As a vegetarian collagen supplements might go against your diet since collagen supplements are made from the bones and tendons of cows, pigs, chickens, and fish. But lucky for pescatarian there is marine collagen that they can get their hands on, which is made of fish bones. Live Strong recommends using Verisol.
