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. 250 tablets

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 (in the same mouthful)– 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 Collagen Type 1&3
The Benefits of Type 1&3 Collagen
Provides specific amino acids necessary to replenishing the body’s collagen supply, helps minimize fine lines & wrinkles, and improves elasticity in the skin builds and supports bone matrix, corrects weak, broken, split and damaged nail beds thickens fine hair, adds body and slows down hair loss repairs connective tissues for improved elasticity; improves circulation; promotes glycine builds lean muscle to help burn fat while you sleep.
Collagen: The Body's Anti-Aging Protein
Collagen supplementation is one of the most fundamental things a person can do to prevent premature aging and promote youthful vitality. Understanding collagen begins with knowing that it is truly the glue that holds the body together; it is the building block for all our body's major systems.
Although abundant in our youth, the body's natural collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25. As this collagen production slows, the collagen fibres in the body become brittle and begin to break down resulting in many of the tell-tale signs of aging, such as loose, flaccid skin, wrinkles, ligament and tendon injuries and osteoarthritis.
Super Collagen+C™ utilizes Collagen Types 1&3, which is 90% of the body’s total collagen supply and the main collagen constituents in the skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones and muscles.*
The Science of Collagen
Super Collagen™ 1&3 is composed of nineteen amino acids and is a rich source of glycine, proline, alanine and hydroxyproline.
Once taken orally, it can produce peptides that stimulate fibroblast cells to produce and reorganize new collagen fibres which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strength of the connective tissues and strengthen the extracellular matrix.*
Super Collagen's™ Advanced Bioavailability
Super Collagen+C™ uses an advanced enzymatic hydrolyzation process to break the large collagen molecules into low molecular-weight peptides that are both bioavailable and bioactive in the body. Super Collagen+C™ contains hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, two amino acids specific to Collagen. These are not regularly found in amino acid supplements and are especially important to collagen production.
Collagen+C™ genetically parallels the amino acid structure of the body's collagen and it's been shown that persons taking hydrolyzed Collagen Type 1&3 will experience 90% absorption into the blood stream where cellular changes occur. *
Available in 3 different, bioavailable delivery systems: Collagen powder, tablets and liquid.
Super Collagen+C™ tablets and Super Collagen+C™ Pomegranate Liquid are formulated with Vitamin C, which is absolutely essential to collagen formation.
Super Collagen™ powder is water-soluble, neutral tasting, and mixes easily with water or juice containing Vitamin C, or other Vitamin C supplements are highly recommended.
The Diference Between Collagen Type 1&3 and Collagen Type 2:
Scientific studies show that more than 90% of the collagen found in the body is Collagen Type 1&3. The protein composition consists of nineteen amino acids responsible for the growth and maintenance of the body with unusually high percentages of glycine, proline, and hydroxyproline, which are all found in the skin and muscle.
For maximum benefits Collagen Type 1&3 and Type 2 should not be combined at the same time.
Each type has different amino acid profiles and is produced by different cells in the body - Types 1&3 by fibroblasts and osteoblasts, Type 2 by chondrocytes.
Research has shown that combining Type 1 and Type 2 collagens may reduce the stimulatory effects at the cellular level. While combining the types is not dangerous, for a supplement to be as bioactive and effective as possible we recommend taking the different types of collagen separately throughout the day, giving each type the opportunity to stimulate the correct cells without interference by the incorrect type of collagen.
So when should I take my different Types of collagen?
Take Type 1&3 in the morning and Type 2 at night is a good option.
Super Collagen™ Type 1&3 derived from pharmaceutical food grade bovine collagen, Vitamin C as calcium ascorbate and may contain magnesium stearate (as an anti caking agent). Does not contain gluten, soy, wheat, lactose, starch, yeast or artificial flavours. Gluten free.

Keep out of reach of Children. Warning: May contain sulfite residues. 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.
