What Are Collagen Peptides And Do They Actually Work?

By Renee Kruger May 25, 2021 0 comments

The Correxiko bovine collagen range for skin, hair, nails, joints, bones, and gut health are collagen peptides, which differ from the Correxiko marine collagen range in types of collagen ingredients only.


And what that essentially means is that Correxiko Marine Collagen is derived from wild-caught, deep-sea fish off the Canadian coast, while Correxiko Collagen Peptides are derived from grass-fed, pasture-raised cattle in Germany – unlike corn-fed cattle from other parts of the world.

What Are Collagen Peptides?

Collagen peptides are macromolecules, tiny bits of protein made up of animal collagen that have been used for decades to improve the condition of aging skin, dry or brittle hair, and joint pain (such as osteoarthritis). 


They are also used to manage the symptoms of osteoporosis, weak muscle strength, brittle nails, and other health conditions, although scientific research is lacking to back up the evidence collagen users can readily express.

What Are Collagen Peptides Used For?

A healthy diet includes foods from all of the basic food groups, as well as supplements that enhance and complement each other to bring you holistic health and wellness. 


However, some diets lack specific nutrients, simply because these are what are known as “limited ingredient” eating plans, and may or may not be based on cultural or religious beliefs, and medical statements or diagnoses.

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health recommends a balanced diet that includes fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy protein servings. On a limited ingredient diet, this balanced meal scorecard is just not possible.

Are Collagen Peptides Important In Your Diet?

Correxiko collagen peptides products are are a by-product of the food industry, and are ethically sourced from everyday high-protein animal foods, such as chicken, fish (like cod), and cattle bones and carcasses. These carcasses would otherwise be discarded during processing of these foods.


What you may not know about the bones and carcasses, however, is that these are actually higher in collagen and protein content than the foods we eat!


A meatatarian (as the word implies) eats meat on a regular basis, and a flexitarian eats meat sometimes. For both these lifestyles, Correxiko bovine collagen peptides would be best suited to your individual dietary needs.


As a pollotarian (a person who eats chicken and other poultry but not red meat or pork) or a pescatarian (who only eats fish, not other meats), you may choose to supplement your diet with marine collagen, without compromising your inherent beliefs.


The most important consideration when choosing or following an eating plan is its effect on your gut health.


For those consuming animal products, Correxiko’s premium-quality collagen range of products are beneficial to gut health, and contain 18 (more than your average amounts of) essential amino acids, including glycine and proline. These amino acids are considered beneficial to the intestinal tract, the stomach, and gut health overall.


For those on limited meat ingredients, high-fiber foods such as beans, greens, and whole grains could be beneficial to your gut health, too.
