Peptidea® is a fish protein hydrolysate supplement, in vegetarian capsules. It consists of peptides and 18 amino acids with a molecular weight lower than 1000 daltons. They acts as precursors of endorphins and other neurotransmitters such as serotonin and melatonin, which play a regulatory role in the nervous system.
They therefore help the body to adapt effectively to physical or mental stress. You can now buy this excelent supplement in Supersmart's online catalogue.
In response to stress, danger or emotion, the body initiates two mechanisms:
Cortisol, often called the 'stress hormone', is known to have a blood sugar-elevating effect. At high levels, it stimulates protein catabolism (formation of amino acids). During prolonged periods of stress, high levels of cortisol are secreted, potentially damaging the limbic system involved in emotion, as well as weakening immune defences.
Trials conducted on rats show that, under conditions of stress, Peptidea® helped reduce the intensity of ACTH secretion. Besides, in animals treated with Peptidea®, the rate of transport of adrenalin and noradrenalin was slower. Finally, a change in GABA levels (gamma amino-butyric acid) in the brain was observed, similar to that resulting from an injection of benzodiazepine.
Compared with benzodiazepines, orally-administered capsules of the fish peptides in Peptidea® showed a clear anti-stress effect in adult Wistar rats. Unlike benzodiazepines, Peptidea® produced this anti-stress action without any sedative effect, the animals maintaining all their adaptive capacity.
Previous studies had shown that fish protein hydrolysates has several benefits, including:
