What is the right collagen for you?

Collagen is the major component of connective tissues and is responsible for many things in the body, including healthy joints and skin elasticity. It is found in bones, muscles, joints, tendons and blood vessel walls, comprising around three quarters of the skin and a third of the protein in the body.

Despite its importance in the body, and unfortunately for us, our natural collagen begins to degenerate and decline after the age of 25. Many people experience loss of lean muscle mass as the protein and collagen in our body declines due to ageing and lifestyle factors.

What is the right collagen for you?
The short answer: Yes! Let’s have a deeper look. There are 28 known types of collagen, but of these, most collagen supplements feature distinct five types. These comprise of Type I, II, III, V and X.

  • Type I Collagen is the most abundant protein found in the human body. It helps to form skin, bones, tendons, and other connective tissues. If you're looking for a collagen peptide powder for supporting skin health and beauty, or to support bone or muscular health, this type should be your top choice!
  • Type II is the major type of collagen found in cartilage, which protects the joints.
  • Type III is also a major component of our skin and organs. Similar to Type l, it is found in supplements made to support skin health. A lot of collagen supplements will contain both Types I and III combined, as both Types I and II comprise of 90% of the collagen found in the human body.
  • Type V is found in the connective tissue in the body. It plays a supporting role to Type II Collagen.
  • Type X is a “network forming” collagen, and is found in joint cartilage as well.

Even with this in mind, due to the large selection of collagen on the market, the choices may still feel a bit overwhelming. Luckily for you, Nutra Organics have developed a variety of collagen products, specifically tailored and blended with key supporting ingredients, to help best target the area where collagen supplementation is needed most.
