Collagen for Gut, Skin and Joints
Did you know there are at least 16 different types of collagen within the human body? However, the vast majority of the collagen consists of types 1, 2, and 3. Why stop there? Experience health benefits for your gut, skin and joints with this broad spectrum collagen product with types 1, 2, 3, 5 and 10. The best type of collagen for you is a blend of all of these to adequately provide the nutritional “glue” for joint health, firm skin, and intestinal integrity.
Here’s an overview of the different types of collagen and their primary health benefits. Ancient Nutrition Multi Collagen food source collagen powder, developed by Dr. Axe, is a combination of the most important types. Let’s go over these, shall we?
Type 1/Type I:
This is by far the most abundant type of collagen found in the human body. It’s made up of eosinophilic fibers that form parts of the body, including tendons, ligaments, organs and skin (dermis). Type 1 collagen also helps form bones and can be found in the GI tract. It’s very important for wound healing, giving skin its stretchy and elastic quality, and holding together tissue so it doesn’t tear. After all, the word “collagen” means glue.
Type 2/Type II:
Type 2 collagen primarily helps build cartilage, which is found in connective tissues. The health of our joints relies on cartilage made of type 2 collagen, which is why it’s beneficial for supporting joint comfort.
Type 3/Type III:
Type 3 collagen is made of reticular fibers and a major component of the extracellular matrix that makes up our organs and skin. It’s usually found with type 1 and helps give skin its elasticity and firmness. It also forms blood vessels and tissue within the heart.
Type 4/Type IV:
Type 4 collagen has the important job of forming basal lamina, which is found in endothelial cells that form tissue that surrounds organs, muscles and fat. Basal lamina are needed for various nerve and blood vessel functions. They line the majority of our digestive organs and respiratory surfaces. Basal lamina can be found in the spaces between the top layer of skin/tissue and the deepest layer. They’re a thin layer of gel-like fluid that provides cushion/padding for the tissue above it.
Type 5/Type V:
This type of collagen is needed to make the surface of cells, as well as hair strands and tissue found in a woman’s placenta.
Type 10/Type X:
Type 10 helps with new bone formation and forming articular cartilage. It’s involved in the process of endochondral ossification, which is how bone tissue is created in embryonic mammals. It’s been found to be beneficial for the knitting of bones and repairing of synovial joints.
