Eat more protein


Protein provides for growth and consolidat­ion of a solid structure for the skin, and for features of the face and body, ensuring that these organs are compact, robust, have protection, are resilient and are elastic. Collagen, keratin and elastin are three key proteins that play a crucial role in establishi­ng and maintainin­g healthy-looking and well-functionin­g skin, eyes, hair, nails, lips and teeth. The building blocks of protein are amino acids, and there are 20 of them. Eight of these are considered ‘biological­ly essential’, meaning that our body can’t make them and we need to get them from food. We have to eat the right foods or the right combinatio­ns of foods to get these eight essential amino acids.
