Beef Collagen VS Marine Collagen - Whats the difference?
Collagen has become the superfood buzzword in the wellness world. 100% pure collagen contains significantly more collagen than any protein blends or flavoured collagen.
Nutraviva Collagen products stand apart from the rest for their clean sourcing, high quality, and lack of artificial ingredients and fillers.
If you’ve been considering Nutraviva for a while, you may be asking what’s the difference between the Beef Collagen and the Marine Collagen. Both products are similar in their amino acid profile. They’re flavourless and odorless, and can be mixed easily into any beverage, warm or cool, added to yoghurt, used in baked goodies or stirred into soups as well. But what’s the difference between them?
Where does collagen come from? Bovine grass fed vs deep sea marine collagen
Collagen is a protein that’s found in the connective tissues. Humans create their own collagen naturally, as do other animals, which is why collagen is by default a non-vegan ingredient. Collagen can be found in our skin, bones, gut lining, joints, nails and hair.
The main difference between Nutraviva Grass Fed & Finished Collagen and Nutraviva Marine Collagen is sourcing. While Grass Fed Collagen is sourced from pasture-raised cattle from Brazil, the Marine Collagen is sourced from wild-caught, non-GMO verified red snapper scales from the Pacific Ocean around Australia.
Nutraviva Marine Collagen is pescatarian friendly. Nutritionally, the two products aren’t very much different — just derived from different sources.
Benefits of collagen
If you’re trying to decide between Marine Collagen and Bovine Collagen, you might naturally be wondering why you would want to take either of these products. Collagen protein, whether it’s derived from bovine or fish, is a fantastic way to support your connective tissues, skin, muscles, gut lining, ligaments, tendons, cartilage.
Hair and nails: Collagen is present in the cells that make up the hair and nails. Many people who take collagen report faster hair and nail growth, as well as increased hair and nail strength.
Skin: One of the main causes of fine lines and wrinkles is the natural loss of collagen from the skin. After age 25, our bodies begin to produce less and less collagen. Taking collagen orally can help to support the skin so it retains its youthful glow and elasticity.
Bones and joints: As we age, our bones also become susceptible to the side effects of collagen depletion. Brittle bones and suboptimal joint function are issues that affect many people over 50. That’s not to mention the problems faced by athletes of any age who rely on their bones and joints for extra physical support. Collagen promotes healthy bones and joints.
How much collagen to take
In the battle of Bovine Collagen vs Marine Collagen, the playing field is pretty much equal. Both sources of collagen are easily digested and absorbed by the body. In fact, in studies, 90% of collagen peptides have been shown to be digested and quickly absorbed after consumption.
We recommend taking 1-2 teaspoons of Nutraviva Collagen or Marine Collagen per serve twice a day at help benefit connective tissues on a daily basis.
