First off, what is collagen? Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body and makes up a large part of our skin, hair and nails. If you wanna get all technical, it’s really a polypeptide that contains a mix of amino acids like glycine and proline which are found in all connective tissue within the body. Collagen is what gives your skin elasticity & your hair strength among many other things. Your body naturally produces collagen but as it ages, it declines. Stress, poor diet and stomach issues can also inhibit your body from making the proper amount of collagen. If your body isn’t making enough collagen, your skin will lose its youthful look and your hair & nails may become brittle.
Now you’re thinking to yourself, how do I get the right amount of collagen to help slow down the aging process!?!?! That is where I’ve got your back. For about the last 3 years, I have been religiously taking NeoCell Super Collagen+ C. It works by repairing connective tissues for improved elasticity in your skin. It also promotes improved circulation and a clearer complexion. The pills are a little horse-ish and you’ve gotta take 6 a day, but it’s really not bad once you get used to it. It’s been clinically tested and showed that 92% had increased skin hydration which is hard to come by!
Overall, I’ve seen a great improvement in the ‘plumpness’ of my skin, along with thicker eyebrow hair, which is totally random but I’m digging it. I also recently switched birth controls and the doc warned me that I may start to get acne again…. I haven’t gotten any and I can really attribute that to this product. (Knock on wood, I knocked on wood)
There are plenty of other supplements like this out there, but this one has worked great for me. I even had a fella ask me what he should do for thicker hair & I suggested this (I should ask him if it’s working). A boost in collagen can help you in so many ways, not just give you younger looking skin. If you have questions about the right collagen supplement for you, let us know and we’d be happy to look into great alternatives.
