Collagen Peptides are hydrolysed collagen fractures consisting of specific amino acid structures unique to collagen. These unique collagen peptides are highly bioavailable with a clinically proven absorption of 90%.
Studies confirm that PEPTAN® Collagen Peptides has a significant role as a sports recovery solution and help prevents injuries.
Collagen is a key component of the extracellular matrix sheath that en-wraps the muscle fibers, Collagen supplementation might either prevent damage to the sheath or allow it to repair more quickly.
Peptan helps to accelerate the process of recovery from muscle damage induced by intense exercise.
Collagen improves overall joint and bone strength, allowing for better mobility and thus supporting another vital aspect of an active lifestyle.
Tendons and ligaments are the connective tissue supporting the muscle and bones. These powerful tissues consist mainly of collagen type I. 85% of Tendons and 70% of Ligaments (measured on dry weight) consist of collagen type I.
It is therefore important to supplement with collagen type I to supply the correct amino acid peptides to serve as building blocks.
Clinically proven efficacy, safety and quality. Collagen peptide powder for skin health, joint health, bone health, connective tissue health.
Collagen makes up 30%of the protein in the body, it gives structure to your skin, bones and other tissue in the body and is commonly known as “The Glue That Keeps The Body Together”.
Sontal collagen peptide powder is hydrolysed collagen Type I, the most abandoned collagen in the body.
Collage Type I makes up 90% of all the collagen in the body and are predominantly found in the skin, bone, tendons, fibrocartilage and ligaments. It is a dense collagen fibre, the collagen with the highest tensile strength.
Typically, on dry-mass,
consists of collagen Type I.
Collagen powder is an important supplement in maintaining the collagen stores in the body.
