- How to Use
UV rays, pollution and other environmental stresses expose our skin to damaging molecules called free radicals. Free radicals are unstable, reactive molecules which can damage skin cells. This damage, also known as oxidative stress, can accelerate collagen loss. As we age, our bodies become less effective at naturally neutralising free radicals, resulting in collagen deterioration.
GOLD COLLAGEN® DEFENCE tablets contribute to enhancing your skin's natural defences, supporting collagen protection from within.
Take GOLD COLLAGEN® DEFENCE to support your skin's natural defences. For adults, take one tablet daily with food or as directed by your doctor. Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
If taking GOLD COLLAGEN® liquid supplements, use GOLD COLLAGEN® DEFENCE between 30 or 90-day programs to maintain your newly formed collagen until you wish to take your next liquid supplement program of PURE, ACTIVE or FORTE.

I took these on holiday as I didn't want to take my bottles with me - kept me feeling vibrant and like my skin was happier in the sun. Also made me feel I was doing something healthy after drinking all day! Happy with how my skin looked when I was out there and when I got home.
Pros: healthy nails, healthy hair, younger looking skin, hydrated skin
Good alternative to the drinks
I tried the tablets when I paused with the liquids as this was recommended to me by one of the Gold Collagen sales reps and I was pleasantly surprised. My skin kept its glow throughout the month I was taking the Defence product and it felt plump too. I would definitely recommend as an alternative to the drinks as they are very affordable for a 30-day course.
