Beauty products don`t have to be just applied to the outside. Beauty also involves your insides. Besides drinking enough water and eating healthy foods you can add supplements. I recommend consulting your health care provider before starting any dietary supplements. All Neocell products in this post were sent to me free for review purposes.
My favourite out of the 3 products sent are the Super Fruit Punch flavoured Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Soft Chews. These contain no Gluten, Soy, Wheat, Lactose, Starch, Yeast, Articifial Flavours or Palm Oil. They do contain Hydrolyzed Collagen Type 1 & 3 Protein 5% L-Lysine (Bovine-skinéhides) 1000mg, Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) 10 mg, brown rice syrup, evaporated cane juice, fruit punch flavour, sunflower lecithin, sunflower oil, citric acid, DL-malic acid, black carrot juice, hibiscus extract, glycerin, citrus bioflavonoids, and hyaluronic acid. The recommended dose for Adults is 2 chews daily. Honestly, I only remember to take one each morning. The box does say you may have mild gastrointestinal disturbances and I would agree it does increase the chance of passing gas when you first begin taking these. 60 Soft Chews (a month`s worth) are in a box. I would purchase the Beauty Bursts again and give them a Positive BUZZ.
My least favourite is the Super Collagen Powder (7 oz.). I tried a scoop mixed with 8 oz of water, as directed and it tasted gross. The powder didn`t completely disolve either so that made for some chunky drinking. This powder is to be the source of the essential amino acid lysine which helps in collagen formation., development and maintenance of bones, connective tissue formation, and an antioxidant for maintenance of good health.
Each scoop contains hydroluzed collagen type 1 & 3 protein 5% L-Lysine (bovine-skin hides) 6600 mg. The powder does not contain soy, wheat, lactose, starch, yeast, or artificial flavours and is Gluten Free. I don`t recommend this powder due to the bad taste so this gets a BUZZ OFF rating.
Collagen Type 1 & 3 aid in collagen formation for radiant beauty, supports connective tissue, and the healthy development of bone. It`s a complex structural protein that supports skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and bones. I tend to forget to take supplements so I won`t be repurchasing the tablets but eventually I will use these up. For anyone who is good at remembering to take tablets, I give these a Positive BUZZ.
