Toopcham et al [7] reported that the tripeptide Met-CysSer, containing the branched-chain amino acid Met at the Nterminus, exhibited higher ACE inhibitory activity than that of tetrapeptide Ala-Leu-Ser-Cys.
The largest input of di- and tripeptides into the soil is likely to occur via hydrolysis of peptides (2 to ~50 amino acids) and proteins (>50 amino acids) during depolymerisation of soil organic matter.
Researchers believe that the ability of SPH to lower blood pressure is due to a combination of ACE inhibitory tripeptides, as well as additional unknown peptide species that are generated during digestion of SPH in the gastrointestinal tract.

Consumption of Lactobacillus helveticus fermented milk that contained the bioactive tripeptides isoleucylprolyl-proline and valyl-prolyl-proline was shown to be effective in reducing arterial stiffness in hypertensive patients with small to moderate effects.
Besides its clean taste, the new Optipep ingredient also offers a readily available source of di- and tripeptides. These are more rapidly absorbed into the intestine than free amino acids and protein hydrolysates containing larger peptides, and much more rapidly than intact protein.
Furthermore, dairy tripeptides such as valine-prolyl-proline (VPP) and isoleucine-proline-proline (IPP) from cultured dairy products have been shown to be vascular-healthy.
