Collagen is a protein that is abundantly found in your body. 

It is one of the major building blocks of your skin, bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Your body synthesizes collagen using certain nutrients such as vitamin C, proline, glycine and copper. 

Consuming high-quality protein that contains amino acids helps in the synthesis of collagen. Chicken, fish, eggs, citrus fruits, berries, cashews, garlic, legumes and tofu are a few food sources that are rich in these amino acids.
