Are collagen peptides from a specific animal source better than the others?

Results showed that the tested collagen peptides underwent significant change during digestion and absorption. The average molecular weight decreased as the products were exposed to digestion enzymes and broken into smaller peptides. It was detected that the products of different animal sources become more similar when the average molecular weight drops along the digestion and the absorption process. As the differences between digested collagen peptides are minimal, the animal source you choose is a matter of preference.
