Q: What is Beta Peptide?
A: 30 serving Beta Peptide is a pre-workout and intra-workout performance drink proven to increase recovery and athletic performance. All of Beta Peptide's ingredients are supported by actual peer reviewed studies in humans for effectiveness. Beta Peptide contains no caffeine or stimulants, so you can take it whenever you want, pre-workout, intra-workout, or as an anytime cocktail. Benefits from Beta Peptide can be experienced by serious athletes and weekend warriors alike. Beta Peptide is a unique product packed with a powerful super foods blend comprised of 29 nutrient-dense fruits and greens, including 10 organic fruits providing naturally occurring antioxidants, enzymes, and dozens of phytonutrients. PeptoPro® is added as during intense exercise the body’s digestive capacity is dramatically reduced due to limited blood flow (up to 80%); since PeptoPro® contains more than 60% di- and tri-peptides (molecules so small that they need no digestion and can be absorbed by the body instantly) this keeps blood in muscle tissue, where you need it. With the addition of acid fighting Carnosyn® Beta-Alanine, Beta Peptide is a unique evidence based product for those looking for a product that actually does what it says.

Beta Peptide contains CarnoSyn® which is the patented form of Beta-Alanine. Beta-Alanine is a naturally occurring beta amino acid produced in muscle tissue as a component of carnosine. Carnosine (beta-alanyl-L-histidine) is a di-peptide composed of the amino acids beta alanine and histidine. Carnosine acts as a buffering agent, delaying acidic build-up that causes muscle failure and fatigue. Carnosine must be present to maintain intracellular pH. CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine is GRAS (Generally Recognized As Safe), free of banned substances, kosher, and safe for competitive and professional athletes. Benefits from supplementing Beta-Alanine include:
• Increases strength
• Improves endurance
• Speeds recovery from intense exercise
• Increases muscle carnosine for prolonged periods which delays fatigue
• Increases muscle buffering capacity
Recent research has continued the trend of investigating and demonstrating the performance enhancing effects of Beta-Alanine. In one study seventeen recreationally-active men participated in a randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study. The participants did two incremental treadmill tests before and after 28 days of supplementation with either beta-alanine (6g/day) or an equivalent dose of maltodextrin as the placebo. The researchers concluded that supplementation with Beta-Alanine for 28 days enhanced sub-maximal endurance performance by delaying onset of blood lactate accumulation.  In another study twenty two collegiate wrestlers and fifteen football players participated in a study and the researchers concluded that the subjects that received beta-alanine out performed subjects who received the placebo on all tests. Specifically the football group that received beta-alanine decreased their 300 yard shuttle time by 1.1 sec (vs. 0.4 sec. placebo) and increased their flexed arm hang time (3.0 vs. 0.39 seconds). In the wrestling group both the placebo and beta-alanine group lost weight however the beta-alanine group increased lean mass by 1.1 lbs, whereas the placebo group lost lean mass (-0.98 lbs). Both of the football groups gained weight however the beta-alanine group gained an average of 2.1 lb lean mass compared to 1.1 lb for placebo.  There have been many other peer reviewed studies demonstrating the performance enhancing effects of supplementing with beta-alanine. As a result of this evidence Beta Peptide delivers 2 grams of CarnoSyn® Beta-Alanine per serving.
Superfoods Fruits and Greens Blend
Everyone has probably heard the old adage “you are what you eat” well you have heard this because in large part it’s true. Many people simply do not eat enough superfoods. Superfoods make up a special category of foods found in nature. They are called superfoods due to them being a superior source of antioxidants and phytonutrients. The link between health and peak athletic performance is often lost in the shuffle. The fact of the matter is the body performs at its best when it’s healthy. Athletes put their bodies through lots of stress from intense training and as a result free radicals and oxidants increase in the body. Oxidants and free radicals are generated in the body when healthy cells are functioning properly as they are the by-products of normal metabolism. Now these by-products need to be neutralized and this where superfoods shine. Specifically the custom made high ORAC superfoods fruits and greens blend in Beta Peptide provide the following:
o Provides an ORAC (Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity) Value of 4,060 per serving
o Equal to 4 Servings of Vegetables
o 10 Organic Fruits providing Naturally Occurring Antioxidants, Enzymes, and Dozens of Phytonutrients
o 19 Whole Fruits and Vegetables
o Antioxidant Rich Green Tea Extract
o Antioxidant Rich Grape Seed Extract
Why use PeptoPro®?
