Three weeks ago I recovered from an achilles tendon injury that was cause by running. I was running hills and training too hard and that resulted in my achilles tendon to suffer an injury. I had to get a shot in my achilles tendon and wear an ugly walking boot for three weeks to allow my tendon to heal. I was not able to walk much when the boot was on and when I did I was very slow, I think old ladies were passing me in the store with their walkers. I was glad to get the ugly boot off but I still had to take it easy and get back to my running gradually so I would not suffer another injury.
I wanted to get back to running fast so I could run races with my son again. I knew stretching my achilles tendon was good before I went running but I also discovered a product that was great to take after I ran. Neocell Collagen Sport Ultimate Recovery is a great protein powder that helps tissues and collagen repair and recover. When I go running, I am using connective tissues like my tendons and they need protein to help recover from the stress. Neocell Sport has all the amino acids in it to replenish my collagen in my achilles tendon.
I like to relax with coffee after running so I make a smoothie with the Neocell powder and my coffee. I get a delicious smoothie that helps my tendons stay healthy. I can them keep on running without the worry of another injury. That is a plus to me as I don't want to wear the ugly walking boot again.
Neocell Collagen Sport Ultimate Recovery can do so much more. It helps with my skin too by replenishing my collagen to help minimize those fine lines. It also is great for my hair and nails too, who knew that those had collagen too. This powder also improves circulation and promotes wound healing. The glycine in the powder builds lean muscle which helps my body burn more fat, that's a plus!
Collagen is the body's anti-aging protein and 90% of our collagen is in our skin, hair, nails, ligaments, tendons, bones, and muscles. Collagen is the glue that holds everything together and as we age it slows down in production and cause aging sings like wrinkles, brittle bones, and tendon injuries. So I guess my age also had something to do with my injury too.
Neocell Collagen Sport Ultimate Recovery is my supplement that will help me be able to run as I get older. I love that it is easy to mix into anything from milk, water, a smoothie, or even yogurt. This great tasting powder also has many other vitamins and minerals in it along with 30 grams of collagen building protein.
