Magic of Collagen Supplementation
Collagen is a long-chain amino acid and the most abundant protein in the body. It is composed of the individual amino acids Glycine, Proline, Hydroxyproline and Arginine and in nature is found exclusively in animal tissue, especially bones and connective tissue.

It is what is responsible for giving skin elasticity, hair its strength, and connective tissue its ability to hold everything in place. In fact, the collagen protein makes up 30% of the total protein in the body, and 70% of the protein in the skin.

The body’s natural collagen production declines with age and many modern lifestyle factors (like stress, poor diet, gut health imbalances, etc.) can also decrease the body’s ability to make it.

This is why supplementation is so necessary.

Listen as Tim Mount, National Educator for NeoCell, a premium anti-aging company that focuses high quality supplement formulas for skin care, joint and bone health, shares why you should be adding collagen supplements to your daily regimen.
