NeoCell's Resveratrol Supplement Sponsor Spotlight Review for Year of You Giveaway

I have another new exciting product to tell you about today called Resveratrol Antioxidant Supplements from a company that we all know and trust, NeoCell. What is Resveratrol?
French Vine Red Wine & Muscadine Grape Antioxidant
  • Helps prevent free radical damage to cells
  • Heps support the immune system and liver functions
  • A powerful antioxidant
  • Promotes heart health
As everyone knows, I have several illnesses that were so complicated I ended up on Disability, so when I find something that I think will help me fight these illnesses, I try them out because really, what do I have to lose? Can't get much worse than where I have been, that's for sure!
Because of the severe form of RA, the inflammation levels in my body are extremely high and I tried all the RA medications that are out there except for one and they all failed. One managed to last a little over a year and I got hopeful but then one day out of the blue, I had an allergic reaction and ever since, none of the others worked more than 4 to 6 months max.
I wanted heart protection because people with RA are twice as likely to have a heart attack than someone who doesn't which is why I have to see a heart doctor once a year or more if something is off. The other reason is that these RA medications lower your immune system so if I can find anything that helps me protect myself, I am going to try it!
Then lastly, I need to protect my liver. I am on a lot of medications and some of them do cause liver damage which is why I have to have my liver enzymes checked about every 3 to 4 months to make sure it is okay. So, I have a lot of incentive to try whatever I think will help.
Now, here is something I did not know until this week: Most company's that make Resveratrol use Japanese grapes! If you want the most powerful Resveratrol, then the grapes have to come from France! And they have to be Knotweed Free! Why?
Here's what NeoCell says about that subject:
Neocell Resveratrol Antioxidant uses only the finest red wine grapes, grape vine and seeds from the Bordeaux region in France. The addition of Muscadine grapes, French Grape Seed extract, and Pomegranate extract make these amazing fruits a unique blend containing natural and powerful antioxidants which contributes to a healthy lifestyle.  
The health benefits of Muscadine grape, red wine, red grapes, pomegranate and grape seed extracts have been known for many years. Now modern science and research reveals that regular consumption of these amazing fruits containing natural polyphenol nutrients contributes to a healthy lifestyle.

They have won several awards and here are two of them. Sorry it can out so small. On their site it was really big! But they won both of these in 2012 and for more info go to NeoCell's website!

All of NeoCell's products are Gluten Free and did you know that Resveratrol can also help with anti-aging? I think it's in the grapes and their extracts. Makes sense if you think about it. I have some skincare products that are made with Merlot Wine by products and those are from grapes. I know you know which company I am talking about. Even the products have a slightly grape looking color to them. But, man, do they feel like silk going on my face! Plus, we have all heard about grape seed being in facial scrubs.

Of course, they have a lot of other products that help with the anti-aging but we are only taking about this one today but did not want to leave you with the impression that this is the only supplement that can help with anti-aging.  To get a better idea of which products do what you need to go over to NeoCell's website and check them all out.

I haven't finished my bottle yet and I got a late start in taking them because I wasn't feeling too good a few weeks ago and it was all I could do to keep my food down so I only took my prescribed meds and left the rest off. Come to find out I was having an allergic reaction to the last RA medication I tried. So, now, I am done! Yes, there is one more left but it has potentially life threatening side effects that I have decided not to try it.

I go back to the RA doctor at the end of the month to give her my answer and it will be No because the side effect is too mind blowing to even consider for me, anyway. I have severe IBS and have really awful pain and have to take pain meds for that and the side effect that most scared me was it could cause abscesses in the colon and if I don't catch it in time, they will bust.

Well, with IBS I have so much pain, I won't know if the pain is IBS related or the infection in my colon. Unless I run a fever then at that point they said I better get to the hospital immediately or they would bust. Well, you know, I live in the mountains and to get to the hospital is a 40 minute drive. So, what if I wait too long and don't have enough time to go 40 minutes? I can't live like that. So, unless they come up with a newer medication that doesn't have that side effect, I guess I will not be taking anymore RA medications.

Actually, I haven't had any since April and yes, my hands, feet and other joints are swollen but I guess I will just have to live with that. So, now I begin my quest of finding supplements that will aid me as much as possible to keep me healthy as possible if I can. If anyone knows of something I should try, I am all ears. Just don't tell me to do really weird things because I won't do it.

I can't wait to prowl around NeoCell's site and see what else I can find to aid in my search to keep my body as healthy as possible.  In closing, I wanted to give you a little insight into NeoCell and what makes them tick and why so many of us trust in them to make the best supplements out there! And this award proves that they must be doing something right!

Sounds interesting. I'm a little leery about extra vitamins because I've had reactions to them. Although I'm fine with water soluble (like Vit. C and the B vits). I would try it if I had it.

That's quite the variety they have. I'm definitely interested in products with anti aging properties.

I love anything with Muscadine Grapes (Muscadine wine, mostly) but I'm up for anything that promotes heart health. My ticker isn't what it use to be. This sounds like an awesome product. I would definitely try it and if it helps my old ticker, I would have to buy it on a regular basis.
