Neocell Super Collagen+C. Type 1&3. Radiant Skin, Thicker Hair, Stronger Nails, Healthier Joints. Anti-aging. Total Body Health. Collagen is a complex structural protein that maintains strength and flexibility throughout the body. Type 1 and 3 collagen make up 90% of the collagen found in our body, as found in our skin, hair, nails, muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones. Super Collagen+C is enzymatically hydrolysed, providing an amino acid ratio with a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailablilty and utilisation in the body. When Super Collagen+C is taken internally, the body receives the raw materials it needs to supplement the collagen found in all of these areas and may act as a messenger to trigger the synthesis of new collagen fibers. Typically people taking NeoCell will absorb 90% of the collagen taken. 6 capsules a day provide 6000mg of Type 1 & 3 collagen. If you are taking this for the first time, it is suggested you double the dosage for the first 6 to 12 weeks to make up for collagen deficiency and then maintain at the recommended dose of 6 capsules daily. 120 tablets

What is Collagen?
The word “collagen” is derived from the word ‘kolla’, the Greek word for glue. Collagen is the strong fibre that weaves throughout our body for strength and support to literally hold the body together. Daily, the body repeats a cycle of collagen breakdown and rebuilding.
As we age, the process changes and it’s 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.
Super Collagen™1&3 for skin, connective tissue and joint health.
Suggested use: As a dietary supplement, take three (3) tablets twice daily on an empty stomach for maximum absorption (wait 30 minutes before eating and especially protein).
Double dose for 6 – 12 weeks to make up for collagen deficiency, then maintain at recommended dose daily.
Take away from food – especially protein. If taken with protein the body doesn’t recognise it as collagen (½ hour before food and 2 hours after).
Do not take type I and 3 collagen at the same time as type 2 collagen – they have different amino acid profiles and if taken together the proteins bind and form a complete protein which means the body doesn’t recognise it as collagen anymore.
This is what Neocell have to tell us about their Super Collagen™1&3 products
Strengthen the skin matrix from within with Super Collagen™1&3
It is essential for strengthening the skin internally and preventing wrinkles and loss of elasticity.
Everyday, the body goes through a cycle of building and breaking down its natural supply of collagen. At age 25, the body begins breaking it down at a rate of 1.5% per year– faster than it can rebuild it. Super Collagen™1&3 is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline, which are the main constituents of collagen in the skin. It produces peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells in the skin to produce and reorganize new collagen fibers, which upon bundling builds the mechanical strength of the skin and strengthens the skin matrix.
Super Collagen™1&3 is enzymatically hydrolyzed, providing a collagen amino acid ratio with a low molecular weight for maximum bioavailability. Because Super Collagen™1&3 genetically parallels the amino acid structure of our own body’s collagen, persons taking it will experience a 90% absorption rate into the blood stream where cellular changes occur. Super Collagen™1&3 also supports healthy hair, nails, and connective tissues.
