VasoDrive-AP®

 

One of the most researched tripeptide ingredients for cardiovascular health, VasoDrive-AP (also known as AmealPeptide®) is said to improve arterial flexibility by increasing the production of endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS).*

Derived from milk protein through a proprietary enzymatic process, VasoDrive-AP occurs in very small amounts in casein as tripeptides, which are three specific amino acids joined together in a precise configuration.

It works to support arterial elasticity by inhibiting an enzyme that leads to the constriction of blood vessels.*

The two tripeptides in VasoDrive-AP are known as the lactotripeptides Valyl-Prolyl-Proline (VPP) and Isoleucyl- Prolyl-Proline (IPP); they are derived from the amino acids valine, proline, and isoleucine.

It is manufactured by enzymatically hydrolyzing casein in a precise manner with the protease derived from Aspergillus oryzae in such a way that the peptides are not damaged or broken down into their individual amino acids. They are also not degraded in the human digestive system because of their precise configuration and can be absorbed intact to be physiologically active.

These lactotripeptide combinations are not found in high enough quantities in common foods (such as dairy) to be sufficiently healthful.

Supported by more than 30 published studies — including over a dozen double-blind, placebo-controlled human clinical trials — VasoDrive-AP (Amealpeptide) promotes arterial elasticity.*  

VasoDrive-AP also boosts exercise performance by improving recovery and sustaining endothelial function throughout training cycles.* 

It additionally helps athletes with their “head game” by supporting healthy cerebral circulation and cognitive function.*

Research shows that VasoDrive-AP supplementation can:*

  • Improve arterial flexibility by potentiating the production of eNOS

  • Support healthy glucose utilization

  • Support cerebral blood flow and cognitive function

  • Improve recovery and sustain endothelial function throughout training cycles

  • Reduce muscle soreness after high-intensity exercise

  • Reduce mild exercise-related fatigue

  • Long-term solution for optimal intra-workout pump as well as post-workout recovery

 

VasoDrive-AP can be used in beverages as well as in dietary Supplements.

 

 

 

STATUS


FUNCTIONS

    MECHANISM OF ACTION

    VasoDrive-AP works by inhibiting an enzyme that leads to the constriction of blood vessels.* This vasodilating action is believed to be at least partly responsible for VasoDrive-AP’s clinically documented effect on cardiovascular health.*

    SAFETY

    In multiple human studies, VasoDrive-AP (AmealPeptide) exerted an effect in 3-4
    weeks, safely and with no side effects.* AmealPeptide is FDA GRAS for inclusion
    in food, beverages and dietary supplements in the US and is FOSHU-certified by
    the Consumer Affairs Agency, Government of Japan.

    While it is made from milk protein, the lactose levels in VasoDrive-AP (AmealPeptide)
    are undetectable (under .05%), so it is considered safe for those with lactose intolerance.*
