Note 2: I have written a post on some changes in my perspective that have happened to me in the last couple of days. This is some heavy stuff. I feel like I have found my passion back into my life and LIFE has approved and shown me that the decision I made was right for me! I have never felt so happy and confident about what I need to do before.. if you are interested to read about what I’m talking about, please click here to be directed to my photo blog.
Remember the lovely giveaway I did for a collagen infused protein powder by NeoCell? Well, after talking a little bit more with them about what else could fit my needs best, I was sent these two products from the NeoCell company. I told them about my bad joints and that I’ve been looking for some kind of a joint health product but wasn’t sure what to use. They recommended the Hyaluronic Acid in a blueberry liquid form. I have to admit I have never heard of hyaluronic acide before but then again I haven’t heard about many health products before, especially not those that deal with joint or anti-aging health. I can feel my joints being more bothersome and I’m only almost 23. Genetics can be drag sometimes, eh?
A little bit about hyaluronic acid.. Hyaluronic acid is a substance that is naturally present in the human body. It is found in the highest concentrations in fluids in the eyes and joints.There is also a lot of interest in using hyaluronic acid to prevent the effects of aging. In fact, hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth.” ( source )
Another source describes hyaluronic acid with a great comparison to a car engine, when it comes to its benefits to joint health: If we compare the joints of the human body to an automobile engine, the joint fluid in the body mimics the oil in a car engine. At regular intervals we replace the oil in our car engines because the heat and friction breakdowns the oils viscosity. The oil becomes thinner and less able to protect the metal surfaces from excessive wear. Hyaluronic acid benefits our joints in the same way. As we age the viscosity of the joint fluid lessens. HA helps to maintain normal joint cushioning.
I followed directions as written on the packaging and took the blueberry liquid by itself or with water after drinking some collagen.
The powder above is a Super Collagen product which is meant for radiant skin, thicker hair, stronger nails, and healthier joints. It’s a powder that you disssolve in water before breakfast and it has virtually no flavor. I ended up giving this one to my mom because she seemed really excited about it when I told her about it. I kept the hyaluronic acid for myself though.
edit: Why not add a giveaway so you guys can try it out yourself too? Good idea!
