Peptan® collagen peptides are Type I Collagen Peptides. This means that they are identical to the collagen present in the bones and skin of the human body. Peptan® is a very pure, natural bioactive product, containing more than 90% protein (based on dry weight). Peptan® collagen peptides are available in three raw material origins (fish (F), beef (B) and porcine (P)).
Peptan® collagen peptides were optimised for fast bioavailability and activity, and their hydrolysed form ensures easy digestion in humans and excellent absorption. Peptan® collagen peptides are highly digestable and available as small peptides in the blood within 1 hour of ingestion. It is a bioactive ingredient specifically developed for its various health benefits and functional properties.
Peptans® unique amino acid composition
Peptan® contains 18 amino acids, the building blocks of our tissues and the main component of proteins. Glycine, proline and hydroxyproline represent about 50% of Peptans® total amino acid content; the glycine and proline concentration in Peptan® is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. Consequently, Peptan® offers health benefits that cannot be found in other protein sources.
Peptan® collagen peptides provide various health benefits and exhibit unique bioactive properties in the body. Investment in scientific research and clinical studies is necessary, and scientific studies are continuously conducted, including in vitro, in vivo and clinical research to further substantiate Peptans® health benefits and expand its potential applications.
Proven health benefits of Peptan®:
Protect joints: the efficacy of Peptan® to improve joint function and reduce discomfort is supported by scientific studies including in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials.
Bone strengthening: when administered as a supplement, collagen peptides can support the build and maintenance of healthy and strong bones, as demonstrated in multiple in vitro, in vivo and clinical trials. Peptan® is best combined with calcium and vitamin D to achieve optimal results.
Maintaining muscle mass: sarcopenia is the age-related loss of muscle mass and function. Exercise and adequate intake of easily digestible proteins is vital to counter the effects of this condition. As a bioactive protein, Peptan® can help maintain muscle mass in the elderly.
Healthy and beautiful skin: beautiful skin on the outside needs a healthy foundation on the inside and collagen peptides, can significantly improve skin quality. So-called 'Beauty from within' solutions such as nutri-cosmetics and nutritional supplements support the skin from within.
As a natural, non-allergenic and clean label ingredient, it can be easily and cost-efficiently incorporated into functional foods and beverages, nutri-cosmetics and dietary supplements without loss of taste and odour. It is an ideal ingredient for various formulations, such as protein-rich addition to drinks and nutrition bars, confectionery, dairy products.
