What are peptides?

Peptides are the building blocks of proteins and are composed of amino acids that work to regulate a variety of biological functions and processes. These naturally occurring peptides act as signaling molecules within the body and instruct other cells and molecules on what functions to perform.

There are over 7,000 known peptides within the human body and though some may be similar each is responsible for facilitating a different response and action within the body. Some common functions of peptides include providing pain relief, aiding in soft tissue repair, accelerating healing processes, promoting weight loss and lean muscle gain, reversing symptoms of sexual dysfunction, and improving hormone production and cognitive function.

The unique property of peptides can be harnessed and used to treat specific conditions; this treatment process is known as peptide therapy.

Why are peptides important?

Because there are so many peptides in our body, there are a variety of key functions that involve peptides including preventing aging, obesity, osteoporosis, inflammatory diseases and more. Peptides also help with weight management, minimizing fat cells and body fat. As you can see, peptides play an important role in regulating our health.

Why is peptide therapy?

Though our bodies naturally produce peptides, the production of peptides can vary greatly by individual and as we age, the number and quality of peptides within the body may decline.

Peptide therapy refers to restoring the number of peptides to stimulate cellular regrowth systems within the body as a treatment option for specific conditions. Peptides are typically administered directly into the bloodstream through subcutaneous injections, but may also be applied as topical creams, nasal sprays, or oral forms.

This form of treatment can be entirely customized to the patient’s unique needs and goals. By using this targeted method, we can produce a specific reaction in the body and treat a variety of conditions.

What are the benefits of peptide therapy?

Peptide therapy is an extremely unique treatment option that can be used to treat a variety of concerns. Some of the benefits of peptide therapy can include, but are not limited to the following:

  • Accelerate healing processes
  • Build muscle mass
  • Decrease joint and muscle pain
  • Enhance cognitive function and memory
  • Help reverse symptoms of sexual dysfunction
  • Improve sleep quality
  • Increase levels of energy, stamina, and strength
  • Reduce signs of aging
