Collagen supplements vs. foods containing collagen

Posted May 19, 2020

Collagen is found in the connective tissues of animals. Thus, foods like chicken skin, pork skin, beef, and fish are sources of collagen. Foods that contain gelatin, such as bone broth, also provide collagen. 

More research is needed to determine whether eating collagen-rich foods helps increase collagen in your body. There have not been any human studies on whether collagen-rich foods have the same benefits as supplements.

Digestive enzymes break down the collagen in food into individual amino acids and peptides. However, the collagen in supplements has already been broken down, or hydrolyzed, which is why it’s thought to be absorbed more efficiently than the collagen in foods.

AiOra Bone + Joint capsules contain types 1, 2 and 3 collagen with multiple bioactives to support growth and assist with cell repair.
