Why choose a multi collagen?
Type I Collagen: This is the protein that makes up our skin, bones, teeth, joints, ligaments, tendons, and scar tissue. Type I promotes the elasticity of the skin and minimizes skin lines and other features associated with old age. Aesthetics aside, this collagen also makes up the lining of your gastrointestinal tracts, so it’s a crucial protein from a gut health standpoint.
Type II Collagen: Well-known for helping build cartilage in our body and is crucial for joint support and health. May be a useful supplement for athletes with recurring joint injury.
Type III Collagen: Assists in the development of blood vessels, skin, connective tissues, lungs and tissue in the body's heart. Frequently works in tandem with Type I collagen.
Type V Collagen: Often found on the surface of cells, hair and for women; type V collagen has a significant role as the protein that contributes to the healthy development of the placenta. Making it pivotal for pregnant women.
Type X Collagen: Plays a key role in the creation of articular cartilage, which is found at the ends of bones that come together to form joints. Studies have shown that type X is needed for normal bone formation.
