Our hydrolyzed bovine collagen peptides are 100% grass-fed in the United States and feature collagen types I & III. This form of collagen comprises about 80% of all collagen in the human body. Our bovine collagen peptides support a healthy gut, nails, and joints (including support for healthy ligaments and tendons).
Our sustainably sourced chicken collagen comes from non-GMO, U.S.-farmed chickens. This form of collagen comprises about 10% of all collagen in the human body. The collagen type II found in chicken bone supports a healthy gut and joint health.
Numerous studies show the value of supplemental collagen for supporting joint health and a healthy gut.
