What is PeptoPro®
PeptoPro® is a highly advanced peptide formulation derived from dairy protein. It contains all 20 amino acids needed for muscle protein synthesis. PeptoPro® delivers amino acids in the form of di-peptides and tri-peptides. These molecules are so small that they need no digestion and can be absorbed by the body rapidly and are designed for instant delivery to the muscle. PeptoPro® is virtually lactose- and fat-free. Due to its unique processing properties, PeptoPro® is instantly and completely soluble, even in cold water.
Efficient delivery of amino acids to the muscle is of particular importance during and directly after intense physical activity as the requirement of the muscle is the highest during those times. However, during intense excercise, the body’s digestive capacity is dramatically reduced due to limited blood flow (cardiac output) through the digestive organs. Because the amino acids from PeptoPro® can be absorbed without the need for digestion, instant delivery to the muscles is guaranteed, even when the digestive system is compromised. By contrast, intact protein or larger peptides need to be digested into smaller molecules first, and are therefore stuck in the digestive system for longer periods, compromising performance (figure)
PeptoPro® during exercise
Delivering amino acids quickly helps protect muscles during exercise and reduces muscle damage. PeptoPro® supplementation during endurance- and resistance-exercise has been shown to promote protein synthesis (anabolism) already during exercise (figure). When no amino acids are supplied, muscle tissue is degraded (catabolism). For instance, in the second hour of exercise, the body gets 5 – 15% of its energy from amino acids. If no amino acids are supplied during that time, the body will literally scavenge it from muscle tissue.
PeptoPro® after exercise
Efficient delivery of amino acids is very important right after exercise because there is a limited time frame, called the post-exercise “window of opportunity”, before the muscle cells’ capacity for nutrient absorption slows down. PeptoPro® kick-starts the recovery process by getting building blocks in before muscle cells ‘close the gates’. Nutrient timing is key.
The efficacy of PeptoPro® has been tested in multiple human studies and has shown to:
- Increase physical performance and endurance/stamina (time to fatigue)
- Promote protein synthesis during and after exercise
- Accelerate muscle recovery and reduce DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness)
- Increase post-exercise insulin secretion which results in faster levels of glucose uptake and glycogen resynthesis in muscle cells.
Clear & noticeable effects
In line with the results of scientific tests, a multitude of testimonials from satisfied consumers demonstrates the clear and noticeable effects of PeptoPro®. These include reduced muscle soreness and fatigue, faster recovery, increased endurance/stamina, more power and faster muscle growth. The clear and noticeable effect is a result of the efficient and instant delivery of amino acids during and directly after intense exercise.
