Peptan / Sports nutrition


Accelerating your sports recovery with Peptan collagen peptides


Sports is all about maintaining, or improving, our level of performance and fitness. In order to do this, we must keep our bodies in good condition in terms of strength and muscle mass. We should be aware that an intensive training program with short recovery times raises the risk of injury, while strengthening the joints, bones, tendons and ligaments – to prevent injury.

With a unique amino acid profile, collagen peptides –  a pure protein – contain high levels of the amino acids glycine, hydroxyproline, proline, alanine and arginine – providing specific sport nutritional benefits. In short, they offer multiple benefits linked to recovery and connective tissue support. (1)
