Glow-Getter Smoothie

Strengthen your hair, skin and nails with this fruit infused smoothie.  NeoCell's Super Collagen is 100% pure collagen protein that provides building materials for growth and maintenance of a healthy body.  
  • Collagen is the number one protein in your body!
  • Collagen is the "glue" that holds your body together, making up your bones, tendons, ligaments and giving skin its elasticity.
  • Collagen supplementation not only can increase the amount of collagen fibers, but new fibers are more organized and less prone to fraying--leading to a more youthful appearance.
  • Collagen supplementation has been shown to reduce joint pain caused by arthritis.
  • Typically, after age 25, we lose about 1.5% of collagen each year.
  • Collagen is absorbed best when consumed on an empty stomach (wait 30 minutes before eating).
  • Vitamin C plays an important role in the production of collagen.
  • The Vitamin C in the Vitamin Water improves the absorbency of the collagen.  A 20 oz. bottle contains 150% of your daily value.
  • Pineapple is also a fantastic source of Vitamin C.  It contains 105% of the daily value per 1 cup serving.  Pineapple also contains bromeliad, an enzyme that can reduce bloating and may help arthritis pain by easting inflammation.

1 scoop NeoCell Super Collagen powder
8 oz. Vitamin Water Zero Orange
1 cup frozen pineapple

Blend and serve.  The NeoCell brand can be purchased here from Vitamin Shoppe.
