PeptoSport®

  • What is PeptoSport®?

    PeptoSport® is an unique scientifically formulated all-in-one sports drink with carbohydrate and added PeptoPro® (protein hydrolysate) to be added to water.

    PeptoSport® contains added carbohydrate in the form of maltodextrin (glucose polymer), fructose and sucrose, for rapid absorption and maximal glycogen recovery.

    The choice and ratio of these mixed carbohydrates in a drink have been scientifically proven and consistently found to have higher rates of oxidation, which indicates that they get to and enter the muscle more rapidly than single carbohydrate type drinks.

    PeptoSport® is also enhanced with PeptoPro® for instantly available peptides to build and repair muscle tissue, and to help reduce muscle fatigue.

    PeptoPro®, a protein hydrolysate, is a new 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.

  • Why use PeptoSport®?

    • 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 an 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 PeptoSport® different to PeptoPro®?

    PeptoPro® PeptoSport®
    Is an 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 PeptoSport® Powerberry different to PeptoSport Citrus?

    PeptoSport® Powerberry is the original PeptoSport® with all its benefits but with a DIFFERENT FLAVOUR.
    Original PeptoSport® is available in Citrus flavour and now also available in Powerberry flavour!

  • Why is PeptoPro® in PeptoSport® 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.

  • Why use PeptoSport® and what are the benefits?

    PeptoSport®:

    • 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 PeptoSport® 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 the 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 PeptoSport®?

    Any athlete that needs recovery of muscle proteins and glycogen stores. As every batch of PeptoSport® 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 PeptoSport® be used?

    – Just add water
    – All-in-one powder
    – More convenient
    – Best consumed chilled
    – Peptides are bitter by nature, adjust to taste

    PeptoSport® Powerberry is mixed and consumed according to the athlete’s weight.

  • When is the best time to use PeptoSport®?

    • If the exercise is longer than 60 min and high intensity PeptoSport®  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 PeptoSport®  every 15 – 30 min. Ensure that the PeptoSport®  was mixed correctly with an energy drink and according to the athlete’s weight!
    • PeptoSport®  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. It is recommended that PeptoSport® added to water 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.
