Elemental Peptides

Elemental Nutrition Peptides is a revolutionary supplement designed to aid muscle growth and repair, and support fast recovery from even the most intense workouts. This unique supplement is one of the first to combine di- and tri-peptides for quick absorption and fast assimilation into the blood stream & muscles.

Hydrolysed versus Intact Protein

As far back as the 1970’s, studies on protein digestion in humans revealed that the main products of protein digestion in the gut are not single amino acids, but rather dipeptides and tripeptides1, 2. Subsequent studies in humans have shown that a nitrogen load is absorbed more rapidly when it is delivered in the form of di- or tripeptides, rather than as whole protein or even as free amino acids1-6. Their superior absorption is mediated by a specific intestinal oligopeptide transporter called Pept-17, 8.

Importance of Degree of Hydrolysation

While it’s proven that dipeptides and tripeptides are absorbed faster than intact protein or free amino acids, it’s erroneous to assume that your typical hydrolysed whey protein contains any appreciable amounts of these peptides. For a hydrolysed whey protein to contain high levels of dipeptides and tripeptides, it must have a high degree of hydrolysis. This in turn requires a number of additional purification and extraction steps, which come at a significant cost. So rather than pay for a quality hydrolysate, many brands attempt to leverage the benefits of dipeptides and tripeptides by using cheap whey protein hydrolysates with a low degree of hydrolysis and minimal dipeptide and tripeptide content.

Benefits of Peptides

Not only does Elemental Nutrition Peptides contain whey protein with a high degree of hydrolysis, it contains specialised whey protein fractions specifically concentrated to contain high amounts of branched-chain amino acid dipeptides and tripeptides. Recent research has discovered that these branched chain dipeptides and tripeptides from whey protein mediate many of the specific benefits ascribed to hydrolysed whey protein. Some of these benefits include:

  • Increased insulin release – leading to improved muscle protein synthesis and glucose storage
  • Attenuation of muscle glycogen depletion during exercise
  • Stimulation of glucose uptake into muscle following exercise – leading to improved recovery
  • Improved endurance capacity with continued use
  • Quicker absorption9
  • Higher peak amino acid levels in blood following ingestion9

The graph below displays how branched-chain amino acids from hydrolysed whey protein are absorbed more rapidly and peak at higher levels in blood when compared to free-form branched-chain amino acids from normal whey protein.

The graph below shows the time course of the blood levels of essential amino acids (EAAs) when ingested from hydrolysed whey protein compared with normal whey protein.

The graph below displays the insulin response of whey protein hydrolysate compared to normal whey protein. As with the branched-chain amino acids above, insulin peaks higher and sooner following ingestion of whey protein hydrolysate. This is important as insulin is one of the most powerful hormones for muscle growth and recovery.

Faster & Higher Absorption of Peptides

High amino acid levels in blood together with high insulin levels is a potent anabolic stimulus. Elemental Nutrition Peptides provides a range of vital amino acids in a highly usable form, allowing for rapid uptake and stimulus of muscle protein synthesis. WIth its high branched-chain amino acid content, Elemental Nutrition Peptides also serves as an effective supplement for improving muscle recovery and reducing muscle soreness.

I was a bit curious about this product so I called up and asked about it. The guy on the phone told me its to help recovery. Gotta say it works pretty well. It's not the cheapest supplement but it helps me smash through my workouts pretty good.

I've been training for strongman for a while and let me tell you, it's intense. I used to pull up sore as hell after a long session and wouldn't be able to train for days. But using Peptides really helped. I'm a bigger fella, so I use 2 to 3 scoops. It helped cut my recovery down by a day or 2 and thats all I can ask for.

How is this product different from say BCAA product? I am not sure whether to purchase Elemental Nutrition BCAA+G or Peptides. Thanks
Elemental Peptides are an advanced form of BCAAs in peptide form. They are superior to regular BCAAs in absorption and their anabolic potential. For more information please refer to this article:
just curious how these peps go in inba testing. also how results go.
Elemental Nutrition Peptides are legal for use during competition for most competition bodies. However, as always, we recommend consulting with your regulatory body if you have any doubts.
can this be used with elemental nutrition HGH? also, would u still take amios during ur workout aswell?
Yes, Peptides can be stacked together with both HGH and regular aminos.
Is this for woman to use too? We train in X fit 3 days per week and weights for 2 days, but obviously don't wanna BULK up, just want to smash our workouts and be lean! Thanks! I have been using Extend and really like it, can I use them both??
Yes, Peptides would be suitable for use by women. When taken during a workout, it can promote faster recovery and prevent muscle breakdown. Stacking it with Xtend can be complementary and both products can work together to aid with recovery.
do you take elemental peptides post workout in place of a whey protein powder shake?
No, it is recommended you keep your protein powder for post workout. Peptides is best taken during a workout.
What age bracket is this best suited for? Can a 20 yr old take it? Thanks.
Elemental Nutrition Peptides is suitable for those over the age of 15. However, its effects are most pronounced for those with slower recovery, ie slightly older individuals.
Im interested in knowin about if these Peptides n ur HGH stuff would show up as a positive in a urine test as i work away in the mines in WA n ave been caught out before with sum supplements
Both Elemental Peptides and HGH contain no banned substances and should be okay for use, even if you are drug tested.
Thanks so much. Received my order the next day. That is AMAZING! Great prices and deals too.
