Product Review: NeoCell Collagen Sport Protein Powder

When I began increasing my training and workouts to improve my fitness levels and running, I was struggling to properly recover nutritionally after tough workouts. I would eat some foods with protein in them, but never really had a strong focus on recovery. The more I read about its importance, the more I tried to find what worked for me.
I have tried numerous protein bars, protein powders, you name it. Most have upset my stomach in some way, bloating, cramping, etc. I was very leery of trying any more protein supplements.  A friend, coach and fellow blogger suggested I try NeoCell Collagen Sport protein powder.  She as well was having digestive issues with most protein supplements, and found this one to be helpful. After hearing her rave about it, I thought, let’s give it a try, worst that could happen, I not like it.
I tried the French Vanilla flavor although it also comes in Belgian Chocolate. I wanted the milder flavor so that I could play around with my mixers. From day one, I was in love. The taste was mild and it blends very easily, no clumps or separation (also blends well if you aren’t near a blender). I would mix mine with an almond/coconut milk blend, berries or peaches and for a little extra protein, would throw in a tablespoon of almond butter (if needed). It was filling, yummy, and within the first week, I was noticing a difference in my muscle recovery times. With this product having a collagen component, I also noticed added benefits: my skin was looking and feeling better! And, living in Las Vegas, where the water and weather are not kind to your skin, this was great! Who doesn’t love bonus benefits??
For those that are gluten intolerant or choosing not to eat gluten, great news… this product is gluten free. Overall, a great source of protein (30 grams), branch chain amino acids and a vitamin blend as well. From their website:
