Recently Neocell contacted me and asked if I would be interested in reviewing any of their products. I hadn’t heard too much about them, so I did a little research. NeoCell Corporation is a nutritional supplement company focusing on health, beauty and anti-aging through support of vital collagen health. Collagen makes up about 25% of protein in the human body and is found abundantly throughout, including in our hair, skin, and nails. Since collagen levels naturally deplete as we age, it is crucial to supplement in order to maintain our youth.
The Neocell Laboratories – Beauty Bursts Gourmet Collagen Chews have won the following awards:
- 2013- “Best of Natural Beauty” Better Nutrition Magazine
- 2013- “Best Beauty Supplement” Delicious Living Magazine
The Beauty Bursts feature:
- Collagen Type 1 & 3 For Firm, Smooth Skin & Strong Hair & Nails
- Hyaluronic Acid For Skin Hydration & Renewal
- Vitamin C: Collagen Enhancer
- All Natural Formula Bursting With Flavor
I was pretty nervous about trying the Beauty Bursts, because I have tried “chews” in the past with health benefits and they tasted pretty gross. Much to my surprise they Beauty Bursts were decent tasting, they weren’t delicious, but they weren’t awful either.
They recommend 2-4 chews a day. I typically would eat one as I was getting ready for work, and then a second one later in the day, after work. I am about half way done with the bag of Neocell Beauty Bursts and haven’t really noticed any big difference in my skin, but I also had the flu the second week of trying these so that surely wasn’t helping anything. Also, I have only been taking two chews a day, and you can take up to 4.
I have noticed that my face is a little less dry, but it also hasn’t been as cold lately, so our heat isn’t turned up as high so I can’t honestly say whether it was the change in weather or the Beauty Bursts. My nails seem to have a little more shine to them and they are no longer peeling like usual. Working in printing my nails usually break as soon as they get any length to them because I am constantly reaching in boxes, and the press. Lately I have actually had to trim down my nails because they were getting too long for my taste. My nails do seem quite a bit stronger, and no longer bend easily!
Now my hair I have seen a definite difference in. The Keratin Hair Volumizer supplements are something I am glad I started taking. I use my flat iron daily – especially now that my hair is shorter. My hair has lots of layers in it, and for some reason in the back I get sections of hair that just lay weird and stick out funny so I use my flat iron to get them to lay smooth. I know all that heat is terrible for my hair, so I shower at night 90% of the time, and let my hair air dry so I am not using heat twice.
The heat styling also leaves my hair looking dull. Since I starte taking the Keratin supplements my hair has shine, even after heat styling, and no longer breaks easily. Previously every time I brushed my hair, hair would fall out in the sink and on the floor. Now I only notice hair coming out once in a while.
Dry, brittle,thinning hair is associated with a lack of nutrients that are essential to strong and resilient hair. Keratin Hair Volumizer contains clinically proven ingredients to enhance hair strength and reduce normal hair loss due to these key ingredients: Cynatine HNS Solubilized Keratin,Hydrolyzed Super Collagen, Amla Extract and Vitamin C.
Cynatine HNS Solubilized Keratin is both bioactive and bioavailable in the body, which allows it to bind with hair. Cynatine HNS® has been clinically proven to reduce hair loss from washing, improve hair strength and improve the brightness and luster of hair
Super Collagen™ is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which are the main constituents of collagen in the hair. Research suggests that collagen supplementation stimulates fibroblasts at the hair root, resulting in increased diameter of the hair shaft.
Amla, or Indian Gooseberry, has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic medicine for its anti-aging properties. Amla provides high concentrations of Vitamin C and and has been revered for being a powerful antioxidant. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is an important part of optimal collagen formation.
Overall I have been very pleased with Neocell Products! If you would like more information about these, or any of their other great products please visit their website: neocell.com
