NeoCell Collagen Sport Protein Powder Review and Giveaway
Posted Feb 09 2014 2:14pm
I use protein powder as a regular part of my training diet, taken after workouts. Muscles need protein for recovery and growth, and studies show the best time to take it in is 15-30 minutes after a workout. So when NeoCell asked me if I would be interested in reviewing their Collagen Sport Protein Mix – of course I said Yes!
I chose the Belgian Chocolate flavor because I like to add chocolate protein powders to recipes and yogurt for snacks. I loved that it wasn’t too sweet, and it didn’t have any gritty or chalky after taste. It mixed well in my recipes and in my shakes.
My knees had been feeling a little stiff lately, and I had noticed that at time they gave me a little pain when I performed squats. After a month of incorporating this product into my regular post workout diet, and sometimes in my breakfast shake, I did notice a difference in my knees. They didn’t “pop” as much when I did squats. Now, to be honest, I do want to add that I started doing a few knee strengthening exercises as well. So it may have been a combination of the two working together. But I’m going to suggest this product to my sister, who has knee problems as well – so we shall how it works for her.
