Where do we get collagen from?

No doubt collagen is an essential supplement in our day to day! But have you asked yourself, where do we get collagen from? We will discuss it in this post. 

Now, when we hear "collagen" most of us know, it is a supplement that supports our health and performance, and that is correct!

But, raise your hand if you did not know that there is more than one type of coming from 4 different sources, and each type has its function. 

It is okay, you are not alone! Collagen comes from 4 different sources: Bovine, Marine, Eggshell, and Poultry. Here, we explain to you the functions of each source. 

Let’s start with:

  1. BOVINE collagen made from cows' support and improves the condition of our skin, hair, and nails. 
  2. Then there is MARINE collagen made from fish and helps with our joints and cartilage.
  3. We also have EGGSHELL collagen regulates the development of collagen fibers.
  4. Finally, POULTRY collagen made from chicken and supports tendons and ligaments.

Chloe Steele (MSc level Nutritionist) explains that collagen supplementation shows promising results for osteoporosis, sarcopenia, rheumatoid arthritis, tendinopathy, atopic dermatitis, and brittle nail syndrome. Collagen enhances our physical condition in combination with maintaining a healthy lifestyle. 

When looking for a collagen to include in your day to day, remember to choose a blend formulated with the 4 different sources. Our collagen blend has your back!
