We need collagen to maintain our youthful appearance of the skin. Collagen is a structural protein that we find in the skin, joints and connective tissue. Collagen is the most common protein in the human body, 35% of all proteins being represented by collagen.

Collagen is produced by some cells, called fibroblasts, which decrease with age. Collagen production can also be affected by an inadequate diet, stress, pollution, etc. Vitamin C is essential in collagen production. That’s why it’s recommended to include in diets, natural products and make a lot of movement.

Collagen can form rigid structures, like some types of bones, soft or elastic tissues, which enter the composition of cartilage and tendons. Collagen is the structuring part of the skin, hair and nails, ensuring their elasticity.

I propose a juice full of vitamin C,especially due to the guava fruit and green lemons. This juice stimulates the production of collagen and elasten, for a supple, young-looking skin.

Ingredients for magic juice: 1 guava fruit, 1 lime, without shell, 150 g pineapple, without shell, 150 ml of coconut milk, 1/2 of papaya fruit, without shell and without seeds, a pinch of grated nutmeg, a pinch of cinnamon.

Squeeze the guava fruit, green lemon and pineapple. Pour the juice into a blender, along with the remaining ingredients and stir until smooth. The juice is served with ice and is oroned with grated zest from the lemon.

Health benefits

Pineapple and papaya fruit are rich in enzymes that stimulate digestion and accelerate the removal of residues, so that the skin remains clean and fresh. Coconut milk has anti-inflammatory properties.

Guava fruit has antioxidant properties, being rich in potassium, beneficial to people with fluid retention problems. Guava fruit is also famous for improving male fertility. This fruit is rich in vitamin A and C,which helps protect the eyes, prevents hair loss,helping to increase it.
