Want to see how Peptisip Energy HP performed in its clinical trial? 

Peptisip Energy HP has been studied7 in a variety of patients with complex conditions requiring a peptide-based ONS. Results from four of these patients have been collated in a series of clinical case studies, which are presented in this booklet. The case studies are intended to help educate healthcare professionals about the role of Peptisip Energy HP and offer practical guidance on its use in managing patients with GI intolerance symptoms.
