font size

How does Casein Peptides work?

Some casein peptides are thought to cause blood vessels to enlarge in diameter and therefore lower blood pressure.

Are there safety concerns?

Casein peptides are normally consumed in the diet from milk products. But there isn't enough information to know if casein peptides in dietary supplements are safe.

Special Precautions & Warnings:

Pregnancy and breast-feeding: Not enough is known about the use of casein peptides during pregnancy and breast-feeding. Stay on the safe side and avoid use.

Milk allergy: People with milk allergy are allergic to the proteins contained in milk. They may also be allergic to fragments of milk proteins, such as casein peptides. If you have a milk allergy, it's best to avoid taking casein peptides.

Surgery: Casein peptides might affect blood pressure. There is some concern that casein peptides might interfere with blood pressure control during and after surgery. Stop taking casein peptides at least 2 weeks before a scheduled surgery.
