Bovine collagen is made up of types 1 and 3 collagen, the most abundant types of collagen in our own bodies 8.
Types 1 and 3 Collagen are the building blocks of skin, nails, hair, muscles, ligaments, tendons, bones, teeth, gums, eyes and blood vessels.
Bovine collagen is a potent source of amino acids, especially glycine and proline. These are essential for production of creatine, muscle-building and the body’s own collagen production 9.
Bovine collagen compounds have been shown to increase the development of osteoblasts and improve the function of osteoblasts in mineralisation of the bone matrix formation 10.
