If you’re looking for the next-generation of supplements look no further than bioactive peptides. When different amino acids – the building blocks of proteins – join together they form peptides, and when these recently combined chains of amino acids perform a specific biological function they become known as bioactive peptides.
Studies under both in vitro and in vivo conditions have proven that bioactive peptides have numerous benefit effects on the digestive, endocrine, cardiovascular, immune and nervous systems. Now attention is being turned to how these compounds can improve muscle synthesis and the promotion of anabolic growth hormones, including IGF-1.
