Why do you not have Type 2 Collagen?Updated 15 days ago

Great question! 👏

Our Pure Bovine Collagen comes from the hide of cattle which only contains Type I and Type 3 collagen. It's common to find this type of collagen in powder form to add to drinks or food. 

Type 2 Collagen from Bovine comes from tendons and we personally have tried this but the taste is so strong, that it would need to be in a capsule form rather than powder (in our opinion) - hence why we do not mix this with the collagen from the hide which is very neutral in flavour. 

For us to achieve all types of Collagen in one blend you would have to mix the different Collagen types such as Chicken Collagen (where Type II is predominately found), Tendon, and Bovine Collagen together, which at the moment would not be the best in terms of taste. 

It is something that could be done in a capsule and may well be something we look at in the future.

Our Bovine Collagen which is Type 1 and Type 3 helps with joint and bone health as well as muscle repair, nail, hair, and skin health please find more information on our website here. 

We hope that this helps do reach out to our customer support team if you have any further questions.  🙌
