AmealPeptide®

About AmealPeptide

AmealPeptide is a clinically tested, proprietary ingredient derived from casein (a milk protein). It is produced through a patented fermentation and enzymatic process that releases two key tripeptides, Valyl-Prolyl-Proline (VPP) and Isoleucyl-Prolyl-Proline (IPP), (made up of the three amino acid chains valine, proline and isoleucine). AmealPeptide provides VPP and IPP in concentrations not practical to achieve through the consumption of dairy products.

Supported by more than 30 published studies — including over a dozen double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials — AmealPeptide helps maintain both systolic and diastolic blood pressure already within healthy limits and promotes arterial elasticity.**[i],[ii],[iii],[iv]

Mechanism of Action

AmealPeptide works by inhibiting an enzyme that leads to the constriction of blood vessels.* This vasodilating action is believed to be at least partly responsible for AmealPeptide’s clinically documented effect on blood pressure.*

Safety

In multiple human studies, AmealPeptide exerted an effect in 3-4 weeks, safely and with no side effects. AmealPeptide is FDA GRAS for inclusion in food, beverages and dietary supplements in the US and is FOSHU-certified by the Consumer Affairs Agency, Government of Japan.

While it is made from milk protein, the lactose levels in AmealPeptide are undetectable (under .05%), so it is safe for those with lactose intolerance.
