- The nutrition of small peptides is better than protein
From a nutritional point of view, protein can only be absorbed when it is broken down into peptides, while small peptides can be absorbed directly. Excessive intake of protein will have certain side effects, because there are many decomposition products of protein in the animal body, including ammonia and ketones. Acid and urea have side effects on the animal body, which not only increase the burden on the liver, but also easily cause indigestion and affect the function of the kidneys. The intake of small molecular compound peptides will not cause excessive nutrition, but can also regulate the animal body and nutritional balance.
- Peptides are better absorbed and more powerful than amino acids
- In animals, amino acids are absorbed one by one when they absorb amino acids, and there is a competitive relationship between amino acids of the same structure, and when they are absorbed, several are absorbed together, and between the same peptides. There is no competitive relationship. Peptides are composed of two or more amino acids, and the absorption of peptides by animals has the characteristics of fast transport speed, low energy consumption, difficult carrier saturation, non-competitiveness and inhibitory properties.
Therefore, the animal body absorbs peptides more efficiently than amino acids. After the peptide is absorbed through the intestine, it directly enters the bloodstream and sends its own energy to all parts of the animal body.
- There are only 20 kinds of amino acids, which have countable effects, while peptides use amino acids as substrates to synthesize hundreds of thousands of kinds. Peptides are small-molecule proteins that are degraded and contain amino acid groups, which are raw material products.
