Why is there such a craze for Collagen
? Dermatologists and Experts have recently touted this abundant Protein as studies continuously reveal promising potential. For customers, each wave of new products brings about better innovation and higher quality.
New to the game? It’s important to learn more about the different types of this incredible nutrient and how it can impact your self-care.
What is Collagen?
is the most abundant protein in the human body. It makes up roughly a third of all your protein supply. There are 28 different types of Collagen each with their own unique composition.
However, about 90% of the Collagen
in your body is Type 1. Types 1,3,5 & 10 make up a majority of all your Collagen and are what you should be focused on nutritionally.
Types of Collagen:
Collagen Type 1:
Collagen Type 1 is the most abundant type found in Collagen Fibers. It’s naturally occurring throughout your body and makes up 90% of your Collagen Protein. This versatile Collagen type works well in tandem with other sources.
Collagen Type 2:
Collagen Type 2 is found throughout your body but is less prevalent than Type 1. Chicken Sternum is the most abundant source of Collagen Type 2.
Collagen Type 3:
Collagen Type 3 is often mentioned along with Type 1. These two abundant proteins are naturally present in your skin and work together synergistically. Fish Collagen and Bovine are strong sources of Type 3.
Collagen Type 5:
Collagen Type 5 is fibrillar collagen. It’s often found in sources of Eggshell Membrane and is also associated with Type 1 Collagen.
Collagen Type 10:
Collagen Type 10 is a short-chain Collagen. This Collagen Type can also be found in Eggshell Membrane along with Bovine and other animal proteins.
