Source of Collagen Matters
What is Bovine Collagen?
Bovine (that is beef, cow or bull) sourced cartilage contains bovine collagen which is a more similar collagen to human collagen, more so than chicken and marine sourced collagen. This is due to the fact that both humans and cows are mammals and share more cartilage traits in common.
This naturally occurring protein is found in the connective tissues, bones, cartilage and hides of cows, the same places you find it in people. There are 4 major amino acids in collagen, including human and bovine collagen. This includes:
These amino acids are some of the essential building blocks of collagen, which in turn helps to form the various different types of collagens. You can learn more about those types here. The shape and structure of the different collagens create advantageous attributes for tissues which helps play an important role in good health and body function.
Bovine collagen is one of the major sources of collagen in dietary supplements. Its similarity to human collagen also reduces the chance of an allergic response. On the other hand, marine collagen, particularly from shellfish, has a higher chance of causing an allergic reaction. Undenatured Bovine Collagen may also induce something called oral tolerance in the body and gut, lessening and calming the bodies negative immune response to foods.
Learning about collagen and its numerous attributes will give you the confidence to ask the right questions and make the right choices for you. We at SBEDGE® believe that Collagen Native Type 2 provides you with the right collagen solution for your health goals!
Bovine Collagen vs. Marine Collagen
Bovine collagen comes from cattle and marine collagen comes from fish. Each contain the same amino acid building blocks, but they also have varying ratios of the different types of collagens.
Marine collagens tend to have higher amounts of types 1 and 3 collagens, while bovine collagen has higher amounts of type 2 collagen, especially when sourced from bovine cartilage sources. Bovine hides provide a good source of types 1 and 3 Collagen, but these hides are often hydrolyzed.
Collagen Native Type 2 on the other hand, is sourced from bovine cartilage, making it have high amounts of type 2 collagen. You can read more about this in ‘Health Benefits’ below. Our gentle extraction process also prevents the destruction of the collagen molecule which can offer more health benefits to you.
Most collagens available are industrially pre-digested ‘hydrolyzed’ collagen ‘Peptides’ that have been broken down into less beneficial pieces. You can learn more here about “Collagen Native Type 2 Extracted from Bovine”.
SBEDGE® isolates our Collagen from USDA inspected bovine sources and controls the product until it arrives at your door, ensuring a quality end product.
The different types of collagens interact with your body in different ways. This is particularly true of Native or ‘undenatured’ collagen sources. Since Type 2 collagen helps to form the cartilage that make up your joints, it’s no wonder that this type of collagen is often known for supporting joint health.
