So we were at Costco again and they were giving away samples of this Super Collagen + C. What can you tell from a sample of any vitamin or supplement? They give you one day's supply and you're going to be able to figure out if it is beneficial to you?
I went down the aisle and found the full size bottle and started reading the label:
Repairs Ligaments & Tendons
Thickens Fine Hair (Oh, I need that!!)
Strengthens Nails (yup, I could use that too)
Promotes Healthy Skin (who wouldn't want that?)
Helps with Weight Control (ding, ding, that's a winner)
So 4 out of 5 of the above convinced me to give this a try, especially for my hair which has been thinning out as I get older. The instructions were to take three (3) tablets twice daily on an empty stomach and wait for 30 minutes before taking any other protein products.
The bottle contained 350 pills which would last me 2 months. Each 6 tablet serving is 22 calories, 6g collagen type 1 & 3, .03g sodium and 60mg vitamin C. It contains no sucros, starch, yeast, wheat, corn, cholesterol, fat or dairy products. The pills are 3/4" long and 1/2" wide, thought I would mention that since you do need to take 3 twice a day for those that might have a problem taking pills.
I have just started my second bottle and the main thing I have noticed so far is that my nails seem to grow faster and they don't seem to be as brittle. i wish I could tell you some good news about my hair but so far that is to be determined.
I am gong to give this a 6 month try and will report back at that time. Also, I did loose 8 lbs. without really watching my diet, that's only about a lb. a week but I'll take it!!
