Why is Marine Collagen Good for you and also Good for the Environment?

Much of the talk about collagen these days circles around Hydrolyzed Collagen Peptides derived from bovine – cows for us normal folk. Very few people know that there are other sources of collagen including avian (birds) and marine (fish) that can be used as a dietary supplement to achieve similar goals. Pure Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen is a popular product on the market, but often leaves consumers scratching their heads as to why they should choose marine over bovine?

It’s a very good question – simply put – Marine Collagen is mostly Type I collagen whereas bovine is more diverse consisting of Type I and III collagen. If you’re curious as to the differences in the types of collagen please view our blog – What are the Different Types of Collagen in Zammex’ Multi Collagen Protein. Both products have brilliant amino acid profiles, however pure Marine Collagen Peptide Powder is especially rich in hydroxyproline, proline and glycine. Hydroxyproline and proline work wonders to achieve healthier, more elastic skin while also providing other benefits such as tissue and tendon repair, wound healing and combating arteriosclerosis. Glycine is a wonder amino acid that has over a dozen health benefits that include boosting mental performance, protecting skin from aging, helps build lean muscle, improves digestion by supporting stomach lining, supports the immune system, fights fatigue and improves sleep. There are tons more, but it’s something you should not take lightly if you’re starting to add dietary supplements to your everyday regimen.

Ultimately, you’re getting very similar benefits and it’s impossible for us to predict the efficacy of one vs. the other on you because every person responds differently. So…. with that said, why would you choose Marine vs. Bovine collagen. It really comes down to dietary preference. Some people avoid beef products and if that’s you – pure Hydrolyzed Marine Collagen Peptides is your choice and Zammex’ is one of the best. There’s one other very important factor that may influence your decision. Marine Collagen Peptides Our Marine Collagen is wild-caught via sustainable harvesting methods.

This helps eliminate a ton of waste and has a positive effect on the environment.
