Need an Energy Boost? Polysaccharide Peptide Blend Delivers

Polysaccharide Peptide Blend (PEP) is a dietary supplement designed to improve both energy and mood. Added to a drink at the beginning of the day, PEP provides essential vitamins, minerals, and fatty acids to promote your body and mind’s optimal performance.

While PEP’s ingredients give your body a boost of energy in the short term, they also improve long term health by promoting circulation, lowering inflammation, and acting as antioxidants.

This article will discuss the key sciences of the Polysaccharide Peptide Blend:

Peptide Blend

PEP is composed of lignans, polysaccharides, polypeptides, vitamins, minerals, and dietary fibers. These ingredients are responsible for giving the body extra energy and promoting better metabolism. The blend is also designed to maintain the health of the stomach and digestive tract.


Hesperidin is found naturally in citrus fruits like oranges. Hesperidin is a bioflavonoid, a type of natural compound that acts as an antioxidant and promotes blood flow. Hesperidin works together with vitamin C, another ingredient of PEP, to promote collagen growth.

Hesperidin is thought to improve blood flow, and thus has been used to treat related conditions like:

  • Hemorrhoids
  • Endometriosis, a condition in which uterine tissue is found elsewhere in the body, resulting in pelvic pain
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Fibroid tumors, which are usually benign and found in the uterus

Polysaccharide Peptide

Polysaccharides are macromolecules, or large molecules, composed of carbohydrates. Polysaccharide peptide is derived from the edible mushroom Coriolus versicolor.

It is being tested as an anti-tumor medication, but there is also some evidence that polysaccharide peptide may have other treatment benefits including:

  • Promoting the health of the respiratory, urinary, and digestive tracts
  • Providing anti-virus and anti-tumor properties
  • Treating liver conditions like hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis

Essential Fatty Acids

PEP includes three fatty acid: omega 3 and 6, which are essential, and omega 9, which is non-essential. The body has the ability to produce non-essential fatty acids. Essential fatty acids, though no less necessary, are not made naturally in the body and must be derived from the diet. They serve a number of functions, including ensuring proper brain and cardiovascular functions while also promoting healthy skin and weight.

Omega 3

Omega 3 is found in fish like salmon, tuna, and halibut, as well as other marine life and certain plants and oils.

There are three forms of omega 3:

  1. Alpha-linolenic acid (ALA)
  2. Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA)
  3. Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA)

When ALA is ingested, the body converts it into either EPA or DHA, which the body can metabolize.

Omega 3 fatty acids have been linked to a host of benefits in the body, including:

  • Reduction of inflammation
  • Prevention of chronic diseases like cancer, heart disease, and arthritis
  • Improved cognitive function including memory and performance

Omega 6

Omega 6 fatty acids are found in meats, nuts, and oils and come in several forms:

  1. Linoleic acid (LA), found in plant oils.
  2. Gamma-linoleic acid (GLA), found in plant oils like evening primrose oil, borage oil, and black currant seed oil.
  3. Arachidonic acid (AA), found in meat. AA can actually cause inflammation, but this is generally tempered by anti-inflammatory effects of GLA.

Omega 6 fatty acids promote:

  1. Skin and hair growth
  2. Bone health
  3. Maintaining good metabolism
  4. Reproductive health

To get the most beneficial results, omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids must be used together. Omega 6 fatty acid tends to have pro-inflammatory effects in the body while omega 3 is anti-inflammatory. To balance one another, a safe ratio is two to four times more omega 6 than omega 3, as is common in many Mediterranean diets. The ratio can even be as low as 1:1. However, many North American diets include about a 16:1 ratio of omega 6 to omega 3, an imbalance that could potentially contribute to inflammatory diseases and other chronic conditions.

Omega 9

Omega 9 is a non-essential fatty acid since it is produced in the body. However, it is still helps the body to get additional omega 9 from dietary sources.

Most often found in nut oils like canola or olive oil, omega 9:

  • Lowers bad cholesterol and raises good cholesterol, reducing cardiovascular disease.
  • May be useful for regulating blood sugar levels.

  1. I have used many of your products, including supplements, and as the new year has begun – I am focusing on health, vitality and weight loss. I work with senior citizens every day and by watching them pop pills to wake, get thru the day and go to sleep – I am determined NOT to do that!I would LOVE to try the PEPTIDE blend for myself.

  2. I just bougut a product for the skin tonight at Sephoria. I am trying your product called, ” Super” omega moisture with chia in it. It feels good on the skin, non oily. It already feels good. I will be using this each day,and i will tell you of the results. I love your products. I am interested in ( pep) thank you, Joan Bryant -Hollywood,CA.

  3. I was just told that psp will help my nasal polyps. I would love to try this product. I have been congested since last May. If this will help get rid of my polyps, it will be a miracle.
    Thank you so much.

  4. I read where this cures autism, and I think it will cure ptsd and a form of schitzophrenia. My daughter is a rape victim and the doc’s have put her on meds, and I think she just had the crap scared out of her and is missing minerals in her brain. And, all this stress is killing me, so can we both be testers? Or I will research more and just buy some of this.

  5. Please, may I be a tester for these – I have no thyroid and I fight fatigue all the time!!
    Thank you

  6. I am almost back to my pre pregnancy size. My son will be 2 in August. I am sluggish in the morning and no matter how many sit ups I do my little ‘pooch’ isn’t completely gone.

  7. This product really has me interested. It is
    quite pricey but if it worked I would buy it.
    If you pick me to be a tester and this product works, you have the potential of getting many orders from my family, friends
    and co-workers. I have changed my lifestyle
    over the past few years and feel and look better than ever before and many who know me ask what is it I’ve been doing and I am always looking for new and exciting things to try and stay healthy.

  8. I am 44 and I very interested in taking care of myself from the inside out, exercising, and eating right. I don’t have as much energy as I like and would like to encourage women my age to try something like this if it works for me. I believe in taking care of myself not plastic surgery.

  9. I’ve suffered from fibromyalgia for over a decade. Finding natural supplements that boost energy, combat fatigue and depression has been my mission. This sounds like a great product for all of those symptoms!

  10. I am writing on behalf of my husband. He is only 41 and cannot work anynore. About 5 years ago he had an 8hr surgery on his liver to remove a 13 by 17 cm tumor. It was life or death. From the surgery, he developed chronic pain and chronic fatigue. He was a Chirpractor and had to stop working. His body totally changed. He never feels good and is always tired and he has inflammation in his body. This is why he should win.

  11. I would like to try it as I currently have a lot of stress in my life due to financial situation and having to take on extra job duties at work. I feel very tired, not eating right, bloated, not sleeping properly and would love to see if this helps.


  13. I just turned 50 and a doctor a few years has told me in the past that my serum level show that I have elevated inflammation levels.

    This is why I’d like to test the peptide formula.
    Thank you

  14. would like to become a product tester
