Call Me Collagen: Collagen Types & Sources Explained
Did you know that there are at least 16 different types of collagen within the human body? These 16 types provide different benefits and are found in different quantities in the body. To create our new supplement, Call Me Collagen, we selected the two most beneficial types and sources of collagen for maximum results. Keep reading for a detailed breakdown of exactly what will make Call Me Collagen your skin, hair, and nails’ new BFF.
Collagen Types --
Type 1: This is by far the most abundant, and strongest, type of collagen found in the human body. It’s made up of eosinophilic fibers that form parts of the body, including tendons, ligaments, organs and skin (dermis), which made it a must-have in Call Me Collagen. Type 1 collagen also helps form bones and can be found within the GI tract.
Type 3: The second type of collagen in Call Me Collagen, Type 3 collagen is made of reticular fibers and a major component of the extracellular matrix that makes up our organs and skin. It forms blood vessels and tissue within the heart. For these reasons, deficiency in type 3 collagen has been linked to a higher risk for ruptured blood vessels and even early death.
So where does collagen come from? Depending on the type, collagen can have a variety of sources. For Call Me Collagen, we took a look at all of the potential collagen sources and picked the cream of the crop. Here’s a bit about how these collagens differ and benefit us:
Collagen Sources --
Bovine collagen: Bovine Collagen comes from cows, specifically from their skin, bones, and muscles. It’s made of mostly types 1 and 3 collagen, which is a good fit considering these are the most abundant types created and found in the human body. Bovine collagen can be found in Call Me Collagen.
Collagen peptides, which can be found in Call Me Collagen, contain the same exact set of amino acids and nutrients as collagen, but have undergone a process called hydrolysis to break them down into shorter chains of proteins. Not only can hydrolyzed collagen be dissolved in both hot or cold water, but it’s also much easier for your stomach to break down and digest. It also has a high bioavailability and can be absorbed into the bloodstream more readily than regular collagen protein, giving you more bang for your buck when it comes to nutrition. Best of all, it boasts the same set of collagens peptides benefits as collagen protein, meaning it can help improve skin and hair, relieve joint pain and optimize the health of your gut.
From skin elasticity to joining health, collagen has a wide range of benefits. With the types and sources of collagen we selected for Call Me Collagen, we have you covered.
