FORTIFIED MEDICAL GRADE COLLAGEN
UNDERSTAND THE ROLE OF COLLAGEN IN THE BODY
Collagen is a type of protein. The building blocks of protein are amino acids. The word collagen derives from the Greek word kolla, meaning glue and collagen really is like an adhesive that holds many of the body’s tissues together. Skin, tendons, ligaments, bones, blood vessels and connective tissues are all made up of collagen. There are at least 28 different types of collagen. Types I, II and III form the bulk of the collagen in your body. Types I and III provide structure to the skin, muscles, and ligaments, while type II is found in cartilage and the eyes. The terms “collagen peptides “and “hydrolyzed collagen” are different names for the same thing: collagen broken down into a protein powder. Scientists have shown that typically around 1% of collagen is lost per year from our early 20’s. This loss typically results in:
DEHYDRATION AND THINNING OF THE SKIN, CAUSING FINE LINES & WRINKLES.
STIFF OR ACHING JOINTS
DULL OR THIN HAIR
ABNORMAL BLOOD PRESSURE
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN COLLAGEN IS CONSUMED?
Contrary to popular understanding, collagen does not remain in its complex original form and is broken down into its amino acid building blocks by digestion. To restore the complex triple-helix form again, additional ingredients are required. Sufficient Vitamin C, Zinc, Sulphur and Manganese are needed to rebuild the collagen structure. Without additional fortification of these vitamins and minerals, the collagen being ingested cannot fulfill its promise of collagen replenishment and the benefits associated with it. In our professional view, at the most basic level, when collagen peptides are consumed, they serve as building blocks for other proteins or collagen production. You cannot guide the collagen where to go in your body. As we ingest it, it goes into a pool of amino acids, and our bodies are intelligent enough to decide where it should go. For example, if a wound needs healing, then that healing is prioritized. If skin elasticity or joint health needs priority, then it is where it will go. This is why people experience different benefits from collagen supplementation. Our research has shown that 10+ grams of collagen is needed for sufficient collagen supplementation.

BEAUTY FROM WITHIN
“I was fortunate to be a part of the SA group trialling the newly released Defiance, which is science-backed and researched with pharmacologists and scientists. It’s a comprehensive fortified brand with a totally different approach to the current Collagen offering. It challenges the unsubstantiated claims made and gaps in existing collagens offered – this, in my medical opinion, is real “beauty from within” with visible and verifiable improved skin health, tone & texture and skin hydration. Its fortified formulation base has ingredients proven to enhance immunity, free radical protection, mobility, whilst reducing joint pain. Added benefits are improved energy, endurance and post exercise recovery. The formulation helps with a decrease of fat mass, promote ketosis and resultant weight loss. I am confident to share this with all our patients.”
