Promoting sports recovery with Peptan
Peptan provide multiple health benefits for those who are looking to sustain a healthy lifestyle with regular and intense physical activity. With a unique nutritional profile, Peptan collagen peptides contains high levels of amino acids glycine, hydroxyproline, proline, alanine and arginine. This single protein source provides multiple health benefits, which makes it an ideal ingredient for sports nutrition.
A recent randomized, controlled clinical trial published in the journal Amino Acids has shown that consuming Peptan collagen peptides can shorten sports recovery and relieve muscle soreness after exercise.[1] The study was conducted on 24 active young men who received a daily dose of 20g of Peptan before completing a series of exercises and showed that the supplementation of collagen peptides reduced muscle soreness by 20%, in comparison to those who received a placebo.

Peptan IIm: supporting healthy joints
Joints can be heavily affected by an intense physical activity, such as High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) or weight lifting, resulting in stiffer joints and slowing down athletic performance. At FIBO, Rousselot will also introduce its new hydrolyzed collagen type II matrix ingredient, Peptan IIm, made to support healthy joints at a daily low dosage of 1~3g and scientifically-backed by a recent set of in vivo studies[2]. A hydrolyzed collagen type II in a natural matrix form of bioactive hydrolyzed collagen type II and glycosaminoglycans (GAGs), Peptan IIm supports multiple joint health benefits by protecting cartilage, providing cushioning and lubrication as well as reducing the risk of joint inflammation.

Both ingredients, Peptan type I and Peptan IIm, are easy to use and can be integrated in various nutritional solutions, such as gummies, tablets, capsules, powder supplements and drink shots for maximum convenience.
