The Full Story
Peptides are tiny proteins made up of short chains of amino acids. They signal the cells in your body to perform in specific ways. Some peptides are designed to simulate human growth hormone (HGH) and are referred to as growth hormone-releasing peptides (GHRP), while others are designed to support specific goals such as weight loss and reduction of joint and muscle pain.
WHAT ARE PEPTIDES?
Peptides occur naturally in the human body and are considered the building blocks of proteins. With more than 7,000 known peptides in humans alone, these chains of amino acids are known to regulate a wide range of biological functions and processes in our bodies and also provide a wide range of therapeutic applications.
BENEFITS OF ADVANCED CARDIAC TESTING FOR WEIGHT LOSS
Some of the many bodily functions peptides are involved in include:
Immune system function
Some peptides are even used to signal the production of proteins, while a named few actually function as hormones themselves. Furthermore, carrier peptides deliver nutrients where they are most required in the body, like the transportation of magnesium or copper to the skin for collagen production. Here’s the problem, the number of peptides in our bodies decrease in abundance and function with age. Age, stress, and changes in diet can cause peptide production disruption, resulting in peptide degradation. Luckily, peptide injections are a widely available option that can help offset this peptide disruption.
THE POSITIVE EFFECTS OF PEPTIDE THERAPY AND RESTORATION
People with different health and performance goals often consider therapeutic peptides, as they may be used for hormone replacement, medical weight loss, pain relief, and even anti-aging purposes.
BENEFITS OF PEPTIDE INJECTIONS
Peptides are easily injected into the body, thereby delivering them directly into the bloodstream where they can circulate throughout the body. Some peptides can be injected under the skin, into muscle tissue, or near the site where the greatest effects can be seen (like an injured area).
ARE PEPTIDES HELPFUL FOR HEALING INJURIES?
As the production of hormones has become better understood, the field of peptide therapy has been able to uncover various functions and applications. Replacing regulatory peptides treats injuries and other health conditions including:
Regulating hormones: largely managed by peptides, hormone production regulates many functions, especially healing capacity.
Increasing amino acid concentrations: By delivering peptides to a targeted area, the concentration of amino acids increases in areas of concern.
Healing damaged cells: By introducing the regenerative peptide Thymosin Beta 4, or TB4, to damaged tissue can stimulate cell healing/migration, muscle generation, and hair regeneration.
