Here's my Collagen supplement story (that I wrote for my FB friends who witnessed the pain I've been suffering, and for those of you who may be experiencing similar pain):

About a year ago I injured my elbow and although I tried multiple remedies, it only became more irritated and more painful. Keyboards and repetitive movement (almost everything I did) only made it worse. It simply would not heal. The pain got to the point that I could not pour a cup of tea without it feeling like coals of fire were searing my entire arm. I had to have others carry the groceries. Pouring from a gallon of milk was impossible without extra props and help. I went to the doctor, and after multiple consultations, the verdict was that it was part of life and "welcome to the club."

I was not thrilled with the idea of having to depend on the prescribed Tylenol and Ibuprofen for relief the rest of my life. So, I started researching and stumbled across some interesting reviews on Amazon regarding results people were seeing by taking collagen supplement.

While I've seen a lot about lotions, hair, and cosmetic products containing collagen, I've not heard a lot of talk or recommendations on taking it as a supplement.

Collagen "facts" I learned:
- 30% of all protein in the body is collagen.
- 70% of all collagen in the body is in connective tissue.
- it's essential for hair, nails, bones, joints, etc.
- it is used for help with building muscles.
- it aids with energy and endurance.

So, I figured I'd try it.

BTW -- Let me say that we eat very healthy: organic, top-quality food, balanced diet, and I take excellent vitamin supplements -- daily. No greasy, fast-foods, refined sugars, and processed foods or additives. So I was doing all diet stuff right.

In my research I saw there were variations of Collagen supplements, so I decided to start with 2 different types of powder (this one and the Dr. Bernd "grass-fed, cold processed" with amino acids) that I mixed into my morning vitamin health/shake drink (that I always took). I knew not to expect immediate results because joints and tendons are among the slowest in the body to heal.

However, about 6 weeks after I started taking collagen supplements, I noticed that my nails were growing strong and no longer wimpy and breaking. At first I didn't think much of it, but then I realized that the pain in my joints was ...umm... kinda not there any more. I waited for a while to see if it was a fluke or if was just my imagination. But seriously, it's been several weeks now, that I no longer experience that burning coal-fire pain. Last night when I went to bed I realized that I could not remember the last time I had taken an ibuprofen.

I love being able to pour my coffee, do my computer/keyboard stuff, and live life without the excruciating pain that had become a part of if over the last year.

I take the collagen supplement daily, but others in the family have seen great results with taking it only 3x a week. I think it depends on the body's need.

I'm not saying that collagen is a fix all magic (there is no such thing). However, if there's a deficit of a nutrient in the body, then it will scream for it. In my case, I believe the evidence points to the fact that I was needing collagen, and I believe there are many others out there who are in a similar situation. From what I've seen, it's worth trying.

PS: I was ready to post this when my 19-year old called and ask if I'd drop something off at her work. So, I decided to run drop it off before posting. (Ok, I jogged and walked part of the way too). When I got there, a 20-year old colleague of hers asked if I was her sister. That's the first time I've ever had that happen. I think I'm gonna keep taking this STUFF!

Since I've been taking Neocell collagen my skin keeps looking younger and my my body moves better. I am 58 and my skin has virtually no sag. People think I'm in my early forties! I also can run (5-13 miles), swim (75 laps) and bike (50 miles).

I have had painful arthritis for many years and have swollen and deformed joints. The pain has limited my activities seriously. I read up on it and decided to try it with tremendous results. Two of my daughters also have suffered sports injuries and low back and hip pain that makes sleeping difficult. For the three of us, this one product has made a dramatic difference. My joints are still deformed, but the swelling and redness is gone, and I am up to nearly normal function, as are my two daughters. I would recommend this product for this purpose.

I take this produce for my bones, hair, skin and nails! Everything in your body needs collagen. I think everyone over 30 should be taking it. I also take hyaluronic acid in capsule form to supplement it, along with vitamin C. You need the combination to get the full effect of collagen support. This is a good product. Only thing is, you have to take it on an empty stomach and wait 30 minutes to eat. This works best in the morning. Take it, and then prepare your breakfast. It should take 30 minutes to get that done. Don't waste the product by taking it any other way. And make sure you are taking the hyaluronic acid and the C as well.

Original Intention
While reading the reviews on this product, I wondered why no one was using it *on* the skin directly?
Well, let me tell you...it works amazingly mixed into a sugar and brown rice flour scrub. It helped DIMINISH my sister's cellulite and both of our fat deposits located above the elbow. (Even though the original intention was simply to put something great in my scrub...I'm not complaining!!)

How my skin feels afterwards
My skin feels absolutely amazingly soft,supple, and plump after using this. Good scrub after a trip to the sauna.I have also mixed it with my facial cleanser and water to make a super moisturizing face cleanser.

Should you try it?
I would recommend this to people who make body scrubs 100%. And, I'd bet this would be great in not only smoothies, but baked goods as well. The possibilities are endless when the collagen powder is this fine. For only $10, give it a try.
