chemotherapy treatment costs the same or more!
During the raid, one of the patients complained, "We are all adults here with our free will. Why don't you get out of here and leave us alone?" An FDA agent replied, "This will be your last treatment!" That patient and several others were not receiving effective treatment because of business complaints from the cancer industry! "
TIP 5. Prevent or Avoid Harmful Light
Everyone is familiar with the term “sunbed skin”, which means that everyone knows that lying in the sunbed often has long-term disadvantages that are even clearly visible, despite a fine tan. What many people do not know, despite the many warnings on the news in recent years, is that the sun has the same UV radiation and can therefore also cause a tanning bed.

It's important to get regular sun exposure on a large area of your bare skin around you vitamin D content increase. However, staying in the sun to the point of combustion will take its toll. Your skin cells are constantly being renewed, but also destroyed. The environment makes matters worse: pollution and even dust particles can contribute to the rate at which your skin ages.
It is now also known that the bright white LED lighting that more and more people have in their homes and that the government is increasingly using as street lighting also has harmful effects on health. HERE you will find an article explaining this phenomenon in detail called 'Junk Light' and the link behind this sentence is an FDA document describing the known issues with blue / white LED light: [FDA document]
TIP 6. MSM - OptiMSM
In addition to all the other (this may be said :) very positive properties of MSM, MSM has sulfites which are necessary for the production of collagen.source] After treating many people with chronic conditions where the addition of MSM to the diet was highly recommended, the experience is that MSM is one of the most useful substances for promoting health.
It may be said, MSM tastes very, very bitter! So bitter that some people see the taste as the only reason for not wanting to take advantage of the benefits. That is why it is advisable to build up MSM from 1 teaspoon to 2 (up to 4 for extreme chronic conditions) in a glass of water with a squeezed lemon and / or apple cider vinegar. This is because sour and bitter cancel each other out. In addition, you can of course always quench the strong taste with pure water or a teaspoon of organic cold-whipped honey.
TIP 7. Reduce stress - Sleep better
Stress and lack of sleep can significantly reduce adrenal and thyroid function, leading to more skin-related problems. Both the adrenal glands and the thyroid are important for a good hormone balance. Some of these hormones such as progesterone and pregnenolone are also very important for the skin.
The nervous system of our body has been developed in such a way that under stress (think of the fight or flight system) all functions that are unnecessary at that moment are shut down. In this way all your energy goes to the functions that are important for functioning in stress. This means that the energy that was intended for digesting your meal is immediately reserved for your muscles at that moment. This way you can flee from the predator or fight.
The disadvantage of this beautiful system is that we are constantly exposed to stress in today's society. Some forms of stress are:
- Social pressure such as work + social obligations
- TV and Games - The amount of violence and hectic on TV
- 'Junk Light' - Bright blue / white LED light including your TV and Mobile
- Social (Media) Anxiety - Anxiety Disorder overtakes Depression as the No. 1 Mental Health Problem, making it 8x more common than all cancers combined
Finding your happiness in the things you do, and reducing conditions that cause stress, therefore not only ensures a better mind, but also a healthier body and healthier skin.
Adding foods with more vitamin C, Aloe Vera, sulfites, hyaluronic acid and various amino acids to your diet can increase your collagen. The great thing about this is that more collagen ensures better sleep and better sleep ensures better adrenal and thyroid function so that you can again produce more collagen. If you make sure that your telephone and TV screen are less bright and that your screen time is as little as possible, and that you have old-fashioned or at least warm lighting in your home, then the body will experience less stress, which means that you for the same reason as in the previous one. meaning again produces more collagen.