Peptopro® is a hydrolyzed casein protein. Current whey protein hydrolysates on the market are obtained via 'classic' hydrolysis. This ‘classic’ form of hydrolysis leaves proteins tasting bitter and absorbed slower due to a large amount of left over larger peptides and free form amino acids that can cause some allergic reactions. Peptopro® uses a patented enzyme technology that breaks proteins down into the smallest of parts. There are different enzymes available depending on their preference for the place where they break through the amino acid chain. The broken up protein pieces are called peptides; they consist of at least two amino acids. In ‘classic’ hydrolysis exoproteases are used as they detach the first amino acid from a peptide chain, one at a time. These standard enzymes are used to cleave the protein and leave larger oligopeptides with a bitter taste. Peptopro® uses only endopeptidases and a new patented endoprotease with a preference for the amino acid proline. The resulting di- & tri-peptides are water soluble and no longer bitter. In this way the unique PeptoPro® production process ensures that fewer single amino acids are left over (<2%) and equally important, the bitter peptides are removed! In addition di- and tri-peptides do not lie in your stomach like a brick, which means that PeptoPro® can also be taken before, during, or immediately following training. This is important as during intense exercise the body’s digestive capacity is dramatically reduced due to limited blood flow to the gut (up to 80%), since PeptoPro® contains more than 60% di- and tri-peptides this keeps blood in muscle tissue where you need it. In addition to over 60% of PeptoPro® being smaller than 500 Dalton and di- and tri-peptides, molecular mapping indicates that it consists of less than 2% free form amino acids. The low level of free form amino acids is significant as the body prefers di- and tri-peptides as they are absorbed into the small intestinal epithelial cells by co-transport with H+ ions via a transporter called PepT1 . On the other hand in a competitive environment (i.e. other macronutrients in the gut) the amount of free form amino acids that can be absorbed at a given time is limited by competitive inhibition as they are oxidized and used for energy rather than protein .
• During intense exercise the body’s digestive capacity is dramatically reduced due to limited blood flow to the gut (up to 80%), since PeptoPro® contains more than 60% di- and tri-peptides this keeps blood in muscle tissue, where you need it.
• Molecular mapping indicates that PeptoPro® consists of less than 2% free amino acids
• Peptides obtained by ‘classic’ hydrolysis is extremely bitter, absorbed slower, and can cause some allergic reactions. They have no or only a low effect on raising insulin levels after exercise.
• The di- and tri-peptides in PeptoPro® are completely water soluble. They form a clear and stable solution which is not bitter. They are quickly absorbed by the body and stimulate insulin production. They are hypoallergenic and were thoroughly tested during the Athens Olympic Games in 2004.
• In a competitive environment, i.e. substances competing for absorption into the bloodstream di- & tri-peptides are much more stable than free form amino acids, are preferred by the body, and as a result are absorbed into the bloodstream much more efficiently.
Below is an illustration of the unique method of hydrolysation used to make PeptoPro®:
Why use PeptoPro® over whey protein hydrolysate?
Remember we discussed the ‘classic’ form of hydrolysis which leaves proteins tasting bitter, absorbed slower due to left over larger peptides and free form amino acids, and can cause some allergic reactions. The problem with whey protein hydrolysates on the market today is that there is yet to be a hydrolysation process to cure this problem. Also when compared to PeptoPro® whey protein hydrolysate has been demonstrated to be inferior. R Demling and L DeSanti carried out a study with 34 American police officers who were overweight. They all followed a hypo caloric diet (80% RDA) for 12 weeks. The second group received extra whey protein hydrolysate (1,5 g/kg/day) and the third group received extra PeptoPro® casein hydrolysate (1,5 g/kg/day). The results are illustrated in the table below:
As illustrated above all three groups lost body weight. The protein enriched diets led to a greater loss of body fat and increased lean body mass which resulted in a measureable increase in muscle power! Both proteins, whey and casein, were given in the form of hydrolysates, the difference lays in the absorption rate.
