Bioactive Peptan™

  Since ancient times, Hydrolyzed Collagen has been known to benefit human health. Nearly ten centuries ago, abbess and erudite Saint Hildegarde von Bingen, investigated animal tissue extracts and identified them to be beneficial in case of joint pain. The traditional Asian culture also recognizes Collagen as a cosmetic product, helping skin to remain firm and youthful, while ensuring a global anti-aging activity.

What is Collagen ?
  Collagen is a primary connective tissue; it represents close to 30 % of animal protein matter. Collagen is a key protein in the body that ensures the cohesion, elasticity and regeneration of skin, cartilage and bone. There are different types of Collagen, depending on the tissues from which it is derived.

What is Peptan™ ?
  Peptan™ are Type 1 Hydrolyzed Collagens, the same Collagen as that found in human bones and skin. Peptan™ is a high purity natural bioactive product containing more than 97 % protein (on a dry weight basis), supplied in a form that can be easily used and digested by the human body, as shown by scientific analysis (Asghar and Henrickson, 1982 and Rousselot, 2007).

A high source of typical amino-acids
  Peptan™ contains 20 amino-acids.
  It is characterised by the predominance of glycine, proline and hydroxyproline, which represents around 50 % of the total amino-acid content. Glycine and proline concentration is 10 to 20 times higher than in other proteins. This very specific composition of amino-acids provides Peptan™ with nutri-functional properties that cannot be found with other protein sources.
