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 fibers 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.
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 fibers which, upon bundling, can build the mechanical strength of the connective tissues and strengthen the extracellular matrix.
The Difference 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. Collagen Type 2 protein consists of eighteen amino acids, which amino acid profiles parallel the profile of the joint cartilage. Collagen Type 1 & 3 and Collagen Type 2 should not be combined due to the types having different amino acid profiles. If taken together, the two proteins will bind and form a complete protein and the body will not recognize it as collagen. It is recommended that if you want to take both sources of collagen protein, it should be done at least an hour apart.
Also known as "Nature's Moisturizer", Hyaluronic Acid controls tissue hydration and water transport in the body which helps support the appearance of smooth, supple skin. Young skin contains a large amount of hyaluronic acid (HA) molecules, the body's most water loving molecules. This helps the skin look smooth, elastic and healthy.
As we grow older, the ability of the skin to produce HA decreases and the amount of HA begins to fall. Since HA helps to bind water, the ability of the skin to retain water also declines with age. As a result, the skin becomes drier, thinner, and less able to restore itself. HA is essential for increasing moisture in skin and it works synergistically with Super Collagen 1&3 to improve the overall appearance of the skin by functioning as a lubricant in the skin's collagen matrix. HA is also beneficial for joint and eye lubrication and assists in cell turnover.
NeoCell is the originator and industry authority on solutions that promote vital collagen health. They believe in the power of collagen, the body's structural protein, and its ability to heal and nourish, providing youth not only of the body, but also of the spirit. NeoCell started in 1998 by founder and fearless leader Al Quadri after an extraordinary personal experience. Al, a lifelong scientist and inventor, had just had major heart surgery and was having a difficult time recovering. His time spent in the hospital had atrophied his muscles, and his overall vitality was diminished. Al decided to incorporate collagen protein into his regimen after learning the integral role collagen plays in strengthening and rebuilding lost muscle mass and improving connective tissues.
Within just a few weeks, Al began to rapidly recover and regain his lost energy and vitality. Along with Al's recovery came a great inspiration to start a company in the hopes that others could be helped by collagen supplementation. His goal was to create products that allowed people to live younger, longer, and happier. And with that simple and unwavering conviction, NeoCell took root. As a small, research-grounded, family-owned business, NeoCell began with the idea of introducing the world to a premium quality, naturally-sourced, collagen based supplement line. Today, NeoCell is the number one collagen brand in the world and a leader in the fields of nutritional science and methods development. With millions benefitting from their efforts, they continually work on enhancing their line of products based on the leading scientific body of knowledge and manufacturing processes. They produce products of the highest quality, integrity and efficacy so that people at all stages of life can live with confidence and vitality.
