Peptan® Supports Senior Musculoskeletal Health at IFIA

Rousselot/Peptan, stand AB 1124, ifia Japan, 18-20 May 2016, Tokyo

World leading collagen peptides brand, Peptan®, produced and marketed by Rousselot, will be showcased at ifia Japan 2016.  Experts at the stand will highlight how Peptan collagen peptides help manufacturers meet the growing demand for healthy aging ingredient solutions to support musculoskeletal health and can be integrated into a wide range of applications. Benefits of taking Peptan in preventing locomotive syndrome will be further detailed during a keynote seminar hosted by Mai Nygaard, Global Director for Peptan, and Unitec Foods experts.

A bioactive and evidenced ingredient for senior health and nutrition

Collagen is the most abundant protein in the body. It is present in all connective tissues and responsible for the infrastructure of bones, tendons and joints, as well as muscle fibers.  Peptan collagen peptides have an impressive bank of scientific data documenting their multiple health credentials for the senior generation.  This extensive research includes supporting mobility through improving joint flexibility and reducing discomfort, promoting effective cartilage maintenance through stimulating chondrocyte activity, maintaining healthy bones and bone metabolism, and boosting skin collagen density and hydration. Collagen peptides are also proven to support lean muscle mass and strength.  At the event a new study demonstrating Peptan’s ability to regenerate cartilage tissue and reduce inflammation in the joints will be presented. 

“Collagen peptide’s role in preventing locomotive syndrome” explained by experts

At the keynote seminar (16.00-17.15, May 19th, Washington Hotel) entitled “The effect of Peptan on joint health, bone health and muscle,” Ms Nygaard, together with Peptan partner Unitec Foods, will explore the bioavailability of Peptan collagen peptides and its growing body of scientifically documented benefits for joint, bone and muscle health.  Peptan’s unique position as an active ingredient to support senior musculoskeletal health and help prevent locomotive syndrome will be highlighted, and new Peptan research data with a focus on in vivo and placebo controlled clinical studies will be unveiled.
