“I started using Peptan as a nutritional supplement back in May, during a period of intensive training and racing. Gradually, I began to experience the benefits. Around June I noticed a relatively fresh feeling and my sprinting abilities had improved. That clearly contributed to my good performance during the Danish and Dutch national championships. I’m looking forward to seeing where Peptan will take us throughout the rest of the season!”
