Frequently Asked Questions Collagen Supplements
What Makes SBEDGE®’s Collagen Native Type 2 Different?
Collagen Native Type 2 (CNT2) is gently extracted and processed. It has not had its structure broken down but remains in its natural ‘undenatured’ state. Most collagens on the market are in ‘peptide’ form and have been broken down into smaller and less beneficial bits of protein through industrial chemical digestion. But not Collagen Native Type 2, it has more of the benefits that nature intended!
We also source our collagen from bovine sources which are the most similar to the natural collagen your body has.
What Is Collagen?
Collagen is one of the most abundant proteins in the human body that gives structure to many tissues. It is found in skin, hair, nails, joints, tendons, ligaments, bone, lungs, guts, blood vessels, almost everywhere in the body!
Why Do I Need Collagen?
As you age, collagen breaks down in your tissues faster than the body can replace it. In addition, the ability of the human body to produce its own collagen decreases with age. Supplementation with Collagen Native Type 2 provides the body with a source of collagen which the body can then use to repair these tissues. Supplementing with Collagen Native Type 2 can help restore and rebuild the collagen your body has lost.
There Are Many Types of Collagen; Why is Type 2 better?
Collagen types 1, 2 and 3 make up 80-90% of all the collagens in the human body with type 2 collagen being the major collagen found in cartilage, the connective tissue between the bones to form joints and protects the end of longer bones.
Our collagen is “native” or “undenatured”, indicating that it is the full protein or molecule that allows your body to process it naturally. Type 2 collagen can stimulate the body into building both type 2 and type 1 collagens.
Why Bovine Collagen?
Collagen Native Type 2 is sourced from Bovine(cow) cartilage because it is most similar to human collagen, more so than chicken and marine sourced collagen.
Will Taking Collagen Help With Joint Pain?
Collagen Native Type 2 is not a pain reliever. It will not dull or numb the pain associated with arthritis and joint pain. It will help to resupply your body with the type 2 collagen which the body can use to rebuild the cartilage tissues that are damaged and are causing the pain. Instead of treating the pain, we want to address the cause of the pain. Your body uses collagen to repair what is damaged and replenish the collagen levels in your body.
Can Collagen Native Type 2 Help With Inflammation?
Collagen Native Type 2 may help with inflammation by supplying your body with a source of collagen. Your body can then use this supply to aid in repairing the damaged tissue causing inflammation.
Where Is Your Collagen Made?
Our Collagen is sourced from North American USDA inspected bovine sources and is processed in the great state of Iowa in the United States. We are proud to be Made in America!
Can I Take Collagen Native Type 2 With Other Medications?

If you experience any adverse reaction after introducing Collagen Native Type 2 into your daily routine, cease taking the product immediately.
