You know the old saying, "True beauty comes from the inside"? Well, this statement is true in more than one way. Of course a kind heart and loving personality make a person beautiful. Attitude is everything, and genuine kindness is one of the most attractive qualities a person can possess, and it's one that generally radiates from the inside out.
Another way to enhance physical beauty from the inside is to take one's cellular health into account. A healthy inside makes for a more radiant and beautiful outside. There are many wonderful supplements that can be taken to improve overall health and wellness, and many of these products can be found in nature. Things like Fish Collagen, Blueberries, and Pomegranates have amazing restorative properties that can help improve the elasticity of the skin, help slow hair loss, and even help promote the healing of wounds! And these are just a few of the many benefits that can be found in these natural substances!
The folks at Neocell have taken these wonderful ingredients and created a wonderful 3 Step anti-aging beauty regimen that addresses many common concerns that women have as they get older. Who is Neocell? They are a small, research grounded family owned business that had the goal of introducing to the world the anti-aging and overall health benefits of a naturally- sourced collagen based supplement line. All of Neocell’s health, wellness and anti-aging products are doctor-formulated and offer the highest quality and precise combination of ingredients to maximize health and wellness benefits for consumers of all ages. Neocell’s products are manufactured in their own GMP certified facility in California and guarantee the highest quality and safety manufacturing standards, meeting the needs of regulators world-wide.
Today, NeoCell is one of the top-selling brands in health food stores, and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. And while the company has grown considerably over the 13 years, one thing has never changed – their commitment to finding innovative and effective anti-aging nutraceutical supplements.
Recently the awesome folks at Neocell sent me their 3 Step Plan to try for myself. I was very excited to do so, since I am a huge fan of natural supplements. I have been using such products for the past few years, and I have definitely become a believer in naturally derived supplements. Not only do such products have amazing benefits, they are also much safer than synthetic pharmaceuticals. I like to know what I am putting into my body, so if a product label has nothing but a whole lot of huge, unpronounceable words and chemical names, chances are I won't be taking it. Neocell's products are natural, so I feel confident taking these products to promote wellness.
The Neocell 3 Step Plan includes 3 products that specifically target common areas of concern for women (and men) as we age: The skin, hair, and nails. Addressing these concerns from the inside is simply genius, if you ask me! Topical anti-aging creams only target the outermost layer of the skin. Neocell's 3 Step Plan attacks aging synergistically, building the foundation for plump, youthful skin from the inside out.
Here is what's included in the 3 Step Plan, and why it works:
STEP 1: STRENGTHEN
Strengthen the skin from within with a collagen supplement. Neocell's Collagen+C products help to strengthen the skin's matrix from the inside, which can help in preventing wrinkles and loss of the skin's elasticity. Other benefits of collagen are thickening of fine hair, slowing hair loss, and strengthening weak or brittle nails!
How it works:
Super Collagen + C™ Type 1 & 3: The word “collagen” is derived from the word kolla, the Greek word for glue. Collagen is the strong fiber that weaves throughout our body for strength and support to literally hold the body together, similar to glue, yet stronger than steel wire. Daily, the body repeats a cycle of collagen breakdown and rebuilding. As we age, the process changes and it is estimated that since the body slows down in the rebuilding phases, the body loses collagen at a rate of 1.5% per year from age 25 onwards. This collagen breakdown is what causes most visible signs of aging including wrinkles, sagging skin, joint pain, and brittle nails.
The collagen peptides type 1&3 in Super Collagen™ support collagen in tendons, ligaments, hair, skin, nails, and lean muscle. These two types of collagen are the main types found in connective tissue making up 90% of the body's total collagen content. Super Collagen™ is rich in hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, which are two key amino acids specific only to collagen and especially important to collagen production.
The benefits of supplementing with Super Collagen™ are twofold: the body is nourished with Collagen 1 & 3 where it is deficient and then Super Collagen™ acts as a messenger to trigger the synthesis of new collagen fibers. Super Collagen™ is derived from pharmaceutical food grade bovine collagen that is extracted from the dermal layer. Super Collagen™ is then enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing a collagen amino acid ration with a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability. Because Super Collagen genetically parallels the amino acid structure of our own body's collagen, persons taking Super Collagen will experience a 90% absorption rate into the blood stream where cellular changes occur.
