Why aren't the swallowed peptides digested into amino acids, like other proteins?

PreCardix® bioactive marine peptides are derived from sustainable cold water Arctic Prawns (Pandalus Borealis) through a process called controlled enzymatic hydrolysis. This process breaks down prawn proteins into smaller fragments called peptides. These proprietary PreCardix® peptides have been clinically proven to have a statistically significant effect on blood pressure health.

These peptides remain intact in the digestive system and enter the blood stream where they have an ACE inhibiting action. Further breakdown of these peptides occurs in the blood plasma, liver, and kidneys, and enzymatically where the peptides become amino acids, after the peptides have had the intended effect.

Always consult with your health care provider before making changes to your blood pressure management plan. PreCardix® does not treat, cure or prevent medical conditions. Measure and monitor blood pressure regularly. Know the signs of heart attack and stroke. Do not take PreCardix® if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have renal artery stenosis, history of angioneurotic edema or shellfish allergy.
