In the name of beauty and natural anti-aging, the importance of collagen should not be underestimated. In fact, when it comes to maintaining the integrity of the skin and that coveted youthful glow, collagen is arguably key.
A naturally-produced protein, collagen is essentially responsible for structuring and holding together 80 percent of all connective tissue and 75 percent of skin. When we are younger, we produce enough collagen to meet these needs. As we grow older, however, the supply of collagen manufactured by our bodies naturally declines as part of the aging process, leading to wrinkles, sagging skin, lackluster hair, brittle nails, stiff joints, digestive issues, and more.
Thankfully, there are ways to support your collagen levels naturally, which in turn can have a highly anti-aging result. According to clinical nutritionist Sarah Newland, you can incorporate these easy but effective practices in both your diet and general lifestyle to help support collagen and keep you looking and feeling younger from the inside out.
1. Pay extra attention as you age
Women, who produce less collagen than men, lose it at a rate of about 1 percent each year from age 25 onwards. By the age of 50, women naturally will have lost almost half the elastin from their skin.
When it comes to aging and collagen production, it’s a seemingly double-edged sword.
“It’s a supply and demand thing!” says Newland. “As we age our collagen production slows down, while simultaneously our need for collagen increases.”
Sounds unfair, but that’s just the way our bodies naturally function and why it’s imperative to pay extra attention to looking after your collagen supply and stores. Doing so is key to an effective anti-aging protocol, according to Newland.
2. Include real food sources of collagen
“Our bodies lap up nutrients from real food sources first and foremost,” according to Newland, who recommends her clients consume bone broth regularly as part of their health regimen — and especially for its high elastin content.
Unfortunately for vegetarians and vegans, there isn’t a plant-based source that is comparable as an alternative.
“Collagen comes from the tissues it is found in, like ligaments, bones, bone marrow, and skin. Animal foods that contain these components, therefore, contain collagen that we use as the building blocks to create our own collagen,” Newland explains.
However, if you are not able to accommodate bone broth into your diet, Newland does have some tips for plant-based eaters. “Hydrate, ensure sufficient protein with each meal and snack, stay away from trans fats and unhealthy oils, and instead load up on plenty of essential fatty acids.”
3. Consume collagen-boosting vitamins
Vitamin C is the key nutrient required to help support collagen production naturally in the skin, so making sure your diet is rich in it is beneficial to supporting collagen.
“It helps the body increase precursors to collagen building blocks, and generally comes in high-antioxidant foods like densely colored vegetables, so it provides the additional support of fighting free radicals that lead to signs of aging,” says Newland, who suggests loading up on high vitamin C foods such as kiwi, berries, citrus, raw peppers, broccoli, and kale.
4. Add a quality supplement
Taking a pure collagen powder as a supplement is an easy way to provide your body with a dose of this anti-aging protein.
“I am a big fan of marine collagen supplements or bovine collagen powder,” says Newland. The benefit to marine clgn is its superior bio-availability, meaning it is more easily absorbed by the body, due to the smaller particle size of fish collagen peptides.
There are a variety of elastin powder supplements available on the market, which can usually be easily dissolved in water or added to your favorite juice or smoothie without any taste. Alternately, you can get it in capsules if you prefer to take it that way.
5. Don’t forget lifestyle factors
Make sure you look at the bigger picture, too, when it comes to looking after your collagen levels naturally. “Staying out of the sun, reducing toxic overload on your system, keeping hydrated, and having a diet high in richly pigmented fruits and vegetables — which are loaded with antioxidants that help scavenge free radicals and reduce inflammation and oxidation of cells, which can be detrimental to skin and joints — are practices that can have a really positive impact on our elastin levels and the way we age,” says Newland.

One of New Zealand’s leading cosmetics and ‘cosmeceuticals’ suppliers Pauling Industries Limited, has maintained a strong focus on organic health and beauty products. Established in 1990 by Paul Chan, it was the first New Zealand cosmetics manufacturer to accomplish organic certification for its range of skincare products through contract manufacturing.
Ever since then, the company has grown substantially and diversified its product lines. Pauling Industries now develops and manufactures products for a variety of clients’ brands, including health and beauty, organic food, supplements, and medical solutions.
“The company founder and current owners have always lived the organic lifestyle by default, so transitioning to organic certification was a natural progression”, says Nick Scown, Managing Director.
Given our company and our roots, we knew immediately that being certified organic was the only way forward, not only to distinguish us but also to add the trust, integrity, and honesty that our customers look for. We believe in living and breathing the organic lifestyle, from the food we eat to household products we use and beauty and skincare products we apply to our bodies.
Our interest in transparency was the main reason for our decision to become certified organic.
Pauling Industries has been a pioneer in developing in-house products, such as our own organic Lavender Hydrosol, which we use mainly in certified organic skincare products. Our interest in R&D has seen the company receive a FRST government grant to research natural extracts such as kiwifruit for use in health and beauty products.
Nick Scown: “Furthermore, we are the first and only company in Australasia to produce certified organic cleaning solutions for everyday household use – safe for the whole family”.
In the beauty and skincare industry, there are often dubious claims made regarding the source of ingredients, with terms such as ‘organic’, ‘natural’, ‘hypersensitive’, and others are thrown around, among many other claims such as ‘liquid cosmetics’.
In New Zealand, where we still lack organic labeling regulations, one can add a meager amount of organic ingredients and claim the product is organically sourced. Whilst this is technically truthful, we believe it is ethically misleading. That is why it is crucial that customers look for the BioGro organic certification mark – a guarantee that the product actually consists of organic ingredients.
“Early on, we identified that going organic and natural was critical for our continued growth and support in the marketplace, says Nick Scown. Teaming up with BioGro was an easy decision for us because we knew the organic market is a thriving industry. We are here to stay.
Pauling Industries exports to Australia, Singapore, Korea, the UK, Europe, and the USA. Since becoming certified organic, we have concentrated on growing our market share of the certified organic market. In any market, it takes a long time to get established, but the longevity of the products we’ve developed so far gives us confidence that we’re on the right track.
With BioGro’s trademark and team on board, the company is confident that its reputation will continue to grow.
