Premium collagen Solutions for Sports Nutrition

For many athletes, nutritional supplements are an essential part of their daily routine. So Rousselot have developed a range of products that can help them improve their regimen and, ultimately, help them achieve their goals. 

Peptan® Collagen Peptides: a safe, bioactive ingredient for sport-lovers looking to shorten recovery time

Collagen peptides are fast becoming one of the most popular ingredients in the sports nutrition industry. This is due to an increasing number of clinical studies and reviews that demonstrate collagen peptides’ ability to support an active lifestyle. As a result, sports authorities such as the International Olympic Committee are endorsing collagen peptides. 

Peptan is a Type I collagen that boasts a unique amino acid profile. It contains high levels of glycine, hydroxyproline, proline, alanine and arginine, all of which provide specific nutritional benefits not found in other protein sources. So Peptan offers multiple benefits linked to muscles, athletic performance and connective tissue support. 

Together with Rousselot, Newcastle University (UK) recently carried out a clinical study that came up with some very interesting results. When compared with those who received a placebo, the subjects who were supplemented with Peptan experienced 20% less muscle soreness after intense exercise, compared with those who received a placebo. Moreover, their performance was maintained at 24 hrs post-exercise and increased at 48 hrs, while the performance of the placebo group progressively declined.

In other studies, collagen peptides have been shown to support connective tissues and significantly reduce the risk of sports related injuries.

Peptan has gained a reputation as the world’s leading collagen brand. It is preferred by numerous sports nutrition manufacturers which is why it can be found in many sports nutrition products around the world.
