The Creation of the Bioactive Protein Peptide System
Hydrolyzed protein is that which is broken into smaller pieces by enzymes that produce small chains of amino acids called peptides. This process mimics our own digestive actions. Once hydrolyzed, these undenatured peptides have many benefits over and above whole protein sources. The gastrointestinal tract prefers peptides to whole proteins or amino acids; hydrolyzed proteins are more easily broken down and absorbed into the blood stream than whole protein sources. In fact hydrolyzed proteins may be absorbed in about half the time that it takes free form amino acids or whole proteins. This can lead to a more rapid delivery into the body. These principles are key in creating the proprietary protein hydrolyzate grouping—found within the Bioactive Protein Peptide System. These amino acid groupings promote not only rapid absorption and bio-availability for enhanced lean muscle mass development, but also functional benefits to the cardiovascular system. They benefit not only lean muscle mass development, but also the cardiovascular system.
Bioactive Protein Peptide System
Purification, Concentration, & Isolation
Utilization of membrane filtration and ion-exchange chromatography for the creation of purified and isolated whey protein.
Using enzymatic proteases, peptide bonds are broken and unique peptide fragments are created, increasing beneficial amino nitrogen levels and bio-availability.
Molecular Weight Profiling & Selection
Applying Size Exclusion Chromatography, functionally active individual peptide fragments are identified, selected, and concentrated.
An Added Plus… Weightloss
Eating protein increases one’s metabolic rate and nutrient balance. By virtue of this phenomenon, a higher protein diet may contribute to body fat losses. Research has shown, since protein foods require more “metabolic processing” than carbohydrates and fat, the metabolic increases seen when eating protein are higher than those seen when eating fat or carbohydrate. The metabolic increase seen with eating protein is just about double that of eating carbohydrates or fats.
What is C-Reactive Protein?
“Inflammation” is the process by which the body responds to injury. High levels of C-reactive protein (CRP) in the blood often indicate inflammation in blood vessel walls. In the last several years, it has become increasingly clear that inflammation of the arteries is a major player in the development of heart disease and athereosclerosis, the process in which fatty deposits build up in the lining of arteries. According to recent research high CRP levels may even be a better predictor of heart attacks than cholesterol levels. Additional studies also suggest higher levels of CRP may increase the risk that an artery will reclose after it has been opened by balloon angioplasty.

The Value of Isolates
High quality whey protein isolates offer the benefits of high nutritional value through branched chain amino acids (BCAA). They offer the following beneficial outcomes:
- Preserve muscle glycogen stores*
- Reduce the amount of protein and muscle breakdown during exercise*
- Promote lean muscle mass development*
- Provide high digestibility and absorption*
- Contain no lactose, and are very low in fat
- Enhance the body’s production of gluthathione, a natural antioxidant that supports the immune system*
Did You Know:
Studies demonstrate that both endurance and strength athletes often require more than double the protein of the average sedentary person.
The body has increased protein needs when it is injured or has an infection.
Protein serves as a building block in the production of antibodies and blood clotting factors. In addition, it is needed for the creation of enzymes and for body repair mechanisms.
Protein promotes an active metabolism. Unlike consuming carbs, which cause a spike in blood sugar, protein does not increase blood glucose levels.
