I thought animal products were bad for you. Is it okay for me to take bovine collagen every day?
Many people have this concern. This is a common misconception, especially around grass-fed sources. Grass-fed beef actually spend time on pasture and are treated more humanely than grain-fed cows. Happier cows produce healthier products. Bovine sources of collagen contain two types of collagen, type 1 and 3. Marine-based collagen only produces type 1. Types 1 and 3 are the most abundant in your body. Both types work together to strengthen and support your cartilage, bone, tendon, skin, and eyes. These are necessary to build healthy, resilient skin. The collagen peptides from bovine sources actually change the quality and quantity of skin tissue to combat aging.
