No serious studies have shown that:
1-The mix of different types of collagen reduces their efficacy or benefits.
2-Type 1 and 3 must be taken separate from 2

However, different studies have found that:

Type I collagen is among the most abundant collagen found in the human body and forms collagen fibers.

Type III collagen frequently works in tandem with Type I collagen. Collagen Type I and III are the major components of skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, bones, gums, teeth, eyes and blood vessels. Together, Types I and III collagen constitute more than 90 percent of the collagen found in the body. 

Type II is a highly popular and researched collagen. It’s also a major component of joint cartilage. 

Type X is a protein generally associated with chondrocytes of avian. Collagen Type X is present in normal joint cartilage. 

Type V is one of the minor collagen components, forming interstitial collagen fibers (along with Type I collagen) and plays a significant role in regulating the development of collagen fibers of connective tissue. Type V collagen co-exists with Type II collagen in joint cartilage, while supporting healthy collagen fibers of Type II collagen.
