The Difference Between Marine and Bovine Collagen 

The Difference Between Marine and Bovine Collagen 

Collagen is the glue that holds us together, our bodies natural ‘beauty protein’, it’s one of the most important proteins in the human body, but as we age our bodies produce less and less of it. Adding a little extra Mitchells Collagen to your diet is a simple and easy way to top up what your body is missing out on.

Collagen contributes to skin elasticity, hair and nail strength, gut health and joint support, helping us feel amazing inside and out. However, as we age we produce less and less of it, with collagen starting to naturally decline from the age of 25.

Let’s talk about the two different types of Mitchells Collagen, Bovine and Marine, and which one could be better for you....


BOVINE  

Bovine collagen is mainly type 1 and 3 collagen derived from cow hides. These are the most abundant types of collagen in the human body (type 1 being the most abundant), with collagen being a vital component of connective tissues!

Type 3 collagen plays a key role in the movement and strength of elastic tissues, including organs such as the heart, blood vessels, intestinal walls, and lungs. Both type 1 and 3 are amazing boss workers in the field of skin, tendon, coating on teeth, cartilage, ligaments and bone cell growth and repair (source).

MARINE 

Just like our popular Bovine Collagen Peptides, Marine Collagen Peptides is an easy way to top up the collagen your body is missing. 

Marine collagen is mainly type 1 collagen, derived from fish scales and skin (utilising a previous byproduct).

Type 1 collagen from marine sources are highly bioavailable (meaning it is extremely well absorbed and used by the body) with smaller peptide molecule size than Type 3, giving the body the support it needs to glow. 


BENEFITS

  • Amino acids that show your skin, hair, nails and joints some love
  • Skin skin skin - Our skin tissue is predominantly made up of Type 1 collagen fibres. Actually, 80% of the skin’s dermis layer collagen is Type 1, meaning it is super important for the integrity, hydration and elasticity of the skin, our biggest organ! (source)
