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, providing specific nutritional benefits not found in other protein sources. So Peptan® offers multiple benefits linked to muscles, athletic performance and connective tissue support.

Rousselotrecently carried out with Newcastle University (UK) a clinical study that supports Peptan’s efficacy in accelerating recovery and performance. 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 is easy to use, neutral in taste and odor and highly soluble. 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.

Manufacturer wishing to use Peptan in their end-products will benefit from Rousselot strong support and strategic co-branding program that will help them to market faster.  For more information, please visit
