Supplements are important in our life. Especially nowadays, when we live really fast and we are lack of time. We often forget to take care of ourselves. Balanced diet and sport activity are important to keep us healthy. However, it is good to support our immune system and health with good supplements. Please, remember that vitamins and other dietary supplements are not intended to be a food substitute! They cannot replace all of the nutrients and benefits of whole foods. It is always better to get your nutrients from REAL food.
Today I want to share with you, probably the best, collagen product available here, on American market. As I was lucky to receive NeoCell Collagen so I can use it now.
What is collagen?
Collagen is a protein, but no ordinary protein. Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body, and can be found in bones, skin, organs, muscles, eyes, nails, teeth, and hair. Best known for their ability to help connective tissue stay vibrant and flexible, collagen proteins serve two main functions in the body: structure and regeneration. Collagen is a protein found in the skin that gives it the appearance of fullness and smoothness.
Lack of collagen
Collagen makes up 25 percent of the whole amount of proteins in the body. As you age, collagen production decreases, causing the appearance of wrinkles, scarring and sagging skin.The group of collagen that’s related to the skin shows symptoms of wrinkles, sagging skin and skin that’s easily prone to scarring. When there is a deficiency of collagen in the muscles, you experience muscle pain and soreness. In addition, a collagen deficiency in the cartilage leads to joint pain.
Natural sources of collagen
- bone broth
- egg whites
- citrus fruits – they don’t contain glycine or proline, they do contain high amounts of vitamin C that our bodies need to produce collagen. Additionally, antioxidant properties of vitamin C prevent enzymes and free-radicals from breaking down collagen.
NeoCell Collagen is formulated to work with your body’s natural regenerative cycles*. By supplementing with NeoCell products, additional Collagen peptides are introduced into the extracellular fluid. The molecular receptors of the worker cells are “turned on” more frequently, thus continuing the regeneration cycle at a healthy rate, and rebuilding the Collagen matrix more quickly.
There are available few variations of collagen from NeoCell. I am currently using the most typical – pill version, which is enriched with extra Vitamin C that is an essential nutrient for Collagen formation in the body and also serves as an antioxidant.
But you can also get in and supply as a powder and simply drink it, or what makes it even better and fun, is the fact that you can add and mix powder collagen with other foods. It can be added to the pumpkin soup or for your morning toast/oatmeal. It doesn’t have a strong taste so you won’t spoil the taste of your meal, on the contrary, you will add extra value to it :).
Of course, I want convince you to consume foods rich in collagen as often as possible.
But I believe that it is not always possible, so it is good to supply it while we cannot derive it in natural way.
I have just started to use collagen from NeoCell. I would strongly recommend it to all athletes, women and elderly people who can suffer from the collagen deficiency. It is crucial for everyone to refill it.
