A few weeks ago I hit the salon for a cut and color and was totally floored when my stylist asked me what I was using on my hair, as she didn’t remember it being so thick. At first thought I had no idea what she was referring to. Immediately, my mind was picking through what shampoos or hair treatments I might have been reviewing the past couple months. Reality is, I haven’t reviewed any hair products, other than hair accessories or used anything new on my hair for a few months now. What I have been doing in early December was taking Neocell Keratin Hair Volumizer and before that a had given Neocell Hyaluronic Acid a review.
I mentioned to her that at the moment I was taking NeoCell Beauty Bursts Soft Chews and the Neocell Collagen Beauty Builder supplements a form of high quality Hydrolyzed Collagen. She proceeds to tell me she would never take collagen supplements. I really didn’t pay her much mind, as to each his own. But then the conversation gets a lot stranger. She proceeds to ask me what I use on my complexion that I don’t have any wrinkles. I had recently noticed some wrinkles around my eyes but hadn’t given them any thought at that time. Taking a look in the mirror as she says this, I notice I couldn’t really see those at the moment. I couldn’t remember her age and she refreshed my memory by telling me she was 39. At this point I am now looking at her in the mirror and comparing her to myself. She looks to be about ten years older than me with a lot of wrinkles and very thin hair. Or is it me that looks ten years younger than her. Well whatever! All I know, is I was very thankful at the moment to my mother for those great genes she passed on to me. I may look good for my age, but the reality is, my joints and other body parts are aging and deteriorating.
My first interest in NeoCell Collagen came when searching for a product that would help with my joints, nail beds and extremely dry hair. My fingernails have had ridges for years now. Lately, I have noticed how thin and easily they break, even my toe nails are brittle. After taking the NeoCell for a few weeks there are a few differences I took notice to. My toe nails are really thicker and stronger. The toenails on one foot have even been freakishly growing longer than the other. I cut them both the same day and can see them being slightly different, but this is strange. Although, I still have my ridges, my finger nails are thicker than they had been. My hair is also crazy thick, yet not as dry and frizzy. I also noticed I can barely get my regular elastic band wrapped twice when I make a pony tail. Overall, I feel I have a long way to go with taking the collagen and am looking forward to it.
I would highly recommend NeoCell to anyone looking to try it collagen. NeoCell Collagen is antibiotic and hormone free, is derived from grass feed and free range bovine hides, Free of GMO, gluten, wheat, soy, artificial ingredients and is kosher and completely made in the USA.
I had the NeoCell Beauty Bursts Soft Chews in the fresh mint chocolate. I am not to keen on mint with chocolate so I felt I really should have went with their fruit flavor. They are not bad, it just took a few days for me to get used to the taste. Each daily serving which consists of 2 soft chews is a total of 40 calories and contain 2,000 mg of Hydrolyzed Collagen 1 & 3. The NeoCell Collagen Beauty Builder come in an easy to take pill form and is molecular weight Hydrolyzed Collagen, contains 3,000 mg of Super Collagen 1 & 3. It is safe to take 5,000-6,000 mg of collagen a day, I was taking both at the same time. The most difficult part of taking the collagen was remembering to take it on an empty stomach.

Because it is both fat and water soluble, alpha lipoic acid is a superior anti-inflammatory nutrient.
