Insulin is a peptide growth hormone that lowers blood glucose level, promotes glucose storage as glycogen and fat. Fasting decreases insulin production.

Insulin is a peptide hormone that has extensive effects on metabolism and other body functions, such as vascular compliance. Insulin causes cells in the liver, muscle, and fat tissue to take up glucose from the blood, storing it as glycogen in the liver and muscle, and stopping the use of fat as an energy source. When insulin is absent (or low), glucose is not taken up by body cells, and the body begins to use fat as an energy source. As the level of insulin is a central metabolic control mechanism, its status is also used as a control signal to other body systems (such as amino acid uptake by body cells).

The pancreas, kidney, stomach, intestine, placenta and liver produce peptide hormones. Insulin is made of two amino acid sequences. The chains are linked together through the sulphur atoms apparent in cysteine (Cys).

Promising first steps are made in supplementing peptide products to type 2 diabetes patients. Although the results are there, more studies are desired to further understand the optimal combination and diabetes.

Further information on peptides and insulin

Recov Bipeptides is a 100% pre-digested protein peptide supplement. Ultimate absorption and fast reabsorption is guaranteed. For amino acids to work they have to be digested fully. Digestion means that the protein in food have to be broken down into small amino acids chains called peptides. Healthy people can only transfer mono peptides, bipeptides and tripeptides into the blood. Those amino acids which are too long to digest or are mutated by heat, sun, chemicals and or fluids cannot be absorbed into the blood.

All amino acids play their role. If one is missing the whole process stops. Deficiency of good quality protein in the diet may contribute to seemingly unrelated symptoms such as sexual dysfunction, blood pressure problems, fatigue, obesity, diabetes, frequent infections, digestive problems, and bone mass loss leading to osteoporosis. Severe restriction of dietary protein causes kwashiorkor which is a form of malnutrition characterized by loss of muscle mass, growth failure, and decreased immunity.
Recov Bipeptides is a food supplement. Recov Bipeptides is not intended to diagnose, treat, cure or prevent disease.

Amino acids at work for your insulin level or tissue recovery

Histidine (Essential Amino Acid)
is essential for the growth and repair of tissues
Isoleucine (Essential Amino Acid)
stabilizes and regulates blood sugar and energy levels
Leucine (Essential Amino Acid)
lowers blood sugar levels
Alanine (None-Essential Amino Acid)
aids in the metabolism of glucose, a simple carbohydrate that the body uses for energy
Arganine (None-Essential Amino Acid)
  • aids in stimulating the pancreas to release insulin
  • in the pancreas it is used to release insulin.
Glutamic Acid(Non-essential Amino Acid)
important in the metabolism of sugars and fats
Glycine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
improves glycogen storage, thus freeing up glucose for energy needs
Ornithine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • stimulates insulin secretion and helps insulin work as an anabolic (muscle building) hormone
  • rejuvenation – promotes muscle-building activity in the body by increasing levels of anabolic (growth-promoting) hormones such as insulin and growth hormone
Taurine (Non-essential Amino Acid)
  • is important for the energy metabolism – the transformation of food into energy
  • useful for people with atherosclerosis, edema, heart disorders, hypertension, or hypoglycaemia
