Thank you for the question and my apologies for the delay with my response.

There are a lot of food sources that contain collagen however your best option would be to consider collagen supplementation. If this is the route you take then the brand you choose should provide hydrolysed collagen and the concentration should be 10 000 mcg or higher per dose.

Alternatively food sources include meat, chicken, fish, bone broth, leafy greens, red peppers, legumes, and eggs to name a few.

I hope the above has helped.

Kind regards
