BPeptide is an anti-hypertensive supplement that contains Ameal Peptide, a naturally-derived ingredient from the milk protein casein.
WHAT IS BPEPTIDE?
BPeptide is an anti-hypertensive supplement that contains Ameal Peptide, a naturally-derived ingredient from the milk protein casein. Ameal peptide is composed of lactotripeptides: valyl-prolyl-proline (VPP) and isoleucyl-prolyl-proline (IPP).
WHY SHOULD YOU CHOOSE IT?
BPeptide is used for the lowering of high blood pressure levels to achieve healthier blood pressure levels. The lactotripeptides work similar to angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitors that block the production of angiotensin II to lower elevated blood pressure levels.
WHAT IS BPEPTIDE?
Orally, 1 capsule twice daily or 2 capsules once daily, or as prescribed by a physician.
WHY IS IT BETTER
BPeptide’s naturally-derived ingredients are rated as generally regarded as safe (GRAS) in the United States and food for specified health uses (FOSHU) in Japan. It is very well tolerated with little to no adverse effects. Further, numerous clinical studies have been conducted to show its efficacy in lowering blood pressure levels.