STEP 2: HYDRATE
Hyaluronic Acid is one of nature's best moisturizers! It helps provide smooth, supple skin by controlling tissue hydration and water transport in the body. It has also been found to assist in the regulation of cell turnover in the skin. Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid is also a wonderful source of anti-oxidants and can help lessen the damage caused by free-radicals such as UV radiation. This powerhouse of a substance can also help with wound healing, scars, and even has analgesic properties that can aid in wrinkle reduction.
How it works:
Hyaluronic Acid (HA) is a protein generated naturally within our body and is more concentrated in areas that endure increased movement or have a higher fluid component such as the skin, eyes, ears, heart and joints. As aging progresses, production of this important moisturizing lubricant slows resulting in wrinkles, joint pain and other connective tissue complications.
Neocell's HA has a low-molecular weight source of hyaluronic acid for higher absorption and is one of the only hyaluronic acid supplements on the market today that is naturally sourced from rooster combs, which have been found to be more compatible in the human body rather than from a bacterial fermentation laboratory source. HA from synthetic sources has been found to cause edema (water retention) in some individuals and with natural HA this does not happen.
Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid™ with the added benefits of powerful antioxidants from pomegranate and green tea, is an all-natural dietary supplement that counteracts the effects of aging in a more effective way than topical HA application alone. By nourishing and moisturizing the skin and connective tissue from the inside, it is like creating a more youthful, healthy inner environment overall. With green tea in the mix, the health benefits include: anti-inflammatory effects, potential delay or prevention of cancer and neurodegenerative diseases as well as assistance in lowering LDL cholesterol, increased fat metabolism, and diabetes prevention. Made with organic agave nectar, this natural sweetener has a lower glycemic index. It also has blueberries and pomegranates which are loaded with vitamins, antioxidants, and other health supporting benefits.
In the body, collagen and HA are almost always found together. Collagen provides the mechanical strength of connective tissues and HA, with its ability to bind enormous amounts of water, serves to lubricate these same tissues providing needed hydration. With daily supplementation of collagen and Hyaluronic Acid Blueberry Liquid™, this is a powerful synergistic team for the lubrication of joints, protection of the retina in eyes, as an aide in prolonging smooth and youthful looking skin, and connective tissue health.
STEP 3: PROTECT
Protect the skin and body with anti-oxidants. Pomegranate from the seed is loaded with powerful anti-oxidants, which have so many benefits. Pomegranates are known to help protect and improve cardio-health, which is a HUGE plus for me. They are also known to help with the symptoms of menopause as well as having significant anti-aging properties! Who knew? I love pomegranates, but I never realized how beneficial these little seeds have!
How it works:
The centuries-old Pomegranate, once enjoyed as nothing more than a fruit, is now being hailed by researchers as having extraordinary antioxidant properties that protect the body from free radicals. Recent studies show a positive connection between the pomegranate, rich in polyphenols, and heart health. Pomegranate from the Seed is made from the juice that is extracted from the seeds, which contains the highest level of antioxidant capacity. Its potency is unique and daily consumption provides significantly dramatic results.
So far, I am loving the Neocell 3 Step Plan. I have been using it for a couple of weeks now and can definitely feel a difference, especially where hydration is concerned. I don't really have any wrinkles yet, but I do notice that my skin seems to be a bit plumper, brighter, and just generally more radiant. My horrid dark circles have even seemed to diminish a bit. I have also noticed that my hair is shedding less, and I am a HUGE shedder, and my nails seem to be growing more quickly than normal. I definitely attribute this to Neocell's 3 Step Plan. I am quite in tune with my body, so noticing these seemingly small changes was pretty easy for me. Another notable difference is that my energy level has seemed to increase, despite the fact that I have been suffering from PMS, which normally knocks me on my butt for a whole week and makes me very sleepy. (Not to mention irritable!) I have also noticed that the PMS-related bloating doesn't seem to be as severe. I'm not sure why this is or if it can even be related to the 3 Step Plan, but I thought it was worth mentioning anyway.
I would definitely recommend the Neocell 3 Step Plan to anyone who wants to improve their overall wellness. These products have so many benefits, including great anti-aging properties, protection from free-radicals, and powerful anti-oxidants. Even if you don't have many visible signs of aging, the 3 Step Plan is a great way to maintain a youthful appearance for as long as possible. These products are easy to use, (the blueberry liquid tastes great!) and will definitely produce results you can see AND feel. Plus, they're natural! So as you can see, the best way to enhance beauty is from the inside-out. Neocell can definitely help you do just that! I am definitely impressed with my results so far and I look forward to continuing the 3 Step Plan!
