First things first, let’s talk about collagen as a whole. Collagen is the body’s most abundant protein; it’s made up of amino acids glycine, proline, hydroxyproline and arginine.
While we’re able to create our own collagen, our body’s natural collagen production begins to decline around the age of 25. This is where Vital Proteins® comes in. We offer an array of different types of collagen, including our best-selling bovine-sourced Collagen Peptides. Follow a pescatarian-friendly diet? No worries! We also carry marine-based collagen powders to complement your lifestyle.
What’s the Difference Between Collagen and Marine Collagen?
There’s only one key difference between our Collagen Peptides and Marine Collagen. But first, let’s recap their similarities: they’re both powders that are easily soluble in liquids, are unflavoured and odourless, and boast the same types of collagen – more on that in a few! Is it any surprise they’re two of our all-time best sellers?
As for what sets them apart, it all boils down to sourcing. Our Collagen Peptides are sourced from grass-fed, pasture-raised bovine hide from Brazil, while our Marine Collagen is sourced from non-GMO, wild-caught white fish caught off the coast of Alaska. The latter is a favourite among those following a pescatarian-friendly diet.
