You may think I'm crazy - but when leading collagen company, NeoCell, reached out to me to try some of the company's products, I was interested to know more about collagen - and why we should take it - yet also a bit skeptical. When I think of collagen, I imagine some sort of crazy beauty cream that makes your face stiff like Botox. (Anyone else think this, too??)
Turns out, collagen is a protein that's naturally found almost everywhere in our bodies - and is a major part of our bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and much more. I also read that collagen helps reduce injury to ligaments and tendons, promotes joint health, and reduces body fat. Who knew?! Those benefits alone are very appealing to me since I work out every day and want to avoid injury.
If that alone isn't convincing enough, I came across an article on tips to boost your collagen intake and definitely have it bookmarked. Collagen must be important if we need to replenish it, right?
After all my research, I decided to try some products for myself. NeoCell graciously sent me Beauty Bursts Soft Chews and Collagen Capsules to try, as well as Biotin Bursts which are antioxidant chews with B vitamins that promotes hair and skin health.
It's been over a month since I've made NeoCell part of my vitamin routine and I can honestly say that these products will continue to be part of my daily lineup. My nails are stronger than ever and haven't been breaking as much, and my hair seems a lot less dry which is always a plus during winter.
My skin has responded to the collagen really well, too. I haven't had as many issues with breakouts and if any do happen, they disappear quickly. Something I've never noticed until now.
Also, let's be honest: if I'm taking a daily vitamin that requires chewing, it needs to taste good. I'm happy to report both kinds of chews I received pass my taste test. (The acai berry Biotin Bursts are my favorite!)
One more interesting note: the founder of NeoCell, after suffering a heart attack and going through triple-bypass surgery, began to research holistic therapies where he discovered the benefits of collagen. He started to take it himself and experienced so many benefits that he started NeoCell in 1998.
