Collagen Peptides

Collagen is one of the most important nutrients needed to to ensure the health and vitality of your skin, hair, tendon, cartilage, bones, and joints. Collagen production typically slows at a rate of 1.5% per year after the age of 25.

Supplementing daily with Collagen Peptides may help to counteract these effects.

Jeff Pedersen was a promising athlete ready for the big leagues. He attended Fermin Lasuen High School in San Pedro where he earned 9 varsity letters and held numerous records. He was voted Athlete of the Year in 1968 and was a high round draft pick by the Chicago Cubs, but he chose a USC baseball scholarship instead. At USC, he was the first player in NCAA college history to start on three straight National Championship baseball teams, serving as team captain in 1972, and was selected to represent USC in the Pan American Games.

Jeff had a pretty incredible career, but ultimately an injury placed Jeff onto to a different path in life where he became a fitness educator and product inventor, and he is now the owner of Sports Research and creator of Sweet Sweat. At the time Jeff did not realize this one of a kind product would lead to the development of a company.

Jeff developed Sweet Sweat in the late 1970s for his 500-member athletic club to help enhance and accelerate their workout programs. Although it took almost four years of daily physical testing on himself as well as his club members to get the product right, the results were so impressive and immediate that friends of the members were asking if they could also use Sweet Sweat. A decision was then made to put this “one of a kind” fitness product on the market in 1980. Present day Sports Research carries over forty skus, and Sweet Sweat has now mushroomed to being exported to 53 countries around the world and is used by amateur and professional athletes in bodybuilding, boxing, football, mixed martial arts, track and field, and other sports to substantially improve circulation, energy, and sweating.

Do you have a question you'd like to ask? Visit us here!

Sports Research is dedicated to helping each customer reach and sustain their ideal body and wellness goals through proven high quality products. A “hands-on” family owned company of athletes and health and fitness advocates, Sports Research has achieved an impeccable reputation worldwide in the fitness and wellness community. So as an accomplished athlete and businessman, we wanted to ask Jeff some questions about his company to glean some lessons, and learn more about the products that he offers.

Jeff, What were some of the unexpected hurdles you encountered getting started?

Word of mouth promoted the product sales. It was simply about spreading the word to other cities and states. The real challenge was trying to get National Distribution and bring Sweet Sweat to all the athletes and fitness people nationally and globally.

What were some of the unexpected benefits?

It’s a great honor seeing professional athletes worldwide use our products on a continual basis.

What has been the most exciting part of your process?

The most exciting part of my process is having all 6 of my children asking to be involved in my company. It’s a privilege to be able to work so incredibly hard and to share both the good and bad times with my family. We push each other to take our products and company to the next level.

What has your experience in Sports Research Corp taught you?

Persistence is a must. It took 4 years to create his one of a kind fitness product “Sweet Sweat.” He still continues to research and test each product no matter how long it takes to make it work and repeat in sales.

What is your favorite story from your experience?

In 35 years, literally having thousands of people say how our products have changed their fitness lives.

What should everyone should know about the Sports Research Corp?

Sports Research Corporation develops products that we research and test that can be:

  1. Demonstrated.
  2. That have that “wow” factor.
  3. That are easy to use.
  4. That are priced right.
  5. And the products repeat in sales.

If you could change one thing in the fitness landscape, what would it be?

Getting rid of the fake products.

Jeff Pedersen, looking back on your life, is this where you thought you would be?

Because of God’s blessings, yes.

Thanks for the insight, Jeff.

About Us : 

Established in 2010, The Paleo Foundation was first organized for the purpose of improving the tolerability of the paleo diet, and to help adherents easily identify products that met its basic tenets.  Since then, thousands of products have been certified through the Certified Paleo, Keto Certified, and lab -tested Grain-Free Gluten-Free certification programs.



100% of  Paleo Foundation revenue is generated through certifications.  We do not accept donations, corporate sponsorships, or financially benefit from the sales of any certified products, product giveaways, or partnerships with industry contacts or retailers for the purpose of maintaining the integrity of an impartial certification standard. 

Certified Paleo logo Certified Paleo:

Each certification program has a different set of standards.  Certified Paleo is the Paleo Foundation’s first, most popular, and highest level of certification for Paleo-compliant products.  Certified Paleo Products are products that contain Paleo ingredients, but may have some 21st-century processing or packaging methods allowing for shelf stability.


Grain Free Gluten Free Certified LogoGrain-Free Gluten-Free: 

Grain Free Gluten Free Certified products are gluten-free and do not contain any grains of gliadin competitive residues.  All Grain-Free Gluten-Free products have undergone two rounds of audits, including lab tests, and a final review to become approved for the Grain-free Gluten-free Certified Program. 



Keto Certified LogoKeto Certified: 

The ketogenic diet is a restrictive, demanding diet that can be difficult to maintain, and tolerability of the ketogenic diet is the single most important factor limiting individual acceptance for initiation.  Therefore, improving the tolerability of the ketogenic diet is crucial to preventing diet discontinuation, warranting further investigation into methods for improving palatability, improving the availability and convenience of foods that are compliant with the ketogenic diet, as well as addressing cultural and social acceptance.

The Keto Diet product market may be in a unique position to improve tolerability, especially in social and cultural environments that typically feature carbohydrate-rich “special occasion” types of foods. In 2016, the Paleo Foundation launched the world's first Keto Certified program for products with standards that were developed for adherence to a classical ketogenic diet.
