Multi Collagen, Raw Greens & Real Whole Foods

Multi Collagen, Raw Greens & Real Whole Foods

We often hear about collagen but don't necessarily always know where it comes from. Collagen is an animal protein that often comes from food sources such as bovine, fish, chicken, or eggshell membranes. The collagen you usually find when buying a collagen supplement has specific hydrolyzed sources (but not always!). Hydrolyzed collagen generally means that a particular collagen type or source has been through a process that breaks down its long-chained amino acids into smaller proteins so it may be used by the body differently.

On the other hand, raw greens often refer to raw vegetables such as uncooked vegetables and other veggies but may also include fruits in their definition. Most of us are aware of the importance of consuming veggies and fruits in our nutritional regimen and trying to eat them as part of our meals. Today, many countries around the world would recommend trying to eat at least 5 fruits & veggies a day to support your health & wellness (the famous '5 a day' campaign).

In this article, we will discuss more about some of the different collagen types that exist, raw greens, fruits, other veggies, and our Codeage Multi Collagen Raw Greens which combines collagen, greens, and fruits in the same formula.

Collagen types

Collagen peptides can come in several different types including, but not limited to type I, II, III, V, and X collagen. A multi-type collagen supplement may offer a blend of several types while a single-type formula will only include one variety. Some formulas offer 1 type of collagen, others offer 2 types of collagen like our Collagen Peptides +, while others can offer 5 types of collagen all-in-one. Some people prefer to consume a collagen supplement with 2 types while others prefer 5 types of formulas.

Here is what each collagen type may contain:

  • Type I collagen: this type is commonly found in eggshells, fish roe, or chicken as well as bone broth. Collagen of type 1 may play a role in the skin as well as in bones, and joints support.*
  • Type II collagen: this type may be sourced from bovine hides or beef tendons. It may also be made by boiling down chicken or beef bones into a broth. Type II collagen may play a role in hair care and with joints.*
  • Type III collagen: this collagen type may contain different levels of amino acids that may play a role in our immune system.*

  • Type IV collagen: usually, found inside the human placenta, this type of collagen is not generally used in supplements but it may provide antioxidant properties.
  • Type V collagen: this type of collagen may be found in the liver and kidneys. It's known for its bioavailability and for its role in skin, joints and bones.
  • Type X collagen: Commonly derived from chicken, this type of protein may play a role in skin elasticity and moisturizing.

There are several foods we can eat that are rich in protein such as meat, chicken, seafood, or eggs. These food ingredients may offer the body a range of amino acids which it may then use to make collagen.

Real whole foods

When it comes to getting in your daily intake of fruits and vegetables, real whole foods can offer a lot of interesting nutrients. Real whole foods may be packed with vitamins and minerals, but they also contain fiber which can be used for digestion. Real whole foods may also be a source of antioxidants.

Some great real whole foods to eat include:

  • Fruits like blueberries, raspberries, and goji berries
  • Vegetables like broccoli, celery seed extract, and beetroot
  • Superfoods like spirulina, chlorella, and wheatgrass
  • Leafy greens like kale, spinach, and Swiss chard
  • Herbs like ginger and turmeric

Another advantage of eating real whole foods is that they may not only be good for your wellness but also tastes great! Some multivitamins may be made from real fruits and vegetables in order to feature some of the same nutrients that they have.

Fruits & veggies

We may all know that fruits are a good source of vitamins, but might not know which vitamins are found in which fruits. Here is a list of some common vitamins that might be found in fruits and their sources:

  • Vitamin A: apricots, cantaloupe, carrots, mangoes, nectarines, papayas, peaches, pink grapefruit, plums, prunes, watermelon
  • Vitamin C: bell peppers, blackberries, blueberries, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cauliflower, citrus fruits, cranberries, kale, kiwifruit, lemons, limes, oranges
  • Vitamin D: canned tuna, salmon, sardines, cod liver oil, fortified milk and cereals, mushrooms
  • Vitamin E: almonds, beets, broccoli, butternut squash, cantaloupes, mangoes, mustard greens, papayas, peas (cooked), spinach (cooked), sunflower seeds
  • Vitamin K: asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, dark leafy greens such as collard and turnip greens, kale, parsley
