PEPTIGEN+: The Five Types Of Collagen in the So Body Co. Mix  

Type I: The most common type in the body. One study found that a group of women taking a type 1 collagen for 60 days led to a noticeable reduction in skin dryness and wrinkles, plus a significant increase in collagen density and skin firmness was observed after 12 weeks
Type II: Predominantly used for cartilage, between bones to form joints. In 2008, Penn State University studied the effects of collagen supplements on athletes. A 24 week trial reported statistically significant changes to show improvement of joint pain
Type III: Usually found alongside type 1 and present in your muscles and organs type III provides better skin elasticity
Type V: This type helps the formation of cells, especially in your hair, gut and skin
Type X: Supports bone formation and healing as well as improving joint health

What is Collagen? 

Collagen is a protein that is a critical component of our skin, bones and joints. The most abundant protein in our bodies, it gives skin strength and its youthful firmness. Supporting the structure of the skin, collagen is the primary component of the body's connective tissue - about 80% of the dermis -- the part of your skin that's under the epidermis (upper layer). When levels deplete skin appears aged due to skin laxity – sagging, lined skin without the perky, smooth tautness most of us are longing to last forever!

The good news is that our bodies naturally produce this protein, but the sad and sobering news is that as we age, levels lessen and environmental factors, especially sun exposure, damage and break down healthy collagen. However, the menopause brings the most rapid onset of depletion of collagen due to hormone changes. With all these factors waging war on our skins natural youth elixir, the trend for harnessing ways to replenish levels is understandable. Collagen creams contain ingredients too large to penetrate the skin to reach the deeper dermis, but high quality digestible supplements are proven to be effective.

Proven in Clinical Studies 

Collagen works from within to promote optimal skin function by delivering essential micronutrients to the collagen matrix below the dermis. Clinical studies have shown collagen supplementation can increase skin’s hydration by up to 91%. Marine collagen benefits the skin by restoring skin’s youthful appearance, improving skin tone and texture, plumping the skin and smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles.

There are countless independent clinical studies that report and back up the benefits derived from collagen supplements. Some studies on collagen supplementation have shown significant improvements to the quality of hair and nails. Hair benefits include increasing hair regeneration, strength, shine and health. Likewise, studies also note the improved quality of weak, brittle or damaged nails in addition to strengthening the nail structure and encouraging growth.

100% Natural 

The pure powder formulation of Peptigen+ includes just four ingredients: Hydrolised (Marine) Fish Collagen Peptides; Hydrolised Bovine Collagen Peptides; Hydrolised Avian Collagen Peptides and Hydrolised Eggshell Collagen Peptides.

MO and dairy free. Independently lab tested to guarantee against impurities and heavy metals.

Slays Skin Ageing 

Scientists report collagen supplements can increase skin hydration, reduce fine lines and wrinkles.
One trial investigated the effects of an ingredient used in So Body Co’s collagen. Dr Jerome Asserin, PhD reported that clinical trials with the Peptan collagen ingredient resulted in "significantly increased skin hydration" and "improved hallmarks of skin aging.” Another study found that subjects taking a collagen peptide supplement saw a 20% reduction in wrinkles after 8 weeks.

Nails It 

When it comes to faster growing, stronger fingernails, the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology reported that a trial of oral collagen peptides resulted in a 12% increase in nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% in the frequency of broken nails.

Collagen. Your Crowning Glory 

Collagen is well known to bring benefits for your hair too. Although human clinical trials on the effects of collagen and hair are lacking, it is known that collagen is rich in the amino acid, proline. Proline is a key component of keratin, so consuming proline rich collagen is likely to give the body the building blocks it needs for hair growth.

Gives Pain the Push-Off 

A number of clinical studies have shown that collagen supplements may support pain relief for arthritis sufferers and help improve joint health. Research is ongoing and will likely continue for many years. In the meantime, early results are providing evidence of individuals reporting benefits from collagen supplementation.

One clinical study researched the effects of collagen in the treatment of osteoarthritis of the knee and concluded; “UC-II (Collagen) treated subjects showed significant enhancement in daily activities suggesting an improvement in their quality of life”

The Power of 5 

While most collagen products on the market today only deliver one or two ‘types’ of collagen, So Body Co’s PEPTIGEN+ multi-collagen supplement contains no less than FIVE different types of collagen. In fact it's the only British company to bring you the full spectrum benefits of collagen I-V to provide the greatest range of natural proteins. What’s more, as a pure collagen with no additives or artificial flavourings you get 10,000 mg of collagen per recommended daily serving. For those still taking the older single type collagen in tablet form, that's the equivalent of about 10 tablets!

There's an ever growing body of clinical research, scientific studies and anecdotal evidence illustrating the aesthetic benefits provided by collagen supplements. ‘Yes, Yes!’ we hear you cry, ‘but how long?!’

Here at So Body Co. we understand we’re a demanding lot and that the scientific benefits are all well and good, but know you want to know, ‘how long’, ‘when’ and what we might see from the results of sipping our So Body Co. Peptigen+ drinks. Below is some of the published research and reported timelines for results from taking a collagen supplement……


Facial skin is the first area you're likely to notice an improvement in. The Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology published evidence from different placebo-controlled clinical trials. One test investigated skin hydration (aging of the skin is associated with a decrease in water content). It found that collagen significantly increased skin moisture level by 16% after 4 weeks of treatment.

This increased to as much as 28% after 8 weeks. The journal also reported on a clinical study investigating collagen supplements with collagen fragmentation (wrinkles). This showed only minimal results in the first 4 weeks BUT major results (up to 31.2%) seen by week 12.

A double-blind placebo study found that women taking a collagen peptide saw a 20% reduction in wrinkles after 8 weeks.


Nutritional Reports International Scala J et al conducted a clinical trial whereby subjects took collagen for 62 days. The thickness and strength of their hair was measured at baseline, upon trial completion and after cessation of collagen treatment.

Thickness and strength of the hair increased significantly. The increase in thickness was greater for women than for men, possibly because the women’s hair was thinner at the onset of the study. After treatment stopped, hair thickness returned to its original level.


Recent findings published in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology reported that a 24 week trial of oral collagen peptides resulted in a 12% nail growth rate and a decrease of 42% in the frequency of broken nails. The majority of participants (80%) agreed that the use of the collagen peptides improved their nails' appearance.
