The debate between marine collagen and bovine collagen is one of those topics that has been hotly debated over the years, kind of like the debate between chocolate stored in the fridge or in the cupboard (p.s it’s definitely the cupboard). So if you’ve been wondering what the difference is between marine and bovine collagen, or which one is better, then this one is for you. Let’s dive into the most common questions when it comes to comparing marine and bovine collagen.
Is Marine or Bovine Collagen More Sustainable?
Our Marine Collagen is a premium upcycled collagen, sourced and extracted from the skins and scales of fish. Similarly, our Bovine Collagen is sourced and upcycled from Bovine cattle. Both Collagens are by-products of existing industries, making them both sustainable.
Not all collagens are sustainable on the market. Like anything in life, you have different providers that can create the same product with different levels of quality. We source our collagen from industry leaders due to their technology and scientific research. Our suppliers have been focusing on developing premium collagen peptides that have been hydrolysed to the size that is most effective on the body and their collagen is backed by extensive scientific research.
Is Marine Collagen or Bovine Collagen More Effective?
There are a lot of misconceptions about which source of collagen is more effective: bovine or marine. When it comes to functionality and benefits, Bovine and Marine Collagen are the same. However, both our marine and bovine bioactive collagen peptides are hydrolysed to the exact length that specifically regenerates collagen in skin, hair and nails. This is the process where collagen fibres are broken down into small peptide chains.
VERISOL® and NATICOL® have been shown to provide effective results within the areas it targets in just eight short weeks. This means that VERISOL® and NATICOL® collagen will have far more of an impact than any standard marine and bovine collagen.
Additionally, both our marine and bovine collagens have added wholefood vitamin C, zinc and silica to further help your body absorb the glowing benefits of collagen powder. Marine Collagen Beauty contains slightly different ingredients and also has added sea algae, (mekabu spore from Wakame) grown in Tasmania and contains a super magical compound called Fucoidan.
Which Collagen Should I Be Taking, Marine or Bovine?
This one comes totally down to preference and dietary requirements, just like the old chocolate in the fridge v the cupboard situation. For example, Marine Collagen Beauty is the best option for you if you are pescatarian. It also comes down to how you prefer to take your daily dose of collagen. Consistency is key when it comes to collagen, the best Nutra collagen is the one that seamlessly fits into your daily routines that already exist.
