What Are The Different Types of Collagen?

Collagen is a popular dietary ingredient, and there’s a lot more to this healthy protein than meets the eye. There are 16 types of collagen, with type I, II and III being the most common in supplements. As we age, we produce less collagen each year making it important to target supplementation. Here’s a breakdown of each type and the areas of health that benefit from types I, II, III, V and X collagen, which can be found in our Multi Collagen supplement.

Type I Collagen

Type I collagen accounts for 90% of your body’s collagen and provides structural support to skin, hair, nails, bones, tendons, cartilage, connective tissue, and teeth.

Type II Collagen

Type II collagen provides support and flexibility to bone joints and acts as the primary connective tissue. It’s also the main substance found in cartilage.

Type III Collagen

Type III collagen constitutes about 5–20% of the entire collagen content in the human body.1 It’s important for cardiovascular health as it can be found in part of the arterial walls, along with Type I collagen.

Type V Collagen

Type V collagen helps with neonatal development and is also helpful with eye health. It’s been suggested that type V collagen is required for the assembly of small fibrils in the cornea.2

Type X Collagen

Type X collagen is important for bone and joint health. It’s been found to be a reliable marker for new bone formation in articular cartilage, which is the smooth, white tissue that covers the ends of bones to come together to form joints.3

    I want to thank TriVita for all the God-added support for us to maintain, and regain so much our bodies are missing and lose as we age.
    By God Grace and Mercies I am aging GRACEFULLY. This yr I am age 62 and give all the Vitality and Youthfulness experienced in this body to my Heavenly Father, and all the great benefits all the supplements and knowledge received from TriVita down through the years.

    I learned of Trivita when my nephew was given a mental health diagnosis, he was 19/20age at that time, and I desperately wanted to help him and started purchasing B-12 He will be 40yrs this yr.

    Thank you, Father God and Trivita.
