PeptoPro®

  • What is PeptoPro®?

    PeptoPro®, a protein hydrolysate, is a scientifically developed ingredient formulated to deliver protein split into smaller pieces called peptides. Peptides consist of amino acids which are bound together. Scientific evidence shows improvement in muscle recovery when consumed during and after exercise.

    In contrast to other protein products which have to be digested and broken down before entering the blood, PeptoPro® requires no digestion, so the amino acids contained in PeptoPro® enter the blood – and reach the muscles – much faster.

    PeptoPro® protein hydrolysate provides amino acid building blocks rapidly to the muscles which promotes faster muscle recovery. This increases endurance and overall performance, and helps to reduce muscle fatigue.

  • Why use PeptoPro®?

    • Improves muscle recovery after exercise.
    • Improves protein balance and muscle protein synthesis and reduces muscle fatigue.
    • Aids in the absorption of glucose for rapid glycogen repletion.
    • PeptoPro® is a unique protein hydrolysate containing all the essential amino acids in the correct ratio for human health.
    • Enhances continuous hard training.
    • Improves physical performance.

  • How is PeptoPro® different to PeptoSport®?

    PeptoPro® PeptoSport®
    Is a unique pre-digested protein also known as a protein hydrolysate, derived from milk protein or casein. PeptoPro® is made up of peptides, which when consumed are rapidly absorbed into the blood, with no digestion required. Is a sports drink with Carbohydrate and PeptoPro® (Protein Hydrolysate)
    Formulated to be added to a flavoured, carbohydrate-containing energy drink. It is NOT meant to be consumed with water only. Formulated to be added to water. More convenient, All-in-one, better tasting.
    For use during and after exercise. For use during and after exercise

  • How is Litely Fruity Flavoured PeptoPro® different to PeptoPro®?

    Peptides have a slightly bitter after taste however in Litely Fruity Flavoured PeptoPro®, the original PeptoPro® has a light, fruit flavour to mask the bitterness and improve the palatability when added to a flavoured sports drink.
    Litely Fruity Flavoured PeptoPro® is the original PeptoPro® with all its benefits but less bitterness.

  • Why is PeptoPro® different to regular protein?

    Some sport energy drinks may contain intact / whole protein (whey, soy, dairy products) which are not hydrolysed. These proteins typically has a negative effect on taste and refreshment, as it makes drinks sticky and “thick”, properties that makes drinks difficult to combine with exercise. They are commonly associated with gastro intestinal discomfort if taken during or straight after exercise. PeptoPro® is hydrolysed protein therefor it is soluble and requires no digestion, so the amino acids in PeptoPro® enter the blood and reach the muscles much faster just when they are needed most.

    PeptoPro® protein hydrolysate provides amino acid building blocks rapidly to the muscles which promotes faster muscle recovery. This increases endurance and overall performance, and helps to reduce muscle fatigue.

  • What are the benefits of using PeptoPro®?

    • Improves muscle recovery after exercise.
    • Aids in the absorption of glucose for rapid muscle glycogen repletion.
    • Improves protein balance and muscle protein synthesis and reduces muscle fatigue.
    • Improves physical performance.
    • Enhances continuous hard training.
    • Every batch of PeptoPro® is tested by Informed Sport (www.informed-sport.com) for WADA banned substances.

     

  • What is Informed Sport?

    PeptoPro® and PeptoSport®are the first sports supplements in South Africa to be registered with Informed Sport (a prohibited substance testing programme) in the UK, providing athletes, sports coaches and health professionals with increased assurance that they are safer for athletes to use.

    www.informed-sport.com is a banned substance screening programme designed to test supplements and their ingredients for inadvertent contamination with substances prohibited by WADA (the World Anti-Doping Agency).

    The Informed Sport programme was formed by LGC, a World Class doping control lab, with the support of sport’s governing bodies. The programme aims to help athletes choose supplement products that are made to the highest quality standards. www.lgcgroup.com

  • Who should use PeptoPro®?

    Any athlete that needs recovery of muscle proteins and glycogen stores. As each batch of PeptoPro® gets tested by Informed Sport (www.informed-sport.com) for WADA banned substances it can also be used by professional and high performance athletes.

  • How should PeptoPro® be used?

    PeptoPro® is mixed and consumed according to the athlete’s weight.
    PeptoPro® is mixed with the athlete’s favourite flavoured, carbohydrate-containing energy drink.
    It is NOT meant to be consumed with water only.
    Use during and after exercise.
    Best consumed chilled. Peptides are bitter by nature, adjust to taste.

  • When is the best time to use PeptoPro®?

    • If the exercise is longer than 60 min and high intensity PeptoPro® should be used during exercise as the glycogen stores usually is only adequate for 60-90 min of endurance and intermitted, high intensity exercise to maintain normal blood sugar levels.
    • During exercise it is advised to consume about 200ml of mixed PeptoPro® every 15 – 30 min. Ensure that the PeptoPro® was mixed correctly with an energy drink and according to the athlete’s weight!
    • PeptoPro® is also indicated to be used as a recovery drink directly after exercise, within the 30 minute open window period, for best recovery of glycogen and muscles.
    There is an “open window” period of about 30 min immediately after exercise that the body is at its peak to absorb protein and carbohydrate for optimal recovery of the glycogen stores. There for it is recommended that PeptoPro® added to a carbohydrate sports drink be taken within this time.

    After high intensity, endurance exercise muscle glycogen needs to be restored. PeptoPro® accelerates uptake of glucose in the muscle cells and improves muscle glycogen re-synthesis. Muscle glycogen will recover in about 16 hours if a protein hydrolysate and carbohydrate is taken in a combination. If carbohydrate is taken on its own it takes about 23 hours for glycogen to be restored.
