NeoCell Super Collagen Supplement Review & Giveaway **Closed**

I have another great Dietary Supplement to tell you about today called Super Collagen made by NeoCell.  I hate to admit it but as I get older, I have noticed that my skin and my hair along with my nails,  seem to be as if I am looking at someone else and not me! How did this happen? Wow! I never expected it to crept up on me so darn fast!
This is what Super Collagen, Type 1 & 3 benefits are:
*Provides specific amino acids necessary to replenishing the body’s collagen supply
*Helps minimize fine lines & wrinkles
*Improves elasticity in the skin
*Builds and supports bone matrix
*Corrects weak, broken, split and damaged nail beds
*Thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss
*Repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity
*Improves circulation; promotes wound healing
*Glycine builds lean muscle to help burn fat while you sleep

Also, Super Collagen 1&3 is composed of nineteen amino acids and is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine, and hydroxyproline. Was that a mouthful or what?

Wow, this one supplement does all that? Well, that is what is on their site and I have to admit, just like I did with another product, I was in the middle of it, when my body shut down from the hypothyroid, RA and Fibromyalgia along with getting diagnosed with Acute Gastritis, so I had to halt all unnecessary medications until I can get well.

I did not want to drag this out too much and keep holding off on the review but the 2 weeks that I did get to use this Super Collagen, I could tell my hair responded well but with all the other benefits, I think I would have seen them if I had stayed on it. But, with everything going on at once, especially the RA flaring up and now I learned today that I have to go see my RA doctor because I think I have had some kind of reaction to the latest RA meds. This was the last one. I have gone thru them all, so I am in big trouble and I have no idea what to expect tomorrow.

So, with that being said, I thought I better not hold off on the supplements that I have and that I need to get a little something up and going. And what little bit I did get to use, I saw my hair behave a little better and I thought the skin on my hands didn't look so old looking but they are swollen from the RA so that kinda takes away some of that victory. But, since I see my hands all the time, I know there is a difference.

They did get a great award in 2012, look and see:

NeoCell Super Collagen Powder Named a Winner in Better Nutrition’s “Best of Supplements Awards”

Santa Ana, Calif. (Nov. 19, 2012) – The results of another November vote have been announced, and this one has nothing to do with politics, but everything to do with health and beauty.

2012 Best of Supplements Award Winner Better NutritionNeoCell Super Collagen Powder™ has been named a Best of Supplements Award Winner from Better Nutrition magazine.

The annual awards recognize the best of the best in the field of supplements. Only 50 products win the coveted award out of thousands of products available to consumers. The winners are chosen from the opinions of both an advisory board and Better Nutrition readers. The list of winners is in the November issue of Better Nutrition and available online.

So, it's got to be pretty darn good! I was really using it for the nails and skin more than anything else. I was hoping that my nails would get strength in them and stop breaking 2 or 3 times a day. That was my goal but with everything all out of whack, they want me on as little meds as possible, so maybe once I am cleared and ready to go, I will go back and give it another try.

On the jar, it says to take one scoop of the powder and mix with one spoonful of liquid (your choice) then add 6 or 8 ounces of that liquid together and shake until all residue is gone. They say it's better if you drink it at least 30 minutes before you eat.
And then here was the main objective of taking this supplement:

Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding Collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body's major systems.

Although abundant in our youth, the body's natural Collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per 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 tell- tale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis.  
Super Collagen+C™ utilizes Collagen Types 1&3, which is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.
I really wanted to work because of my RA issues and the hope that maybe it could help with the bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments in my body so that I wouldn't be in so much pain lately.  I guess I will have to wait to find that out but I haven't given up, especially if I go tomorrow and they tell me no more RA meds.  Unless they make some new ones sometime soon I guess I am gonna have to accept the fact that my swelling will never go down and my knees and ankles will always be swollen along with my fingers.

So, what I am hoping is that whoever wins this jar of Super Collagen that you will come back and let me know how it went and then if you have gotten good results and they say it's safe for me to go ahead and take supplements, then I want to try this again.

Here is how NeoCell got started:
NeoCell is the originator and industry authority on solutions that promote vital collagen health. We believe in the power of collagen, the body's structural protein, and its ability to heal and nourish, providing youth not only of the body, but also of the spirit.

Neocell started in 1998 by founder and fearless leader Al Quadri after an extraordinary personal experience. Al, a lifelong scientist and inventor, had just had major heart surgery and was having a difficult time recovering. His time spent in the hospital had atrophied his muscles, and his overall vitality was diminished. Al decided to incorporate collagen protein into his regimen after learning the integral role collagen plays in strengthening and rebuilding lost muscle mass and improving connective tissues.

Within just a few weeks, Al began to rapidly recover and regain his lost energy and vitality. Along with Al's recovery came a great inspiration to start a company in the hopes that others could be helped by collagen supplementation. His goal was to create products that allowed people to live younger, longer, and happier.  
And with that simple and unwavering conviction, NeoCell took root. As a small, research-grounded, family-owned business, NeoCell began with the idea of introducing the world to a premium quality, naturally-sourced, collagen based supplement line.
