There are at least 28 different types of collagen protein in your body, but 90% of these are types I, II and III. Our bodies naturally produce collagen, but production declines with age and the visible and degenerative signs of ageing begin to appear. Preclinical studies show that ingesting collagen daily can offset this decline to restore youthful radiance, vitality and comfort.
MojoMe Collagen: MARINE is almost exclusively Type I collagen which is the primary component of healthy:
Organic Bone (90%)
Cartilage (70%) (Type I Fibro-cartilage and Type II elastic and hyaline cartilage)
Type I maintains dermal thickness, diminishes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improves skin elasticity, hydration and firmness while improving nail strength, hair growth and shine.
Marine collagen typically has more:
- Alanine: (increased immunity, improved metabolic function, the energy source for the central nervous system, muscle tissue and brain, decreased muscle fatigue, liver detoxification, protection against free-radicals and oxidative stress, improved cholesterol)
- Arginine: (improved blood pressure, cardiovascular, heart health and wound healing)
- Aspartic acid: (neurotransmitter)
Because Type I is the most abundant form of collagen protein in the body, marine is the fastest way to help restore youthful radiance within as little as 2 – 12 weeks. Marine is the traditional choice of the skincare industry because of its smaller molecule size, easier digestion and rapid absorption, making it a slam dunk for beauty gurus.
While marine collagen peptides don’t contain the minerals you’d typically associate with bone health, recent studies suggest that it may help support the absorption of calcium, phosphorus, and other minerals. Absorption was also associated with increased osteoblast activity, cells in the bone responsible for synthesising and mineralising bone.
Another bonus is that MojoMe Marine Collagen Hydrolysate is environmentally friendly; If you opt for marine, make sure the brand you choose lists its actual source. “Marine” is a blanket term used to describe collagen derived from any ocean source, including jellyfish, shellfish, crustaceans and even sharks?!
MojoMe Marine Collagen produced from 100% wild-caught white fish (cod, haddock and pollock) is harvested from the crystal-clear waters of the North-Atlantic using MSC Certified sustainable fishing practices. So, if you’re taking collagen to improve hair, skin and nail health, want fast results, ethical sourcing and a low carbon footprint MojoMe Collagen MARINE might be your perfect solution.
MojoMe Collagen BOVINE is a natural source of both types I and III.
Type I is the most prevalent structural protein in your body (hair, skin, nails, bones, corneas and teeth)
Type III is a gut health superfood and superhero for improved gut health and repair. Bovine contains more Type III, making it a better choice for those suffering from joint pain, sarcopenia (From 50 onwards, your body starts to lose 1% muscle mass per year) and gut-related health issues.
Bovine typically has more:
- Glycine: (potent anti-inflammatory, builds lean muscle, increased muscle strength, boosts energy, stabilises blood sugar, improves joint and bone health, improves sleep quality, accelerates recovery from exercise, illness and surgery)
- Hydroxyproline: (anti-ageing skin repair and hydration, increased collagen production, connective tissue repair and maintenance)
- Proline: (improves skin hydration, restores youthful radiance, improves wound healing)
Bovine is in plentiful supply and costs less to produce than marine. So, suppose you’re looking for a broad-spectrum anti-ageing dietary supplement that can also help reduce GI inflammation, improve gut health and are on a budget. In that case, MojoMe Collagen BOVINE might be your better choice.
MojoMe Collagen Marine and Bovine both deliver nearly the same premium health benefits without side effects. Both are great for improved skin health, hair, nails, gut, bone and connective tissue support.
Bovine collagen is a more cost-effective solution and might be the better choice if you suffer from muscle strength or gut-related health issues. Alternatively, marine might be a better choice if you have skin and hair concerns or want faster results from collagen or don’t consume beef products?
That’s the inside scoop on bovine v marine collagen. Now the choice is up to you!
