HYDROLYZED TYPE 1 & 3 COLLAGEN | BOVINE POWDER
Collagen is an abundant protein in your body and likewise found in numerous animals. It serves as one of the major building blocks in skin, bones, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and blood vessels. Bovine collagen is a form of this protein that’s mainly derived from cows. To make it, cow bones or other cattle byproducts are boiled in water. After the collagen is extracted, it’s dried and powdered to form a supplement. Over 20 types of collagen exist in your body, each with a specific role. The main types are collagen I, II, III, and IV.
Collagen supplements provide different types depending on their source. Bovine collagen has been found to increase types I and III collagen. The collagen in your skin is primarily made up of types I and III collagen, meaning that bovine collagen may be especially useful for reducing wrinkles, promoting elasticity, and increasing skin moisture. As you age, your body’s collagen production naturally declines resulting in the breakdown of tissues we associate with getting older – wrinkled, sagging skin and weaker, painful joints. Bovine collagen may relieve symptoms of osteoarthritis, a common type of arthritis caused by the disintegration of the protective cartilage at the ends of your bones. It can lead to pain and stiffness in your hands, knees, and hips, among other body parts. In a 13-week study in 30 people with osteoarthritis affecting their knees, those given 5 grams of bovine collagen twice daily experienced improvements in symptoms.
Hydrolyzed collagen is collagen that has been broken down into smaller proteins, which are easier for your body to absorb.
