All About Collagen Types


How to pick which Collagen you need?


Sourcing the highest-quality collagen is the key to using maximizing nutrient intake and building stronger hair, skin, nails, bones, and joints. We recommend looking for collagen products that come from grass-fed and grass-finished, pasture-raised (in the case of our Etre Grass-Fed Bovine Collagen) or wild-caught sustainable sources (for our Etre Wild Caught Marine Collagen). Luckily for you, all of our collagen products are of the highest quality and bio-available meaning easier and quicker to absorb into the body - getting better results.

For optimal health, the human body requires all three types of collagen, so it's important to use a variety of high-quality collagen sources regularly to ensure you're supporting your body as a whole.


Type 1 Collagen: 


Reduces fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin elasticity and hydration. Not only does it help rebuild your muscles, eyes, bones, and spine, it’s also good for strengthening your nails and helping you grow stronger, thicker hair. Type 1 collagen is most abundant in Marine Collagen.

  • Type 1 Collagen is great for rebuilding your muscles, eyes, bones, and spine, it’s famous for minimizing fine lines and wrinkles and improving skin elasticity and hydration. It’s also good for strengthening your nails and helping you grow stronger, thicker hair.


Type 2 Collagen: 


Makes up a majority of the protein molecules in your cartilage, the connective tissue that protects your bones at the joints, in your spinal disks, and your eyes, making it a potent way to support joint health. One of the best sources is Bone Broth.

  • Type 2 collagen may help with activity-related joint pain and inflammation, this is the collagen type known for helping with joint health.


Type 3 Collagen: 


Is found in large quantities in your intestines, muscles, blood vessels, and the uterus. It’s most often used with type I collagen for gut healing and to improve skin elasticity and hydration. Bovine Collagen Peptides is a great source of type 1 and 3 collagen.
