What are Peptides?

Peptides are naturally occurring amino acids which your body makes. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins, which are required for every function of your body. One small difference is that a peptide does not have as many amino acids as a protein does. Peptides which you may get in medications, supplements or otherwise are made to mimic exactly those your body makes naturally. 

Peptides are effective and often are used in medications that support individuals suffering from various conditions. There has been significant scientific research on Peptides which has found among their many benefits that they also support health weight control, muscle building, skin health and anti-aging. This ever expanding body of research is one of the reasons you are hearing more about Peptides and beginning to see them in more dietary supplements over the counter.

What Do Peptides Do?

There are many different forms of Peptides, each of which has a different responsibility and presents and different opportunity for supporting on-going health.  Below are some of the benefits which have been identified by research into Peptides:

Healthy and Sustainable Muscle Growth.

Creatine and collagen peptides help boost muscle growth or muscle repair.

Weight Loss

There is a growing body of research and some excitement about the ability for Peptides to support healthy weight loss as we age. The scientific logic is that as Peptides are the building blocks of essential proteins which modulate our metabolism and hormone levels, by supplementing or introduce via injection or other modality additional Peptides into our system we will be better able to support the natural function of our metabolism and support healthy hormone levels.

Skin Care and Anti-Aging Effects.

Antimicrobial Peptides can support healthy skin, including elasticity and healthy skin pigment. These Antimicrobial Peptides are often delivered in the form of Collagen.  There are also peptides which support healthy levels of melanin a naturally occurring substance which supports the reduction of with hyperpigmentation or “age spots.”

What are Injectable Peptides?

Injectable Peptide Therapy

Injectable peptide therapy is a type of natural treatment that helps stimulate different hormones and organ systems of the body. Rather than giving exogenous hormones directly to the body these therapies help to stimulate your body’s own natural production and release of these hormones.

For example the Growth Hormone releasing hormone peptides help stimulate the body’s own natural release of Growth Hormone. When we are young Growth Hormone helps us grow. As we age Growth Hormone helps in the repair and metabolic maintenance of the body. It naturally declines over time. By stimulating its natural release in our body Growth Hormone peptides can help you lose weight, convert fat to muscle and boost your overall energy stores.

Injectable Peptide therapy isn’t for everyone. For Growth Hormone peptide you need to be pretty metabolically fit to even be considered a candidate. It works best for people over the age of 45 who are healthy and have just a few pounds to lose or want more muscle and increased energy.

What are the Side Effects of Using Peptides?

Peptides are often considered a highly viable option and one of preference for treating a number of conditions. This is because peptides have a low likelihood of serious side effects. Peptides are very different from ‘anabolic steroids’ which can have lead to mood instability including ‘raging’ and Peptides are also different from medication like Viagra which has its own series of potential side effects such as change to color perspective and even hearing loss.

As with all recommendations, you should consult with your physician as side effects vary per person.

Thymic Peptides and What They Are Used For
May 3, 2021
Thymic peptides can help enhance the Adaptive immune response. In certain viral infections the immune system gets stuck in the innate/ initial non-specific immune response and has trouble moving into the adaptive or specific immune response where the body can finally get a handle on the infection. The innate responses spirals out of control and more and more inflammation is produced eventually leading to something called a cytokine storm. By...
GHRH Peptides and How They Stimulate Human Growth Hormone
April 29, 2021
GHRH Peptides are small amino acid chains that naturally stimulate receptors to release Growth Hormone (GH). GHRH peptides naturally stimulate the release of Growth Hormone in the body. They mimic the natural protein in our body called Somatocrinin which is produced by the Hypothalamus and induces a release of Growth Hormone from the Pituitary gland.Once released in the body GH helps to:❇️ Increase metabolism❇️ Burn fat❇️ Build muscle❇️ Help with...
