I’ve often wondered about the efficacy of collagen supplements, and after road-testing one particular brand, I’ve come to the conclusion that it certainly complements a good skin regimen.

First off, how exactly does a collagen supplement work? This particular one, Neocell’s Marine Collagen is to be taken four times a day, and its listed benefits include, “promotes strong and healthy skin, increases skin elasticity, and encourages natural collagen synthesis. The capsules contain antioxidants to protect against free-radical damage while vitamins B6, B12, and C and copper work synergistically with marine collagen and hyaluronic acid for optimal skin and tissue renewal.”
After religiously taking the supplement for two weeks straight, the first thing I noticed was that my skin was suddenly so well hydrated. My skin is normally dry on the cheek area and forehead. In fact, there are times when those areas are so dry, they begin to flake. After taking this supplement though, my skin felt a lot more hydrated and less tight.

Another important thing to note is that unlike other collagen supplements in the market, this one comes with hyaluronic acid which is well-known for its unique ability to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and speed up wound healing. It can also help relieve joint pain in people with osteoarthritis. This is a great plus since it works synergistically with the collagen to effectively reduce signs of aging.

I’d most definitely recommend this product to those who are hoping to see more visible results in skin improvement and rejuvenation in a shorter amount of time.
