What are the differences between types of collagen

Collagen peptide

It is only necessary to supplement with collagen Type I, the dietary collagen peptides will stimulate the endogenous production of collagen type I, type II and type III in the body.

The body will recognize the unique Peptan collagen peptides and use these peptides as needed.

You may ask, what are the differences between collagen Types?

Collagen Type I

Collagen Type I is the same type as found in our skin, bones, ligaments, tendons and cartilage (Type I Fibro-cartilage).


General Health:
  • Stimulation of hyaluronic acid (GAG) synthesis
  • Stimulates endogenous production of collagen
  • Decreases collagen fragmentation SKIN Health
  • Source of Protein
Skin Health:
  • Improve skin moisture level
  • Improves smoothness of the skin
  • Reducing the number of micro furrows
  • Prevent the formation of deep-wrinkles
Bone Health:
  • Increase bone density
  • Improve bone flexibility
  • Reduces risk of fractures
Joint Health:
  • Decreases Joint pain
  • Improve joint flexibility
  • Improves mobility
Muscle Health:
  • Muscle Recovery
  • Tendon integrity
  • Ligament strength
Recovery and prevention
  • Injury recovery
  • Surgery recovery
  • Injury prevention

Where in the body do you find most Collagen Type I?

Typically, on dry-mass,

  • 75% of the skin,
  • 90% of organic bone,
  • 85% of Tendons,
  • 70% of Cartilage, (Type I Fibro-cartilage)
  • 70% of Ligaments

consists of collagen Type I.

Collagen Type II

Collagen Type II is mainly found in elastic cartilage and hyaline cartilage and is a weaker type of collagen. Hyaline cartilage is glass-like (hyaline) but translucent cartilage found on many joint surfaces.

It is also most commonly found in the ribs, nose, larynx, and trachea.

Type II collagen is the predominant collagenous component of cartilage.


Joint Health:
  • Decreases Joint pain
  • Improve joint flexibility
  • Improves mobility

Collagen Type III

Type III collagen is the second most abundant collagen type in the body after Type I, its contribution to the physiologic maintenance and repair of skeletal tissues remains poorly understood.
