I guess a lot of women feel the same way because there are surely a lot of articles about how to keep wrinkles away and here are some of the tips I've run across multiple times - moisturize daily, use retinol products, use sunscreen, don't smoke, do drink water, don't sleep on your face, eat whole foods, be happy. I think all of those are fairly obvious by now!
But one thing I don't hear much about is the fact that the glue that holds the face and body together is collagen and that it naturally depletes at the rate of 1.5% each year after the age of 25. "As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibers in the body become brittle and begin to break down, resulting in many of the signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis." So basically, you can employ all of the wrinkle-prevention tactics you please, but if your collagen levels are low, you won't get the results you want!
That is why I was so thrilled to get a chance to review and tell you about the wonderful products at NeoCell!. NeoCell was founded by Al Quadri, a lifelong scientist and inventor. At one point, he underwent major heart surgery and was having a difficult time recovering. He learned of the integral role collagen plays in the healing and regenerative process of tissue and muscle mass and decided to incorporate it in his healing process. He had amazing results and because of it, established NeoCell. Now NeoCell is the number one collagen brand in the world and has been developing and manufacturing all natural, premium anti-aging formulas for over 20 years.
I am using two of their products and both of them are outstanding -
- Helps prevent free radical damage to cells
- Helps support the immune system and liver functions
- A powerful antioxidant
- Promotes heart health
- Radiant and resilient skin
- Thicker hair and stronger nails
- Provides building blocks for collagen synthesis
- Healthy and strong ligaments and tendons
- Potent antioxidant
And here are some reviews I found on the IHerb site, Vitamin Shoppe, and Vitacost, where you can order NeoCell Products.
"I've noticed my nails are stronger and my hair is growing rapidly and I attribute it to the use of this Neocell liquid. The only drawback is I have to visit my hairdresser more frequently for touchups! It's worth it for me though!"
"I decided to try taking collagen to improve the appearance of my skin. I've had sensitive, acne-prone skin for years._____________
The directions say to take 3 tablets, 2x daily. I only take 3 a day, they last longer, and I noticed a huge difference within weeks. My skin was clear, smooth, and definitely more 'radiant' as it says on the bottle. I noticed a difference in the overall tone and texture of my face, (little to no redness, skin looked and felt tighter.) I received many compliments from family and friends who asked what I had done. I'd like to add that nothing changed in my routine, nor was I using any expensive skincare products. I've also had issues with breakouts on my shoulders and upper back, which cleared as well.
As soon as I stopped taking these, my skin would break out and revert back to a dull appearance."
"I don't know why the makers would suggest a total of six tablets in a day and I don't know what would possess someone to take six of these tablets in one day. I only used one tablet per day and after two weeks I saw a difference in my face. It was tighter and smoother. After a month my waist slimmed and tighten and I actually had a slight six pack. My thighs and buttocks also tighten and became more "muscular." I use this product for three months and stopped because I started a vitamin regimen that has amino acids. However, I shouldn't have never stopped using it so I am back to using the rest of the bottle with one pill a day. I didn't see any difference in hair, nails, teeth, tendons, etc... even though I do have joint and bone problems from a terrible accident a few years ago. But I DO know that this works perfectly for my skin and muscles. It appears that it tightens and flattens out fat and makes your body "muscular." I will use the rest of the bottle and order some more and take it a little longer to see if it will benefit other parts of my body."I know that nutrional supplements take time to see marked improvement, but I am already seeing some benefits after just one week! I feel like my skin immediately has improved and my weight has gone down by 3 lbs., which is great! I also have a 2 1/2 year old knee injury that wouldn't heal, and I feel like it is getting better! So I will definitely keep taking these supplements because I believe that beauty starts from the inside! And combined with the things I mentioned in the beginning, like getting lots of sleep (one that I particularly like), I just might have discovered the real fountain of youth after all!
