A big part of aging is due to the break down of collagen. At the age of twenty five we start to lose collagen yearly. The beauty industry is flooded with products designed to stimulate collagen production.
Collagen is the most abundant protein in the human body and there are various types of collagen.
Type I : Bones, tendons, ligaments and skin;
Type II : Cartilages and structure of the eyes;
Type III : Liver, lungs and arteries;
Type IV : Kidneys and several internal organs;
Type V : Surface of cells, hair and placenta.
As we age this break down in collagen effects our bodies in a negative way. The quest to prevent this very thing has spurned a myriad of products.
Can we reap benefits from ingesting collagen?
After doing a little bit of research on NeoCell, it appears that there are indeed benefits to be reaped.
Founded fifteen years ago, award winning NeoCell is the first company to bring collagen supplements to the states. Prior to that time collagen supplementation had already gained recognition in Europe and Asia. Women in those continents had already determined a need to incorporate the intake of collagen in their daily routines. However, as was brought out, the benefits extend beyond beauty.

NeoCell categorizes their collagen in three different types, 1 and 3; which combines all types above, except type 2. Type two is ideal for joint health. NeoCell also did their homework in regard to synergistically comprising their supplements for optimal benefits.
NeoCell's collagen is mainly sourced from cows that are free of both hormones and antibiotics.
I'm intrigued to say the least, but, I'm a vegetarian that practices a vegan lifestyle most of the time. I would love to add NeoCell's collagen into my dietary routine, so I am hoping they come out with a vegetarian formula.
I did find a couple things that interested me on their website that were vegetarian and these include the Pomegranate From The Seed and the Resveratrol. Both are powerful antioxidants that provide numerous health benefits.
I like NeoCell, their high standards have resulted in a quality products that really deliver.
