The Ins and Outs
of Peptide Therapy
The use of peptides in healthcare has grown rapidly in the past few years and is at the forefront of functional medicine because of the various benefits it provides. Many medical professionals are now offering Peptide Therapy to treat various dysfunctions in patients of all ages. If you’ve been looking for a way to improve your overall health and reach optimal wellness, this may be the treatment for you.
What are Peptides?
Peptides are short chains of amino acids that link together to create protein in the body. There are over 7,000 known peptides within the human body, and although many seem similar, they are distinct in their own way. Though small, peptides play a big role in how you think, look, and feel. Peptides guide and instruct other parts of the body on what functions to carry out, thus regulating various human processes. Peptides also support collagen production and elastin in the skin, fight bacterial, viral, and fungal infections, and act as hormones. Our bodies produce peptides naturally, however, with age, production and quality of peptides may decline.
What is Peptide Therapy?
Peptide Therapy is the targeted use of peptides to produce a desired result in the body and stimulate cellular regrowth systems. Typically, peptides are injected directly into the bloodstream, but there are alternatives like topical creams and oral forms. When administered through the bloodstream, results will be faster acting since peptides are easily absorbed through the gut and skin.
Research has shown that some peptides can promote the natural production of the Human Growth Hormone (HGH), which is necessary for brain and organ tissue production, increased muscle mass, and metabolism health. Peptide Therapy will give you the same benefits you would receive with HGH Therapy by increasing hormone production and teaching your body to repair itself without the hormonal side effects (and at a fraction of the price). Peptide Therapy can be customized depending on the condition being treated.
