FAQ

  • Q: Have you done clinical trials with the product?
    A: Re-Gen Peptides is not a medicine, it is a food supplement, only medicines have clinical trials. We are not targeting any particular benefits and have not modified the natural extract in any way, therefore it is simply nutrition. The benefits that are experienced are what you are supposed to be feeling from protein, but usually don’t in other forms of protein because of digestive kinetics, hormone responses, energy requirements and various other factors which are still being identified by studies.
  • Q: How can such a small amount of protein be so effective compared to large amounts of other protein supplements?
    A: The structure of our product is completely different to other forms of protein, whether dietary or supplements. It does not have the overhead of digesting protein or processing amino acids. The digestion and metabolism of protein is still on a learning curve for science, with many conflicting results from clinical trials in this regard. The efficacy of the protein is demonstrated from the first time it is taken, which demonstrates how effective it is as a protein source.
  • Q: How can a tablet be absorbed quicker than liquid amino acids?
    A: Studies demonstrate that the peptide transport mechanism is a lot more efficient than amino acids and the uptake of peptides into the body also a lot more efficient, making not only the absorption better, but the overall efficacy much higher than liquid amino acids. Free amino acids also tend to be oxidised by the body and converted to glucose, making them very inefficient.
  • Q: How can a protein supplement cause my pain to suddenly disappear, is there something else in the product? I eat a lot of protein and nothing else has helped my pain.
    A: There is also iron, minerals and electrolytes in Re-Gen Peptides, nothing else is added. The mechanisms around pain are not fully understood by science and whilst this question is asked a lot about our product, it cannot be fully answered by science.
  • Q: What happens to any excess amino acids that the body doesn’t need?
    A: They will be oxidised by the liver and converted to energy, but this is highly unlikely, the usage in the body is very high, being used for everything from production of hair to enzymes, unless the body is in peak condition, the likelihood is that they will be used by the body.
  • Q: Best times to take amino acids?
    A: Spread out over the day – morning and afternoon works well, before bed is also useful, especially when seeking recovery.
  • Q: Will they increase or reduce appetite, or neither?
    A: It will vary from person to person. Usually cravings are reduced or eliminated, in which case appetite in that person will reduce drastically, whilst others will feel more strength and endurance and as a result, will burn more calories, so may increase their appetite to compensate.
  • Q: If there is no digestion required then where or how are they absorbed?
    A: They are absorbed via the PEPT1 transporter system in the brush border membrane located in the duodenum, jejunum, and ileum.
  • Q: Surely the stomach acids will destroy some of the aminos?
    A: The role of stomach acid is to activate Pepsin for the hydrolysis (breaking down) of protein, the peptides are unaffected.
  • Q: Is it better to take on empty stomach or with meals?
    A: In the absence of any specific knowledge about the meals, it is theoretically better to take on an empty stomach, however the peptides have demonstrated themselves to be equally effective when taken with meals. There may be some competing reactions in some meals, especially ones loaded with chemicals, but this is usually not the case. Take it whenever it is most convenient, maintaining the intake is more important than differentiating with or without a meal. Coffee will retard the uptake of the iron in the product, so avoid taking with coffee or other stimulants.
  • Q: Can I take them consistently over years?
    A: Yes, they are nutrition from a natural source, with no allergens, no stimulants, no artificial flavours, no negative effects to anyone who can consume protein. The RDA for protein varies depending on who you ask, but up to 80 grams per day is recommended, whilst the dosage of Re-Gen Peptides is 3 to 6 grams per day. It can never exceed any kind of tolerance levels in anyone.
  • Q: What side effects do amino acids have?
    A: Theoretically, a natural source of amino acids in a balanced ratio to human requirements in an optimal source for absorption, taking only a few grams a day, has no known side effects. However, applying the question generally, including other products, taking unbalanced ratios of amino acids in large quantities can cause severe imbalances in the body and negatively affect biological functions, in particular if the liver is overloaded.
  • Q: Can I bite them in half or will it reduce the absorption?
    A: Yes, you can bite them in half, it will not affect anything.
  • Q: Will the organic iron in them have any negative effects. 
    A: Heme is the most absorbable form of iron and a constant intake is required by our bodies, so it is another essential nutrient which the body needs. Iron deficiency is the most common disorder on earth – according to the WHO, 30% of the earth’s population suffer from iron deficiency, so a good source of iron is essential.
  • Q: Where are they manufactured?
    A: They are manufactured in Western Europe.
  • Q: Why have no other supplement companies got pre-digested amino acid peptides?
    A: Because it has been one of the world’s best kept secrets until now.
  • Q: Are they safe to take if I have a chronic illness ie. Cancer, diabetes, asthma, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or if pregnant or breastfeeding?
    A: They are not a drug, they are a form of nutrition, so do not cause interference with biological processes. Depleted nutrient stores and balance is restored when taking the product, making it the preferred source of nutrition, no matter what the condition.
