Collagen is the most abundant form of protein in our body, providing us with strength, elasticity, tone and structure. It acts like the ‘glue’ that holds the body together. We require it for healthy skin, connective tissues, muscles and bones.
Collagen is a powerhouse protein, sourced from cows that has been proven to provide significant health benefits throughout the body. Our body heavily relies collagen in order to support joint health, skin health, and bone health. While the body may naturally produce collagen on its own, the formation of collagen can decrease by up to 50% as we age. An active lifestyle requires more collagen peptides to heal. Poor lifestyle choices that promote free radicals like smoking, chronic stress, and chemical exposure can also reduce our collagen production. It is vital to supplement collagen in order to avoid premature aging and health issues. Collagen Bovine offers numerous benefits including joint pain relief, stronger bone density, improved skin texture, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties, hydrated skin, reduced fine lines, and gut health support.
The most obvious difference is that marine collagen is made from fish skin and bones while bovine collagen is made from cow hides. Collagen Bovine is made up of types 1 and 3 collagen. These are the two most plentiful types of collagen present in our bodies and can be found throughout our connective tissues. This makes grass-fed collagen great for all-round body health and recovery from injuries.
Marine collagen is a source of type 1 collagen. Type 1 is the most plentiful collagen in our bodies. It’s also a key building block for maintaining the elasticity and firmness of our biggest organ: the skin.

Collagen Bovine is rich in amino acids to strengthen bones and joints. Replenishing this amino acid-rich protein can revitalize the health of tendons and ligaments. Studies suggest that collagen may be used to treat arthritis, osteoporosis, joint pain, hypertension, and other chronic health issues as it supports in the maintenance of bone health and joint health. Collagen peptides are extracted via enzymatic hydrolysis, which ensures the highest bioavailability, absorption, and utilization.
