PEPTIDES are the foundation

Peptides are the smallest chains of proteins / amino acids which participate in forming molecules in cells and they are essential for the healthy functioning of the cells in the organs and glands of the body.

With age and stress, as well as other external factors, these smallest building segments of the human body become damaged or missing in body, what is leading to ageing and various diseases.

 

Strengthening the weak, replenishing the missing

The principle of correcting this problem is to replenish these important living particles back into the cells themselves so that they can function properly again.

In order for the replenishment of peptides to be effective and revitalisation really take place on the cell level, it is necessary for the peptides to be very small (1 to 2 nanometres). Only in this way can they reliably pass through the cell walls into the cells and replenish missing peptides.

Thanks to this peptide replenishment into the cell bonds, it comes to regeneration and revitalisation of damaged vital organs, immune system, and skin from the very foundations – building molecules.

 

From natural to scientific

To achieve peptides in such small dimensions, the technological processing methods used at the Cell Core Laboratory include a tangential ultrafiltration of the initial biological material to a molecular mass up to 5 kilodaltons.

So that the peptides remain alive, this whole manufacturing process takes place at a temperature not exceeding 40 °C/104 F. For successful and long-lasting cell recovery is essential their bioactivity.

 

Origin matters

The peptides contained in RECONVEL products are of a biological origin – they are not synthetic, their natural bioactivity has been preserved and they are alive. They are ultrafiltered – so they have the ability to pass through the pores of cell walls into the cells themselves, and they have a remarkably high concentration -from 500 up to 4500 µg/ml.

Thanks to these characteristics they are ready to successfully recover damaged organs and skin, strengthen physical and mental condition, improve the immune system, to help with heeling allergies and damaged musculoskeletal system or improve the user’s general appearance.

 

Reconvel products are typically used once a day, being applied in liquid form under the tongue, or on the skin as a cream.

The period of use varies between individuals, but typically lasts from 4 to 8 weeks.

Bioactive peptide ultrafiltrates of animal origin have a long-lasting effectiveness, the phytopreparations remain active over the whole period of use.

 

 
 

Variety of active ingredients in Reconvel products with their inorganic substances, minerals, organic substances and particularly bioactive peptides, form an enormous basis for a broad-spectrum intervention against a given health problem.

 
 

 

Basic types of peptides

There are an enormous number of peptides which undertake a whole range of highly important functions in the body.

The basic types of peptides are proteins, carriers, enzymes, hormones, neuropeptides, alkaloids, antibiotics, and structural components.

Reconvel products contain all of the above types of peptides.

 

Proteins

Peptides are the molecules which build what are commonly known as proteins. All peptides are made up of amino acids which are chemically bound together. According to size, peptides can contain as few as two amino acids joined by a single bond - dipeptides and up to thousands of amino acids joined together in a chain - polypeptides.

Joined peptide bonds form proteins.

 

Transmitters

All cells have a protective membrane which prevents most substances from easily entering the cell. Some peptides work as “transmitters”, allowing essential substances to enter the cells through the cell membranes. For instance, glucose transmitters are essential for the transport of glucose from the blood to the muscles and other cells so that it can be used as energy.

As well, free radicals may leave cells thanks to transmitter peptides.

 

Enzymes

Enzymes are biological accelerators which speed up metabolic reactions. Most enzymes are peptides. There are hundreds of different enzymes in the body which speed up reactions contributing to a host of processes.

These processes include digesting food, producing energy, and linking cellular components.

 

Hormones

Hormones are types of peptides which transmit signals between glands and cells in the whole body, this helps the control of body functions. They work as biological messengers transmitting information by the blood from one tissue to another.

Among examples of peptide hormones belong for instance those, engaged with regulation the level of glucose in the blood, as insulin and glucagon, and those which regulate appetite for food, as ghrelin and leptin.

Neuropeptides

Neuropeptidy sú produkované v mozgu a sú súčasťou nervových tkanív. Tieto peptidy fungujú ako informačné procesory v celom tele, kde prenášajú signály spúšťané z mozgu.

Bežnou formou neuropeptidov sú napríklad endorfíny.

 

Alkaloids

Alkaloidy sú peptidy, ktoré sa bežne nachádzajú pri vývoji obranných mechanizmov v hubách, rastlinách a malých zvieratách, ako sú kôrovce.

Ergotamín, pandamine a dynorfin sú typy alkaloidných peptidov, ktoré sa podieľajú aj na ochrane a imunite ľudského organizmu.

 

Antibiotics

Antibiotics are peptides which prevent the growth of microorganisms in the body.

They are specifically used in the human body to destroy bacteria which cause disease.

 

Structural components

Peptides are also constructive elements in the body.

When peptide chains reach a longer length, they form proteins, which are the basic building blocks for parts of the human body, animals, and plants.

For instance, actin and myosin are important constructive elements of muscles. Peptides also contribute to the bones’ shape and firmness. Keratin is a part of hair and nails, and collagen is a part of tendons and ligaments.

 

Explaining peptides

Peptides are chains of amino acids connected by a peptide bond: the bond between the C-terminal of one amino acid and the N-terminal of another. Depending on the number of amino acids which create peptides, there are oligopeptides (2 to 10 amino acids), polypeptides (11 to 100 amino acids) and proteins (101 or more amino acids).

Peptides fulfil a number of various roles in organisms: these include the tripeptide glutathione, which is an enzyme co-factor protecting plants and animals from oxidative stress; peptides with hormonal effects, such as oxytocin and vasopressin; neuromodulators, such as encephalins and endorphins; natural antibiotics; plant, fungi, bee, and snake toxins; and peptide alkaloids. Peptides naturally present in the human body are important in all of the body’s biological functions, such as regulating the levels of sugar in the blood and the correct functioning of endocrine glands, organs, and systems.

Biologically active substances naturally occurring in organisms can be used for the whole body’s benefit, or for the benefit of particular organs. Their unique character and the absence of negative effects on the human body make them desired tools in the fight against disorders and diseases.

Specific ultrafiltrates are composed of peptides and other organic and inorganic components acquired from the cells of organs, systems of animal organisms, and the cells of plants, fungi, and resins, for finding a biological and physiological balance. These bioactive elements have a supportive, regenerative, and protective effect.

The molecular mass of the organic and inorganic elements in dietary supplements is standardised at 5 kDa, which is a size of 1 to 2 nm. The low molecular weight and small dimensions of the consumed bioactive substances ensure that they are absorbed by the blood vessels under the tongue. In order to ensure their stability and activity in the dietary supplement, these substances are kept in an isotonic physiological solution with a stable pH level.

Research has shown that the effects of bioactive substances have a high specificity for certain target receptors. Here they join in the “cell-to-cell” communication mechanism and trigger regenerative and revitalisation processes. Their high specificity also reduces the chances of dangerous interactions with other substances and significantly reduces the side-effects of the dietary supplement.
